You can’t get more giant or sparkly than these Emerald Cut Cocktail Rings by Kenneth Jay Lane, ($100 each at Instead of your go-to LBD how a dazzling sequined number like this Marc Jacobs Sequined zebra-stripe dress ($2,800 from Net-a-Porter).

Sutton Studio Ruffle Knit Scarf

Yes, I’m a fan of Hunter Wellie rain boots, but they seem to be growing in popularity and are showing up on well-dressed feet all round town. I am looking for a new pair of unique rain boots and found Aigle rain boots that are made in France. Mais oui! These boots are a bit more fitted and I love the riding boot style that is made completely of rubber. A lovely boot to throw on with leggings and an over-sized chunky knit sweater when I’m running out the door in a hurry. These boots are tailored and becoming every bit as fashionable as the Hunter wellies. These boots are from Aigle, which provides outdoor gear to French sportsmen, equestrians and those who visit the countryside for pleasure. Yes, these are the real deal and are perfect for urbanites looking for a waterproof and comfortable city rain boot.

Retailers including Martin + Osa and J. Crew now carry Aigle boots. On the upper left is the Aigle Start Riding Boot ($103.20 was $129.00 at Martin and Osa), a lovely plain black riding boot that is a perfect reproduction of their leather counterparts. On the model are a pair of violet Burberry rain boots (upper right, $195 at Net-a-Porter) to show you how utterly fab skinny jeans look tucked into tall rain boots. On the bottom row far left is the Aigle Women’s Bergen lace up rain boot ($207.95 at I love the lace up fronts, which makes tucking in your jeans easier and ensuring an extra snug fit. Again in the riding boot style these two-toned Aigle Jumping Rubber Boots ( bottom row middle, $199.99 at look like traditional dressage riding boots if you are looking for the Bon chic, bon genre aka French preppy style. Lastly is the two-toned Aigle Women’s Rubber Boot in Brown, ($149.00 at I love the two-toned texture of this one, a nice alternative to an all black boot, would look chic and sporty paired with tweed and a chunky cashmere sweater.

One of the more dramatic trends this fall is the fingerless glove. This trend is part of the glam rocker trend and coordinates well with black skinny jeans, moto jackets and studded accessories. But be careful not to go over board. Pair fingerless gloves with a leather vest, tee and jeans or with leggings and a long faux fur belted vest. These gloves are more for effect than for function, as they will probably not keep hands warm during the snowy season.

From Free People, frivolous and fun Sparkle Fingerless Gloves, (upper left, $38 at These fine knit 15-inch long gloves feature a multicolored metallic sparkle, ruching on the sides and cutouts along the outer side. Aqua’s fingerless knit gloves ($45 per pair at come in a wide variety of colors to accent your fall wardrobe. Long knit rib cuffs can be worn rolled up or to full length. Carolina Amato’s fuchsia Snappy Fingerless Driving Gloves (middle right, $41 at add a fun pop of color and perfectly accent an all black outfit. From Rochas a pair of Fingerless silk crochet gloves (bottom, right $545 at Net-a-Porter) gives a homespun vintage Victorian look to the fingerless glove trend. Portolano’s Nappa Fingerless Gloves in black (bottom left $150 at are more like a gauntlet than a glove because there are no holes for the fingers. These 9-inch luxe fingerless gloves are lined with silk.
