Chill in the Air

10.01.2009 WRITTEN BY Ashley T+P Blog Central

Here in Oregon fall just hit like a ton of bricks on Tuesday. The biting wind and crisp cold mornings capped off by equally cool afternoons. It’s officially adios summer. Somehow the end of summer translated into me thinking about shoes and accessories and so, I bring you a quick review of accessories that are must haves in your closet.

1. A GREAT BELT (or 2) – black or brown or both depending on your wardrobe. Use belts to accent your best attribute. Tiny waist? Belt the waist. Slim hips? Belt the hips. Hiding the Mid-Section? Belt the hips and blouse the top a bit.

2. A FABULOUS PAIR OF BOOTS & HEELS – Slouchy and heeled or flat and riding, boots are what fall is all about. Invest in a great pair with a touch of detail for a happy-heeled autumn. No woman’s wardrobe should be without a heel, this doesn’t necessarily mean “high” heel, but a little kitten heel lift will do the trick with your trousers as well. Invest in a bold color – dark red or purple or a metallic – bronze or pewter, for a chic, updated look that will make your all black outfit pop!

3. Scarves – wool or silk depending on your locale. Scarves on handbags, scarves in the hair, scarves around the neck – all add a touch of pattern or color that is unexpected and shows you put a touch of extra thought into pulling off the outfit.

Happy Accessorizing!
