Mixed-print scarf. For under $10 you can add a print to almost any of your outfits.
Short blazer. Wear a bright color to pick up on fall's color trends. It's simple "architectural" cut can be androgynous with a buttondown shirt, black pant boots and hat or mix in some silk, knitwear, and leather to compliment the texture craze.
Hand-held handbag. The latest accessory trend for the fall 2011 season. Buying a colorful one will not only brighten up your outfits, but also bring it from yesterday into today’s fashion world.

Need help dressing for a fall date? blujay's advice is universal.
The answer is simple. Whatever you feel most comfortable or confident in, that's what you should wear for a date. If you love to rock a great pair of jeans, wear them. If you're a girly girl, go full tilt in a floral dress with a cozy cardigan. If you're an edgy chick, take him to the edge with you. If you feel comfortable, your date will too. And he's on a date with you, right? So he must like you just the way you are. Here are a few suggestions to help along. All of the pieces I use are generally under $100, so you won't be breaking the bank.
Black-tie wedding on your calendar this fall? thefunkyfashionista has some styling tips for you.
Most people used to think black-tie events called for conservative, elegant dresses. It does, but that doesn't mean you can't spice up your look and modernize it. Go with a longer dress, just because it's more formal. If you want to show some skin without looking inappropriate, you might want to try a dress with a sheer skirt like the Alexander McQueen strapless velvet gown. Some cool colors to try out would of course be black, as well as, navy, emerald green, ruby red, plum, purples, teal, and a pretty beige. Stay away from white or ivory, these colors should be left alone to the bride! Try dressing up your look with a statement necklace, sparkly stud earrings, and a good clutch.
