Fall 2015 Trend Guide: The Accessories
My final part of this season's trend guide is all about accessories. The easiest and most practical way to update any look is to keep your accessories fresh and modern.
Studded Clutch, $195.14 |Diesel|
A few weeks back, I talked about bags for men, and now I'm talking about the 'man clutch'. The clutch has been a staple accessory in womenswear, and for the past few seasons I've noticed men adopting this accessory (myself included). This isn't your mother's clutch, but one that's more daring, bold, and statement making.
How to wear it: A great way to add some flare to your look, opt for a color or print that complements your look, but stands out - styles should be masculine and not over designed. I don't carry a clutch during the day unless I'm attending an event, so I recommend carrying one on an evening out instead of your day bag.

Laced Ankle Boots, $481.64 |Henderson Baracco|
Boots aren't groundbreaking for Fall, so why are they a trend this season? Subtle updates like chunkier soles, richer tones, and luxe styles will make it absolutely necessary to pick up a new pair.
How to wear it: Look for styles that are easy transitions from day-to-night. Sporty Oxfords and Chelsea boots are the perfect luxe styles to meet your 9-to-5 wardrobe requirements and take you into the night. If you are looking for a sportier look, opt for a jewel tone canvas sneaker.

Banana Leaf Scarf, $12 |Urban Outfitters|
My favorite accessory is a scarf; it can update your look or change it completely. This season there is a full range of scarves from wool, yarn, and fur to blanket and collar styles. Easily used to add a bit of elegance to your look, they were seen in almost every runway show this season.
How to wear it: Scarves can be worn every day with cardigans and t-shirts to a classic suit or formal tuxedo. It's important to think of your look; for a more casual style go for a blanket or collar style; if you are wearing a suit or formal tuxedo opt for a fur collar or extended length wool scarf.
