How to accessorise this autumn

With the last summer days behind us, celebrate the start of the cosy season with pieces you'll be excited to pull out on chilly mornings. Aside from this being a great time to do a bit of an “autumn clean”, ridding yourself of clothes you haven’t worn in some time (or maybe ever), it's also the perfect moment to see what outfits you can simply freshen up with a new accessory or two.

Drawing inspiration from Milan and Paris Fashion Week’s, we single out some of the key accessories that have been popping up again and again on the runways as well as on chic show-goers snapped on the streets. You can see how the addition of an elegant hat, or a chic pair of glasses elevates a classic outfit, transforming it into a downright seasonal sensation.

A favourite of Gigi and Bella Hadid, this season it is the smaller the better when it comes to eyewear. Pair it with a tough biker jacket, some slouchy jeans and a pair of crisp trainers for a stylish off-duty look.

The baker boy hat

Featuring in the Dior and Moschino shows to name a few, this hat brings a youthful nod to any outfit. Team it with an oversized tee and classic denim, or rock it a la Cara Delevigne with some straight leg trousers and a touch crop.

The cylinder bag

Once seen on the arm of a 60’s airline hostess, this ultra-mod bag will bring some style and class to any outfit. Either head out for the night after work with in a tailored blazer, or add a splash of cross-body colour to a smock dress.

The beret

This French classic is back with a vengeance this season. Wear it in the classic felt style, with a military trim or the tougher full-leather option, the beret adds a touch of class to all staple looks.
