Fall Accessories for any College Fashionista!

  1. Booties: The highly popular bootie is back this Fall!  The bootie is one shoe trend that most likely won’t go out of style any time soon, which is why designers and clothing companies are reinventing it with different styles and materials.  For fall, buy a bootie in a hot jewel toned faux suede, with metallic or fringe accents or a cool embellished fabric.  Mix up the style of heel, go flat, wedge or stiletto, the choice is yours!  Here are some of my favorite choices for the girl on a budget this season:

This suedette wedge bootie can be found in black or brown at our favorite discount store, Forever 21.  $27.80

These flat, mid-calf booties have a little bit of edge to them with a studded outline around the outside of the boot.  They are great for casual nights out or some leggings and a white T!  They can be found online at GoJane.  $30.80

2. Statement Necklaces: When the Fall 2011 runways debuted last year one thing that stood out was many designers’ use of bold necklaces to capture one’s eye to the neck.  Mixed metals, colors and styles make the possibilities of adding this fun accessary to your everyday look endless.  Here are some that caught my eye:
