Italian designers are living la dolce vita for fall, and it’s all about dressing up and looking sexy. So forget spring’s ethnic jewelry and flat sandals. Now, they’re offering a slew of super-glam accessories that are perfect for both sexy rockers and sophisticated glamour babes.

In the shoe department, it’s the higher the better. Sky-high boots in crocodile leather, bare lace-up sandals and killer stiletto pumps that wrap seductively up the leg are some enticing examples. For a softer but equally feminine look, the round-toed shoe is back. Slightly reminiscent of the Forties, these updated versions are anything but retro. Mary Jane and knee-boot styles are offered in bright colors, metallic disco hues or with studs for a racier look.

On the handbag front, it’s all about extremes. Designers are making a statement with extra-large shapes and over-the-top luxury. Some stunners include elongated, emerald green or fuchsia satin clutches, big styles in exotic skins and intricate weaves and an ultraluxe crocodile bag with a wooden handle.

Scarves, hats and belts abound. Colorful, floor-length striped scarves, fur shawls, fedoras, woven skull caps and obi belts add just the right dash of charm and sophistication to fall’s new looks.
