INSPIRATION AND ADVICE

5 FINISHING TOUCHES FOR AUTUMN

By Sophie Davis, 21 March 2018

Coco Chanel once said of accessories: 'Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off'. Well, thanks for the advice, but this season there's way too much goodness out there for that. From the sunnies that'll upgrade every outfit to the sneakers that make whatever you wear look fresh, here are the five finishing touches we're into this autumn.

Life's too short to leave this chic chapeau to the people of France – it's time to experiment with headwear this season. The beret is equally at home paired with a bright tracksuit or dressed up with a checked blazer, cropped jeans and mules. Magnifique!

Technical sneakers

It’s not just the guys who can benefit from a bit of dadcore influence. This season, sneakers are going technical with mesh detailing, chunky soles and sporty details. Even better, they’ll go with everything, from turned-up jeans to pleated midis. And, you’ll never miss a bus again.

Bumbags

Ah, bumbags – the most stylish way to hold a coffee in one hand and text with the other. Go for a quilted, oval design and sling it across your body or secure high around your waist. This street styler is using hers to cinch in her trench – nice twist.

Abstract earrings

If you love a statement earring, get involved in this season's abstract trend – think oversized shapes in gold or resin finishes. Get inspired by this Copenhagen showgoer and use a pair to add polish to a hoodie and jacket combo. They look best with a simple low ponytail – perfect for those mornings when the snooze button is your best friend.

Cat-eye sunglasses

Aka the foolproof way to get feline flicks when you’re not so handy with the liquid eyeliner. The sun will be out at some point, so get in there early and grab some now. Any colour goes, so feel free to be adventurous (or just buy a few pairs).
