Fenwick fashion week

The only real way the fashion pack can make a style statement at London Fashion Week in this weather is through their coat and their accessories. This season, there is a definite Eighties power vibe when it comes to jewels - the bigger and bolder the better. Our favourites are by the queen of power dressing, New York designer Diane Von Furstenberg. This gold, chunky charm necklace and these resin stacking bangles would easily dress up a classic cashmere knit. Anyone can make like they are heading straight for the front row with this stylish two-tone trilby, indispensable Ray-Ban sunglasses and Chanel's new hydrating lipstick in must-have Arthur red.

Necklace, £445, Diane Von Furstenberg; Sunglasses, £129, Ray-Ban; handbag-sized eau de parfum, £76, Chanel Coco Mademoiselle; hat, £89, Helene Berman; bangles, £69, Diane Von Furstenberg; Rouge Coco lipstick in Arthur, £25, Chanel (Available at Fenwick Bond Street and Kingston)
