My last blog gave you part one, now here’s part two with more ideas on accessories to wear this autumn.
Women’s bags are predominantly more structured this season. The “doctor’s bag/bowling bag” shape is huge and comes in lots and lots of different colours and details. Clutch bags are BIG and the tote is a fashion necessity – also very practical for carrying the odd laptop or work folder!
Hopefully, by now, all of you have embraced the “man bag”. There are so many fab options to choose from – formal briefcase styles to more casual across-the-body bags, there’s something to cater for all your carrying needs. So gentlemen, don’t be shy, go and grab yourselves a bag!
Are the big thing – and boy, were they big on the catwalks! We can be a little less exaggerated but a hat of some sort is a fashion must-have for the new season. Whether you’re male or female, start looking now for the perfect piece of headgear for those frosty, winter mornings.
Both men and women can use a scarf to add autumn colours and winter florals and prints to any plain garment. Prices vary greatly. Look out for Zara printed scarves which are great value and so on-trend. Department stores carry lots of different options at lots of different prices.
Also very strong for the new season. Whether it’s a long, soft leather pair for her or a pair in tweed fabric for him, a pair of gloves is a practical addition to your new autumn wardrobe.
A pocket square is the solution for adding a bit of zing to any jacket or coat. Men will find some great options at Reiss and Paul Smith.
There are loads of jewellery alternatives to choose from and, this season, it’s all big, bold and beautiful. My biggest tip to all my female readers – go and get a huge, jewel encrusted cocktail ring. They’re available from £10 upwards in the high street and add a great bit of Anna Karenina opulence to any outfit.
I could go on but I think there’s enough here to inspire you to have a bit of accessorising fun over the next few weeks.
