How to accessorize your wardrobe
(VIA-GREENVILLE ON LINE)-Goodbye coverup and hello sweater.
The time has come to shift from summer sun to autumn fun, and while we are the first to welcome the cooler temps and change of season, the idea of revamping last year’s purchases into this year’s style had us a little overwhelmed.
Fortunately, there is no shortage of advice when it comes to fashion around here. When we went asking, we got the scoop on an instant update in one word: accessories. The idea is to find pieces that add a pop of color, texture or practicality to outfits you love (and already own). The options are limitless, and with our tips in hand it’s only a matter of time before your wardrobe is too.
Shopping months in advance for fall fashions means retailers can give us plenty of advice on what will be showing up everywhere in the next couple of months so we can get the jump on everyone else. Find pieces that add a pop of color, texture or personality to outfits you love. The options are limitless — sometimes even overwhelming. We’ve taken the hands of trusted experts at Copper Penny, Fabrik and Style Envy to help us narrow down the choices and ease us into a jam-packed fall sporting a great look.
Glamorous quartz-covered stones are the hottest trend in jewels and easily add an inexpensive pop of color. Try them in drop earrings, a oversized ring, or a chain necklace.
Handbags are essential for every season, and many stores offer two-in-one totes. A roomy satchel comes complete with a sassy clutch that transitions from office to piano bar without skipping a beat.
The perfect warm up to fall is with a new scarf. Scarves are available in just about any fabric or print you can think of: animal prints, faux fur, skulls, plaids and cashmere. Why not look great when you catch that long-awaited chill in the air?
Loafers, oxfords, or half slippers are are continuing to turn heads, and flats are a big part of the fashion scene for the fall. Pair them with your favorite jeans for that rare combination of stylish and comfortable at the same time.
Be it a slicker, a trench, or faux fur, trendsetters will be seen in colorful coats reflecting deep colors thought of in the late stages of fall.
Wear them with jeans, skinny pants, skirts or even shorts: A little leopard goes a long way. Animal-print booties are perfect to highlight a wild side.
You know what they say: Go big or go home. Bold necklaces are best for this season. Take your simple top or dress and make it pop with the right necklace.
And why stop there? Stacked bracelets make a big statement, so pile on your favorites — perhaps leather stacked with beads atop of silver along with your favorite cuff. This season, they all work together to pull off a great look.
Don’t have time for a whole new wardrobe? Not to worry. We all know accessories are really a girl’s best friend.
