Heads Up
The pièce de résistance of any perfectly put together fall ensemble is great headwear. Make a statement with Eric Javits taupe fox fur-banded topper, Samantha, $425. Feeling more nostalgic? Pull on Kate, $375, a winter white cloche. Both styles available at

Snake Charmer
Subtle tones combined with python-embossed leather make for a must-have fall accessory. The taupe Hayden Satchel is the perfect grab-and-go no matter what the occasion. The Julia Shopper in burgundy gives the extra space required for long days spent on the run. Both styles designed by and available at GiGi New York, Southampton.

Hand Out
Although bone-chilling winter winds are not yet upon us, their arrival is close—cool fall nights are a taste of what’s to come. Stylish digits go, well, hand-in-hand with lower temps. Red leather elbow-length gloves, $165. Black leather quilted driving gloves, $135. Leopard print with black leather palm gloves, $165. All available at Saks Fifth Avenue, Walt Whitman.

From top to bottom: Gucci stud monkstrap bootie, $1,150. Valentino Rockstud, $945. Yves Saint Laurent Janis, $945. Manolo Blahnik Belta, $925. All available at Saks Fifth Avenue, Walt Whitman Mall.
