Fall Accessories w/ Kim Appelt


The weather is finally starting to change. I’m finally starting the transition out of my summer wardrobe. I find that in the fall I go from wearing all my bright colours, to leaning toward my neutrals more and my blacks. Sometimes I even end up wearing a bit of a “uniform”. One way that is so easy to change up a look, is in your accessories. Adding a scarf to an all black outfit, or a hat to go with your staple leather jacket can change the entire ensemble. I also tend to stay away from my big purses and go for little ones in the fall as I’m not trying to pack everything in there incase I head to the beach! It makes life so much simpler! Here are a few of my favourite fall accessories…



I love a felt hat in the fall, especially in these deep colours.

Sunglasses in the fall are for classics, not for the latest popular trend. Stick to an all black frame too.

Tonight we talked about "wearing white after Labor Day"

For more fashion tips, visit www.stylebykimxo.com


Always a big question as we get close to Labor day is ”Can you wear white after Labor Day?”  

The answer is yes and no.  A bit of history for you, this “no white after Labor day” started in the 1800′s.  

The wives of the super-rich ruled high society with an iron fist after the Civil War.

As more people became millionaires, it was difficult to tell the difference between old money,

and those who only had “vulgar” new money.  By the 1880s, in order to tell who was acceptable and who wasn’t,

the women who were already “in” felt it necessary to create dozens of fashion rules that everyone in the know had to follow.

That way, if a woman showed up at an event in white, but it was after labor day, the other women would know not to give her the time of day.

Since many of you have invested in quality white pieces over the summer and would like to still get some use of of them coming into fall I have listed a few ways that you can keep them in rotation.









1. A white blazer: If you’re planning on wearing one in the fall, pair it with a black or grey tank or turtleneck and dark skinny jeans, instead of the loose camisole and shorts you’ve been wearing it with all summer. This makes it more season-appropriate. Shop my favourites herehere and here. I found this Rag and Bone one on sale here.




2. A white belt: “This accessory mixed in with neutral-colored bottoms and a colorful top offers up a colorblocking effect, which is a very stylish move. You can throw on a black blazer to make it a bit more fall. Find my favorite’s here and here.







3. White or cream tops: “They’re seasonless—always in style.” Some of my favourites for fall herehereand here.

4. White pants: “These can read the wrong season unless they’re in a fall fabric. You wouldn’t want to wear a white silk pant in the winter, however you could pair a white denim pant with a suede shoe or black pump and that’s totally acceptable.” My favourite white jeans for fall: herehere and here.
