Oversized and bejeweled, fall's new neckpieces are distinct, statement-making accessories we must own now. They add a touch of unexpected glamour to a simple white tee shirt and will instantly refresh last season's favorite cocktail dress. Our picks for best of the bunch? Tory Burch's Egyptian-inspired collar, Ranjana Khan's beaded bibs, Yves Saint Laurent's jet crystals, and Lizzie Fortunato's asymmetrical breastplate.
What was once reserved for pretty women who walked the streets has now made its way to the catwalks and, potentially, on to your feet. I'm talking about the over-the-knee or thigh-high boot. Worn with a short dress or even shorts, a hint of leg is all you need to show some sex appeal. We're loving the perforation of the Stella McCartney pair, but the Miu Mius and Choos are just as cute.
Every fashion insider fell in love with Isabel Marant's Fall 2009 collection — and why wouldn't they? It was the perfect combination of pretty and tough, sexy and sophisticated, urban and chic. One of the strongest looks was this outfit, which consisted of a lot of gray and a hint of fur. Talk about funky and fabulous. Definitely a look we love.
Any Eve can appreciate that adding a subtle snake motif to an outfit can add a punch of pizzazz. Take the Thomas Wylde jacket, for instance; it's both pretty and under the radar. But, if you're looking for something a little more overt, try the Topshop or Sonia Rykiel options — both of which are sizzling.
Kris Van Assche's Fall collection is not only sexy, but it's also wearable. In hues of mostly black, blue, and white, you'll find the items easy to pair together or wear as separates. We're digging the silk boxer shorts — the ultimate tough, yet pretty piece.
Sometimes all you need for a night on the town is a hint of gold to make your outfit pop. Whether it's a skirt, top, or a dress, each of these pieces has a shimmer that'll sparkle. Try one, try all, but make sure the focus is on the gold glamour.
You don't have to be the boy who never grows up to enjoy this trend; in fact, this style is for girls of all ages. While the collar keeps you covered, the addition of a cap sleeve, a sheer neckline, or some sultry sequins adds a hint of sexiness. Try the trend in black with these pieces.
Take the sometimes masculine cardigan silhouette and add a dash of chiffon to give it a feminine kick. Case in point, these three gray cardigans, which are the perfect transitional pieces to take you from Summer to Fall in style. Grandpa cardigan be gone.
Diamonds are a girl's best friend, but if you want to stand out this Fall, throw on some quirky baubles. Skulls, utensils, spikes, and bubbles are just some ways to show the world that you have fun with fashion. The cheekier the better!
Ruching is no longer reserved for clothing. Nay. The sewing technique — wherein fabric is gathered in a repeat pattern — has made its way onto shoes. Here are three ruched boots to make your feet more interesting this Fall.
