The unsung heroes of our wardrobes: belts, bags, sunglasses and watches are often worn as an afterthought - a practical necessity - but in terms of style, they're one of the simplest ways to update your outfit and lift it right out of the ordinary.
These finishing touches will fast become your favourite way to bring an outfit together, and with the right care and attention, they will stay that way for seasons to come. Read on to discover some of our top tips to help prolong the life of your accessories.
