Trends can be translated in so many ways and personalised to suit every individual’s taste. For those looking to make an outfit their own, accessories are one of the easiest ways to tailor the trends to you.
I’ve trawled the catwalks, e-tailers and the high street to narrow it down to 5 of the most effortless and versatile accessories trends for the season.
After editing my way through the brands, it’s clear which accessories stand out.
Whether it’s the timeless oversized bag or our new gloves obsession, wearing these is the easiest way to update your wardrobe for the season ahead without burning a hole in your wallet. In fact, you may well have a few in your collection already.

It’s the statement item that’s set to steal the show and draw all the attention this season. If your bag isn’t overshadowing your outfit, it simply isn’t big enough!
