5 Accessories Your Fall Wardrobe Needs

by Arielle Dachille

It's time to retire your summer patio furniture, warm-weather dresses, and beach towels, guys. Fall is back for another season of harvest festivals, changing leaves, and pumpkin-flavored everything. In addition to all of those wonderful seasonal treats, autumn fashion is, hands down, the best style period of the whole calendar year. That said, we've already put a lot of thought into what our favorite fall 2015 accessories are. Just call it being responsible.

It's not just the fact that we want to go shopping for new stuff. I mean, that's a pretty big part of it, but there are other reasons. After three months full of summer, we're just ready for a change. Our sandal-weary feet have had enough of the summer grime. Our light-shade leather bags are WAY too dirty for their own good. And just putting it all out there — we're pretty much ready for our sunglass tans to go away. It's high time to incorporate some leather boots, dark suede handbags, and statement watches into our lives.

Basically, whenever autumn is ready to come knocking at our door, we're ready for it. Just so you're prepared, we've teamed up with Nordstrom to round up the fall accessories we won't be able to live without this season.

In the age of ubiquitous smartphones, it may feel like watches have become obsolete. But other than the function of telling time, the fashion of incorporating a watch into your arm party is a forever classic.

Don A Playfully Non-Wallet-Looking-Wallet

It's a fact. We all love accessories that remind us of our most favorite parts of the day: breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack time. Apply this logic to your own life with a confection-inspired, sweet-as-candy wallet.

Top It Off With A Felt Panama Hat

Another piece of evidence that we're obsessed with '70s trends is the fact that we can't stop thinking about felt hats. Rock a felt Panama hat like the one above to contribute further to your flower child look.
