Handbags and headbands and hats, oh my! Theyâ€™re the do-everything accessories you canâ€™t live without this fall. A new hat will jazz up last seasonâ€™s jacket, add a little variety to the daily ponytail routine, or hide a bad hair day. Remember, a little trend goes a long way. Layering is hot right now, but it doesnâ€™t mean you should pile on every fall trend at once, especially if you pick something attention-getting. Sure, you can wear a sharp chapeau while carrying a crocodile bag, but make sure one doesnâ€™t cancel out the other.
Try the trends: A top seller at eLuxury is the Marc Jacobs Bow Hat (178.00) in grey, plaid, and tweed. No wonder, it’s the perfect topper to any autumn ensemble. But no need to spend that much, there’s a perfect knock-off Bow Hat for $22.50 at dELiA*s.com.
You’ll also find an adorably feminine , web exclusive Bow Beret.
for only $15.00. The black and white checks are a signature look this season found on everything from trenches to ballet flats.
