When it comes to accessories, more is more this season!
Saying goodbye to summer is made easier by the arrival of a fashionista’s favourite season: fall! This year, the fashion gods have given us so many goodies to play with. It can be difficult to keep pace with fast fashion, so to save your pennies and update your look this season, pile on the accessories that are crucial to your ensemble.
GOOD HAIR DAYS
The gossip girls are telling the truth: hairbands are back in and bigger than ever. Keep your hair perfectly in place with an oversized fabricheadband from Shop M Boutique. Wear a leopard print turban hairband to update an all-black everything look, or go chic with plain black and ivory.
Nix a bad hair day with this fall’s other hot hair accessory; the new bobby pin. Barrettes, clips, pins in metals adorned with crystals and pearls are being worn by all the insta-fashionistas. Wear just one or pile them on like you did in kindergarten. When it comes to the new hair accessories, more is more.
PILE ON THE BLING
When it comes to jewelry, take a page from Dynasty. Think costume jewelry, because dramatic earrings and necklaces are back, along with brooches and chokers. If you want to be even more extra, add chain necklaces and bib jewelry too. It’s all about volume!
Normally reserved for the holiday season, our favourite metal, gold, is major this fall, so pile on your acquisitions like
Cleopatra. Want to invest in one piece? A medallion necklace will be your staple. Wear it alone, or layer it on with several chains of gold.
Hoops are still in the mix this autumn, but super long earrings and tassels are here for the competition. Don’t want to buy anything new? Mix and match what you already have, harmonizing an outfit with identical separates is no longer a requisite.
BELOW THE BELT
It is quite evident that the south has had a major influence in fall fashion, so it’s no wonder that the cowboy boot is the new bootie. This leads me into my next pro-tip, the most enjoyable way to update your wardrobe is with a new pair of shoes. This fall, go country all the way with animal prints, snakeskins and faux hides.
Canadian girls need to stay warm while looking chic. Lucky for everyone, tights are modish and in all hues of the rainbow. Elevate your closet with a pair of mustard tights; they’re not only affordable, they’re comfortable.
The ladies will love this one. Fitted gloves are popular this year and every person can pull off this trend. Get an edgy pair from Canadian brand Uncuffed Leather or visit your favourite store for an assortment of options.
Even your bag needs to keep warm this fall. Update your wardrobe with the new it bag; the faux fur tote. All brands in all price ranges have a furry tote for you to select from. Match your bag with an oversized scarf; it is always on trend in Canada.
BE A CAPED CRUSADER
Accessories are essential this season, but covering up this autumn with your clothing is as important as ever. The cape is the new blazer; the bigger and bolder the sleeve, the better. Comfortable is in fashion, so take comfort this fall.
