Today we continue to talk about Fall 2011 trends to get you ready for the Fall merchandise that will be hitting stores sooner than we might like. We wanted to point out another must-have accessory in addition to the Obi belt -The Envelope Clutch.
Oftentimes what fashion editors and show attendees wear at fashion weeks are good indicators of trends to come. And needless to say the envelope clutch is starting to pop out at the recent Fall couture show, check out these photos by Tommy Ton in Paris.
While the Obi belt complements the Asian trend, the envelope is key to nail another one of Fall’s biggest trends, Refined Opulence. As a reminder, this trend is about elegance done so in a clean, tasteful, and a no-fuss manner. Don’t let the name confuse you because it is not necessarily an expensive look to achieve. The key is keeping the silhouettes clean and streamlined with a touch of opulence.
The envelope is sleek, simple and elegant. This boxy accessory can easily become a wardrobe staple for the working girl this Fall as designers offer options in different size, proportion, and material. The angular geometric shape adds sharpness to any outfit instantly refining any look no matter the occasion- day or night.
So go ahead and be the lady who knows luxury but doesn’t flaunt it – a simple button down, sleek tuxedo pants and a pair of patent pumps worn with an envelope clutch will be the vision of a lady standing out among a sea of bland body-con dresses.
