With Alexander McQueen covering models heads in statement jewels and Balenciaga taking encrusted shoes to a whole other level, there’s no getting away from the fact Autumn/Winter 2016/17 is all about in your face, stand-out accessories.

Obviously these trends are quite hard to pair down for everyday “real” life – I mean, it would be tricky to carry off a tiara like those shown by Tommy Hilfiger while doing your Tesco shop (well, you could give it a go….) but when it comes to your wedding day look… when else could you get away with sparkly headgear and hairpieces?!

We’ve selected some of our favourite statement bridal accessories below and have also created a Pinterest board for even more inspiration.

What’s more they come in a range of colour ways and heel heights so there’s a style for everyone.
