The always chic Frances Esquenazi, vice president and general manager of Neiman Marcus Bal Harbour, scoured her fall inventory to bring us the top five accessories of the season. What would she pair with these glitzy old-Hollywood accessories? "The fall trends are very exciting—one of my favorites is the pantsuit. Just add a stylish lace top and you're ready for the boardroom, lunch with your girlfriends or a holiday party," she says.
An over-the-knee boot: Sergio Rossi's four-inch black sequin boots ($1,850) combine the over-the-knee trend with sexy sequins. Pair them with skinny jeans, a simple blazer and a structured necklace.
A leopard shoe: Christian Louboutin's fur trimmed leopard mules ($1,895) practically scream 50's pinup girl. Wear them with a snug-fitting LBD or tailored skirt suit.
A structured bag: Every woman needs a classic hold-all bag that can fit files for a business meeting or magazines and a travel pillow for a plane ride. Fendi's python peekaboo bag ($5,360) is as chic and multipurpose as handbags come.
A power necklace: Vera Wang's bold mixed-media pearl medallion necklace ($795) is a little bit ladylike and a little bit heavy metal. Wear it with a boat neck sheath dress and simple platform heels.
A feathered bag: Marchesa's brilliant red feather clutch ($1695) is a special occasion accessory. Save this one for a red-carpet affair.
