Stylist and fashion director Pip Hamilton takes us through this season’s must-have accessories and how to work them into your wardrobe

This season I’ve been the stylist for the CollectPlus ‘Live Life On The Plus Side’ campaign looking at accessories for the season ahead. 

The thing with accessories is that they can entirely change and enhance a look. You don’t necessarily have to update your entire wardrobe every season to stay on trend; you can tweak your look just with statement, trend-led pieces like these. I’m somebody who very much believes in a staple wardrobe of classic, simple pieces such as chunky knits and plain denim, and then making them more interesting with accessories, so this is something that I can really relate to – being a little bit bolder through the bits that you add to your look.

Key trends for the season are Seventies, colour and texture, and when pulling the edit together I’ve chosen pieces that illustrate these in a strong way so that if you’re not quite brave enough to wear them in your clothes, you can still inject the key catwalk trends into your look without committing time and money to a radical overhaul.

Using CollectPlus to Click & Collect really lends itself well to this – you can experiment and pull a whole bunch of different accessories and styles together and take your time working them into your existing wardrobe at home. And then the ones that aren’t quite for you, you can pop back just as easily with CollectPlus at your nearest newsagents or supermarket.
