Gone are the bright and sunny days of summer, and with them go the neon colors, the pastels and sharp whites of the season. The cool breeze of autumn brings with it richer hues, jewel tones, and thicker fabrics in woodsy and natural shades. Updating your fall wardrobe is much more than switching your summer dresses for wool sweaters and jeans, but also changing up your scarves, hats, purses, and jewelry into colors that go with the season. Here are a few outfit ideas that incorporate accessories in autumn colors.
For every day looks, it is a good idea to keep your outfit in neutral shades (browns, denim, beige, camel) that you can dress up with a brighter hued or jewel toned accessory. For example, pair some dark denim jeans with dark brown slouch boots and a beige sweater as a base. Add to your outfit an amethyst pashmina scarf and matching cashmere bucket hat. Carry a mustard handbag to add some dramatic contrast with the purple, or you can neutralize it with a deep brown leopard print tote. Throw on some bronze colored filigree hoops for some femininity and you are all set!
For a funkier option, pair some brown leather boots over black tights under a dark denim mini skirt. Tuck a black long sleeve v-neck shirt into your skirt, and wrap a maroon tube scarf around your shoulders like a cape or shrug. Wear a tweed newsboy cap to keep your head warm and carry a red orange clutch purse for some added spice. Or skip the hat and wear the scarf like a hood. If you want to go totally rogue, carry a crystal clutch purse. There is nothing wrong with being a little different!
For nighttime and special occasions, wear luxurious fabrics with heavier weight like velvet or brocade. Keep the palette simple so that you have more freedom with your accessories. Wear a velvet mini dress over black stockings and some glittering pumps. Add a dramatic statement necklace in gold or bronze, and carry a gold clutch purse. Earrings can be long and sweep your shoulders or they can be simple as a pair of emerald studs.
The air is getting chilly, so wardrobe essentials that keep you warm are necessary to survive the upcoming cold temperatures. However you choose to accessorize your fall wardrobe, be sure to stick with the season’s colors or you may stick out like a sore thumb.
