With all the buzz around fall fashion, you might’ve already found yourself going from vacay raffia to the seasonal suede handbag. While bright oranges and striking neon waves land better during summer months, it's time to make way for sultry teals and mocha browns; the key hues to stay on target for successful style this season. 

Dominating this autumn are the creatures of the wild, with gaudy and excessive textures. Leopard, cheetah and python have set the tone of what’s “in” this year, along with fleece, velvet and shearling textiles. Locally, Houston’s own Mehry Mu’s Dr. Fey Mini Velvet bag is yearning for a high-class evening, while Alexandra Knight’s Angelina clutch smoothly completes a date night look.
