Pippy&Lily Fall 2015 Fashion Forecast August 10 2015
Just returning from the New York Accessories and Fashion Trade show has made me so excited for Fall to arrive! Yes,on this hot summer day….
I always like to purchase accessories and clothing that are classic yet have a slight trend attached to them. You always feel polished with a classic, yet adding a trendy embellishment or one single trendy piece will make you look stylish in the moment.
So, here’s what I found.
Handcrafted in the USA! Sentimental and inspirational jewelry handcrafted with 14kt gold, brass and/ or stones. Charms, Charms, Charms…especially initials, hearts, stars, feathers, lips, Buddha, or foliage.
Crystal stone earrings are hot…semi-precious, glass or crystal.
Personalized Jewelry: Single Initial charms can be worn alone or with other initials or symbols. 14kt gold dipped over sterling silver, sterling silver, or ones with CZ stones. Add a chain or chord to create your own style necklace. They can be as individual as you are. I love them because they are affordable and make a great gift.
Handbags: One MUST and I repeat MUST have a crossbody bag this season. Fringe is everywhere….However; you will need a bag that is fashionable yet functional. I found a crossbody/wristlet handbag that has a Smartphone charger inside. It will charge your phone up to 2xs before a need to charge the battery. Recharge the battery using a USB port and you’re done. These leather bags come in all colors. There’s even a faux leopard, cork and faux pony-hair bag. I especially LOVE the ones with fringe!! Totes are still selling well. I love the ones that have a second bag inside that you can use as a crossbody bag or an organizer.
Cold Weather Wear….Thick cable knit turtleneck ponchos, hoodie ponchos, hounds-tooth wool scarves, tartan plaids, two toned scarves and fingerless Smartphone gloves with faux fur.
Plaid capes in Oak Buff (Pantone color for Fall 2015).
Apparel: Another "Must Have" is a sweater with fringe. Sweaters are comfortable, lightweight, slouchy and feel like a soft blanket against your skin. Sweaters with a touch of leather piping are classic and simple. Jeggings are back as well as high waisted jeans. They’re great looking and we’ll have them in Stormy Weather (Pantone) color grey and well as Indigo. New to the boutique are black stretch leggings with ankle zippers as well as jeans with faux leather sides. See them at the Pippy&Lily boutique.
New to our collection will be lace bikini lingerie, more apparel and new jewelry brands.
Pantone Colors Fall 2015: Stormy Weather, Biscay Bay, Oak Buff, Marsala, and Desert Sage are my favorites since they are classic and can be worn with many other colors.
Happy Fall Shopping!
