The 5 Power Accessories That Were All Over Fashion Week's Streets

Not ready for a full knitwear look? Haven't quite got to grips with your winter coat choices yet? Don't think you could deal with getting into tights and doing the big wardrobe switchover? Me either. That's why I've been laser-focused over the past few weeks on the accessories fashion's coolest have chosen to wear with their new-season looks at the runway shows across NYC, Paris, London and Milan.

Whether it's a simple change of shoes or a more drastic addition (how do you really feel about bucket hats?), there are some fast-track add-ons to adopt henceforth. Along with some of my favourite street style examples of these powerful accessory trends, I've also supplied you with some little shopping prompts to get the look. Oh, look—I've just saved you time, autumn panic, but probably not money. Enjoy!
