Falling for the Seasons Best Accessories

November 7, 2014

Even though summer temps might be far from over here in Newport Beach, there’s no denying that fall’s hottest buys are hitting stores as we speak. Pivot into the new season before the temperature actually drops with a new bag or piece of jewelry or buy game-changing items now and save them for colder days to come. Whatever your shopping strategy is, the first step in any key purchase is inspiration.

Knee High Boots:
With the ’60s trend in full swing for fall it makes total sense to pair your mod-inspired shift or micro mini with a pair of knee-high boots. My faves right now are by Yves St. Laurent, Alexa Wagner and Pierre Hardy and can be found at one of America’s most coveted designer boutiques that just so happens to be in Newport Beach – A’maree’s

Sunnies:
Just because it’s fall doesn’t mean we have to ditch your shades. Besides, it’s a proven fact that they make us more glamorous and mysterious. So while you’re stocking up on your fall accessories, pick up some bold sunglasses to add a little warmth to the chilly autumn days. Try a variety of different colors, styles, and shapes that put a fun twist on some classic designs, check out the Wonderland label, they can be found online or locally at Bardot off of Westcliff.

Hat and More Hats:
Yes, you can wear a hat! Whether you’re at a formal event or just running some errands, with a proper fit, a hat can be the one accessory that sets you apart, but they’re not just around to make you look stylish. Besides finishing off the perfect fall look they also shield our face from the damaging rays of the sun. Newport Beach’s Bronzed Bunny, OC’s first and only organic spray tanning salon, carries the best selections. Head over and check out the array of Lovely Birds hats, made proudly in America. Lovely Bird hats come in a range of classic shapes and colors that are beaded, feathered, woven and trimmed to boho-chic proportions.

Bucket Bag:
Summer’s carry over trend is still huge! If you’re looking for he perfect “It” bag, then it’s all about the roomy ‘80’s inspired drawstring bucket bag; frankly, I’m not surprised that bucket bags have stealthily gained traction among the fashionable. It’s perfect for storing all the necessities so neatly tied up to avoid spillage; these bags are not only adorable, but très useful too. Unlike a top handle tote or a clutch, these bags have long cross-body straps, which means you get to enjoy unencumbered hands! Check out this beautiful American-made drawstring bag made by Shinola, featuring premium leather handcrafted in Chicago and can be bought at A’marees in Newport Beach.
