The Trend: Bold-colored patent leather in InStyle.

They Say: "You'll take a shine to fall's patent leather accessories in vivid colors. Gloss meets glamour."

How to Wear It: Use bright patents to add some spice to basic black and gray this fall. A punchy handbag, like Furla's lime-green 'Saint Tropez' shopper ($201 @ Bluefly) or poppy boots, like Jessica Simpson's inky blue 'Thalia' Booties ($119 @ Nordstrom) are the unexpected shots of life you needs to stand out in a sea of dark trenches. Go easy on the bright, shiny pieces, though — make them your statement pieces rather than the basis of your wardrobe —or, subtler still, look for tailored pieces with patent trim — and you'll pack a punch without looking too overdone.

Our Picks: Boutique 9's Darra berry-and-cream Peep Toe Mary Jane ($125 @ Endless.com) are a sweet treat, as is Vivienne Westwood's Red Label bowler bag in a juicy raspberry hue that looks great with neutrals ($915 @ Net-a-Porter). Jennifer Ouellette's extra wide kelly green headband ($95 @ Barneys New York) tames your windblown hair with glossy style. And, if you're really bold, Theory's short patent leather trench in look-at-me red ($885 @ Intermix) will certainly turn a few heads and draw a few envious glances.
