Trends: Bows and Berries

For the most part the clothing you see at Anthropologie is unique. Sometimes though Anthro presents its spin on a trend. These are the items that give you a bit of deja vu.

The Best of Bow-y
I like bows just as much as the next girl. This fall bows have been everywhere, especially on cardigans. In some cases I think the accent is successful and in some cases less so.

Anthropologie’s Tick Tock Cardigan
aka the Tried & True Cardigan

J.Crew’s bow necklace cardigan

Tracy Reese’s bow cardigan

Juicy Couture’s tie-front cardigan

Theory’s Anden Sweater

Very Berry Beading
Another big trend this fall is having accents in clothing pieces rather than wearing jewelry. This is usually accomplished with flourish around both around the neckline and the wrist. I have seen many pieces with marble-like fabric covered beading on pieces, which I’ve taken to calling berries.

Anthropologie’s Nodding Fronds Cardigan

Anthropologie’s Airbone Cardigan

Robert Rodriguez Beaded Cashmere Cardigan

J.Crew’s Berry-Trim Astrid Jacket

Do you like either of these trends? What other trends have you noticed Anthropologie showcasing?

    I do love the Berry Astrid! It has a chic Chanel vibe to it. Unfortunately it didn't fit me very well.
