Favorite Fall Accessories for 2010.

Most women wear an accessory and don't even know it.  Yes, the handbag, your wedding ring, a watch and your diamond studs are just a few.  Add a scarf, a multi-pearl/chain necklace, a few bangles, a belt, a hat and what do you have?  For some, a scary mess.  It's enough  to put you over the edge and not want to wear anything at all.  But I assure you, accessories are the icing on the cake.  When a woman is walking down the street with a smart hat, plush scarf, perfect size handbag and sparkling bangles it makes my heart sing.  For me, the clothing doesn't even matter.  Who cares if you have a white t-shirt on from your neighborhood Target store or worn jeans from years ago.  If the accessories are styled right you will look effortlessly chic.  Here's a few of my favorites for Fall.

  1. A solid scarf in a rich berry color matched with a galvanized gray blanket sweater.  Or, a printed scarf with a fitted, v-neck tee(Michael Stars).  Sound easy?  It's very easy and looks great. 
  2. The long necklace with scarf.  Don't be afraid to add and then add some more.  Wrap your scarf once around so it's close to your neck.  The two ends will lay nicely to the side.  Add the long necklace so it will show in between the scarf.  It's very pretty together.  I like to keep a small thin everyday necklace on at all times.  I switch from gold to silver depending on what I'm wearing.  Right now it's a gold, round piece from LF Jewelry designs
  3. A solid fedora hat in black or brown matched with an animal print scarf.  Actually an animal print scarf would be on the top of my list. I've had mine 3 years and still wear it continuously. 
  4. The button earring.  The more times the scarf is wrapped around your neck, the less you want something dangling from your ear.  I've had a few earrings get pushed out due to the scarf being so close.  A small earring is nice and doesn't over power the scarf. 
  5. The over sized ring.  If your fingers are short try not to go too big.
  6. The last favorite.  All of them styled together making one beautiful outfit.  It can be done.
