Make your mark this season with the latest trends in footwear and handbags.

Look for laser-cut precision with unexpected silhouettes on everything from classic pumps to edgy boots. Statement heels will be huge, and you’ll find metallic details in everything from flats to strappy heels.

And don’t forget to add a pop of wild with animal prints.

Bags will feature leather, whether it be patent or a buttery hide. They’ll also be edged with metal detailing in the form of studs and chains.

Color blocking will be big, and monochromatic options also will be plentiful. And while black and brown reign supreme, red and camo patterns also will be in abundance.

The autumnal offerings this season are bountiful. So buy up and turn heads.

Among the stores where selections are available are Nordstrom and Macy’s.
