Yes, you heard us right — fall is right around the corner. While we may not want to admit it, soon we will be swapping out our sandals for ankle booties and kimonos for leather jackets; saying “goodbye” to our oversized sunnies and sunhats, and saying “hello” to other accessories. But fear not, we don’t have to revamp our entire warm weather wardrobes to achieve an envy-worthy fall ensemble. Instead, these 5 transitional fall accessories can help shift our entire look for when the leaves start to fall.
Chokers inspired by Tadashi Shoji
Let’s be real with each other for a second. Those rubber chokers we all wore “back in the day” just aren’t doing it for us anymore. Instead, popping up on runways everywhere are chokers made of metals and jewels. While your gold or silver choker adorned a stylish one piece bathing suit this summer, take note from Tadashi Shoji for fall. Incorporate your favorite necklace by wearing it with a lacy long-sleeved shirt, like models did on the Fall 2017 runways, or a simple black tee paired with leather leggings.

Hats inspired by Dior
There’s something so “Carrie Bradshaw” about a beret — or any hat for that matter. While SJP may have perfected a variety of hats throughout countless seasons of Sex and the City, Dior revived the trend in the houses’ Fall 2017 Ready-to-Wear collection. Since summer is all about straw floppy this and oversized that, swap your wide-brimmed embroidered hat for an edgier option. Think a leather beret paired with an oversized sweater, or a printed turban styled with a breezy jumpsuit.

Long & Layered Necklaces inspired by Erin Fetherston
Boho befriended classic during Erin Fetherston’s Fall 2017 runway show. Long layered necklaces — that you would normally find accessorizing a flowing maxi dress in the summer — made monochromatic matching sets sparkle. Instead of fearing the final wear of your go-to summer statement necklace, add them to your fall ensembles by allowing them to be the centerpiece of your outfits.

Bangles inspired by Georgine
This summer, bangles were the chicest of accessories. From five-strand wrap bracelets from Chan Luu, to stackable gold charm bracelets from Free People, the trend popped up everywhere. But Georgine reincorporated this feminine summer trend into her Fall 2017 collection, pairing the jewels with mesh tees and satin slip dresses. This fall, try the look out for yourself by wearing your bangles with leather jackets and embroidered mini skirts.

Statement Earrings inspired by Jonathan Simkhai
Statement earrings and sleek ponytails are the ultimate duo for the summer. But Jonathan Simkhai proved that your dangly, chunky, pendulum-inspired earrings shouldn’t be reserved for the warmer temps, but can transition into the fall — even winter (but let’s not get ahead of ourselves). On Simkhai’s Fall 2017 runway, models accented Victorian-inspired bell sleeved shirts and denim cropped jackets with gold statement earrings. Follow suit: slick back your hair, throw on your favorite denim, and rock your favorite earrings all throughout the fall.
