Autumn Accents

Up your style game this fall with these must-have accessories.

Iris Apfel, the legendary nonagenarian style icon and subject of a documentary about her flamboyant taste in accessories, puts it this way: “More is more and less is a bore.” Put that motto to the test this fall with modish musts from four neighborhood shops that run the gamut from functional to fancy.

1/  A hit in Sweden for more than 50 years, Fjällräven now has a home in the Pearl offering loads of durable outdoor gear, including their signature sturdy (and colorful) Kånken backpacks. 901 NW 10th Ave, 971-266-8063,

2, 3 + 4/  Sometimes you need colorful baubles. Trust us, Sabina’s Style stocks a gorgeous selection of them. Try a Milly multicolored clutch, ZZAN triple-strand necklace, and a pair of Quay Australia sunglasses—an ultra chic adornment on a sunny fall day. 921 NW Everett St, 503-241-4921,

5, 6/ You may already know about their One For One program, in which Toms gives away a pair of shoes to someone in need for each purchased. But did you know the hip footwear retailer carries adorable panda-embroidered slip-ons for kids to stay stylish, too? Or what about cute vegan denim shoes for men and women? 1231 W Burnside St, 503-227-2952,

7, 8/  When you think of Nau, you probably envision their slick rain jackets or hefty rollpacks, but don’t overlook their line of baby-soft alpaca knit scarves for smart layering. 304 NW 11th Ave, 503-224-9697,
