It’s all about creating the perfect pairings this season.
There are so many shoe and bag trends this season we actually feel quite overwhelmed.
Do we want to try out the dad sandals that are dividing the Nation, give a chic pair of mules a go or opt for the fail-safe flip flop? And that’s just shoes. Bags are a whole different entity all together – there’s the beach-ready basket bags, the Nineties style belt bags and there’s even arm-candy adorned with seashells ticking off one of summer’s key micro trends. You see it’s quite a lot to take in, but don’t panic there’s a simple styling trick to wearing any of them.
Whichever bag and shoe combo you go for this season, you just have to match them. That’s right the Eighties styling trick loved by the likes of Princess Diana and formally only associated with wedding guest looks is back. Go matchy-matchy and you can’t go wrong.
So yellow bag, team with yellow shoes. Animal print bag, pair with animal print shoes, pearl bag…you get the idea. Below we’ve rounded up some of our favourite accessory combination we’ve spotted on Instagram recently.
From weddings, to holidays to everyday dressing – this easy styling trick will update all your summer wares.
