As the temperature drops and the nights start to draw in, the upcoming fall season is one of the most exciting in the fashion calendar, with coats, long boots, and comforting knitwear finally being brought out of storage. While these basics of fall fashion remain the same year upon year, there are certain tweaks you can do to bring your look bang up to date. Here are five simple accessories with which you can update your look for fall 2020.
- A facemask
Arguably the most necessary accessory for fall 2020 is a facemask. With the coronavirus pandemic showing no sign of ending any time soon, it is important to do what you can to protect yourself and others; indeed, in some places, the wearing of a facemask is obligatory. Fortunately, retailers soon caught on to the need for facemasks, and there are now plenty of masks available in attractive designs that keep you protected while still looking cute.
Buying jewellery online is another simple way of mixing up your look for a relatively low cost. Build up a collection of statement necklaces and earrings, for example, and you will soon have a costume jewellery wardrobe fit for every occasion. Make sure your jewellery is bang on trend by updating your collection with chunky chains and pearls. Or, you could keep things classic with beautifully crafted fine jewellery that holds a special meaning to you.
Boots are the perfect footwear option for the fall and winter seasons, providing greater warmth and protection from the elements than sandals or shoes. With boots being available in a variety of styles to suit every taste and budget, there is really no excuse not to invest in this fall staple. You can’t go wrong with over the knee boots for a high-fashion supermodel look, or opt for the perennially popular Chelsea boot to inject some rock star glamour into your look. Alternatively, if your style is more laid back, hiking boots will provide you with comfort and style.

Your flimsy summer dresses might not be warm enough to withstand the chill once the temperature starts to drop, but on the other hand, you might not be quite ready to break out your heavy winter coat. In this case, a scarf is often more than enough to keep you warm during the changing seasons. A chunky tartan print scarf will give you cozy autumnal vibes and has the benefit of being large enough to double as both a scarf and a shawl if your shoulders get cold.
Nothing screams fall more than a sophisticated felt hat. Choose a fedora in a muted autumn neutral, such as gray, black, or camel, or you could add a bit of French sophistication with a beret. Alternatively, if your style is more relaxed, or you would prefer a hat with a bit more coverage, opt for a cozy woolen beanie.
