Cole Haan Air Tali Lace Ballet FlatsSensible they may be, but there's nothing Plain Jane about these gorgeous flats. That's right - gorgeous, and that's a word rarely attributed to the basic ballet flat. With its patent-dipped toe and cool teal hue, though, this shoe is a standout. Naturally, it also possesses the ever-important Nike Air technology for extreme comfort, so it offers both immense style and practicality with every step. In five colors.

Sloan & Alex Maya Colorblock ToteThe color-blocking trend won our hearts long ago, but the seemingly endless array of multi-hued everything has a way of making it feel fresh and new every time. This handsome tote looks like it was just made for carrying on a harried morning during fall. The rich colors are striking enough on their own, but the smart pebbled leather makes them look even more commanding. With plenty of interior space, multiple pockets and a center divider, this bag is built to perform in style. In three colors.

Even with its graphic pattern, it's incredibly easy to wear - and with its slim leather-esque self-tie belt, it's just the piece to tie on over a simple tee and leggings or skinny jeans for a crisp, comfortable fall ensemble.
