There’s nothing like a statement accessory to take even the simplest of outfits to new levels of chic! And the new season does not disappoint when it comes to head-turning embellishments. There’s no doubt we’ll be adding a chunky chain link necklace over our oversize sweaters, tying a silk scarf in a ribbon around our necks to tap into the bourgeois trend, and swapping our black tights for colorful iterations. But with a whole host of new fall trends coming at us faster than we can refresh our Instagram feeds, it means it’s time to say sayonara to certain passé accessory trends (we need to make some room our armoire, after all). Scroll below as we share the accessory trends we’re saying goodbye to this autumn—and, of course, the ones we’re saying hello to instead.

We've been layering our delicate pendant necklaces for some time now, and while we probably won't get rid of them entirely, it's time to add something chunky, modern, and new around our collars. Just one scroll through Instagram and you'll see that chain-link necklaces are everywhere right now—and they're sure to add a cool-girl edge to your cozy knits this fall.

Say goodbye to your '90s chokers and instead add a bougie polish to your fall outfit with the addition of a print silk scarf, preferably tied as a ribbon around your neck as seen on the Celine runway.

Logo tights had their moment at the beginning of the year, but this autumn and winter, it's all about getting your legs into colorful stockings instead. Every shade of the rainbow is fair game… From purple to marigold yellow, all the hues were seen sashaying down the runways. For the evening, opt for a glittery pair. This one is for the fashionably fearless among us!

Okay, so chunky "dad" sneakers are still going strong, but for fall, it's time to swap your sneakers for thick-soled boots instead. Everything from combat boots to chelsea boots to trekking soles to elevated Wellington boots are fair game.

There was an extended period of time where we had to be extra vigilant about what we threw into our handbag—that's because they were altogether see-through! This season we're casting our clear PVC purses aside in favor of vintage-inspired, ladylike top-handle handbags (preferably with chic metallic clasps) for a vintage-inspired touch.

Pearls of all shapes and forms made an appearance on the fall runways, from earrings to necklaces, headbands and clips. It's time to put our summer shell jewelry away and replace it with sophisticated pearl-embellished options.

The one accessory that dominated the fall runways and fall street style is undoubtedly the statement belt. It's time to forgo Western styles in favor of polished wide belts with chic detailing such as oversize metallic buckles, mock-croc fabrics, or wrap leather iterations. Cinch them at the waist over your blazer, dresses, and sweaters.

I know, I know, every woman loves a huggie hoop earring, but this season it's all about larger-than-life long statement earrings—particularly rhinestone- and crystal-embellished danglers that jazz up even the simplest white tee and jeans.

Up next, the fall basics you need in your life, according to our editors.

Clearly, Who What Wear editors love skinny jeans as much as the next person. We've broken down the best It girl–approved ways to wear them, the best brands to buy skinny jeans from, and how to wear them like celebrities.

Kate Middleton's look for her latest public appearance was decidedly more, well, nautical than what we're used to seeing her wear. But as we recently reported, she has a new stylist (and former British Vogue editor) that's helping to craft her looks as of late, and she's keeping us on our toes. The nautical-inspired look is one that instantly gave us visions of chic Parisian girls. Sure, Breton stripes and navy, red, and white may be a bit of a French-girl cliché, but honestly, sometimes style c...
