Accessorize through Autumn

1. Layering these luxe Nadine Boutros necklaces in fall colors makes any outfit look instantly cooler. Price upon request, Elizabeth Anthony.

3. Get back into a zen place this season with these stack-able Elizabeth Irvine bracelets. Each of these semi-precious gem stones represents a touchstone to soothe the soul. $27 per bracelet, at M. Penner.
