Go big or go home, yelled the runways with the plethora of long, glistening, and uniquely shaped earrings that sashayed down the runway. Pair your epic earrings with a simple black dress for the fall season ahead.

Gloves

Fall and winter are all about the gloves—preferably ones that extend to the elbow and come in all colors of the rainbow. They may not be iPhone-friendly, but they're impeccably chic.

Animal-Print Shoes

Your motto for the new season is animal-print everything! From bags to dresses and shoes, the pattern comes in all colors and textures for fall. We're particularly partial on leopard-print shoes. The easiest way to jazz up a jeans-and-tee combo.

Hands-Free Bags

Neck bags and belt bags took center stage down the runways for fall. And we're absolutely on board with the hands-free and carefree look.

Mismatched Earrings

If there's one way to make a statement with your jewelry, it's with mismatched, asymmetric, or a single dangling earring. Cool and contemporary, that is sure to add interest to your outfit.

From puffer-style scarves to silky print kerchiefs, scarves are not only practical in the colder months, but they also make for a statement bold look. Tie them around your neck, head, bag straps, and ankles for a modern look.

While we saw plenty of adorned ear action on the runway, we saw wrists basked in sculptural works of art too. Whether you go for a chic and minimalist design or cuffs with motifs and intricate designs, a standout bracelet should most definitely be on your wish list for fall.
