It’s no secret… I love fall accessories. In my mind, a new pair of black suede booties, a plaid scarf, camel trench, fishnet stockings or even a new tote bag is a welcome addition to my accessories collection.
Yes, I did say collection– you might collect postcards, plates or even cars, I collect accessories! Every season, I search the web, stores, online media and fashion magazines for the hottest trends, styles, and colors and carefully choose new additions to my closet. My trick: I try to purchase things that I will be able to wear the next season; items that will look fresh and new the next year when I pair them with a new pair of pants or a different dress.
This season I am feeling colored bags, ankle boots, and scarves.
1. The Perfect Fall Bag:
Bags are the perfect way to bring a pop of color to your wardrobe. I usually find myself wearing more muted colors during the fall months (cold weather + living in the NY/NJ area will do that to you!). Something as simple as a great colored bag can bring your outfit from subdued to chic in an instant!
Forest green is a favorite fall handbag color of mine (it’s the color that I will definitely be carrying around most days this season, and a great way to incorporate green into my fall wardrobe: a must-have color this season!). But I am seeing shades of reds and purples pop up too!
What I am lusting after….
2. Ankle Boots:
Your ankle boots will quickly become your favorite pair of fall shoes. Pair them with rolled up jeans and a great chunky sweater for a relaxed weekend look, or with tights and a pencil skirt for the perfect stylish work look. Refinery29 did an article on ankle boots last month, and ever since then I have been on the hunt for some chunky ankle boots (I already have a black pair, but I am feeling the need for a camel colored pair!)
3. Plaid Scarves
Scarves are one of my favorite accessories in general, especially during the colder months. They are functional and such a great way to bring in some color or pattern to your outfit. Plaid is going to be big this season, and if you are unsure of how to incorporate it into your wardrobe, a plaid scarf is the perfect starter piece and a sure way to give your wardrobe the proper boost it needs!
