>> The devil's in the details. For Fall, Asos is offering an array of accessories that point directly to the season's defining runway trends; a colorblocked fur scarf, for example, plays nice with an oxblood Chelsea boot punctuated by an orange elastic gusset. Other shoes venture into more luxurious territory — the decadence of velvet sandals and brocade booties is only surpassed by shoes in faux snakeskin.
But it's not all dark glamour — Asos has a definite sense of playfulness and whimsy that's seen plainly in its graphic-printed handbags and necklaces dusted with lots of sparkly crystals. Both of those themes combine in a brooch that depicts a miniscule turtle ascending a purple flower. What could be more fun than that?
