We've still got a little summertime left before Labor Day, but who cares? We're already in full fall-fashion mode.
That means it's time to put away those neon lip colors in favor of a darker (and fittingly more dramatic) hues. Then, there's the matter of finding a chic crossbody bag that can bring us up to speed with the latest fall trends. And with the onset of autumn comes the need to restock on a few basic items, which we did when this punchy travel bag and sleek playsuit came into our lives.

Mary Kay True Dimensions Lipstick in Berry a la Mode, $18
"I was a little apprehensive about trying such a bold, plummy lip color, but turns out that any hesitation was unnecessary. The shade is rich but not overpowering, the texture creamy, the purple a perfectly warm hue featuring a hint of Bordeaux for fall. I'm smitten."—Nicole Adlman, Style Writer
Rebecca Minkoff Suede Finn Crossbody, $195
"I never (ever) thought I'd rock a fringe bag but Rebecca Minkoff changed my mind with this simple yet stunning crossbody, which is definitely going to be my fall staple. Never say never, right?"—Cinya Burton, Style Senior Editor
Banana Republic "Smart Cookie" Pouch, $28
"Six days to NYFW–yes we're counting. Forget the holidays, this is the most wonderful time of the year! Three weeks on the road requires a few survival skills though, and surrounding yourself with adorable travel accessories is high up on the list. Banana Republic's "Smart Cookie" travel purse is completely adorable and very affordable, and whenever I'm feeling jet lagged and wiped out it will totally motivate me too!"—Jacqueline Lee, Photo Editor
Ladakh One Love Playsuit, $51
"It's cute alone, but the best part about this playsuit is that it doubles as a chic canvas for so many styling choices, beginning with this diamond-patterned quilted vest (by Harlyn). Truthfully, I've already repeated this outfit twice so far in less than two weeks of owning both pieces...oops."—Lindsey Sirera, Style Assistant Editor
