How to accessorise this autumn
It’s official, summer is nearing a close and autumn is now within our-sights. For many of us this means doing the big wardrobe swap, moving the bikini’s to the back and the jumpers to the front of our drawers. Aside from this being a great time to do a bit of an “autumn clean” and get rid of clothes you haven’t worn in some time, it is also the perfect occasion to see what outfits you can simply freshen up with a new accessory or two.
With Milan and Paris Fashion Week’s drawing to a close, we single out some of the key accessories that have been popping up again and again on the runways as well as on the chic show-goers snapped on the streets. You can see how with the easy addition of a hat or a pair of earrings it instantly transforms a classic outfit into a seasonal sensation.

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.

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.
