Fall Accessories Guide
Wednesday, October 7, 2009
This season, more actually is more. Ditch understated accents that just compliment your clothes. Fall’s accessories are no longer co-stars, they MAKE the outfit. The accessories of choice? The thigh-skimming boot, the costume jewelry necklace, the jeweled brooch, the long glove, the oversized day clutch, the cool hat, the leopard print bootie and lots of layered chain necklaces.
Instead of buying the whole accessories section at Nordstrom, invest in these three pieces: over-the-knee boots, leopard print booties and statement necklaces. Why? Because they’ll give your old Fall basics an instant update. An over-the-knee boot makes a pair of jeans look brand new in the same way a statement necklace adds pizzazz to a boring sweater. See? Totally, worth the investment.
PIECE TO BUY: Statement necklaces aren’t just for the prom, gala or red carpet anymore. Glamorous bib necklaces and layered chain necklaces are dressing up sweaters, tees and tanks this season! Throw one on and bring new life to your old Fall staples.
PIECE TO BUY: Over-the-knee boots are the style of choice this season! Note: to tone down the sex appeal (read: in order to not look like a streetwalker), wear them with a pair of fitted pants or leggings. If you want to rock a skirt or minidress, throw on tights in the same color as the boots (monochromatic color is huge this season!) to keep the sexiness at bay.
