Leave it to the Brits — Burberry, Christopher Kane and Zandra Rhodes, of course — to breathe new life into cut-out sandals by way of metallic chain details or visors, the tie-dye hair scarves from the 1960s.

Let’s just say: London’s fun sense of style came across during the UK capital’s fashion week -- nowhere more so than in the accessories.

Trust us some of the trends spotted on these runways will be everywhere come spring: The alluring heels, interesting bags, sneakers in punchy neon color-blocking and the jelly sandal (fit for a modern-day Cinderella on the run) are here to stay. Hurrah!

So, without ado, here are some of the best accessories and the strongest looks straight from the catwalks in London.
