Summer is gone and, with it, all the freedom of wearing those skimpy, liberating pieces that require little effort to look amazing.

However, look on the bright side: the cooler months provide us with an opportunity to experiment and venture into new sartorial waters.

And while you might lack the time or financial means to renew your wardrobe for the season ahead, you can still breathe new life into your outfits… with accessories!

Oversized Scarf

Not everyone’s fall season is blessed with temperate climate and weather conditions that allow all kinds of wacky fashion combinations.

For some people, the end of summer means it’s already time to bust out all those pieces that will keep us snug and toasty during the transitional weather.

And, while staying warm and chic at the same time may seem like a bit of a challenge, you can definitely achieve this if you equip your fall wardrobe with a snug accessory such as an oversized scarf.

These fuzzy pieces will not only keep you warm and comfy, they will also add volume and dimension to your outfits and make them more eye-catching.

If you’re feeling brave, pick a hefty scarf in bold, solid color that will be ideal for breaking apart those monotone fall hues.

Alternatively, go for a black, grey or cream iteration of this fall staple and you will be able to match it with any outfit you chose to rock during this season.

Sleek Loafers

Many women look forward to summer months, as this gives them the opportunity to rock those fabulous strappy heels and stilettos that might not be convenient for other season.

However, fall is the time of going back to work or lectures, which often requires more comfortable and practical footwear.

And yet, if you want to still keep things stylish, it might be a bit of a challenge to find that perfect piece of autumnal shoes that will combine fashion and convenience.

Well, we might have found a solution for you: not only are loafers immensely on trend, they are also super easy to slip into and go about your day.

The only trick is to choose an elegant enough pair that will mesh together well with just about any outfit combo.

To that end, you might want to go for a pair with a sleeker finish – leather or faux leather loafers in brown or black might be ideal for this purpose.

And when it comes to planning your outfits around these shoes, it’s very hard to get it wrong – loafers will blend in with almost all items from your closet.

For example, combining loafers with more causal pieces, such as ripped jeans, will add an elegant vibe to otherwise edgy pieces.

Alternatively, pair up your loafers with slacks or culottes, and you will get an outfit more appropriate for formal and office environments.

Ankle Boots

It seems impossible to look at any clothes shop, runway or fashion blog dedicated to fall/winter without seeing the ever-popular ankle boot.

This ubiquitous piece of footwear has certainly established itself as an autumnal must-have, not in the least because of its trendy factor paired up with never-ending versatility.

These days, you will find countless iterations of the classic ankle boot trends: from the sleek patent leather to animal print to the crazy glittery pieces reminiscent of the ‘70s disco era.

Which ever style you choose to go with this season, there is no doubt that a pair of ankle boots will work great with just about any outfit.

For example, a popular pairing involves combining ankle boots with a pair of cropped flared pants.

Alternatively, ankle boots look great with culottes and even more revealing pieces, such as mini skirts or bodycon dresses.

Alternatively, a pair of oversized hoops will bring some drama to your fall outfits and make them more dynamic and eye-catching.

Mini Backpack

Nothing evokes that “back to school” feeling quite like going shopping for a new backpack.

And while recent fashion seasons have showcased all kinds of interesting backpack styles, at the moment, nothing seems trendier than rocking a miniature version of this essential student staple.

Not only are these mini-bags delightfully fashion-forward, they are – just like regular-sized backpacks – incredibly practical.

And while they might not be storing bulky laptops or piles of textbooks anytime soon, they still offer more than enough space to fit your everyday essentials and then some.

Baker Boy Hat

Few things can be as efficient for rounding up an autumnal ensemble quite like a chic hat.

As recent fashion trends have shown, there isn’t a shortage of gorgeous and stylish hats you can choose to make your go-to accessory of the season.

Over-the-Knee Boots

An ideal item for staying stylish even when temperatures require a little more covering up are over-the-knee boots.

This type of statement footwear will be sure to give an extra dose of sassiness to any otherwise lackluster fall outfit.

However, if you still want to keep you falltime boots friendly for everyday occasions, go for a pair that’s flat or has a minimal heel.

When it comes to styling your over-the-knee boots, things are easier than they may seem at a first glance.

And what better way to protect your eyes and nip the problem or crow’s feet in the bud than donning a pair of stylish sunglasses?

A perfect choice for autumnal design are the wildly popular sunglasses whose frames tend to be on the smaller sides.

For something more modern, pair up your glasses with a sleek, mid-parted ‘do and an off-the-shoulder shirt for a fashion-forward and sensual look.

Classy Mules

Perhaps the weather has gotten too chilly for those cute strappy heels and sandals, but you’re just not yet ready to give up that comfortable, airy feeling on your feet.

An ideal candidate to help you transition into the cooler months while still looking chic are mules, which are definitely having a big moment in the fashion world right now.
