As the temperatures start to drop and the days get shorter, I am constantly reminded that fall is officially here! Well, being a Florida native, I have to live vicariously through all of those in a cooler climate because our fall weather still consists of 80-degree temps. So as most of you get ready to pull the boots, hats and leather jackets out of the closet for some much needed exposure, I am still attempting to dodge the sun and avoid tan lines.
Nonetheless, my location doesn’t stop me from shopping the must-have accessories of the season and finding ways to incorporate them into my outfits. Between chic outerwear and made-for-the-runway footwear, I am practically gagging over the latest fall fashion. Need help choosing the items that will help you survive fall? Check below for the accessories that are on my covet list:
1. Cashmere Scarf
When I was in undergrad up North, I was so impressed with how I could toss on a scarf and instantly transform a summer piece into a more weather appropriate look. Get into one of my favorites here.
2. Knee-High Socks
Knee-high socks have become the ultimate wardrobe staple for the fashion ‘it’ girl. Channeling my inner Cher Horowitz, I love the 90s makeover that these provide. Shop a classic black and white pair at Target here.
3. Leather Gloves
Whenever I think of leather accessories, Pam Grier comes to mind, rocking edgy leather from head to toe, being unapologetically badass and not giving a damn. Because we can all stand to have a little more Pam Grier inspiration in our lives, these River Island leather gloves with a pom pom accent are the perfect choice for fall.
A beanie hat always comes in handy during those cold fall mornings. I love how you can make a bold statement and show off your personality, like with the Feline beanie below. Shop the piece here.
5. Cute Carryall
Because fall weather is totally unpredictable, you’re going to need a large handbag to carry all the essentials to help you get through the day. You know the ones – Chapstick, an iPhone charger, mini umbrella and the list goes on. This multi-tone handbag is on trend and will definitely get the job done this season. Shop here.
What are your go-to accessories for fall? Any I missed? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
