All The Bags, Shoes, and Little Extras to Know for Fall


The cool thing about this season’s trending accessories is that none of them are trendy, per se—they’re all reimaginings of time-honored themes. And the best part? The majority aren’t just timeless, they’re seasonless, too. Below, our favorite of-the-moment variations on each classic theme.

Modern Romance

Keeping with the year’s recurring theme of romantic, Victorian-inspired looks, embroidery, lace, and brocade flourishes make these bags, shoes, and—naturally—jewelery, a welcome alternative to everyday minimalism.

Black & Gold

Gold metal on black leather is a deceptively simple, yet statement-making pairing. To get optimum drama out of the combination, opt for ornate details like buckles, chains, and Deco-inspired silhouettes.

Gentleman’s Choice

Here, the prevailing take on the endlessly chic borrowed-from-the-boys look is more English-countryside-estate than sneakers-and-suiting. Loafers, creepers, everlasting timepieces, and reworked satchel bags make the style/function mark easy to hit.

Elevated Hippie

‘60s-inspired vibes—earth tones, rich leather and suede, tassels and fringe—are so quintessentially bohemian, though these elevated interpretations bring the hippie-chic spirit into the 21st century.


Shearling is about as toasty as it gets without going full-puffer, which is why it’s usually seen lining coats or winter boots. That said, the coziness lends itself just as well to cold-weather accessories like scarves and hats—even clutches benefit from the added burst of texture.


From studs and jagged edges to heavy-duty platform boots, there are endless ways in which designers are interpreting historically punk elements season after season.


Velvet has long since crossed over from the indoors-only smoking slipper to everything from evening bags to going-out heels—and less-expected applications, like sunglasses.
