Hands up who's bored of waking up to nothing but rain, rain with a side of rain? Us too.

As the seasonal calendar clicked over to a new month last week, it seems as if the weather Gods have also pulled the plug on any residual sunny heat leftover from summer, leaving us well and truly in the throes of a UK Autumn. 

For those of us fashion mavens, not only is the end of summer a happy instance to refill our wardrobes with autumn fashion trends, but it also provides the perfect excuse to snuggle up indoors with a cuppa and hit up the online shops with the latest trends in the accessories market.

So what's on the Autumn watch list this week? Watches. And lots of them! Let's take a look at the top 4 watch trends ticking into our hot-list of Autumn must-haves this October! 

Going for Gold

We all know that when it comes to your jewellery box, going for gold ensures your look stays classy and traditional and it seems as if watchmakers have taken this token and run a mile with it this Autumn. Seen across the catwalk among many designers during London Fashion week, timepieces have upped the ante with gold touches bringing a sense of warmth through contemporary styles and designs.

From chunky oversized gold chain wristwatches to more delicate and dainty mesh bracelet timepieces, there are such a plethora of gold styles for Autumn that can be accessorised for a look that really stands out. Nothing beats a bit of classic gold and these firm favourites are already turning our heads!

A defiantly feminine and delicate tone that has continued to weave its way throughout 2019 accessories is lavender. Subtle yet charming, lavender has been a firm favourite for many designers this year with autumn/winter looks being no different. The soft purple tones are perfect for those who are looking to add an understated splash of colour to their winter look without the drama of a brash and bold colour.

When combined with the likes of beautiful yellow and rose gold details, lavender watches make for a classy and sophisticated addition to any cool winter outfit - ideal for those who strive for elegant as well as fashion-forward accessories. Fall in love with some of the lovely looks that have us swooning for all things lavender!

A Touch of Grunge

You only have to head into any high street shop these days to see that designers have taken inspiration from the nineties grunge wave and brought it back with a contemporary update. Less about dramatic spikes and styles designed to shock, 2019 grunge has received a romantic twist with textured fabrics, patterns, chains and metals giving this timepiece trend an effortlessly cool and edgy update to just about any look. Here are some of the gorgeous grungy pieces that have caught our eyes of recent!

 Oh So retro!

We all know a good thing can't last forever but that's the magic of fashion - we can always bring something that was once good, back again! Watchmakers and designers have done exactly that this season!

Feeling somewhat nostalgic perhaps, designers have gone back to retro basics so expect to see a little less of those smartwatches and a lot more of digital watches, simple understated leather straps, preppy fabric bands and forever charming classic faces. Check out some of our favourite retro finds!
