It’s hard to choose just one, but after careful deliberation and many long, sleepless nights clicking through the incredible Fall 2014 Accessories Index, Style.com’s editorial team has made their selections for the items they won’t be able to live without. (FULL DISCLOSURE: It’s actually impossible to settle on just one, so some editors were forced to pick randomly from their list of faves.) Here now is the official list of Editors’ Picks (for today, anyway).
Kristin Anderson, Assistant Editor of Special Projects
Christopher Kane bag
“I’m a big believer in Occam’s razor where wardrobe matters are concerned: The simplest (chicest) solution is the best.”
Brittany Adams, Associate Fashion Editor
Anya Hindmarch Ebury bag
“Like the catchy Pharrell song I can’t get out of my head, this grown-up Anya Hindmarch satchel with a playful twist will remind me to keep smiling. I’ll justify the price tag by considering it a long-term investment in my happiness.”
Amber Kallor, Senior Beauty Editor
Dries Van Noten shoes
“For the days I need to put myself up in the big-girl shoes, these silver stunners from Dries Van Noten would do the job. I fell in love backstage in Paris and have experienced separation anxiety ever since.”
Nicole Phelps, Executive Editor
Narciso Rodriguez heels
“I’ve mostly written off heels as high as these—they’re a hard look to pull off at kindergarten drop-off. But for Narciso Rodriguez, I’d make an exception.”
Jessica Teves, Site Director
Saint Laurent hat
“In my head, I’m the global ambassador for the color camel (insert crazy-lady reference here), so this wide-brimmed, felt fedora feels absolutely necessary and in total keeping with my neutral-hued-color mantra. Must. Have. Now.”
Maya Singer, Contributing Special Projects Editor
Repossi black squiggle ring
“My fingers are drowning in rings. But you know what I don’t have? This cool black squiggly one from Repossi that I (and a lot of other editors) have been eyeing since Paris. Guess I just need another finger.”
Marina Larroudé, Market Director
Saint Laurent earrings
“My jewelry choice of the season is earrings. You can’t have too many, but you should wear just one, à la Céline.”

Style.com’s market director has a busier fashion week than most. In addition to taking in the shows, hitting the parties, and even occasionally eating and sleeping, Marina Larroudé is also tasked with snapping up every accessory worth its cavallo for Style.com’s Accessories Index. More than 5,000 of the Spring 2013 bags, shoes, and jewels went live today on Style.com, along with Marina’s recap of the top accessory trends. Read it and weep (with joy, and incipient credit-card debt). Click here to visit the complete index.
Narrowing down more than 5,000 bags, shoes, and jewels—no easy feat. But then, it is our job. In the midst of compiling our Fall 2011 Accessories Index, we’ve all come across a few favorites we’re saving up for come September. Below, Style.com’s editors on the pieces they can’t wait to get their hands on.
“I’ve been on the lookout for a pair of light brown boots for a while. Phillip Lim’s will look great with all of my denim flares, and they have the added attraction of a friendly price point too.” —Nicole Phelps, executive editor
“Wilfredo Rosado is my favorite new designer to watch. After years working with Mr. Armani, he’s launching a fine jewelry collection this fall; if you noticed Gwyneth Paltrow’s pink feather earrings at the Grammys this year, you’ve already seen his unique pieces in action. This pendant in one of my favorites—you have to look at it twice to notice that it’s not just your old classic cameo.” —Marina Larroude, senior market editor
“The shape of this Chloé bag reminds me of Coach’s old bucket bags—which I still stalk on eBay to this day. The patchwork of exotic skins also seems like it would go with every piece of outerwear I own, including my leopard swing coat—no small feat.” —Celia Ellenberg, senior beauty editor
“Let’s just say I am seriously considering a weekend job so I can kick it in these forest green/fuchsia Kirkwood pumps come Fall.” —Brittany Adams, associate fashion editor
Our Fall Accessory Report, of course. For our biannual guide, senior market editor Marina Larroude picked the trends of the season, from the envelope clutch to the new loafer to anything and everything with a sprinkling of feathers and fur. Her complete picks are live here. And if that’s not enough bags, shoes, and jewelry for the accessory obsessives out there, you can glut yourself on the Fall ’11 Accessories Index, our comprehensive guide to almost 5,000 (!) of the seasons’ best. Happy browsing.
