Now Trending: Designers Fall For Buckets & Boots



Though temps still soar here in North Texas, we at DFW Style Daily are looking forward. Today, our F/W 2014 Trending series continues with key fashion trends for the season to come. Take note, to stay ahead of the style curve.


Accenting a fall fashion season that’s shaping up to be the most exciting in years, designers are revisiting key wardrobe additions. Our must-have list for cool weather accessories includes the resurgence of the bucket bag and over-the-knee boots, plus gorgeous gloves galore.

For starters, forget the slouchy, unstructured drawstring carry-alls of the ‘80s. Today’s bucket bags are sharp and chic. Choose a style in neutral leather, or branch out into fabric-coated versions for a little pattern play. When it comes to boots and gloves, these late-year staples are also seen through a new luxe lens. Think rich tones and textures, most form-fitting to avoid winter wardrobe bulk. Read on for designer accessory inspiration, plus two buy-it-now finds:
