Although we still have plenty of summer days left ahead of us, we can’t deny that in just a few weeks, our nights will get colder as we ease into the fall season. A lot of the time, the weather can get a bit confusing, and accessorizing is a whole other dilemma. Do we wear scarves or sandals? When do we wear boots? Well, I came up with a few accessories that’ll make it a lot easier for you guys to get ready in the mornings as we enter the fall season. These accessories will have you walking out of the house (or your dorms) feeling all dolled up with minimal effort.
1. Sleek Matte Sunglasses
If you haven’t noticed already, matte is becoming a huge beauty trend, especially on Instagram. From matte nail polish to matte lips, everything matte is dominating in the beauty world. Now that summer is in full swing, and fall is quickly approaching, what better way to transition than a pair of matte sunglasses?! Dress up a pair of matte sunnies with a bold red lipstick, or dress it down with a more natural make-up look. Get that Kendall-Jenner-super-model look that everyone’s obsessed with and it doesn’t even have to be expensive! Grey lenses add that cool and sleek celeb factor that will have people wondering if you walked out of a magazine photo shoot. You literally cannot go wrong with matte.
Since I love to change up my look on a regular basis, I prefer to buy inexpensive sunnies that I won’t cry about if they accidentally break (am I right, ladies?!). However, I’ve been on the hunt for some sturdy sunnies that’ll last me a while.
I stumbled upon LotFancy glasses from Amazon.com and I’ve been super impressed by how well they’re made and look! Matte black sunglasses are timeless and a great staple to have in your fall wardrobe. I also got myself a pair of oversized white sunnies to wear with my cute and dainty floral outfits. I snagged my LotFancy black matte sunnies here and oversized white sunnies here. Below are photos of me wearing them. Check them out!

2. Perfect Pearl
Pearls are absolutely timeless and if you don’t own a few already, I don’t know if I can trust you! Pearls exuberate pure elegance and style and look flawless with any outfit. These sophisticated jewels of the sea can be worn as earrings, bracelets and necklaces and will make you feel (and look) like you walked out of Breakfast at Tiffany’s. If you don’t want to invest in the real thing — don’t worry! There are plenty of inexpensive options out there that look just as elegant.
3. Charming Choker
I remember when chokers were the absolute must-haves in the 2000’s. Well ladies, they’re back and trendier than ever. I’ve been loving the off-white lace chokers for a more charming look and black chokers for an edgier look (plus they look super cute with the black matte sunnies mentioned above ;)) Chokers dominated at New York Fashion Week and can be layered with many of your favorite necklaces, making them absolutely versatile. Chokers are a subtle way to spice up any outfit whether you’re going for a sultry look or a dainty one. If you don’t know where to look, check out Lulu’s for a great variety of white lace and black chokers! Layer them, or wear them solo– you definitely can’t go wrong with a choker this fall season!
4. Faux Fur Key Chain
Faux fur key chains are making their way into this season’s fashion trend. Not only are they downright adorable, but they add a youthful look to any outfit. Cling them on to your handbag or attach them to your keychain! They give off a Paris Hilton vibe and can spice up pretty much any item you cling them to. Check out one of my fave fluffy key chains here.
5. Flirty Flannel
Not only do flannels make a great outfit for the fall, they make for a great accessory for transitioning into fall. Although temperatures may still be scorching hot as we enter the fall season, you don’t have to sacrifice your fall favorites! Tying a flannel around your waist makes for a really flirty laid-back but put-together outfit. Whether you’re wearing it over a cami or tied around your waist, flannels with a little white color in them are great for transitioning into fall and won’t absorb as much heat as darker colors would.
6. Classy Classic Timepiece
As we transition into fall, the cooler nights will have us making sure to keep a sweater on hand. Classic timepieces look great with any outfit, especially chunky sweaters or shawl sweaters. If you’d like to stay on the more conservative side of things, you can shop for watches that are 28mm wide or less. One of my absolute favorite timepieces that fit this criteria can be found here! If you’re looking for a bolder timepiece to complement your style, look for watches larger than 28mm. You can check out one of my favorite larger timepieces here. Either way, you can’t go wrong with a round, classy timepiece with a leather band as you transition to this fall season.
7. Natural Nude Ankle Boot
Ankle boots are perfect for transitioning into fall. They can be worn with a nice pair of leggings or with a cute romper. Regardless of the weather, you can always find a way to pair a pair of ankle boots with your outfit (hah see what I did there?). There are so many different shades of nude when it comes to boots– from taupe to light beige. Pair them with some white pants and a nude sweater, or pair them with some cuffed jeans and a white cami. Nude ankle boots are a staple in any closet and if you’re feeling a bit bold, invest in a pair of heeled nude ankle boots!
8. The Bold Boxy Bag
Not only are boxy handbags undoubtedly spacious, but they’re a huge trend this fall. This geometrically designed handbag adds class and sophistication to any outfit. Larger handbags are great for stashing out quotidian items we usually don’t need but end up keeping in our handbags anyway “just in case.” Smaller boxy handbags give off a coquettish vibe and add that delicate and feminine factor to any look. Look for boxy handbags in autumn colors (I’m currently obsessed with everything wine colored) to pair with your outfit as we transition into this fall season!
9. Plaid Blanket Scarf
Even though temperatures may still be high as we enter the fall season, nights will most likely drop in temperature and we have to be ready for that! Plaid blanket scarves are not only captivating, but they serve a great functional purpose as well — warmth. The versatility of the blanket scarf makes it a staple in any wardrobe — there are so many different ways to wear it. Cozy up in one of these bad boys during those chilly nights or wear them around the house! Blanket scarves are super trendy right now and they add that attractive oversized flair to any outfit. Try it out — you’ll thank me later. 😉
