Something to Love: 3 Standout Fall Accessories
Pleasing pairings for years-old cashmere and your favorite boots.
Here’s a little Monday treat: new accessories that underline autumn’s arrival! Cool-weather wardrobes are best when artfully assembled over many seasons — think a mix of years-old cashmere, well-trod boots, and a lovingly chosen accessory that makes the whole thing an outfit. Three things to consider in that vein today.
Khaite x Oliver Peoples 1998C cat-eye sunglasses in matte black: a little 90’s RDJ, a little Prada, lightweight and a killer way to elevate your favorite grey sweater. These give ferocity and intention to those no-makeup, lazy bun days.
Dorsey’s Spencer lab-grown emerald ring: as with everything Dorsey, it looks plucked from your Grandmother’s jewelry box (or a really great estate sale). Wear with… well, everything. Also, a great snag to tuck away for a special someone’s holiday gift. A little education on lab-grown stones, if you need an introduction or refresh: labs engineer conditions to mimic the way stones naturally develop in the earth. They have the exact same physical and chemical properties as mined stones, but they’re far more sustainable because no mining = less environmental harm. Because they’re not a finite resource when grown this way, they’re more affordable — but the quality remains the same. So yes, it’s a real emerald!
Red Sabah Felli’s: I’ve written exhaustively about the power of adding a tiny bit of red to your wardrobe, but hear me out once more: these flats are a painless way to do it. If you struggle with styling, a red shoe should be a no-brainer because they can take any ensemble composed of fall neutrals like black or brown and punch it up in seconds. Sabah’s distinct leather slippers are chic, sensibly priced, and comfortable — and they look even better as you break them in. It’s the trademark Sabah patina! I was gifted a pair after the brand fell off my radar for many years, and putting them on was like reuniting with an old friend.
