Leather accents are making their mark on fashion this fall. The new collection from Petit Pois by Viviana G., available at Spoiled Chics the Boutique, embraces this trend full throttle with faux-leather jackets, faux-leather inserts on slinky dresses, and faux-leather panels on sleek mesh tops. The Miami-based line tops off these au courant looks with a tough-meetschic faux- leather cap, $73, pictured here. We love this fun accessory as a new way to incorporate the popular trend and to finish off all of our outfits this season. Spoiled Chics the Boutique, 350 Beaver St., Sewickley. 412.741.0977. spoiledchics.com.
