NIIRVA’s Fall Must-Haves

Fall is (possibly) the best season for fashion and wardrobe re-inventing. After all, it’s a time to pull out your favorite cozy closet staples and buy a few new pieces to mix in.

Here at Niirva, we’re all about BOHO glamour and fun music festival vibes, but agree that it’s always fun to transition with the seasons.

This fall, we are loving faux and natural suede, soft leather, fringe, a pop of unexpected color (like darker yellows), and boho accessories. Anything from wide brim felt hats to ankle booties are on our radar.

In our Niirva shop, we have items you can add to your fall attire too. Here are a few fall goodies to try on and take home aka our Fall Must-Haves.

Fall Must-Haves

Checkered Tassel Scarf/Gray 

Basically, scarves are the cold season’s accessory that never phases out. You can’t go wrong with a warm classic gray scarf this season.

 

Surya Necklace

Rich and warm yellow hues are an unexpected way to add a bit of a fall glow to your OOTD.  This golden yellow Surya necklace will do the trick!

Floral Bracelet

You can’t completely leave florals behind once fall arrives. Just a simple flower design on a gold metal cuff will be just enough for the cooler months ahead.

Pom Poms Are Summer’s Newest Accessory

“Baby put your pom poms down for me. Come on shake it up 123. Baby put your poms poms down for me.” So goes the Jonas Brother’s song, ”Pom Poms.” However, we are not talking about the 123 go team kind of pom poms, but the recent fashion additions that have been popping up across the social media-sphere as well as on the hottest blogs like Carrie Bradshaw Lied. Recently, pom poms both large and small have been seen on straw bags, beach totes, sandals, cover-ups, and purse charms. While the size, style, and texture of the pom poms vary, they all have one thing in common–color!

Yep, these trendy lil’ and big poms are super colorful and look great when they are grouped together. The biggest social media phenomenon with the pom pom craze is the lace up gladiator sandals adorned with yes, pom poms. Recently, Etsy shops across the globe have been popping up creating these avant garde sandals from scratch.

One shop that caught our attention is called Dimitris Workshop located in Athens Greece. Their tie up gladiator style sandals are decorated (to the max!) with colorful poms, tassels, and beads . These bohemian beauties run about $183.00. No, they’re not from the House of Dior, but owning a pair of these babies is sure to rack up your likes on Instagram.

We particularly are loving how Kathleen from the blog, Carrie Bradshaw Lied created her pom pom look. Her BOHO lace-up sandals came from the Etsy shop, Sandals of Love while her ‘Ciao’ straw bag accompanied with pom pom charms came from the online retailer, ShopBop.

However, ShopBop and Etsy are not the only ones to get in on the pom trend. We here at Niirva have a few pom poms up our selves. Have you seen our embroidered Kutch purse?

This small clutch, was created by the artisans from the Kutch regions of India. It has a fun and colorful beaded tassel with adorning pom poms.

When sporting the pom poms trend, it is safe to say that you can keep your other accessories down to the minimum. However, it is summer after all and a few things to make your poms pop are:

This 2016 summertime trend is meant to be a bit wild, a bit fun, and a tad out of some comfort zones. Whether you are a kindred BOHO spirit (like we are) or are looking for a unique way to spruce up your summer attire–pom poms are the way to go! Add a few to your bag, your shoes, beach hat, and cover up. If you think you added too many, it is probably safe to add at least a few more.

The more pom poms the merrier. After all, have you ever heard anyone say, ”Hey, I like your pom?”  Nope, cue the Jo Bros,”Baby put your pom poms down for me.”

Embroidered Kutch Purse

Niirva-Blog-Embroidered-Kutch-Purse

Let’s talk about your purse preference. Here at Niirva we can literally use a different purse every day of the week – so many options. Lately, for me, I’ve been carrying around our Embroidered Tote Bag. I love that it’s big and can fit all my daily essentials. It has one small pocket which is great, but it’s not quite enough. For a while I tried to make the one pocket work for me, but it wasn’t happening. Then it dawned on me, I could use the Embroidered Kutch Purse as a catch all for all the small necessities I tote around with me every day. It’s working like a charm! If I don’t want to carry my large tote, I can toss the things I need into the purse and use it as a clutch. I tend to do this a lot when I’m going out to eat or running a quick errand. Enough about my purse preferences what are yours? Are you the crossbody type or large tote type? We want to know!

How to Style: the Floral Clutch Bag

How-to-style-niirva-blog

 

We love our Floral Clutch Bags. They are the perfect accessory for a day of exploring. It’s big enough to fit all your essentials, but small enough to make it easy to tote around all day. There are tons of ways you can add the clutch to your wardrobe, but our favorite is to add it to classic pieces you already own like a chambray shirt, black jeans, and your well-worn pair of booties. The pop of color in the clutch gives this outfit a touch of personality, while still keeping it very relaxed. It’s the perfect combination of classic meets boho.

Feeling more adventurous? Add on our Layered Necklace and our Cuff Bracelet for a little extra shine.
