With the launch of every new season, not only are we treated with endless rows of gorgeous new clothing, there is always a beautiful array of new accessories for as far as the eye can see. While this fashionably curated paradise is wonderful for browsing purposes, when it comes to putting together your wardrobe for the season, it can seem a little overwhelming. Accessories are what complete any and every look so it is important to make the right choices for your style. Here we’ve got a list of lust-worthy accessories and our style guide on how to complete your Autumn accessories wardrobe.
This season has seen classic styles reinvented for the contemporary woman as well as new trends developing too. With this, the much loved Marble trend came back in full force, especially in jewellery and accessories. The marble trend may have been established for the past few seasons but this Autumn it’s all about marble watches and cuffs. Snow white marble mixed with gold or rose gold is the definition of luxurious and it is completely to die for! When you’re bringing in marble to your wardrobe, less is more. Being such a popular pattern at the moment, you’ll only want to add marble subtly to your look and that’s why an accessory is the perfect marble piece – understated and sophisticated. Our must have Autumn marble accessories is the luxurious Marble ring from Samantha Wills.
Handbags and Clutches
After you’ve got your jewellery sorted for the season, it’s time to work on your handbags and clutches. As every celeb we know and love has shown us over the past few years, an ‘it’ handbag can make your whole look. Every year there are cult handbags released from key designers and this year we, and of course the likes of Blake Lively and Kate Moss, are all about the Mulberry Bayswater Handbag. In a number of colours such as oak, oxblood and chocolate, there is one for every style and occasion… yes, I feel a slight obsession coming on! As well as a statement handbag, every season calls for a clutch you can pair back with every formal outfit. This season the must-have style is classic and sophisticated like the Saint Laurent Tasselled Clutch. In black leather with a gold tassel, this elegant style is all we’ve been wanting out of a clutch!
When it comes to accessories, once we get past the bags, shoes are so often the highlight of every shopping experience for many women. Our favourite must-have styles to hit the pavement this season are high ankle boots with a wide opening. These look perfect worn with skinny jeans or pair back with calf high socks for a super toning look. If you’re loving the ankle boot but wanting something a little more daring, opt for a peep toe ankle boot like the ones we’ve been spying on polyvore. For an added chicness to your look, choose one of the ultra lust-worthy lace up styles in either black leather or natural suede. Autumn and boots – an unbeatable combination!
Now that your look has been perfected with jewellery, bags and shoes, it’s time to complete your outfit with our number one must have accessory of the season – the tailored Blazer. With everyone from fast fashion labels to luxury brands releasing their own take on the tailored blazer, this piece is an essential addition to every wardrobe and will be for seasons to come. Being such a statement piece that you’ll always cherish, this is a piece that you will want to invest in. Choosing a style that fits your body impeccably is important, and also be sure that the hardware such as buttons and trims are of exceptional quality to keep your blazer looking crisp and new. If it’s an investment piece that you’re after, Balmain have perfected it in both Navy and Black with gold detailing. If well maintained, this is a style that will become a family heirloom for generations to come, rightly earning the status of the ‘ultimate accessory.’
Take your accessory game to new heights this season with the must have styles that will instantly lift every look. Whether you’re working in a new cuff, a statement bag or investing in a blazer you’ll keep for a lifetime, the Autumn accessory collections of 2016 are full of gorgeous styles you’ll absolutely love.
