5 Accessories to invest in right now - YAM Sept/Oct 2023

Fall’s clothes may have taken a turn for the sleek, tailored and classic, but the accessories bring all the drama and then some. Capture the season’s mood with bold shapes, vibrant hues and more than a hint of ’80s glam.

1. Wrap It Up

Toss a gloriously oversized shawl or scarf over your shoulders, preferably in a chunky knit or lushly textured weave and richly autumnal or jewel-toned colour. (Ombre blanket scarf, All Saints.)

2. Top it Off

This is the year of the chapeau and, while you could opt for a preppy-chic beret, what you will want to wear is a fuzzy bucket hat, as much cozy comfort as cool street cred. (Faux fur black bucket hat from Emma Brewin.)

3. Be Bold

Jewelry this season is big, bold, dramatic and as individual as you are, whether it’s a stack of sparkly bangles, a single giant ear cuff or a chunky oversized pendant. (Zilie earrings by Darlings of Denmark, Smoking Lily.)

4. Make a Point

Kick your sweet, round-toed flats to the curb. The pointy pump is back — but then, so is the lace-up combat boot, for all your stomping-around-righteously needs. (Vionic Lena, Heart & Sole Shoes.)

5. Handle It

Just accept that you will need a new bag, whether it’s a squishy suede clutch, portfolio-sized metallic tote or the must-have top-handled satchel in eyecatching red. (Ferragamo Iconic Top Handle in Velvet Red.)
