Who needs boring black when you can bring the wow factor in a Little Red Dress? It was huge news for fall at Dolce & Gabbana, Versace, and Nina Ricci, and now, the very femme number is making a splash on our own accessories buyer, Katie Watts. "It's equal parts edgy and romantic, and it will never go out of style," she says of the LRD, "but it's all about how you wear it to make it feel modern." Keep the accessories minimal—a frock like this speaks volumes, so a contrasting shoe and simple jewels are all you need—and emulate Katie's favorite red dress icon: "Audrey Hepburn in a red satin Hubert de Givenchy number in 'Funny Face'."
A slick new accessory can go a long way in punching up an otherwise ordinary outfit — and that’s certainly the case when it comes to these can’t-miss designer steals. Get your hands on print-stamped scarves, pop-of-color tech cases, metallic travel pouches, tortoiseshell sunnies, and studded leather belts.
