From fun sunglasses to feminine bags, we’ve scoured the shelves to find your new favorite accessories for fall. Take a peek at how to make these must-haves work for your busy office (and social!) life, and be prepared to want them all (don’t say we didn’t warn you).
From thick frames and exaggerated shapes to bright colors and bold patterns, there’s no better way to pump up your work commute than with a pair of fall’s boldest pairs. We especially love the playful prints, rounder frames, and matte finishes this season. Throw on a pair after work, too, while the autumn sun sets and happy hour is in full swing.
Bright colors in the fall? Yes, please! Pile on a candy-colored crossbody, and don’t be afraid to go with an unexpected hue. Rich orange, yellow, teal, blue, pink, and red are a few of our favorites this season, and they pair perfectly with fall’s greys, blacks, and browns (and definitely add life to that dull-but-trusty pantsuit!).
Be edgy yet modern by draping yourself in fall’s must-have clear jewels. Whether you choose earrings, a necklace, or a cuff, pair the statement piece with the season’s deep, dramatic tones to make it pop. Keep the look office-appropriate by pairing the jewelry with cozier knits, tweeds, and sweaters.
There’s nothing that describes fall better than the perfect knit scarf. From infinity scarves to pashminas, you can’t go wrong looping one around your neck at the office. To keep yourself from getting too toasty indoors, make sure to pick one in a knit material that’s much thinner than the kind you’d wear to shovel snow later in the year. Try an unexpected color like mint or mustard this season, or go classic with leopard print, houndstooth, or plaid.
The most ladylike accessory on the list is the top-handle bag—seen on just about every fall runway this year. From sleek textures and chic studs to tassels and color blocking, trade in your oversized satchels, summer totes, and boring briefcases for one of these. A top handle bag works just as well for day as it does for night, making it your most versatile bag of the season.
