Fall is upon us. Just last Monday, the start of fall was officially announced. This does not mean that the picnics have ended or that the weather is not still warm, but just that the leaves are beginning to turn and cold snaps are becoming more frequent. With the change in the weather comes the change in fashion. The deeper colors of autumn are now being seen in the stores, as are the thicker jackets and lovely sweaters.
Not only should your clothing change, but your accessories will need to change. The accessories are what help to make the outfit and accessories should be used to keep with the autumn season rather than using the same pieces of jewelry, shoes and purses. To use the same items will only confuse the outfit and give you an unkempt appearance.
Jewelry often seems like an all season deal. However, that is not the case. There are pieces of jewelry that are specifically geared towards the summer and those that are geared to the fall. Typically for the fall, the jewelry tends to be a golden color and there also tend to be a lot of reds during the fall season. One of the hottest trends for the fall is the golden leaf. This is a leaf that has been dipped and preserved in gold.
The shoes after Labor Day are always said to be anything but white. This is an outdated ideology with shoes. Feel free to wear white shoes any time of the year. However, now that it is fall, sandals are beginning to fall out of style. Instead, peep-toes and the pointed toe shoes are all the rage. Heels are always in, although the wedge is a big hit this year. Keep the shoes beautiful, but consider using an autumn color. Golden shoes and the shiny dark silvers are a big hit this year. Bright orange is not such a good idea now that it is fall.
Your purse is more than just a place to store your wallet and supplies. It is also a part of your wardrobe. Put away the lime green purse and bring out the brown, red or golden purses. This is fall, and the darker purses are a big hit during this time. Silver and black is always a classic combination and can help to tie together almost any outfit. Remember to match the shape of the purse with your body and not to fall victim to the ideology that just because it is a cute purse it will look cute on you. Remember, every piece of your wardrobe should compliment you, including your purse.
