    By the time October rolls around, we're completely feelin' fall — pumpkin scones in the oven, mini gourds on display, ankle boots in heavy rotation.

But, in the right form and fit, the centuries-old fabric looks genuinely fresh for fall '12. We vetted the web for modern takes on the old-school staple, so you can accessorize in style without looking antiquated. (Save that for your Downton Abbey-inspired Halloween costume.)
