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

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.

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?

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.
