The arrival of cooler weather means layering up — but how do you add excitement to your leggings and puffer combo? Accessorize.
Claw clips, baseball caps and chunky jewelry are your autumnal accessory cure. These five basics are a must-buy for the season.
Baseball caps are making the transition from bad-hair-day-cover-ups to strategic styling pieces. Muted color palettes are dominating the hat game at the moment, encouraging monochromatic trends for the season. Pair this hat with any sweatshirt and, voila: you have an effortless, street-style look.
Claw Hair Clips
Claw hair clips are the season’s go-to hair accessory. Somber floral designs and tortoise shell are hot patterns right now, plus they embrace fall’s softer aesthetic.
One way to elevate your outfit this season is with a jeweled or patterned headband. Headbands help to complete the classic sweater and jeans combo. Plus, incorporating a fun band design like ruched gold or pearl studs transforms a business casual look to business royalty. Channel your inner Blair Waldorf and add this fall staple to your shopping cart.
Gold circular hoops have taken over the earring game lately, but it’s time to swap them out for the new earring shape of the season: rectangular hoops. These earrings add sophistication to any outfit and the gold tones compliment fall’s warm color schemes, especially orange and red.
Playful studs are also on the rise, with shapes ranging from mushrooms to hearts to smiley faces. Studs like these are one way to express yourself in the most simple way — you love peace signs or smiley faces? Buy the stud-version. The more earrings piled on this season, the better.
Just because summer is over doesn’t mean you have to retire your shades. Hailey Bieber and other celebrities are relying upon small lenses to ensure a posh look this fall. These mini glasses emulate early 2000’s vibes, especially partnered with a leather jacket and jeans.
