Berried treasure: How to accessorise with autumn's sought-after shade

Runways and high streets alike are caught up in maroon mania, and it looks like the sultry shade of the season is here to stay.

The bold hues of oxblood red and burgundy are rich and autumnal - a perfect fit for fall. While versatile with the black, white and neutral basics in your wardrobe, the colours can also add depth to some of the season's patterns and prints such as suede, plaid or 70s denim.

If you're experiencing the oxblood obsession but not sure about going head-to-toe red, we've selected our favourite accessories that allow you to subtly add the richness of the colour to your outfit without going overboard.

The satchel has become a must-have item in the world of cross body bags, and this leather oxblood beauty from Mulberry is pretty much the dream with a perfect balance of casual yet luxurious.
