Any savvy dresser knows that the perfect outfit is comprised of understated classics and statement-making pieces. Have you ever heard of the third-piece rule? During my grueling retail days, I learned a simple trick that can take any outfit from fine to fabulous! It’s simple: wear outfits that consist of three pieces, not including your shoes. This Fall, elevate your look by pairing the essentials in your closet with a few well-chosen accessories modeled by our favorite fashion bloggers on Instagram.
Scarves are amazing and can take any outfit up a notch. They are one of my favorites accessories. Whether you’re draping a thick and cozy one around your neck, or tying a silk version around your favorite handbag this must have item lends for a totally chic look.
Cell phones have pretty much rendered watches useless; making the ageless accessory more of a fashion statement than a necessity.
Amp up your next look with a great tailored blazer. From pairing it with t-shirts and hoodies to wearing it with your favorite shift dress, the perfect blazer can add a level of sophistication and versatility.
A hat can really make an outfit. And let’s be honest, they’re perfect for those bad hair days. Hats are a very strong accessory all year. However, my favorites during the fall season are the tomboy-channeling beanie and the free-spirited floppy hat.
Whether fancy or costume, nothing adds oomph to your wardrobe like jewelry. Mix your metals with pride. What I love most about jewelry is that it reflects your style in a very personal way. Have fun with it!
Fall is the season for layering– a style that not only keeps you warm but also makes any outfit interesting. I am a cardigan fanatic! Chunky, oversized, fitted, long, short, buttoned up, loose, as a coat, as a dress, as a top, with leggings, with a dress… You get the idea. This is probably the most functional piece in your closet! Fun fact from my closet (but probably not surprising now), I own more cardigans than coats, blazers, and hats combined! Don’t judge me.
Because, honestly, who doesn’t feel sleek in a cape? This stylish and captivating jacket alternative is the ultimate in warmth and versatility. Pair it with a turtleneck, jeans, and a slouchy hat for a comfortably stylish weekend look.
Bonus: No outfit is complete without a handbag. Handbags are one way to get a quick style refresher. Invest in the right pieces for a luxe-factor that will add personality to a myriad of looks.
