It seems almost criminal to be thinking about Autumn/Winter 2015 when we're still yet to enjoy the promise of sunshine, tan lines and pool parties due in the coming months - but New York Fashion Week rules, and this week it's forced us to forecast way ahead of schedule. With this in mind, Anna Lou's been keeping a watchful eye on the AW '15 catwalks to bring you the best of Autumn Accessories rounded up from NYFW's various shows, and her top tips to get the look now! 1. OVERSIZED EARRINGS At Rosie Assoulin, bigger was better - contrasting simple, tailored dresses with oversized feminine earrings to create a quirky balance between masculine and feminine. Recreate the look with a pair of Anna Lou's statement danglies, such as these Brit-twist crown earrings. Pair with a simple colour block dress and channel your inner K-Mid in a flash.

Jason Wu decided to go back to basics with his first venture into jewellery design, adorning simple and minimal earrings, necklaces and bracelets with a single pearl for a polished finishing touch. Add an edge to this classic look by donning double-ended pearls, for a timeless all-year look.

Monique Pean decided that bangles are back - although Anna Lou could've told her that already! A stack of gold bangles is the perfect partner to any outfit - day or night - and for Autumn/Winter 2015 it's all about adding texture and interest. Stack up some classic gold enamel bangles with textured knots and a choice of colours, to pack a real accessories punch.

NYFW AW14 Street Style Trends

Fashion month is under way and while we are excited about everyone descending on the cobbled streets of Somerset House for London Fashion Week in a few days, the style on the streets of New York has been pretty captivating this season. With the recent snow storms and sub zero temperatures that the city has been experiencing, the fashionable have had to rethink their usual stylish combos and seek out clothes that can both wow the photographers and keep them from hypothermia. Because of this the NYFW AW14 street style trends have given way to some exciting new fashion movements. As we've been keeping a beady eye on the trends as they happen (AW14 catwalk trends to come in a seperate post) we've done the scouring and collating for you and put together the top five styles to try this season as seen on some of our favourite bloggers, journalists and celebs. Street Style from NYFW1. Monochrome It may seem an obvious choice for fashion week (you can't go wrong with all black right?) but not such an obvious choice for Spring. Yet every combo of monochrome possible has been spotted over the last week from prints to geometry to leather to stripes. Luckily this is one trend that's relatively easy to do year round so pick up some key monochrome pieces to add to your wardrobe now. Street Style from NYFW2. Pastels We've mentioned it already over on Facebook and Twitter but pastels are big news for this Spring, maybe even more so than last. The ubiquitous pink coat still seems to be going strong, but shades of ice blue and creamy whites are to be added. For top fashion brownie points this season however, it seems you need to team a pastel ensemble with a bright fluoro accessory. Pastel meets neon, we like? Grab some pastel pieces here. Street Style from NYFW3. Bright Accessories So we hate to brag but didn't we call this one just last week? Yup we predicted an outbreak of winter bright accessories and we were right! bright pink and blue bags were spotted everywhere and a micro trend of bright printed scarves around the head warned off the cold. You can shop printed scarves here and see our range of neon accessories here. Street Style from NYFW4. Fur The cold weather may have had a big part to play in this one but everyone who's anyone was sported a teddy bear fur coat this NYFW season and leading on from the above trend, the brighter the better. As well as coats all other fur accessories are game too from hand muffs to bag accessories and Russian style hats. Street Style from NYFW5. Prints The number one print this season had to be the tartan check, closely followed by stripes and geometric florals. Bright colours once again reigned but adding printed pieces to an outfit was the best way to layer up in the cold weather. Those were our top five trends from NYFW Aw14, we'd love to hear from you if you spotted any others? We'll be back with a post on the jewellery trends from fashion week soon but as always in the meantime tweet us @annalouoflondon or chat to us on Facebook.

Our Fashion Week Outfit Inspiration

Fashion weeks are upon us once again and with New York in full swing and London less than a few days away our attentions are turning to the dreaded 'What to wear' dilemma. As always in the fashion calendar, it can be easy to get yourself in a bit of a pickle with outfits around this time. We have only just had what appears to be our first proper day of Autumn after a gloriously long Summer but just as we reach for our coats and get ready to don our black opaques again, its time to start getting inspired by Spring Summer 2014! Confusing huh? But when it comes to fashion week there are a few key jewellery essentials that no outfit would be complete without. As they say, 'accessories are the key', so with that in mind we have compiled a little of whats inspiring us ahead of Friday from the NYFW streets and the pieces which will see you through five days of serious style. LFW statement necklaces 1. The Look at Me statement necklaces Throw a statement jewel encrusted necklace onto even the plainest of outfits and your instantly fashion week ready. We are getting inspired by these street stylistas and their amazing neck candy and will definitely be incorporating some of their pizzazz into our LFW outfits. Our new Luxe collection has just landed and its full of statement worthy bejewelled pieces which we will be working come Friday. LFW bling rings 2. The Bling Rings When it comes to fashion week we are never far from our phones, tablets and notepads, ready to record all of the action as it happens and keep our fans up to date on Twitter. Therefore there can be no hiding our hands in gloves or pockets and a bit of bling never goes amiss as these fashionable souls show! LFW arm candy 3. The Arm Candy Its an oldie but a goody. At Anna Lou of London we love stacking our bracelets up as high as they go and showing off some serious arm candy. There is never a better time to do so than at fashion week, so no matter what the outfit, we will be accessorising with at least one set of iconic bracelets. Don't forget that you can create your own arm candy sets at reduced prices from our mix and match section. This season Anna Lou of London will be taking part in the wonderful Handpicked Media's exclusive London Fashion Week style lounge and hosting an event space at One Aldwych where bloggers can pick up pieces to accessorize their fashion week outfits and get a first look at some of our new pieces. We will also have an Anna Lou representative at the shows and pounding the cobbled streets in search of some serious street style so keep an eye out for your pic appearing on this blog in the coming weeks. While all of this does mean this week is even more frantic than usual, we are also really excited to be part of the buzz that surrounds fashion week and play a part in styling the show-goers. Do keep up to date with us over fashion week by following us on Twitter and we look forward to seeing you all there!
