The 4 Fall 2012 Accessories to Wear Now

While we love filling our closets with new dresses and coats, there is no easier way to update our wardrobe than with a brand new accessory—whether that means a pair of shoes, a piece of jewelry, a fab handbag, or anything in between. With that in mind, today’s Accessory Report story is jam-packed with inspiration for the fall season. We have rounded up four outfits that incorporate four different accessories and we have all the details on how to wear them and where to buy them. So, don’t delay. Click through for the scoop!

Chain Necklace
Who is wearing it: Rita Ora.
Why we like it: A chain necklace is a simple way to give an outfit a smart and sophisticated twist. Wear it with a blouse, over a turtleneck sweater, or with a knit sweater dress.
Where can I find one: Kenneth Jay Lane’s Double-Link Chain Necklace ($95), Kelly Wearstler’s Chain Link Choker Necklace ($275), and Tory Burch’s Charlie Box Chain Necklace ($265) are all super-chic.

Felt Hat
Who is wearing it: Diane Kruger.
Why we like it: Obviously, a felt hat is great for bad hair days, but we also like the way it gives an outfit a bohemian twist. We would wear ours with a floaty dress or blue jeans, knee-high boots, and a leather jacket.
Where can I find one: Check out Phoebe’s Felt Hat ($130), Urban Outfitters’ Classic Felt Floppy Hat ($29), and Eugenia Kim’s Farrah Portrait Fedora ($319).

Burgundy Bag
Who is carrying it: Miranda Kerr.
Why we like it: While a burgundy bag will add a touch of color to your outfit, it won’t steal the focus, which means you can wear it with almost anything. We like oversized satchels, in particular, but choose a bag that suits your lifestyle.
Where can I find one: We like BCBGeneration’s Sadie Satchel ($116), ASOS’s Front-Lock Contrast Bowler ($60), and See by Chloé’s Poya Leather Satchel ($529).

Ankle-Strap Heels
Who is wearing it: Emma Watson.
Why we like it: An ankle-strap heel can be super-flattering if you work the look properly. We suggest wearing it with cropped skinny pants that stop just above the strap (as Emma has done) or with a skirt that lands just above the knee.
Where can I find them: Try Zara’s Vamp Heels ($80), Rachel Zoe’s Cole Snakeskin Ankle-Strap Pumps ($132), and Jean-Michel Cazabat’s Lex Ankle Strap Pumps ($275).
