WHAT: Loeffler Randall lace-up ankle boots
WHY: It's official: the days of open-toe shoes are behind us, and it's time to start stocking up on boots, whether they be over-the-knee, flat, stiletto, or ankle varieties. Jessie Randall of Loeffler Randall has answered our everyday boot prayers with this comfy pair--we'll pair them with dresses and bare legs for as long as we can hold out, but we'll fight the chill in style paired with thick tights or socks.

WHAT: Stella McCartney perforated long gloves
WHY: You love Stella's thigh-high perforated boots from fall, but they're not for the faint of heart--Rihanna, knock yourself out. Our favorite vegan designer (they're faux suede, darlings) has not forgotten your digits, though--these long (past the elbow!) gloves have nearly all the sex appeal of those legging-boots, but with a little less bravery required. Merci, Stella!

WHAT: Giles & Brother Clara beaded braided bracelet
WHY: Much as we love the brass, silver, and gold staples from Philip Crangi's Giles & Brother line, we love it all the more with a little color. Enter the Clara, a jumble of chain, braid, and hooks with a row of neon yellow glass rings woven in. With the weather getting colder, and our wardrobes getting blacker, this bauble seems like the perfect way to add a little life back to our looks.
