FALL MUST-HAVES (AT EVERY PRICE)

SHOES

High-rise boots in slinky stretch or leather are essential companions to new miniskirts. Sexy stilettos glam up pants and pencil skirts. Technicolor flats jazz up just about anything.

JEWELRY

Nothing makes a statement like a glittery brooch worn unexpectedly in the hair or at the waist. For daytime, pearls lose their innocence on heavy metal chains. And cuffs of studded Lucite give arms an edge, day or night.
