Must-Have Accessories For Fall

Accessories are an easy and fun way to update your wardrobe without breaking the bank. Check out these hot off the runway looks to get some new ideas for the Fall 2010 season.

Volume is making a comeback in fashionable hats, gloves, and boots. At the Cynthia Rowley and Chanel runway shows, it was all about the puffer accessories. The models strolled down the runway wearing puffer gloves, puffer boots, puffer scarves, and ruffles.

Fringe is all over the runways, from handbags to sexy dresses. One must-have handbag for fall is a fringed number from the Yigal Azrouel collection. This studded, dark chocolate bag will go with everything you wear, and the zipper and tight-fitting strap will keep your valuables safe. The Peter Som Fall 2010 show featured tons of fantastic accessories, including oversized menswear-inspired hats. Large hats in an array of colors completed the sophisticated looks, giving them a city girl edge.

The Alexander Wang Fall 2010 show had models wearing thick thigh-high stockings in dark colors. These types of leggings were seen at several shows, and should be a hit on the city streets as the weather gets colder. The fun and eccentric Betsey Johnson featured cowboy-inspired hats, robber bandanas, and button-up boots, proving that Western accessories are cool, even for those of us who don’t live on a farm.

Add a few of these key pieces to update your look this season, picking accessories that work best with your own personal style.
