As the mornings get a little more crisp and the leaves around us turn to rich shades of red, brown and orange, discover an inspiring selection of pieces that are perfect for autumn at The Royal Exchange.
THAT’S A WRAP

Whether you opt for an artistic woodland theme, an equestrian-inspired abstract print, or a more classic, neutral colourway, keep the cooler autumn air at bay by layering up with an elegant scarf that befits your personality.
HAND IN GLOVE

An autumn-winter essential, gloves are another opportunity to add a bit of personality to your seasonal outerwear. Hermès’ bright orange knitted gloves will add a cheery pop of colour to the darker mornings, while leather gloves make a smart addition to formal, tailored outfits. And you’ll never regret investing in a pair of sumptuously soft cashmere gloves, to keep your hands cosy and snug when you are out and about in even the coldest of temperatures.
BEST FOOT FORWARD
Cashmere Socks, £95, Ron Dorff (available from mid-October); Coniston boot in slate suede, £430, Crockett & Jones; Burgundy Ribbed Wool Cashmere Socks, £15, Sirplus
Autumn weather can be unpredictable, so a pair of sturdy, waterproof boots to see you through the season is a must. These leather Conistons from Crockett & Jones are just the ticket, with storm welting and rubber soles. Team them with a pair of cosy yet breathable cashmere socks to keep your feet extra comfortable, whether you are strolling in the city or rambling through the countryside.
IN THE BAG

A tote bag is the ultimate everyday companion for carrying your essentials in style while on the go. Spacious enough to transport larger items, such as a laptop and business documents, to the office during the week, a sophisticated tote is also perfect for leisurely weekend activities such as brunching or shopping with friends.
Clockwise from top left: Connections Prism Plain Necklace in 18k rose gold, £850, Vashi; Victoria® Vine Climber Earrings in rose gold with diamonds, £3,775, Tiffany & Co.; Wild Flower Bracelet in 14k rose gold plated silver, £295, Tateossian; Raindance Classic Rose Gold Diamond Ring, £9,800, Boodles
From nature-inspired earrings and ornate rings to contemporary bracelets and minimal pendants, carefully selected and beautifully-crafted rose gold jewellery will add a refined finishing touch to your outfit. From subtle, understated pieces for everyday wear to striking diamond-adorned creations that will dazzle on special occasions, there are options to suit all tastes and events to be discovered within The Royal Exchange jewellery boutiques.
SHOW AND TELL
L-R: Constellation Co-Axial Master Chronometer 36mm in yellow gold, £26,320, Omega; Broadsword Bronze Tobacco watch, £2,995, Bremont; Pre-loved Rolex Sky-Dweller 42mm in yellow gold, £35,675 Watchfinder & Co.
A watch is a barometer of taste and the timepiece you choose to wear says a lot about your personal style. Yellow gold is a striking and opulent detail best matched with eveningwear, and a rare and timeless model – such as this preloved Rolex Sky-Dweller from Watchfinder & Co. – will make a particularly impressive statement on your wrist. For a more subtle, but still interesting, finish, Bremont’s Broadsword Bronze timepiece is also sure to mark you out as a watch connoisseur.
