Attention fashionistas: It’s time to get your wardrobe ready for fall. As any fashion-savvy girl knows, a change in the season means that it’s time to look ahead to the latest and greatest in the fashion world. If you don’t have the time or resources to update your whole closet, don’t despair. Adding a few new accessories can give your outfits new life for autumn without breaking the bank.
With crunchy leaves, cool weather and everything pumpkin just around the corner, these five accessories are great options for updating your wardrobe for fall on a budget.
Pearls aren’t just for your grandma. According to Vogue, they were spotted all over models in fashion shows in recent months, being displayed in traditional jewelry and even pasted directly on the skin. You can go classic with this trend, but don’t feel that you need to limit yourself to a string around your neck. Look for ways to incorporate pearls into your favorite hair style with barrettes or headbands, or find a pair of chunky, glam earrings that feature pearl accents. If you’re worried about your budget, a faux version will do the trick just as well as the real thing.
2. Velvet shoes
There is no better time for velvet than the fall. If you’re a fan of this soft, luxurious material, try it on your feet this season. Vogue reported that velvet shoes are expected to be a hot accessory for autumn 2015, a part of a larger return to Victorian fashion. Velvet heels or slippers are the perfect accessory for a classy night out, but you have lot of options with this trend. If you’re looking for something more edgy, Vogue reported that both Dries Van Noten and Givenchy used velvet on ankle boots at recent shows.
3. Skinny scarf
Everyone loves a good scarf in the fall, but if you’re looking for something trendy, go skinny rather than bulky. A residual effect of the boho trend, which is still going strong according to Elle magazine, the skinny scarf just might end up being the must-have accessory of the season. A piece that can easily be dressed up or down, Elle recommended wearing yours with anything from a formal gown to a casual sweater.
4. Blocked heels
Tired of wobbling around on stilettos? You’re in luck. The cooler weather is expected to bring with it a shift toward, shorter, blocked heels. According to the Huffington Post, the trend was spotted at Miu Miu, Chanel, Stella McCartney and Comme des Garcons. The slight heel will still give your legs a little extra definition, but the shorter height and blocked base will make walking around much easier. You can’t beat when a trend is both fashionable and practical!
That’s the same principle that makes a Baby-G digital or analog watch so appealing, offering options that will add a chic touch to your outfit while serving the practical purpose of helping you arrive on time to all of your social obligations.
5. Statement bags
Your bag shouldn’t just be for carrying your wallet and phone. It should make a statement about who you are. This fall, experts are recommending that fashionistas finish off their favorite outfits with bold bags. That can mean choosing a purse with bright color-blocking, a bold slogan or even a unique shape. Harper’s Bazaar highlighted different bags that were shaped like bears, covered in bling and inspired by traffic signs. Anything goes with this bold, original purse trend.
