Picking the right clothing is just half the battle! To look fabulously on-trend this fall, you need to find the right accessories. Check out our top six picks for accessories that will finish your fall look.
Cross jewelry was big in the ’90s, but it’s making a comeback this season! Rosary-inspired necklaces, oversized rings and simple, understated bracelets are all perfect options. To stay on-trend, the key is to layer, layer, layer! Look for necklaces with longer chains and bracelets that will stack well with other jewelry. We love the Debi Lynn Designs Cre’ateaur Necklace (Debi Lynn Designs, $76) and the Shannon Koszyk Jerusalem Cross Necklace (Shannon Koszyk, $256) for their easy versatility.
Shades of gold may have reigned supreme in recent seasons, but silver is returning to the top spot in fashion. Look for oversized silver accessories, like wide cuffs, collar necklaces and handbags with large silver buckles or chains. You can even pick up pieces that combine silver with natural stone for an ultra-trendy look. We love the Tasha Spike Statement Necklace (Nordstrom, $49) and the Natasha Couture Hinged Cuff (Nordstrom, $58) for their bold, but simple style.
The width of your belt is changing again! While wide belts were popular several seasons ago, falling out of favor to skinnier styles, the wider belt is coming back again… in the form of a corset belt! Meg Gallagher, a bicoastal stylist and fashion blogger says, “Waist cinching is a must! Finish off a knit dress with a corset sash.” Gallagher’s favorite style? The Diane von Furstenberg Multi-Wrap Corset-Inspired Leather Belt (Saks Fifth Avenue, $365).
The weather starts turning chilly as summer fades into fall, so one of the best accessories this season is a lightweight wrap. Rather than throwing on a structured jacket or cardigan, look for long, loose and flowing pieces in light, versatile colors. We love the Goddis Linsey knit wrap in silver sage (Goddis, $216). You can wear it on the weekend or throw it on as you leave the office. It even has a hoodie to protect your ears from the wind! Plus, the brand is a favorite of celebs like Jennifer Lopez, Miley Cyrus and Halle Berry, so you can feel good knowing you’re dressing like the stars.
Brightly colored hats
Now that colder weather has arrived, you may have to put your straw hats away, but that doesn’t mean hats have gone out of style. Mindy and Paula Shapiro of The StyleDuo say that wearing vintage hats is definitely the way to be on trend for fall. While the StyleDuo twins suggest Marc Jacobs pillbox hats, we love floppy wool hats in bold colors like burgundy, forest green and rust. Look for the new styles by David and Young to complement your fall wardrobe (David and Young, $40).
Infinity scarves came into fashion last year, but there’s no reason to replace them this season. Unlike traditional scarves, infinity scarves are a single circle of fabric that never ends. The infinity scarf is a perfect scarf for low-maintenance mornings because you don’t have to think twice about how to style or arrange it around your neck. Look for loose-knit fabrics in popular patterns to add a punch of pizzazz to a neutral outfit. We love the multi-colored chevron scarves by David and Young (David and Young, $28).
Don’t forget your boots! Wedges and riding boots are especially popular this fall.
