Fall Essentials

Not too long ago (or so we'd like to think), fall meant a back-to-school shopping spree. But nowadays, instead of stocking up on binders, notebooks, and pencil cases, we're saving up for far more stylish items on our list, all inspired by the F/W 12 runways! From a luxe double-breasted peacoat to a standout necklace, check out the WWW Picks that made the grade this season.Get The Look
1. Elizabeth and James Jackson Peacoat ($695) in Ivory
When it comes to outerwear, pick a double-breasted peacoat that's both luxe and flattering, like Elizabeth and James' fur-trimmed jacket. Create a sleek work ensemble by teaming it with a turtleneck and pencil skirt.

2. Marc by Marc Jacobs Thunder Travel Leather Satchel ($528)
It's official: the doctor is in! A slouchy purse may have been the "it" bag for spring and summer, but fall's all about structure. While we love the glossy sheen of Prada's Satin Embellished Bag ($3900), Marc by Marc Jacobs' textured leather version does the trick too. This doctor's bag even comes in the hottest colour of the season, a rich bordeaux.

3. Maje Romane Black Dress ($425)
After we spotted Stella McCartney's Embroidered Viscose Cady Dress ($3770) on the runway, we were inspired to find another take on the season's new dress silhouette--long sleeves and a fluted hem. Maje's silky black number is a versatile option: while a rounded collar gives it polish, the fluted hem is on-point for fall and flirty enough to take the dress to cocktail hour.

4. Lancome L'Absolu Nu Replenishing and Enhancing Lip Colour ($29.50) in Prune Mantille
Lancome's wine-coloured lipstick possesses a unique ingredient, mother-of-pearl, that gives the formula a sparkly, light-boosting effect!

5. Juicy Couture Breast Plate Necklace ($118)
When it comes to accessories this season, go for something memorable! Juicy Couture's studded resin plate necklace is a stylish companion to solid-coloured shirts that need a little more pizzazz.

6. Mulberry Tiger-Intarsia Angora-Blend Sweater ($670)
Cosy sweaters are one of our favourite fall must-buys. Altuzarra's Naples Horse Dolman Sweater ($895) is a literal interpretation of the season's equestrian-inspired trend, but if your animal instincts are of the feline variety, try Mulberry's quirky twin tiger rendition! It's the kind of off-duty jumper we'd wear with had-'em-forever jeans and ballet flats.

7. Guess by Marciano The Skinny Leatherette Jean No. 68 ($178) in Red Leather Coating
Oxblood leather was all over the F/W 12 runways; we particularly loved how Isabel Marant's cropped skinnies punched up a classic black coat and lacy top. If you want to get the look of leather without breaking the bank, Guess by Marciano's jeans are your best bet. Finished in a slick leather-like coating, they work well for a GNO paired with a white t-shirt and chunky jewellery.

8. Pierre Hardy Black and White Watersnake Lace-Up Booties ($1325, 646.449.0070)
Continue last season's athletic-inspired trend with Pierre Hardy's lace-up high heels. Wear them with slim, cropped pants to show off the snake print and sporty detail.--Tiffany Tse
