We're officially in full-on fall mode, and it's the best time of year to get experimental with your style. Why? Because a shift in cooler temperatures means more opportunities to reinvent your look, especially when pieces like bold outerwear and pavement-stomping boots come into play.
And while you may be busy with your usual seasonal festivities, like escaping on fall weekends with friends or finding the perfect decorative gourd (same), this fall's statement accessories are anything but ordinary. From fierce animal prints to head-turning footwear (like UGG's Classic Boom Buckle Boot), we've rounded up the styles that are bound to be the focal point of your next look. Step out confidently in a look that's uniquely your own this season, and shop our full edit of statement-making accessories (plus, why we love them), below.
UGG, Classic Boom Buckle Boot, $160, ugg.com
Can't decide between a sneaker or a boot? Or looking for a standout shoe to give your fall rotation more edge? UGG's new hybrid boot takes any outfit to the next level with an innovative design that combines the brand's most iconic style with a sneaker sole.
Topshop, Contrast Faux Leather Vinyl Trench, $150, topshop.com
The Matrix-inspired styles ruled the runways this season, so why not consider them when shopping for outerwear? Glossy vinyl coats really shine when layered over monochromatic pieces for a sleek look that's undeniably pulled together.
Animal Print Fleece
& Other Stories, Tiger Print Utility Fleece Jacket, $149, stories.com
There's always a sense of fierceness that comes with wearing animal prints, from
leopard spots to zebra stripes. Embrace a wild tiger pattern this season with a
fleece zip-up that's as cozy as it is eye-catching.
Mounser, Form and Sun Earrings, $275, 24s.com
Playful earrings with artful shapes will leave friends asking, "Where did you get those?" We're especially loving the jeweled stones and sunny colors on this sparkling pair.
AFRM, Zadie Semi Sheer Turtleneck, $38, shopnnordstrom.com
Tie-dye prints were everywhere this summer, but the fun doesn't have to stop with the season change. Instead, build outfits with a funky turtleneck that looks great tucked into denim or worn underneath a slip dress.
Colorful Hair Accessories
ASOS Design, Pack of 8 Hair Clips, $24, asos.com
Hair accessories are available in a variety of options this fall to find your perfect style match. And while each of these embellished clips has the potential to make a statement on its own, try fastening on multiple types for an extra-customized look.
Bright Mini Bag
Staud, Kenny Croc-Embossed Leather Top Handle Bag, $325, saks.com
Mini yet mighty, this bag packs a lot of punch — especially with its bright pistachio hue. Pair the bag with a neutral look to ensure the green hue shines its brightest.
Wilfred, Saba Sweater, $148, aritzia.com
Sweaters are a fall staple, but this year, it's all about novel knits — like candy-colored designs with color-blocked stripes. Pair with a vinyl mini skirt and chunky boots for the finishing touch.
ba&sh, Poly Gold Metallic Skirt, $295, ba-sh.com
A lamé midi skirt is definitely an attention-grabber, as it picks up the light at every turn. This shiny piece also has an unexpected zig-zag pattern and would look cool paired with a graphic tee and leather booties.
AGOLDE, Criss Cross Upsized Jeans, $178, verishop.com
Reach for something other than your classic skinny or boyfriend jeans this fall. This reconstructed "criss-cross" pair has an off-kiltered front to give a really modern twist to a vintage-inspired fit.
Wide Leg Corduroy
SAMSØE SAMSØE,Kelly Corduroy Trousers, $185, intermixonline.com
Channel '70s vibes with flared pink corduroy trousers from this Copenhagen-based label. Then, make an extra impact with a vibrant sweater and moto jacket on top.
