Fringe, cowboy boots and “denim-on-denim” are migrating east and settling in for the fall. To embrace the look without completely transforming into Annie Oakley, add accents that hint at the trend instead.

The Montana Full Pave leather wrap bracelet shows 7.42 cts. pavé diamonds with Tahitian pearl closure, $6,995. Bonus: This arm piece doubles as a choker. vincentpeach.com

The AR.Drone 2.0 Elite Edition
Our favorite newcomer to the suddenly crowded Wi-Fi quadricopter market comes from tech toy pioneers Parrot Electronics. It’s controlled using iOS or Android smart devices and captures 720p high-definition video that can be saved or streamed. The little bugger comes in three digi-cammo coloways—snow, sand and jungle—and packs an onboard stabilization system to ensure clear footage. The drone also has a handy “return home” function that makes retrieval easier. Parrot.com, $300

Vestment
When it’s a tough call whether to bundle up or keep it light, split the difference with outerwear that fluctuates with Mother Nature’s fickle mood. Choose Topanga, a vintage patched suede duster with paisley trim and generous hood to do the job, $145. The unique vest complements fall’s best looks and is a statement piece unto itself. Perfect for layering, a chunky cable knit will look just as foxy peeking out as a white button down or fitted turtleneck would. Lotus Vintage, Huntington, (631) 470-7795

Splashy horological newcomers Sevenfriday pride themselves on taking design cues from the manufacture of industrial engines and put their complications on display with open layouts and anti-reflective mineral glass. We’re fans of the P3-2 because in contrast to its cutting-edge red and blue Miyota mechanics, it maintains an earthy vibe with a rich wooden animation ring. $1,300, sevenfriday.com

Caped Crusader
Take a cue from the pages of DC Comics and embrace the cape. This outerwear trend can spruce up jeans and a sweater and just as easily complement a head-turning evening ensemble. Drape this wool cape with leather trim over the shoulders to add the finishing touch to every look in this season’s closet and keep warm when the frost settles. The detachable fox fur collar changes the attitude from cherry to chic with a snap (literally). $735, Dimitiri Furs, East Northport, (631) 462-1313
