Fall Accessories

One of my favorite parts of being a stylist is accessorizing – accessories and simple styling are the tools that make your outfit into a look, and a style that other’s notice. In choosing shoes, handbags and even nail colors, one of the first pieces is using the season’s Pantone colors.  You can learn more here: https://www.pantone.com/fashion-color-report-fall-2017 but basically Pantone colors are based on NYFW and color combos shown by designers.  I’m attaching the New York version, but there is also a London version. Use this little guide when selecting your next clutch, loafer or nail polish. Before rushing out and buying the latest and greatest accessories or clothing pieces (and I love to shop), use the Pantone guide above and CHECK YOUR CLOSETS!  I did a quick search before I hit up my guilty pleasure of Shop Bop and look at these gems that will totally take my look from zero to hero.   I do have a confession- the vintage Enid Collins bucket bag is new this season.  I found it at a consignment sale and couldn’t resist.   In looking at shoes for the upcoming season, I’ve been looking for more transitional shoes booties, like a peep toe, since Atlanta stays warm until early-mid October.  I have a few brands that are my go-to, so I usually search for those first- mainly because of comfort.  Hands down, Vince Camuto are my favorite for comfort and style, and affordability.  Although I just found an adorable pair of Jack Rogers Maya booties that I looking forward to rocking.  I also almost always buy neutrals.  Where some shoes speak in color, mine speak in style, I suppose.  I just want the versatility of neutral colors and would rather that “pop” from another accessory.  Below are my accessories of the season:
