My favourite accessories would have to be the ones for the cooler months, as you can wear more of them and they're generally snuggly little treats which help get you from a - b. The accessories that I'm MOST excited about for AW11 are collars. Not those stiff dull collars that you see the suits wearing in the financial district, but those beautifully textured collars - whether they be lace, leather, fur etc. There are so many choices out there for collars right now and I want a whole wardrobe of them! Cheap, hot and the best way to spruce up a standard outfit. Perfecto!
This faux fur beastie not only pleases the animal lovers out there, but also looks like a cosy little number for those wintry nights. I like the idea of wearing it over a minimalist dress to spruce up your outfit for the upcoming festive season. Foxy non?

One of my besties used to have a much loved sheepie that she'd carry with her everywhere when we were younger, and would play with it between her fingers at any excuse. This collar evokes the same feeling of her sheepie with me - comforting, cosy and darling. Looks like Cj was onto it with ol' sheepie sheepster.

From home comforts to the more elegant, Mui Mui have a collar for those of you who like the finer things in life. This brilliant white furry number is one you'd save for more special occasions, like a romantic dinner date with your lover. I'd avoid the red vino while wearing this wee princess though.

Velvet is very eastern London to me, so I can imagine seeing this Topshop collar on the cool kids around town. This would look amaze with a patterned shirt, high waisted skirt and brogues. London luxe indeed.

Peter Pan collars are too chic, so it's no surprise that ASOS has created an isolated collar in this style. The fact that it's in leather is just the icing on the cake. Plus what a great way to nail the fetish trend at the moment...pun very much intended.

Now as always, the question is which one to opt for! I'm leaning towards the foxy ASOS option, nothing makes a cold day better than a snuggalicious accessory. And yes, I did just type snuggalicious.
Long live accessories which make the cold months bearable!
