Early fall is a terrific time to transition into all the recent trends as well as incorporate existing ones. And accessories are the perfect opportunity. Color blocking is a look that took center stage earlier this year and while it remains on stage, it’s moving slightly off to a supporting position. Using the technique with jewel tones allows for a blending of styles. Shown here are Scala jewel and feather cloche in teal with Lord & Taylor stitched leather dress gloves in cherry. The wool cloche is a Flapper trademark and the jeweled brooch and feather detailing on the band draw from Victorian times. When coupled by the wrist-length gloves, reminiscent of Bridgehampton racing circa 1979, your look is sweet, saucy and timeless.
