Forget beards, chunky knits and folded handles, OWLS are this year's carpiest accessory

You might think you're carpy, with your battered old kettle and your Instagram photos of retainer slings at dawn. But you're just an amateur. An amateur in a chunky-knit sweater making salmon risotto in your Ridge Monkey.

None of that is even remotely carpy in the face of this year's must-have accessory. An owl.

We aren't joking. Here's the proof.

An owl on a bankside chair? You got it.

An owl in a bivvy? Admit it, you want one.

A chunky common and an owl on the captor's shoulder? Just drink it all in.

A chunky common and an owl on the captor's shoulder RE-IMAGINED IN THE MEDIUM OF GRAPHITE? This is off the scale.

Take a bow, Mike Kernaghan. Follow him on Instagram here.

Now how carpy is this? Just count the ways.

Six-year-old twins Maisy and Ayla Douce, at Ashmead, with cable-knit jumpers, with buckets hats AND an owl. Peak carpy. 

So there you have it. Owls. So on trend right now.
