In many ways, the best season for fashion accessories is fall, and that’s due to the ever-changing weather that gives us more options when it comes to putting together our ensemble.
Those of you who follow the trends set by fashion gurus, leading stores, and brands religiously will no doubt be raring to go when it comes to making sure you have the right accessories for the season.
Others may be less au fait with what’s in and what’s not, and with both parties in mind, we’d like to offer our assistance when it comes to picking the right items to best suit your wardrobe.
Accessories are often the vital ingredient, the additional detailing, that can really make your choice of clothes pitch-perfect. So without any further ado, here are seven great accessories you need to have in your armory this fall.
You really can’t go wrong with custom-made jewelry items. They are not only a great luxurious addition to pair with your outfit, but they are also a statement piece, a conversation starter, and the icing on the cake for your overall choice of outfit.
You can see some elegant examples of the types of name and initial necklaces that you can get here, and the best thing about this fall accessory is that it goes with pretty much any occasion, from workwear to an evening out.
Chunky Oversized Sunglasses
These are very much part of the ongoing ‘oversized’ trend that has gripped us all in 2021 and is perhaps the best example of this craze. Look to get yourself a pair that is rectangular in shape, with strong angles, and don’t worry about spending massive sums on designer labels as this look works well with store-bought glasses also. Great to have as you enjoy the last of the sun for this year.
The Hobo/Bohemian Bag Is Back In
Again this is a trend we can get behind. The rough and ready look, which is super resourceful as these bags offer a lot of room for the never-ending list of belongings you need to see out the day/night, is perfect for that relaxed ‘lived-in’ style. It’s a relaxed trend that works well for the move from summer to winter.
Satin Head Scarf
This look brings to mind that of an Audrey Hepburn-esque feel that has just the right combination of retro and up-to-date appeal. Silk scarves were big over the summer, and a nice satin headscarf works well for the change in temperature. It is also very useful as you can wear it the traditional way or tied to your bag or as a scarf. Super versatile.
This western look is one for the braver fashionistas among us. Look to get a tanned color wide-brimmed fedora if you are really going to go for it. Great for a casual brunch with the ladies and also a great option if you just want to keep your unruly hair in check. Expect to see a lot of these on the high street this fall.
Quilted Shoulder Bags
The quilted look was big earlier this year, especially when adapted to footwear, and this fall, it’s all about quilted shoulder bags. Something about this design reeks of opulence, and it’s a playful look that can be further accentuated if you elect to go with bright colors that can’t help but grab the attention of passersby. You can look for additional bling by finding a quilted bag with a chunky chain.
If you are a fan of jewelry, then we are no longer in the age of minimalism. It would be best if you tried to pair three or more necklaces together to give that layered look that really catches the eye.
Make sure to select necklaces that work together in sequence and pair this with evening wear that has a plunging neckline to really show off the goods. Play around with this look and see how far you can take it.
Platform Boots, or Loafers
The platform look is going to be popular this fall, and that’s great for those of us who have always wished they were a few inches taller. When it comes to evening wear, you can muster up the courage to go with knee-high platform boots, and during the day, nice leather platform loafers will do the trick. You can add more style points to the look by finding a pair that has nice detailing that adds more of a kick to this footwear trend.
