Accessorizing for Fall in Calgary

Calgary in the fall can be a bit temperamental: one day, it’s single digit highs, and the next, it’s 25+ and patio weather. A drop of more than 10 degrees in a single day is not unusual. It’s not quite time to switch to full on cold weather wardrobe, but chilly mornings and evenings mean that your summer outfits just aren’t quite right. Other than throwing on a jacket and scarf, accessories are a great way to update your summer frocks that aren’t quite ready to be retired. Here are some of our favourite boutiques in Calgary for finding one-of-a-kind accessories that will allow you to stretch your wardrobe into fall:
