Autumn is officially here. To be honest, I’m kind of excited about it because the cooler weather brings the opportunity to wear more layers and…more accessories!!
Fashion is headed in a beautiful direction this season. There’s a lot of texture, jewel tones and vintage inspired detailing. Think ladylike and luxe.
Not quite ready to switch out your light and bright summer items for warm winter wear? Why not ease your way into the next season by updating your wardrobe with a few lovely transeasonal accessories.
Wide Brim Hat
The most common question asked about hats is: where would I wear one? I asked myself this very question while debating whether or not to put a leopard print hat on lay-by. The answer? Anywhere!! To a BBQ get together with friends on a cool Friday evening. To coffee with your besties followed by a spot of window shopping on a Saturday afternoon. To the park with the kids on a cool Sunday afternoon. Not to mention on any day of the week when you’re having a not-so-hot hair day. You’ve just got to have confidence.
While browsing the shops a couple of weekends ago, I was so impressed with the hats by Rubi at Cotton On. Not only are they super stylish, but they are also an extremely affordable way to buy into the trend. Available in Grey, Teal and Black, it’s this Bright Barberry colour that caught my eye…

…and yes, I did lay-by that leopard print hat!!
The oversized scarf is such a great way to take a simple outfit, such as a singlet, jeans and ballet flats, to the next fashion level. It can be draped around the neck, used as a shawl, or belted around the waist.
Sussan have the most amazing selection of accessories this season and this scarf is a great example. The Oversized Ikat Scarf features gorgeous shades of green and can be worn all the way through until Spring and even Summer.

Another great way to trick up any outfit. If you follow fabulous fashionistas on Twitter, Instagram or via their blogs, you will notice that their outfit may be fairly simple but their necklace is anything but.
Diva are known for having the latest in accessories at affordable price points and this necklace is no exception. An online exclusive, the Autumn Multi Stone Collar Necklace features warm, rich colours and is a beautiful finishing touch to a transeasonal outfit.

A trend walking its way into our lives this season is coloured tights. You can colour your pins every colour of the rainbow inexpensively and automatically change the look of every outfit you currently own.
Forever New have got this trend covered and their Microfibre Tights come in Black, Fuchsia, Cobalt Blue, Red, Ink Blue, Mustard, Purple and Peacock (as seen below).

Vintage Inspired Belt
My name is Sonia and I’m a belt-a-holic. If I can belt it, I will. And so should you.
A belt is a great way to define or create a waist. You can also change the look of a dress by simply adding or changing a belt. This Dotti number features a beautiful vintage filigree design buckle and comes in Black and Cream.
Verona Filigree Belt, Dotti, $19.95
Mustard is not just a tasty condiment to spice up your food; it is also one of the colours of the season. So get ready to spice up your wardrobe.
Without a doubt, mustard can be a little overwhelming in the form of a dress or skirt or tights, so the next best way to incorporate this colour is with a bag. This Colette Accessories tote is a super chic, super cute addition to your Autumn Accessories.
India Bow & Belt Tote, Colette Accessories, $59.95
So tell me, will you buy into any of these Autumn Accessories?
