I’m never happy to see the end of summer, so I console myself with one of the best things about the arrival of autumn — hot new fall accessories, like handbags, hats, and scarves. As September draws near, I’ve been searching out new accessories I just have to have, and here’s my list of 7 hot fall accessories!
1. Doodle Top Socks
Price: $18.99 at modcloth.com
These darling lettuce-edged socks were made for celebrating fall color, with layers of purple, plum, and blue on a brilliant rust-colored background. I’d wear these with a cord skirt and Mary Janes, or a jumper and cute blouse.
2. Valpolicella Bag
Price: $114.99 at modcloth.com
This bag has so many gorgeous fall details, it’s hard to choose which I like best! There’s the rich wine color, the pretty knit pattern, the fab fringe, and even the sassy tassel. Carry it as a handbag or attach the strap and sling it over your arm. Wear it with your favorite soft sweater and patterned tights for a hot fall look!
3. Serve Chilled Wrist Warmers in Strawberry
Price: $31.99 at modcloth.com
It’s not quite cold enough for gloves or arm-warmers, but there is a chill in the air in the morning and at night. These sweet little wrist warmers ought to do the trick! They’re a gorgeous reminder of a sweet summer treat, and I love that while they don’t exactly match, they definitely go together like hot cider and donuts!
4. Cozy Posy Hat
Price: $31.99 at modcloth.com
I love my wool pea coat, and can’t wait to get it out each fall. This year, I’m even more excited to wear it than usual, since I’ve just bought one of these pretty little hats! I love the posy at the ear, and the color goes with all of my favorite scarves…
5. Proud to Be Your Scarf
Price: $49.99 at modcloth.com
Speaking of scarves, it’s time to update my collection, and I think I’ve found the one I need first. I love the deep blue background (it works wonders for my eyes) and the peacock is such a unique touch! I’d wear this with or without my coat, but definitely with my inkiest blue skinny jeans.
6. Baracus Bracelet
Price: $17.99 at modcloth.com
Layers of chains are very on trend right now, and this bracelet takes that theme and adds a little bad-ass A-Team flair. Wear this with a romper to an end-of-summer bash, or for a night out dancing.
7. Raindrops on Railways Umbrella
Price: $29.99 at modcloth.com
I can think of so many ways to spend a chilly, rain fall afternoon in New York… the bookstore, the thrift shop, a bakery… and definitely an umbrella like this to keep me dry and help me find my way. It’s not quite big enough for sharing, so that hottie at the coffee shop will have to fend for himself, with just a sly smile from you to keep him warm.
So many hot new fall accessories, so little time (only a few weeks, here in Michigan)! Which of these autumn accessories do you like best, or have you spied something else that makes you wish for cooler weather? Please let me know!
