Step in AW11 with Accessorize

If there's one high street chain to grab all your accessories for the season it's without a doubt Accessorize. Every season their stores become an Aladdin's Cave of beautiful trinkets, bags, shoes, jewellery and gadgets to add a touch of glam and sparkle for your new season looks and AW11 is no exception.

The brands four main trends this season come under Margot, Phoenix, Abby and Lily each nodding their head to the key looks we saw strut down the catwalk. And with alot of the collection available in store and online now there is no excuse not to start shopping!

Margot; this 70s, ladylike trend is full of vintage art deco clutch bags and statement necklaces, beautiful felt floppy hats (this is one to be snapped up immediately) and some regal trinkets thrown in (just incase you get that invite to Balmoral). My personal favourite? The Regal Bow hairclip

Felt Floppy Hat £28
Statement Ring £7
Doctor's Bag £35
Milan Abstract Necklace £20
Deco Cigarette Clutch £35
Mega Layered Chain Necklace £22
Tassle Earrings £14

Phoenix; my absolute favourite of the four trends. I really need to invest in everything in this collection. Think navajo and aztec with a twist of masculine. This range even includes Accessorize's signature furry animal ear hats which are set to hit their stores in September. There's no better way to keep warm than in one of these.

Tepee Pendant £16
Fringe Tassle Hoops £12
Aztec Poncho £35 (in store August)
Bombay Ring £12
Duffle Bag £30
Pharaoh Necklace £18
Ikat Weekender Bag £40
Dream Catcher Earring £14
Statement Cuff £15

Abby; Tapestry, Brocade and Patchwork are the key elements for this vintage inspired collection. Imagine a weekend getaway in the countryside - which you will definitely need this Tapestry Doctor's Bag for! Pretty pendants and vintage gem statement necklaces to hang over your chunky knits whilst cosying up by the fire and beautiful brogues to give a bust of colour to your winter garments.

Brogues £30
Owl Party Necklace £30
Tarquin Drop Earrings £12
Rose Envelope Clutch £45
Tarquin Necklace £18
Floral Scarf £17
Owl Ring £12
Tapestry Doctor's Bag £60

Lily; With the kimono being a huge trend for summer (I should know, my collection of kimono's is currently standing at 9) Accessorize brings us a collection inspired by the orient. The pieces have a hint of Cinderella about them but are given a Japanese twist especially amongst the clutch bags and silk scarfs. And with the stunning ballet pumps - you won't be leaving one of these behind when the clock strikes 12!

Beaded Alice Band £14
Ballroom Clutch £40
Chunky Cable Scarf £24 (in store September)
Natasha Glass Necklace £20
Ballet Pumps £30
