5 Fall Accessory Essentials

Fall is such a fun time to play around with a wardrobe. It’s the perfect excuse to layer and bring out some of the more daring pieces thanks to the softening they receive from plush fabrics and forgiving combinations. And although five essential accessories for fall may not be enough to survive the autumn season for some of you more seasoned fashionistas, for others it may be exactly what you need in your closet to finish your outfits off right.

Layered Necklaces

5 Fall Accessory Essentials: Choker necklace

Layering necklaces, according to Vogue, is a hot trend for fall. Pair this Gold Aurora Double V Choker with a few delicate gold chains that hang daintily below this necklace for a look that’s totally on trend. You can wear necklaces like these with something really simple, like a fitted long sleeve turtleneck, or over top your favorite sweater. It could easily be dressed up or dressed down. Fortunately, Lyst has a host of jewelry perfect for executing this look on the jewelry page—check it out for some inspiration.

Beanie with Ears

Elle features a rabbit-eared beanie, but any animal will do, including this Pom Pom Beanie from Forever 21. This adorable little hat will keep the warmth in this autumn and your style meter pointed on high. With a healthy dose of fun childhood nostalgia, these animal-eared beanies are great way for adults to act like kids again, but with a grown-up twist. Try dialing down the girliness with boyfriend jeans and flannel tees for that laid-back look, or wear it with a pleated skirt, over the knee stockings, and a sweater vest for a sweet, school-girl vibe.

Combat Boots
