Fur-Lined Sneakers? The Accessories You’ll Covet This Fall

Our favorite, unexpected pieces that defined New York Fashion Week Fall 2016.

With the New York women’s collections wrapped and the fashion flock jetting off to London for round two of the fall 2016 season, it’s time to take stock, especially of the imaginative, must-have accent pieces that have us wishing it were fall already. With any luck, this season’s calendar-upending “buy now, wear now” experiments will turn into a full-on trend very soon. (Instead of waiting six months, consumers can purchase products seen on the runway immediately.)

As for full-show rundowns and bizarre pop-star spectacles (see Kanye West vs. Rihanna), more on that later.


Fitbit x Public School

Fitbit + Public School

This collaboration between Public School, one of fashion’s “it” brands, and Fitbit, one of wearable tech’s market leaders, further cements the athleisure movement for luxury streetwear. Although only two wearable concepts were shown on the runway, the full collection will include five style options such as sports bands and high-end bracelets on metal bands.

J.Crew Sunglasses

J.Crew Sunglasses

In January the retail giant finally launched its own in-house line of sunglasses, available in five awesome shapes, from a subtle cat eye to a versatile aviator. At the fall presentation, we caught a glimpse of next season’s offerings, which (to the surprise of no one) matched J.Crew’s quirky spin on style, complete with little unexpected details that the brand is known for, like hidden contrasting patterns and textures.

All eyes were on Phillip Lim’s crumpled-velvet ankle boots in warm, autumnal, and metallic hues. They were equal parts tough and ladylike.

Victoria Beckham Buckled Shoes

Flats finally get the Victoria Beckham treatment. Her riff on a pair of patent leather buckled loafers was just the right amount of pseudo-masculine and darling.
