Accessories Report

Here in Massachusetts, fall weather comes and goes from one day to the next. Working fall pieces into an outfit on a hot day is definitely a challenge. So, before you ship those light weight summer dresses home, think about how you can incorporate them into your fall wardrobe!

I spotted this Fashionista on an 80-degree October day, not exactly the quintessential weather that we all love. However, the hot weather could not deter this Fashionista’s style. She paired a light weight floral dress with bold, studded booties for an elegant and chic look. Her bright, oversized bag is perfect for transitioning into fall and is a great carry all bag for class (so much cuter than a backpack)!

Her lightweight dress may have been intended for summer weather, but it actually works as the perfect fall piece. The delicate florals are a huge trend this fall (and for the upcoming spring) and can dress up any outfit. Pair this dress with a structured blazer to adjust this look for chillier weather. Headed to your internship or presentation? This feminine look would be the perfect professional look for either occasion.

Booties are a great way to merge the two seasons (summer and fall) together. Booties have taken the fashion world by storm, and recently, it seems everyone has a pair! (If you don’t, go purchase some). Booties come in a variety of styles ranging from edgy to elegant. They add height to your stature, making your legs look leaner and longer in a way that riding boots simply cannot. They add dimension and can immediately dress up any simple outfit. When you actually start to feel that fall chill, pair your booties with a pair of high-waisted jeans and a leather jacket for a killer, fall appropriate look.

So, it’s time to stack your arsenal, Fashionistas! This fall, be sure to have at least one pair of booties to keep your fall wardrobe versatile, bold and chic.
