From bold prints to oversized statement jewellery, this season’s accessories will add colour and style to your autumn wardrobe.
The weather’s getting colder, the days are getting shorter and it’s time to start thinking about our autumn-winter wardrobes. Buying a whole new set of clothes each season is not always feasible, but changing your accessories is an easy way to instantly update your wardrobe.
Here is our pick of some of the biggest accessories trends this autumn.
The hottest accessories for autumn 2018 all have a distinct retro vibe. With an obvious nod to the 1980s and 1990s, models were sent down the catwalk wearing banana clips, zig zag hairbands and micro sunglasses. Jewellery also got in on the act with industrial, art deco style pieces and 1970s-inspired giant disco hoop earrings.
Statement jewellery was one of the key trends on the autumn/winter catwalks, where bigger certainly was better. Models strutted their stuff sporting oversized earrings, large jewelled pendants and ostentatious gold link chains, while wrists were adorned with chunky gold timepieces that didn’t skimp on the bling. Get the look and tick both the retro and statement style boxes by looking out for used Rolex watches for sale.

This autumn’s fashion is all about bright colour and bold prints, but if you’re not brave enough to wear an all-over print, add a splash of colour to your wardrobe and liven up a plain outfit with eye-catching printed accessories. Scarves, shoes, gloves, bags and hats in floral, plaid, paisley patterns, or in neon shades of animal print, are bang on trend and are sure to make your outfit pop.
Scarves also featured heavily on the runway in the 2018 autumn/winter shows, from retro offerings to Philip Lim’s cheerful, statement-making puffer style scarf. And this season’s scarves are not just for keeping your neck warm; designers used them as purse accessories, bag straps and even as a non-traditional ankle strap for a pair of pumps. For a hint of retro, 50s-style glamour, use your scarf as a stylish head covering and team with an oversized pair of black shades.
Gloves are everywhere this season, but a pair of mittens just won’t cut it, no matter how warm they may be. This look is all about vintage gloves with elegance and old-school glamour with sleek driver-style and elbow-length gloves. Bold shades of pink, purple and red give the style a modern twist, or stick with classy neutrals such as mustard, camel and grey for effortless sophistication.
Top it all off
A great hat provides the perfect finishing touch to any autumn outfit – but we’re not talking a cosy knitted beanie or bobble hat. This autumn, style aficionados are upping the ante and staying true to the season’s retro aesthetic by topping their ensemble with a bold bowler, funky fedora or stylish Stetson. This style sometimes requires a bit of bravery but the end result is certainly worth it.
The perfect accessories can totally transform an outfit, and with so many great looks around at the moment, you’re sure to find a style that works for you, keeping you looking great all season long.
