I’m a southern girl who loves summer, so I’m not one who goes ga-ga over cooler weather and pumpkin spice. In fact, the ONLY thing I like about fall is the fashion. I can’t wait to break out the leather, chunky sweaters, and all of the fun, fall accessories! I absolutely love adding chic gloves, scarves, boots/booties, and hats to jazz up fall outfits! If you’re looking to add or update a few accessories for the new season, keep reading for a few of my faves.

• Army Green. Moss. Fern. Olive. •
Whatever you wanna call it. I’m completely obsessed with this color for fall. I can’t get enough of this neutral that plays well with just about every color, including my beloved leopard print and looks fantastic on every skin tone!
These chic toppers add a little spunk to everything from leather to basic sweaters. Available in a variety of colors, the basic black, tan, and grey aren’t our only options anymore. Added bonus: Fedoras make bad hair days and rainy days just as fabulous as any other day!
• Fabulous Flats •
I love a good, comfortable heel in any form – boot, pump, bootie (my faves are of the peep toe variety). At times, however, the occasion will call for flats. And when I must, I especially love flats with little embellishments or unique features like adorable little spikes (below). Lately, everyone from Gucci to Nine West have added chic flats to their fall/winter collections. For work or play, flats will fit the bill this fall.
• Blanket Scarves •
Scarves are great, but blanket scarves, whew! I don’t think I’ll ever NOT own one. I love how they pull double duty by providing warmth and style when you don’t want to wear a coat. They. Are. HUGE. The trick is configuring the scarf so that it’s not annoying and completely takes over your neck. If you already own one, then you know what I mean.

• Peep Toe Booties •
Peep Toe Booties are super versatile! Pair them with jeans, skinny pants, skirts, dresses…you name it! They can be dressed up or dressed down, depending on the heel and style. Either way, these are perfect for fall before the frost hits. I might even wear mine during the winter if it’s not too cold.

According to Q, adding (or updating) these items will keep your fall style game on point from head to toe. Start at the top with a chic fedora, a blanket scarf with a great print, and peep toe booties or flats to finish. And don’t forget to pick up a piece or two in gorgeous army green!
Cheers to fall accessories that step up your style game!
