Accessories pull together fall outfits this season

Often, a perfect fall day includes a hot drink, crisp weather, and the smell of leaves. A perfect fall outfit starts with jeans and a warm sweater, but the addition of seasonal accessories can keep you warm and comfortable for the upcoming dropping temperatures.

Ankle Boots

One of the best ways to stay warm is to have the proper footwear. Ankle boots are the perfect item to keep you looking sharp without sacrificing comfort. With a variety of heel heights, buckles, zippers, and fringe, you can find a pair that goes with any autumn outfit. Style them with a pair of cuffed skinny jeans and some colorful socks for the perfect fall look.  


There are endless possibilities when it comes to scarves. There are several different fabrics, styles, and colors to choose from when adding a scarf to your outfit. From plaid to rich fall colors, a bright knit scarf can upgrade any old outfit instantly. Scarves are also very versatile, with several ways to style them, making them a staple in your cold weather wardrobe. Knotted, wrapped, or twisted, a scarf is ideal for staying warm and stylish.


Jackets are a great way of making a statement and adding a little something extra to your look. A jacket can protect you from the elements outside at a football game, as well as keep you cozy in freezing classrooms. If you want something a little more edgy, try an army style jacket. Or, if you’re looking for something a little more classic, try a jean jacket. An investment in this lightweight layer is perfect because it can transition from a fall staple into a spring staple as well.
