Karen Walker Sunglasses

Since launching her eponymous brand in 1988, New Zealand-based fashion designer Karen Walker has won the hearts and minds of many fashionistas with her chic sunglasses collection. Walker juxtaposes opposites — masculine and feminine, luxurious and casual, edgy and sweet — to create shades that vary from boho-retro to elegant and avant-garde. The popular Helter Skelter design, for example, comes in classic tortoiseshell for an everyday casual look, and in black and gold metal for mysterious Hollywood glamour. Walker takes a similar approach to her Perfect Day cat-eye sunglasses, Deep Freeze wayfarers, and oversize frames. In addition to sunglasses, Walker designs women’s clothing, jewelry, and — for good measure — home accessories that have earned her accolades from the likes of Vogue, InStyle, and Nylon.

Fall Trend #3: Street-Style Accessories

Fall marks a role reversal in fashion — the streets now inform what happens on the runways, not vice versa. For proof, see the knit beanies at Giles and BCBG, the no-BS booties at Saint Laurent, and the piles of arm candy absolutely everywhere. Alexandra Levin, Gilt’s PR associate, is owning the street-style-inspired look this season: “This trend is about taking risks,” she says. “Experiment with accessories — the bigger, the bolder, the better.” Follow her lead and start with a staple, like the perfect leather jacket, then pile on the accents. “I love blending the sophisticated and the casual,” Alexandra says, so get inspired by her style, then shop the sale to create your own photo op.
