Full of sparkle and drama, extra-long danglers are guaranteed head-turners, especially when worn with an updo or with hair tucked behind one ear.

Spotted on the Pre-Fall 2021 ready-to-wear collections are statement earrings that pack a punch. 

Among the big hits are Chanel’s sparkling tassels, Johanna Ortiz’s sea snail-inspired danglers and Eudon Choi’s vine-like showstoppers adorned with pearls.

Pre-Fall florals

Who said flowers were only for spring?

From Gucci to Oscar de la Renta, the Pre-Fall 2021 ready-to-wear collections are abloom with blossoms.

Just like floral or botanic-inspired fashion jewellery and accessories, floral prints – either on a white or dark base – are always a welcome addition to one’s wardrobe.


Some of SEASONS’ favourites include Chufy’s bohemian dresses in dark oranges, reds and greys that invoke images of prairie landscapes at dusk, La DoubleJ’s dresses, coordinates and headdresses in exciting prints, and Lela Rose’s elegant maxi dresses, sheaths and shirts, which can be styled in various ways.

To “winterised” these outfits, layer up by donning jackets, tights, long coats and taller boots.

This enables you to get some serious wear out of your pre-fall/fall wardrobe without compromising on style and comfort.

The chunky metal hardware trend has been popular for years and will likely endure regardless of the season.

 

Recently seen on designers’ Pre-Fall 2021 ready-to-wear look books are choker-style chain necklaces or metal accessories worn closer to the collar.

 

At Jil Sander, the accessory is worn over turtlenecks. It is also spotted resting right on the round necklines of Vivetta’s red and black tartans, adding a distinctive edge to the classic ensemble. 


Adding points of interest to the chain necklaces of Carolina Herrera and Natasha Zinko x Duoltd are bold metal pendants while N°21 embellished necklaces with pendant fringes.
