11 Must-have Fall Fashion Accessories to Amp Up Your Style

Must-have fall fashion accessories
Do you have what we like to call attention-seeking-through-accessories behavior? If yes, then firstly, we applaud you with utmost sincerity for having the courage to give accessories their time in the limelight. And secondly, we thank you by giving you a list of those accessories that your fall wardrobe would be incomplete without.
Celebrate the Season
For a truly fall-worthy look, own one statement accessory piece that is symbolic of the season you are celebrating; an obvious orange leaf or a quirky pumpkin.
It's that time of the year again. The weather is a little cooler, there's a slight nip in the air. Bold, beautiful, rich colors, like orange, amber, red, and yellow, take over the trees, and as you walk along pathways strewn with leaves, the sound of them getting crushed is magnified in your ears. You can smell the pumpkin pie, and feel the enthusiasm that the festive season promises to bring with it. Fall can make even the most cynical of humans slightly romantic. It is a mystery that has never been solved.

But with all those nostalgia-worthy moments that fall brings, also comes the time for another wardrobe overhaul. And the realization that it's time to relegate the gorgeous summer dresses and open-toed shoes to the back of your cupboards. It's the season to go all out with the oh-so-trendy fall staples, like oversized jackets, sweatshirts, tea-length skirts, plaid shirts, etc. But the true standout winner of the What Can I Not Do Without this Fall war is the accessories brigade. And we have made it our personal agenda to keep you right on track with the most essential must-have accessories you need to own this fall.
Accessories We Love this Fall
Fall 2013 is all about the bold and the beautiful. The accessories are no more just delicate and beautiful. There's an element of playfulness to them. There's a sense of quirk and a lot of character. It's all about making a statement with any accessory that you choose to wear. Here are what we think your cupboard may feel a little sad without this fall.
Bags
Bags for fall fashion
Our two favorite styles this fall are also designs that have been carried forward from summer. Tote bags and sling bags continue to rule the roost. Of course, we suggest envelope sling bags as a sleeker, more stylish option. Look for bright colors. The tote is, and always will remain, a fashionista favorite as long as it manages to tread the fine line between utility and aesthetics.
Boots
Boots for fall fashion
Our all-time favorite fall accessory has gone macho this year. Studs, buckles, lace-ups are all styles that are flying off the shelf and how. From rugged military styles to wedge-heeled boots, to booties with a suede finish, take your pick from an endless variety of boots this season.
Clutches
Clutches for fall fashion
For occasions when you don't need a huge bag to dump everything into, a clutch is the perfect accessory. From compact box clutches to fashion-forward, stationery-inspired envelope clutches, your options are endless. All you need to ensure is that the (obviously-drop-dead-stylish) bag is roomy enough to carry your essentials, and you should be good to go.
Flats
Flats for fall fashion
While we love our heels, and can never be parted from them, a pair of stylish flats can be a befitting gift to our feet on days when they crave comfort. Our favorite picks this season are ballerinas with a twist, and boyfriend shoes in vivid colors. Try two-toned oxfords, animal-print ballet flats, or even brightly-colored loafers to style up your tootsies.
Infinity Scarves
Infinity scarves for fall fashion
The one accessory that can take any outfit from blah to whoa! is a scarf, and the new range of infinity scarves that have taken the fashion world by storm are just what we prescribe for the perfect ensemble. For a chic, slightly polished look, an infinity or circle scarf, which can be worn without fancy knotting methods, can be the cherry on the icing.

Plaid
Plaid for fall fashion
'Tis the season to be mad about plaid. From the classic red, black, and white scheme to perkier, more fun combinations like orange, gray, and white, the craze for this pattern is insane. Look past the usual plaid shirts, and opt for accessories in this print; include bow ties, hats, bags, scarves, etc. It is a trend that is here to stay, and you can test the waters with some trendy, whimsical accessories.
Sneakers
Sneakers for fall fashion
Comfortable and go-to footwear when you need to give your feet some much-needed rest, sneakers are versatile and can be teamed with an endless array of outfits. Especially the kind of sneakers that are in fashion right now; from blingy, studded shoes to metallic sneakers, to printed high-tops, take your pick and sashay away.
Statement Bracelets
Statement bracelets for fall fashion
From charm bracelets to quirky, metallic designs, to broad and big cuffs, anything goes where arm candy (well, it is candy for the arm) is concerned this autumn. Think big, thing unique, think different, think color, and you are sure to be on the mark. If you're confident about the look, you can also choose to mix patterns for a slightly more eclectic look.
Statement Necklace
Statement necklace for fall fashion
This is one accessory that has traversed seasons to remain a favorite with fashionistas all over. While the trends in colors and patterns from the earlier months continue, it may be a good idea to go bolder and edgier. Think jewel tones and metallic hues. Emerald green, ruby red, sapphire blue, amber orange, etc., are all perfect colors to unleash the fall warrior in you.
Statement Ring
Statement ring for fall fashion
We can pick a statement necklace when we are blindfolded, we can wear a bold bracelet in a microsecond but when it comes to rings, we tend to stick to conventionally classic delicate numbers. This fall, change all that, and let your fingers do the talking with statement-making cocktail rings in edgy designs and bright colors.
Pendant
Pendants for fall fashion
For those of you who aren't comfortable with the idea of a big, chunky necklace, a tiny, offbeat pendant can be your angel in disguise. From animal-shaped pendants, to pretty bows and unusual heart-shaped pieces, the sky is the limit. Either wear it as a single eye-catching piece, or pair it with other pendants for an even more unique look.
