The simplest way to ease your wardrobe into a new season is with accessories: bags, gloves, shoes, belts, makeup and jewelry.
This year, fall’s accessories are more luxe than ever—tactile in velvet, embellished with grommets, saturated with color in new silhouettes pulled from the trends of the ’60s, ’70s, ’80s and ’90s.
Whether your style is modern and minimal, borrowed from the boys, romantic boho, goth or eclectic enough to create your own mash-up, here’s a look at our favorite fall accessories:
Saddle Bag: Works with ’70s boho or to offset a simple knit dress, like this one from Celine (pictured at left). Amp it up by choosing the color of the season: Red.
An arty shoe: Chunky heels, asymmetric cuts, and extra-modern materials will take your daily jeans and tee look to a new level:
Man Up: The last few seasons’ runways have been packed with menswear-inspired looks and there’s no quicker way to release your inner dude than these kicks …
Wine time: This deep, deep version of this season’s big color star (red) works especially well as an accent for neutrals from beige to black or with spicy colors like paprika and mustard.
All choked up: Chokers are back. Circular, close to the neck, in sophisticated clean styles or boho layers—they add dimension to any neckline.
