Whether you are at work or hitting the town, here are some pieces you’ll wear over and over again.

Jeffrey Campbell, Asper Ankle Boot $175
It is hard to find the perfect fall boot, but Jeffrey Campbell’s Asper bootie has got us weak in the ankles. With its side cutouts, strapped matte black detailing and a low stacked heel, we couldn’t ask for anything more at our feet. Dress them up or down, this comfortable and functional bootie is a must-have for this season.

Reese Rings from $110-$135 
Toronto’s own Sherise Cromwell has handcrafted these phenomenal statement rings from rhodium and dripped them in 18k gold. The crystal quartz statement also adds an elegant twist to the chunky, bold pieces.

Komono Magnus Watch $150 
According to most women these days, size does matter… with watches, that is. Many trendsetters are abandoning their feminine timepieces for larger and bolder-sized ones. This Komono Magnus watch makes a big statement, is great to stack with bracelets, and doesn’t break the bank.

Vegan Leather Leggings $45
We know that leather is all the rage this fall, but the leather legging is definitely one of the most versatile and convenient trends of all. It has even been said that leather is the new denim. Whether you’re looking to funk up your laid-back weekend wear, add some subtle sexiness to your quintessential cocktail attire, or add a little rock ‘n roll to any ensemble, adding texture in your tights is the easiest way to enhance any YP’s outfit.

Deux Lux, Atlantis Mini Messenger Bag $115
This bag is perfect for any occasion and has just enough room for all of your essentials. The long, detachable chain strap and subtle gold-studded detailing adds a more glamorous touch to a conventional black bag. Take off the strap and it doubles as a makeup case that you can pop into your everyday tote!

Renard, Love Bracelet $65
Toronto-based designer Lisa Renard gets most of her jewelry inspiration from today’s festival trends. One of the latest fads in jewelry right now is wearing your favourite words on a bracelet, necklace and even on your rings. Wear your heart on your wrist with this 18k gold-plated “love” charm wrap bracelet by Renard.
