Accessorizing the Military Trend this Fall/Winter

Fall has arrived! As we switch gears from our summer wardrobe to fall, we’re faced with some new fall/winter trends. The military look is making its mark once again, with the emphasis on strong structured blazers and trousers. A beautiful blouse in olive, with a black leather collar, was seen in Jason Wu’s collection, and Belstaff featured a stunning pea coat adorned with metal detailed buttons. This structured look was seen in various runway shows for fall/winter 2012, and the same question always arises, “How does one accessorize these looks?”

Accessorizing pieces that have strong lines, such as blazers or pea coats, takes just as strong of an accessory to make the look flow. Harlequin&Lionhead has many complimentary pendants, necklaces, and rings that fit well into this seasons most trendy garments.

One of which is the Large Heart pendant from the Whirls Collection. This is a statement pieces that will add that final touch to your winter wardrobe. Alexander McQueen’s Horn of Plenty inspired the pendant, molded out of clay, and then cast in brass. The pendant presents two feathered wings forming the shape of a heart; the back is hollowed out, reveling a lovely heart chamber inside.

Keep in mind a little goes a long way. Make sure not want to over accessories this fall/winter. Try to find a strong piece to work into your look, and let it be the key addition. With the military look you want to keep your accessories to a minimum, but bold and upfront!
