October heralds the start of not only the shooting season in the UK but the arrival of autumn weather. We all know what’s coming, a sartorially challenging combination of chillier days, rain and gusting winds. No need to hibernate just yet, however, as adding a suitably chic cap to your autumn wardrobe will not only keep you snug and dry – but will take you from town to country effortlessly. Think a one-stop, multitasking accessory that not only elevates your winter style, but works as well in Mayfair as it does in the Highlands. Uber luxe caps are having a moment.
