Get Ready for Fall in a Flash
This season, all you need are a few key pieces to instantly energize your wardrobe—and we found them, at prices ranging from steals to splurges (bet you can't tell which is which).

The Bold Shoulder Bag

The style of the season is an old favorite with a hands-free advantage

The Deal (left)
Because it converts to a clutch, this bag is even more of a deal. Peacock blue is a big fall color—seek it out to update your closet. Nine West, $39

The Middle Ground (top)
Sling on this sunny bag in supple canary leather. On the reverse side is an ingenious exterior purse, perfect for keeping phone or keys readily accessible. Coach, $398

The High End (right)
Oversize studs and bold topstitching punch up the geometric lines of this well-tailored purse. The brighter-than-navy blue is neutral enough to be useful but far from bland. Fendi, $1,620
