Accessory Trends to Get You Excited for Fall

October 24, 2016

As fun as summer dressing can be, autumn’s arrival gives us that excited kid-in-a- candy store feeling for what to wear next. At Style Encore, we’ve poured over countless gently used accessories and chosen the items we think our customers will love most this fall. And if you’re like us, you can’t resist a great deal. Second-hand shopping doesn’t mean you have to compromise style for great prices. Our stores are filled with such an amazing selection of accessories that you may be happy to say goodbye to summer and jump right in to fall. 


Hats add a dramatic finish to any outfit and come in so many different shapes and styles that there’s lots of room for experimentation. Topping off the looks this season are fedoras, berets and boater hats. We love them because they keep us warm and toasty, but they also hold our hair in place when fall winds are blowing. Another reason we tip our hats to this accessory? We can throw on one when we don’t have time to do our hair and still look completely pulled together. 


Shoes are the mighty multi-taskers of all the accessories. Comfort is a must, but so are good looks, when it comes to finding the perfect pair (or two) for your feet.  The latest styles include booties with a low or high heel, pointed ballerina shoes, men’s wear flats, and over-the-knee boots. Looking for something more classic? You can never go wrong with mid-height pumps. Choose a few key pairs for fall to be sure you always start the day on the right foot. 


You may want to ditch your simple black tote and opt for something more interesting this fall. Perforated suede and leather are adding subtle texture to classic silhouettes for an updated look. You’ll also see the re-emergence of cross-body bags. These easy-to-carry styles offer hand-free convenience to make multitasking even easier. Top-handle designs are also trending in the handbag category. This lady-like silhouette often includes a cross-body strap, so you can take advantage of both trends this season. 


The right jewelry does wonders for your outfit. Whether your goal is to dress it up or dress it down, a strand of beads here or a stone pendant there pulls the look together with an amazing finishing touch. This fall has our Style Encore customers shopping for chokers, statement pendants, tassel necklaces and bracelets for layering. Try mixing classic and current to keep your look up-to-date and modern. 

Adding these key accessories to your fall wardrobe is the smart, affordable way to update your style without over spending. And when you shop at Style Encore, you’ll enjoy gently used accessories for 70% less than the original retail prices. Stop in to a Style Encore store soon and check out the selection!
