Soft accessories play a vital role in this season as well - from striped football scarves to the collegiate ties. Knitted beanies are prominent here too , and for next winter they arrive either shrunken or elongated, in a play on proportion.
A major trend that emerged is chains and trinket pendants with strong commercial viability.
Circular and squared eye wear will be big for 2012. While the season is perhaps tight on new shape directions, two strong material/colour directions emerge - classic tortoiseshell and an emphasis on creamy neutrals.
