Camille Charrière Accessorises River Island Style
The Debrief: With so much to choose from in River Island's A/W Collection, we've enlisted Blogger Camille Charrière for her top accessory picks.
Old school scarf? Check ('scuse the pun)! Keep your outerwear game strong by adding a pop of colour to your daily uniform of black, white and grey with a classic 70s scarf.
Like all the best things in a woman's wardrobe, the key is to make it look like you've pinched it from the man in your life (boyfriend/dad/grandpa/Tinder date...), as nothing adds nonchalance to your outfit better than a simple woollen scarf.
I've personally always been a scarf girl, as the cold weather accoutrement is the easiest accessory to throw on all year round, with minimal fuss and bother. As you know, I suffer from chronic chromophobia, and find that adding colour via removable layer is the only way to avoid getting-out-of-the-house-on-time-in-the-morning panics.

Wear loose and long over a simple silhouette to elongate the body, or tie tight in a classic knot making sure to keep your hair tucked-in (note to self: when in doubt, always tuck your hair into whatever you are wearing, as this will immediately propel you into Highfashionland).
This season is all about denim. Pair your go-to styles (Boyfriend Jeans I'm looking at you!) with a fitted turtleneck and classic loafers to nail the Parisenne-girl-next door look. Alternatively, invest in a great pair of 70s flares, but wear with the hem turned up to add modern flair.
A black bag with gold hardware also adds the perfect finishing touch to add flair to a day silhouette. This kind of style will double up as a chic cocktails-on-the-town option for date night.
