Perforated Perfection
The basic black handbag gets an update with perforated leather, a key trend for accessories this fall. The Drew mini shoulder bag by Chloé, $1990 at Bergdorf Goodman, offers a peek at its peach interior through hole-punched calfskin, paired with a simple gold chain for wearing over-the-shoulder or cross-body style. For a twist on a classic black and white combo, splurge on a statement piece: Bvlgari Serpenti Spiga watch in white, available at London Jewelers, Manhasset, (516) 627-7475.

Strap Happy
Neutral doesn’t have to mean boring. In goes-with-anything taupe suede, Dolce & Gabbana Keira sandals, $995, highlight the ankle and elongate the leg with elegant crisscrossed straps and curved cutouts. Add a touch of sparkle with dramatic drop earrings by Monique Péan, $4985, crafted from smoky topaz and authentic, fossilized woolly mammoth ivory. Wouldn’t Wilma Flintstone be jealous? Both available at Barneys New York.

Vested Interest
Openwork fabric dominated the runways for fall. Embrace this fashion-forward style with the open square-embroidered vest by Akris, $1990. Its versatile shawl front and fitted silhouette allow for easy layering over a blouse by day or belted atop a dress by night.
