Fall 2011 Trends: Python, Gold, Metallics, & Fur

There are so many great fall trends this year that will carry us well through the holiday season and into the winter.  Roopal Patel, until yesterday the Senior Market Accessories Director at Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman, speaks of incorporating “luxurious bohemian” flare into our fall/holiday outfits through the use of flowy silk skirts and statement necklaces.  Further, she wants to see bold gold, black and gold combo, metallics, python, leather, and a structured handbag. Don’t forget the fur collar or furry jacket!

Below is my take on “luxurious bohemian” flare, using pieces like my metallic gold python boots, flowy silk black beaded dress, statement bead necklace, lightweight cropped fur jacket, and structured metallic gold handbag to put the look together.  Are you feeling this style?  Leave your comments below or tweet me @gretchhackmann with your answers!

    You look stunning! That dress is fantastic and fur adds that glamour to a day outfit without looking like you’re over the top!! I adore HOH and having two different earrings is my fav thing to do. Bravo on this look. I’m not the biggest fan of the boots. Love gold and love boots but probably just not for moi. You pull it off though!

      Thank you!! I love adding lightweight fur jackets to my outfits; it spruces up the look, but also seems to complete it too! The python metallic gold boots are definitely a controversial item.  They’re not as bad in person…actually, I’m wrong, they’re worse! Either hate’em or love’em. Thx for your comments :)
