The harness has quickly become one of the most popular fall accessories. It might seem superfluous at first, but designers are loving the opportunity to play with proportion, and we are loving the flattering lines that they draw across our bodies. The thickness of the leather allows it to be worn even over coats and heavy dresses, making it an easy way to add a little edge to your winter wardrobe. It's also earning mass appeal due to being one of the few accessories that is completely unisex.
This Fashionisto is wearing his Zayna Bane harness over a dark grey sweater. The lack of contrast allows the harness to blend into his outfit, ultimately making it more wearable. As if one high fashion accessory isn't enough, he is also rocking creepers and an Alexander Wang backpack. Unlike it would in New York City, this all black ensemble stands out against the clean, friendly streets of Midtown Atlanta.
There are many different styles of harnesses, and you might be surprised to learn that they can be incorporated into a variety of looks. Feeling feminine and romantic? Try this petite pink harness. Going for a vintage vibe? Check out this brown suspender-inspired harness from ASOS. If you live in a warmer climate or are just looking for something a bit daintier, try a lightweight chain harness.
