As temps cool, we look to warmer sweaters, jackets, coats -- and handbags need to "warm up," too. Check out the autumnal offerings of Tignanello (that's pronounced "teen-ya-NELL-oh," for all you non-Italians out there), including suede crossbodies, quilted and pebbled leather bags with braid or fringe details, or this paisley canvas tote (just $49.50) in rich shades of brick, Cognac and indigo; at qvc.com, or look for the line at Macy's stores, zappos.com and amazon.com.
Hunter branches out
Forget the boots -- well . . . don't forget them, but think above the knee for a moment. Seems Hunter Boot, the Brit brand known for those colorful rainproof wellies, is now producing outerwear for men, women and kids. The line is smart (drawstring cinches, detachable hoods, top- and side-entry pockets) and stylish (Toscana shearling trim), priced $125 and up; at Bloomingdale's, Huntington Station, Garden City; Saks Fifth Avenue, Huntington Station; and hunter-boot.com.
