3 Wardrobe-Worthy Accessories To Try For Autumn / Part 1


by Niamh ODonoghue
08th Sep 2017

Smart accessorising is the one primitive way to upgrade, modernise, personalise,’re-energise your personal capsule collection; whatever your tastes or style.

The change of season has brought with it 70’s colour palettes?- which have?champion the aW17 runways, embellishments, jewels, bold prints, and fresh new color?combinations. But no outfit is complete without the perfect accessories to go with it. Here are 3 must-try accessories to try this autumn and where to find them. September is the month of change, after all.

The Bag

Juxtaposing last years collections of long-chained cross-body bags (as seen at Prada, Dior), this year’s?focus is all on the handle – and short ones at that. Swap traditional square handles for quirky circular ones for an updated and chic outfit quick-fix.

Baker AP printed PVC tote, Acne Studios, €400,?Cookie O-Ring Clutch Bag, Topshop, €29, Rigid corduroy minaudiere, Zara, €39.95

The Time Piece

Finding the right watch can be like finding a needle in a haystack. Not only is wearing a watch practical and efficient, it’s also a chic and subtle way to add sparkle to your ensemble if you’re not too keen on over-accessorising. We love the new Swatch ‘Second Skin’ range for their vibrant colors and personality. Who says you can’t wear florals in autumn?

‘Pistillo’, Swatch, €50, Signature leather watch, Skagen, €103.93,?Parlour Watch by Olivia Burton, Topshop.com, €117

The Shoe

Don’t be disheartened that you can’t afford Yves Saint Laurent’s $10,000 glitterati boots *sobs into hands*. Instead, focus your energy into the sock boot. It might not sound the most dazzling, but thanks to fashion insiders it has quickly become Instagram’s most-coveted shoe.

 

Striped sock-style ankle boot, Zara, €39.95,?Satin ankle boots, H&M, €39.99, jeweled sock-style ankle boot, Uterque, €129
