Native-American-Inspired Trend

Another trend emerging for fall is Native-American-inspired
detailing on items ranging from
shoes to handbags. These pieces have a hand-crafted look that makes them feel unique and one-of-a-kind. Though they are pricey, once acquired they will become staples in your wardrobe, and the excellent construction of each piece ensures that you will be able to pass them down as heirlooms. Here are the three piec
es that I am coveting for fall and beyond from

1.) Belle by Sigerson Morrison Moccasin Boot: This supple snow-colored leather boot has elegantly crafted details such as moccasin whip-stitching, a cut-out at the top, and gathering at the base. The leather molds to the foot for comfort and fits snuggly over skinny jeans.

2.) Paul & Joe Oversized Blanket Sweater: Woven from 100% cashmere, this eye-catching sweater has a fashionable drape and hood that will keep you cozy on windy fall days. The black and tan stripe is simple, modern, and chic, especially when paired with over-sized Jackie-O-style black sunglasses.

3.) Michael by Michael Kors Dakota Large Zip Top Hobo Bag: Rust-colored suede, a myriad of fringe, and sturdy gold hardware, make this luxe bag a must-have for the boho-chic urbanite. Large enough to carry all of your essentials, this utilitarian hobo will take you straight from running errands after work to dinner at Tartine in the West Village.
