Last week, we gave you four trends to shake-up your fall wardrobe and today, we’re bringing you the must-have pieces that will completely overhaul your look. From jewellery as small as a panther ring to a bold statement look like a printed skirt suit, these pieces will make your closet on trend as we round the corner and head into winter. We’ve taken inspiration from the fall runways like Zac Posen’s Asian-inspired collection with silk brocade shoes and clutches by Jason Wu and decided that wearing pastels and whites in the winter is no longer a fashion no-no as seen on Chloe’s fall runway. These are the style MVPs of fall 2012 worth investing in and will help you score major style points all season long.

Luxe list: Our fashion market editor shares her 10 most desired fall indulgences


Luxe list

As evidenced in her selects from the October 2012 issue, our fashion market editor Caitlan Moneta loves a fancy frill. Here she describes her picks: “My style veers in a clean, classic direction, but when the mercury dips, I can’t help but want to pepper in feminine details like fur trim, delicate lace and dainty heels. Somehow it just feels right.”

The list: Fiery accents set classic black-and-white houndstooth ablaze


The list: Fiery accents set classic black-and-white houndstooth ablaze

See our editor’s houndstooth picks »

Black and white houndstooth is by no means a new trend in fashion—it gained mainstream popularity in the 1930s and has been modified many times over. For Fall 2012 designers have once again put their spin on the classic look and there are many houndstooth pieces that can be kicked up by simply adding red and gold accents.

Maisonette 1977’s form-fitting dress is not full-on houndstooth, but rather gives a hint of the pattern on the top and bottom in case you’re too nervous to go for the whole nine yards. However, for full-on houndstooth try the popular pattern on pants (like this pair by Melanie Lyne) or on a Jacob skirt. If you’re wearing houndstooth on the bottom, be sure to not do the same on top—break it up with a bold colour, like a red blouse from Equipment.

You can also add pops of colour with the accessories you choose to accent with. Red and black heels by Aquazzura will keep you completely on trend, or go small with jewellery. A red and gold ring by Kate Spade or some gold bracelets from Pandora will add just the right amount of colour, turning a classic outfit into something fiery and fresh.

All the cool girls from the best 1980s and 1990s movies wore suits. In Heathers it was a colour-coded way of life, and for Cher Horowitz, the power suit was a staple in her amazing technologically advanced closet. Everyone, and we mean everyone, knows her classic yellow plaid mini-skirt blazer combo.

Enter Fall 2012.

Most wanted beauty: Fun Dip for your nails, dry shampoo that doesn’t require a drop cloth, lipstick innovations and more


Most wanted beauty

This month we’re coveting 10 products that are sure to please both your skin and your senses on even the most dreary fall day. Lancôme brings us a game-changing brightening serum—though the real beauty is in its unique stainless-steel applicator. Equally innovative is Estée Lauder’s latest lipstick that adds a boost to any other colour you may fancy. Also in the “amazing additions” category is Avon’s foray into nail art: adding glitter to any manicure is as easy as eating a Fun Dip. If it’s rest and relaxation you seek, may we suggest a sand scrub loaded with white and black vocanic grains? And, best of all, we feature two products that are sure to cut minutes—or even hours!—off your morning beauty routine. One is the easiest way to master the look of thick, cat-eye liner and the other is the latest innovation in dry shampoo from Shu Uemura.
