8 accessories to polish your A/W18 look

Published on 11 May 2018

Covering up in winter often means rotating through the same handful of faithful outer layers – sometimes to uninspiring effect. While we often fall back on those same faithful coats or jackets to stay warm, seasonal accessories add character and are one of the easiest ways to keep your look current.

A high quality, investment boot will always add class to even the simplest outfit. Mid-height, knee-high styles make an elegant staple for dresses and coats that fall mid-thigh, while the ever-versatile ankle boot will also serve you through the seasons, pairing effortlessly with dresses and pants alike. This year, shoes move beyond black leather to embrace unique combinations of colour and texture, with luxurious suede and velvet uppers and deep plum tones starring.

Classic, understated leather bags are another essential of the season – with long strapped, cross-body styles offering versatility and elegance.

As the mercury drops, try finishing your look with a classic wool beret. Reimagined this season in pastel and berry tones, the beret proves itself as a timeless icon that feels more relevant than ever.
