Badgley Mischka, Milly and Elie Tahari

Accessories are taking over Fashion Week.  One of the major trends, gloves, are not only a practical accessory for keeping warm but also an easy way to add a pop of color to your otherwise dark winter outfits.

Gloves come in a variety of lengths. Those that come up to the wrist or over the elbow are the most attention-grabbing. However, mid-forearm length seems to be more practical for comfort and different sleeve lengths. Although some collections carry an overall matching theme, many gloves in bright, neon colors have been shown, like on the runways of Badgley Mischka and Milly.

Michael Kors, Elie Tahari and Proenza Schouler

The skinny belt made its way onto the catwalk most recently in Fall 2009. Because it can create both a subtle effect and irresistible attraction, designers are not reluctant to bring back the trend this year. Contrary to the popping color of gloves, the skinny belts are muted and under the radar, waiting to be picked out by a keen eye. At Michael Kors, whose collection is dominated by monochromes, the belt takes on the finest form possible around waistlines. Elie Tahari passs matching belts through pant loops and over lush coats and vests. In the Proenza Schouler collection, the accessory practically disappears amidst dark complex prints.

Would you consider some more colorful gloves and understated skinny belts for your wardrobe this  fall?
