The Must-Have Accessories of Fall 2013, According to the Editors-------
Each season, Style.com’s market director, Marina Larroudé, combs through every collection to find the most covetable accoutrements. In our Fall 2013 Accessories Index, she highlights the best and biggest trends—from funny furs and demure pearls to spikes, studs, and combat boots. We couldn’t help but pick our own favorites, so below, the Style.com editors reveal what we’ll be craving come fall.
“It’s a long process to work on the Accessories Index. We feature almost 200 brands and around 5,000 images. Every season, I like to discover new brands to add to our list. It’s unfair to ask me for a favorite accessory, but I would be happy to have Rochas’ earrings, any Prada shoe, or any Victoria Beckham day bag.” —Marina Larroudé, market director
“I love the schoolmarm-meets-sexpot look of this Narciso Rodriguez pump.” —Nicole Phelps, executive editor
“In my imagination, I’m that chic kind of girl who cabs to and from appointments in a pair of single-sole Manolos. In reality, I’m subway-ing everywhere and need shoes I can really stomp around in. These lug-soled Stella McCartney beauties are the footwear equivalent of all-terrain vehicles, placing them at the top of my must-have list for fall.” —Brittany Adams, associate fashion editor
“I’m a sucker for irreverent accessories, and these Charlotte Olympia platforms have it all—they’re saucy, silly, and sweet. Who needs Prince Charming when you can wear a happy ending on your heel? —Katharine K. Zarrella, associate news editor
“For me, it’s all about those Proenza Schouler clutches—their subtlety, elegance, and textural illusion.” —Eve Marie Blazo, editorial coordinator
“As traditional as they are vampy, Altuzarra’s thigh-high black boots are the perfect combination of Mary Jane and femme fatale. I lust for them for fall.” —Rachel Walgrove, social media editor
