Swirling leaves, crisp breezes, and trees bespeckled with reddish-colored foliage are all synonymous with fall. Add hot chocolate, masala milk, or a delicious buttermilk infused drink like bajra raab to herald in this cozy season.
However, that’s not all there is to it. As every ardent fashionista knows, fall is a time to reflect on a wardrobe update. You may need some new jeans, Indo-Western dresses, chunky knits, layering sweaters, short kurtis, jackets, kurtas, tunics, pants, or coats. Perhaps you already have these, but feel that something is amiss. Whatever the case, your fall wardrobe would not be complete without the following latest accessory must-haves, guaranteed to add unbridled flair.
Up Your Boot Game
Boots are the ultimate accessory for colder months. According to Vogue, chunky boots are peaking in popularity. Select a chunky Wellington, chunky knee-high stilettos, an all-terrain chunky hiking boot, or a flat, chunky ankle boot. This range of boots complement just about anything — from your favorite midi or maxi skirt, to dresses, pants, and jeans.
Some timeless trends are the classic Chelsea boots, which pair perfectly with skinny jeans and dresses. Jeans and dresses also go with classic mid-calf or knee-high Western boots. You could also color match some knee-high riding boots with your best coat or jacket for a great finishing touch.
Accessorize like a style guru this fall with the latest in hats. Choose a textured, statement print beret to spice up your daywear. Classic berets are timeless and come in various fabrics. Pair these in authentic Parisian style with polo necks, jumpers, cardigans, or turtleneck sweaters. They also add panache when matched with coats and boots. Another staple headgear must-have is the classic fedora. This adds a classy, relaxed feel to your fall wardrobe.
Asymmetric hats are also a popular pairing choice for trench coats and knit midi dresses. Beanies are an absolute essential, with its wide array of fabrics and hues since it adds warmth and personality to any outfit. Choose a slouchy beanie to punctuate a laid-back weekend look or a cashmere beanie for an elegant feel. Or shield your head from chilly breezes, and add some whimsical flair to your outfits with a trendy bucket hat.
Some Fall Bling
Fall wardrobe essentials are guaranteed to look more fabulous with a touch of bling. Chunky, tubular necklaces are a fall accessory must-have. Dress up in a pair of jeans with a jacket to make a bold, sophisticated fashion statement.
This quest for boldness has transcended to earring trends too. Gone are the days when dainty earrings with tiny, set stones were all the craze. Now, humongous earrings with equally huge costume gemstones, set in circular and pear forms, are indispensible. Match these statement stone-pieces with your embellished short kurtis or tops for an eye-catching look. You could also complement your tops and kurtis with some matching chunky bangles, hoop earrings, or a modern Haddy or bubble ring.
Nothing melds versatility, functionality, and flair more than the timeless scarf. Whether you’re opting for an oversized one that can double up as a shawl for extra warmth, or a plaid one for a touch of class, there is something for everyone here.
Color-blocked scarves are a must-have for fall. It’s bold and can complement several colors in your outfit. You can also choose a fringed color-blocked variation. Or opt for a neutral shaded fringe scarf, as neutral shades complement most other colors. Striped knitted scarves provide warmth. You can also match these with your basic layering sweaters. Or select an oversized ombre scarf, which can also serve as a tiny throw; ideal for exceptionally chilly days.
Bags provide the ideal finishing touch to your fall outfits. Choose tote bags with structured handles to make a fall statement. Pair this with matching gloves and shoes for a ladylike look. You could also match a leather crossbody bag with your favorite pair of leather boots, knits, and jacket.
Shopper bags are perfect for that daytime outing or as a carry-on when running errands. These come in a variety of designs, fabrics, and colors, making it the ideal mix and match accessory. You could also select a bowling bag with an attached neck scarf to match the rest of your outfit. Messenger bags are also functional and creates aesthetic appeal.
Wearing these accessories this fall should make you one notable trendsetter!
