DIY Your 5 Must-Have Accessories for Fall 2015

DIY-ers get your craft supplies ready. It’s time to update our fashion for fall 2015. Let’s do this.

Turtleneck Choker Dickie

First on our list is the turtleneck choker dickie. This was seen sported by models from Altuzarra, Misha Nonoo, Julien MacDonald, and Emilio Pucci, among others. It’s definitely a wearable trend and very easy to do.

Blogger Maegan Tintari replicated the look by taking an old pair of leggings (or tights) and scissors. Basically, you’ll want to measure your neck (circumference) and pick a spot in the leggings that roughly fits that. Depending on how tight your leggings are, the cut can be at the bottom or somewhere in the thigh area. Then, cut a band about 4-6 inches wide. Tada! You have your very own turtleneck choker dickie.

How easy was that?

Skinny Scarf

Another fall 2015 must-have accessory is the skinny scarf, which can be worn with everything, according to Elle. It was worn by models from labels such as Chloe, Marc Jacobs, and Haider Ackermann.

If you only get hold of one accessory for fall, this should be it. The skinny scarf can transition very easily between all occasions. It looks good with a casual sweater dress or a gown.

This tutorial takes inspiration from Prada’s silk scarf. Check it out.

Pussy Bow

The pussy bow is another must-have accessory for fall 2015. It was spotted on the catwalk in designs from labels such as Rachel Zoe, Chanel, and Gucci to name a few.

It adds a hint of femininity to your work wardrobe. Just add it to a basic blouse and off you go to the office.

Statement Earrings

Fall is also the time to bring the bling back. We’re talking about statement earrings. They are the “chicest way to accessorize this season,” so says Glamour.

You can go for ones that are glittering or ones that brush the shoulder (or a pair that covers the earrings). You can even go mismatched or go for a single earring for maximum impact.

Another must-have accessory for fall 2015 is all about shine. It’s the brooch. Prada, Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, Louis Vuitton, and Balenciaga added a touch of elegance to their ensembles with this little detail.

You can add sparkle to your fall attire, too. Just follow the steps on how to create a brooch using needle and thread here or this no-sew version. Take your pick.
