Woman carrying a jewel-tone handbag

Opt for a satchel in the rich tones of gemstones instead of one in seen-it black or brown. Deep purple is especially complementary with autumnal shades, as is a lush green.

To buy: Cole Haan tote in patent leather and suede, $495, Shin Choi top. Diane von Furstenberg skirt. Kara Ross necklace. M.C.L Design bracelet.
