I suppose it’s inevitable. Being an Autumnophile, une femme has developed a sentimental fondness for kitschy fall themes. I’m irrationally charmed by accessories featuring pumpkins, colorful fall foliage, oak leaves and especially acorns.
But tread carefully, mes petites. When it comes to acorn accessories (or anything with a seasonal theme), there’s not a lot of real estate between “kitsch” and “nauseatingly hokey.” I’ve found a few pieces that can claim residence on the right side of the tracks, or at least can be worn with a bit of insouciant irony.Acorn earrings with black freshwater pearl, $49.
Wood acorn charm bracelet, J.Crew $85.
