When fall 2021 comes around, you will have plenty of options for what to wear, from pastel princess dresses to proper pleated skirt suits and everything in between. The accessories that will finish your look will be similarly diverse, too. Maybe your Fair Isle sweater will be topped off with ski goggles and a colorful hair kerchief? A sparkling mini dress could be paired with leather knee-boots à la Jane Birkin or rave-ready giant flatform shoes. Under your arm could be a small hobo bag or a giant carryall tote. The unifying item remain a mask—only now with a flowing train courtesy of Marine Serre and Rick Owens. The point being that the best shoes, bags, sunglasses, and other accessories of fall 2021 will really work for you and fit into your life—however you want to live it.
The Snood Abides
A knit balaclava or snood is proving to be a most essential accessory, perfect for keeping warm and hiding bad hair days. Miu Miu and Ambush’s versions ride high to cover a mask, while Balmain and Moschino offer more polished wraps fit for zooming in a convertible with the top down.
