Though we’re not quite ready to delve into oversized knits or cashmere coats yet, it’s hard to resist the fabulous fall fashions showing up in our favorite shops. Lucky for us, there are plenty of covetable accessories to pair with summer staples to satisfy our craving for fall dressing. Be a style crusader in the season’s statement shoe (high and mighty) or bag (big and bold). Textured, feathered, and frilled, the heel shows no sign of shrinking, and platforms are a must. Skin is in for handbags, such as this one from Francesco Biasia’s BIASIA Gold Label line. The special-edition bags are all Italian crafted, using top-notch materials, and are available in Dallas only at Via Pelle.
