5 Hot Fashion Accessories for Fall 2009



As you welcome the cool weather of the fall season, it’s also time to upgrade your accessories with the hottest in season. Longer boots are in such as those with knee-high cuffs and lace-ups. Tights and more tights are coming in bright colors and prints- think paisley and berries for this matter. Scarves and snoods are in especially for the cold night-outs and strolls at the park.

Think of color and some come-backs for accessories this fall and you’ll be enticed to get some of them for yourself.

1. Long and Tall Boots
As mentioned earlier, longer boots are in for the cold season and style. Knee-length boots are in and you’ll see soft and slouchy types, with folded-down cuffs, and lace-up types of boots. Ankle boots are still in and you may find those with embellishments, as well as those with stiletto heels.

2. Bright Tights
Tights are in and they come in color and funky prints. Younger women love the crazy-colored and printed ones to match their mini dresses or skirts. For tights, the brighter the color, the better. But for those in their early 30’s or so, try to mellow up the colors and prints by choosing one-colored tights and prints that are age-appropriate. You can always go with what’s in, but just make sure you don’t go over-the-top.

3. Purses and Bags
Women love carrying their vanity kits in their bags and purses. Of course these accessories need to be fashionable as well. For this fall, there is no particular “it” bag that reigns supreme among others.
If you love the stylish pleated and patterned bags, they are surely good to go with your daytime casual look. For that A-list celeb glam, carry your bag of choice in one of your arms Paris Hilton style.
Chain-link top-handled bags and shoulder bags are also still in; so do the metal and plastic versions. Vintage-style bags such as those in black lace are also in. For a formal dinner, these lacy black purses are classy and elegant in every way.


4. Chunky and Bold Jewelry
From chunky chokers to thick art deco cuffs, you’ll see runway models and celebs trot their stuff with these “it” jewelry. Stacked-up cuffs are quite in especially with the younger ladies. You can also see large dangly chandelier earrings making their big comeback this fall.
Just a tip: If you plan to wear these huge earrings, make sure to leave out on the necklace so as not to overwhelm your overall look.
Faux pearl rings are also in. Those that come in various colors and in clusters are simply sassy on any woman who loves fashionable accessories. Same goes for huge, chunky semi-precious stone rings that come in various colors too.

5. Scarves and Snoods
Silk scarves are a statement for the fall and every lady will look good with it- may it be tied around the neck or used as a headband to keep your hair neat. Colorful prints are most favorable for scarves for this season.
Snoods are hat-scarf-and-hood all rolled into one. These hair-savers are great for bad hair days and for keeping it warm during the cold season.

Fall accessories can be summed up and described as bold, colorful and adventurous because of these top choices for this season. Just remember to keep things moderated so as not to go overboard with the style this fall.
