Fall's Top 5 Accessories
2015 is the year of effortless layers
Sure, anyone can wear a scarf.
But the woman who miraculously turns her scarf into a twisted work of art? That’s the woman who understands the difference between fashion and style.
Here to help you discover that for yourself is our fall accessories guide with Nordstrom. We’ve rounded up the season’s top five pieces and the key techniques you’ll need for pulling them off. Take a look.
The Layered Neck
This is surely the year of the dainty necklace. While wearing just one is lovely, nothing showcases your styling abilities quite like a layered look. To do it well, choose a few favorites in varying lengths and try to keep the color palette fairly consistent to make the collection seem effortless.

The Mini Bag
While we’d never tell you to completely ditch your tote, there is something to be said for paring down. That’s where the mini bag comes into play. The cutest accessory for fall, this tiny handbag can be worn as a crossbody or a top-handle bag--whichever suits your fancy.

The Layered Wrist
Don?t be afraid to layer it all on. Nothing looks cooler than a few carefully chosen cuffs mixed ever so naturally with your everyday watch. Unlike the layered neck, the wrist calls for bracelets of varying styles and metals to accompany your timepiece. Just be sure your watch is bigger than everything else.

The Ear Jacket
Diane Kruger: member of Vanity Fair's best-dressed list since 2010 and the newest fan of ear jackets. The trendy earrings--made up of simple studs with elaborate connector pieces that dangle from the earlobes--have an edgy vibe but are still decidedly feminine. Wear yours with anything from jeans and a T-shirt to a floor-length cocktail gown, like DK.
The Layered Leg
Wearing sleek tights or leggings with your trusty booties is a juxtaposition you know and love. This season, add an unexpected third layer with a pair of scrunched kneesocks. These knit numbers not only bring more attention to your fabulous boots but also keep your toes a little toastier.
