New York Fashion week F/W 2016-17 brought new looks as fashion goers braved the frigid temperatures and still managed to bring lots of style to the streets.  Rachel Guillaume and Hannan Saleh captured some accessorizing via the streets for us.  We decided to post a plethora fashion accessories and “visual stimulation”. The examples on the runways certainly did not disappoint either.  We seem to be in a transition here back to black for the next season, which let’s face it in New York- black never really goes away….One could really see a sort of chic urban gender neutral and a bit punk inspiration coming from Lynn Ban for Fenty Puma. These accessories are modern and fashion based, yet wearable.  The layering possibilities are endless….. While I personally see accessorizing as finding yourself and style via these pieces daily, one can embrace their own look.  Fashion week brings themes, but also people who march to the beat of their own drum as well. I love looking at the colorful show.  The purpose here is to provide inspiration to the viewer, keep them updated on what is going on in the streets. Although, inherently I love to see someone who adds inspiration into an already understood personal way of dressing and accessorizing as well as the trailblazers  Perhaps, you’ll find something that speaks to you. Enjoy……

However, color is here as well, as is the case for Alexis Bittar’s 80s modern accessories for Jeremy Scott! While that is one of the styles shot on the street as well, the runway did also seemed to support the grey black white themes, there was plenty of color in the form of fur/faux fur scarves and accents.  Fendi brought everyone this last week in Europe. In fact Fendi’s looks included accessorized black, textured colorful coats as well as boots.  Boots will be higher, but for those who prefer extreme comfort, larger soled sneakers are still strong. In fact, a more laid back city chic look seems to be taking over as well.  Let’s see what secrets the streets are giving up:

Fade to Black- Here I’m just going to describe the trend as having four main types (chic edgy almost goth), (street smarts-they also enjoy grey), (black and white) and the (optimist-they need a touch of color with their black).

How to apply these styles you love- I have to admit as an accessories gal, I like black. I like to wear it with silver and gunmetal style accessories. I also like big pieces full of color. Win Win… So as for the fashion jewelry and bag game this coming season- you have options. A bag with texture, print/pattern or color can’t be wrong. Metal bags, smaller structured sizes, embellishment seems central to the bag game too. Or you can go with a simpler style bag with black or metal details and embrace the oversized colorful scarf or “fur/faux fur” accessory with it. There are some interesting silver options in chain mail bags and such out there for the upcoming season, the vintage answer to this would be a Whiting and Davis mesh bag 1920s-70s examples.

Jewelry to wear with black- chokers with silver accents, leather jewelry. Also, as we saw on the runways via Fashion Hong Kong; sunglasses with attitude and hair accessories are also an option to experiment with.

Quite frankly obsessed with this Koi fish necklace, proving the strength of a good gold and black combo.

I like the idea that outerwear is important this season as well- the patterns, colors and such almost make the coat a “fashion accessory”.  Great modern shaped earrings can compliment this “coat centric” look, add a chunky scarf or a belt.

What about the Men?

While our focus was primarily upon women’s fashion accessories, some men are embracing a more laid back approach: fashion styles actually overall seem to be more gender neutral so to speak, but the trends still apply as we see below with Jeremy Scott. Men we know you love your jeans and it’s all about denim, but you can’t go wrong mixing it up and adding some great eye wear as well. It’s never a bad idea in terms of men’s accessories, to go with color on the foot, while embracing all these darker hues for the upcoming f/w 2016-17 season. Not to forget, the classic black and white sneaker never dies. Don’t get me started on man bags…..
