Fashion designers have worked all last year on their 2022 fall outerwear collections and that means a new fall wardrobe inspiration for all of us. We discovered bold and warm accessory updates for your outside or daytime fashion choices.
While many of your favorite tops and bottoms might be worn throughout the year, a fresh way to stay fashion savvy is to double check your get-ready room for your favorite accessories and reorganize.
Autumn is a great time to reset and re-invest in a statement piece or two to keep your wardrobe updated. We’ve watched a few runway shows this year with our attention on accessories for outside outfits to help you cruise with wisdom while you find the right new pieces to support your look this season. The following accessory list shares our favorites from the trends we saw roll through this year:
If there’s one thing we saw repeated throughout the collections this fall, it was the juxtaposition of body contouring silhouettes combined with dramatic billowing fabrics. Overcoats walked down the runway that were reminiscent of Disney princess gowns and pull over dress jackets appeared to have been floating over casual classics.
We even saw bodysuits that worked well under collared fabric that doubled the width of the body to create a beautiful and dynamic accessory for an otherwise sleek outfit in transit.
This is the year of fluidity on the runway and a billowing, feminine air leads the way while we float down the street like it is our own urban runway. Think raincoats that tie around the waist and Game of Thrones inspired tie-ons; this is the season to add royal fabrics and liquid nudes for the perfect fall fashion update.
Stacked Statement Bangles
Outside outfits can be subject to the weather. A fun way to keep things loose and laid back in style for any kind of outing is to utilize statement bangles. Seen on this year’s runways in combination with each other, chunky bangles can turn an outfit from drab to fab in a pinch! Look for a combination of bracelets that compliment each other in texture and color to wear the look boldly.
You might also simply pair a few chunky acrylic cuffs with an oversized plain t-shirt for a simple fashion-forward look. No matter how you wear the bangle, this year’s trend is unisex, bold and layered!
Printful Custom Hats
This season, the runways featured many different ways to style printful custom hats. From classic, solid black berets to printed traditional caps, the outside style is laid back and breezy. These head covers are a fantastic way to compliment a good hair day or to function as a statement piece to a casual top and bottom.
Custom hats can be embellished with pins, embroidery, or jewels to enhance the print design. The most common way to wear a printful hat is to consider the featured designer logo. You can pair the colors in the hat with the same color in your footwear to create a consistent color theme that will create a casual style for running errands by day or even a sporty night out on the town.
Bold Pearl Globes
Extra large pearls were seen in several runway shows this year. Worn over any outfit, we observed a variety of ways to include jumbo pearls into your fall fashion attire. Oversized cocktail rings were worn with clutch bags and bracelets that held chunky pearls together were shown under cuffed blouses.
Worn by males or females, the classic string of pearls around the neck have become more of a space-age approach to both day casual and night life looks. The key to wearing this trend is to let it shine as a statement accessory and keep the vibe playful with anything from the little black dress to a boyfriend flannel with jeans.
Winter is coming. This fall trend supports the cool gusts of wind while they create a throwback look; neck scarves were used this year to accent mixed pattern tops and bottoms all over this fall’s fashion line up. This year’s look is particularly creative with the ways neck scarves are twisted over the head, looped around a concert tee or as a statement piece around a camel or denim waistline.
Featured on the runway a few different ways this season, the classic scarf-over-the-head look gets an update by pairing pattern with pattern in a similar fashion to stacked statement bangles. The mixture of textiles brings an eclectic vibe to otherwise structured pieces. Used to either dress up or cool down an outfit for running around, the neck scarf is a great addition to your wardrobe collection. Neck scarves worn both indoor and outdoor can complete any look this fall.

The oh-so-nineties play on fur is oh-so-very in style this season. From classic cropped jackets in fur to teddy bear carpet bags alike, make sure you collect a furry fall accessory this year to complete any outfit for a day or night outside. These furry looks make a runway statement out of your casual throw-together vibes. For a sure way to make your look turn from drab to fab, a furry something is totally necessary for your outerwear clothing this autumn.
I personally adopted a furry neck piece to turn my overcoat into something more in style this season. Plenty of choices exist off the runways from short cropped jackets to the most dramatic hooded furry overcoats. These easy-to-throw-on statement accessories will serve to keep you both warm and in high fashion.
Statement boots are a great way to put a little grunge on a floral look or to make an outfit out of casual day wear. Seen in fashion portraits for the fall season, knee length boots are constructed of patent leather or structured denim. Boots were styled with mixed patterned textiles, a common thread when it comes to using boots as accessories this season.
We liked how buckles were oversized and featured as loud ornaments that supported full on thigh high coverage like tassels. Ankle boots were paired with tights and all kinds of dresses, gowns and shorts. We hope you will join us in adding a pair of statement boots adorned with large ornaments and chunky heels to your collection this season. For a night out with a little black dress, you might even shop for a pair with steep heels to pull on like leg-warming socks.
The best way to incorporate new trends into your current wardrobe is to bring out those fabulous items that you saved for a rainy day and make them work for you. We hope you enjoyed this brief about which accessories to revive, up-cycle or collect to stay on par with the flair in fashion this fantastic fall season!
