The Top Eight for Fall ’08: Accessories

As the leaves begin to turn and school is back in session, the time comes for the summer to fall wardrobe transition. A few well-placed accessories can update old autumn essentials and make you look fashion forward without replacing your entire collection. Picking the right scarf, boot, or bag can be challenging, but fortunately the team here at New to You has complied some guidelines to create fun looks for fall ’08.

1. Purple, purple, purple! The “It” color for this fall, you can’t go wrong with a purple scarf, bag, shoe, or boot. Pair your purple with a subtly-toned outfit for maximum impact.

2. Textures are the theme of fall attire. Whether it is a feathered wrap or a fringed boot, thick and rich textures add fall style points to any ensemble.

3. Knee high boots are always an autumn essential: look for a pair this season in a flat, riding boot style.

4. Pleads and bows create rich details this season. Bulkier fall fabrics lend themselves to the exaggerated lines and loops on bags and shoes.

5. Plaid- a fall staple- is being worn in new ways. Check out a pair of red and black plaid pumps to add some autumn flavor to an office look.

6. Chain-handle bags are the purse to have this fall. Designers like Prada blend textured leather with metal-link handles for the ultimate in fall chic.

7. Winter florals decorate this season’s skirts and scarves, a twist on your summer favorites in colors like burnt orange and chocolate brown.

8. Chunky-heel pumps round out the list as the must-have shoe of the season. A new take on traditional pumps, these shoes have more square-shaped heels- a fashion “do” with added stability!
