Want the perfect party shoes and bags? You’ll love these…
Right now, we’re in Accessory Heaven.
Why? Because we all love a shiny or embellished shoe and an eye-catching clutch.
This party season, there are so many exquisite party shoes and party handbags in all kinds of materials and with all kinds of embellishment that we don’t know which to grab first to ramp up the glamour quotient.
Here is the run-down on all our (sorry, all your) amazing options in fabulous footwear and beautiful bags for the forthcoming party season…
Velvet is first up as a key trend for party accessories. Velvet is the ‘hot’ fabric for autumn/winter. Though often crafted into fabulous frocks and sensational separates, it also appears for the party season as stunning jewel-tone shoes and boots and for brilliant bags, too.
SHIMMER & SPARKLE
Metallics are another key trend having taken the reverse journey to velvet, starting as accessories.. Metallic gold and silver are party-wear classics, but this season’s metallics appear in more off-beat shades. For an extra helping of sparkle, perhaps to pair with a simple LBD, we think crystal-embellished and sequin-embellished bags and shoes (heels and flats), are irresistible.
The season’s other major trend is texture. Velvet and metallics both play into that, of course, but other textured fabrics such as lace, satin and jacquard also come through in party accessories.
SUEDE & PATENT
Sometimes our party outfit is glam enough, and we want to style it with low-key accessories. This is where elegant suede or shiny patent become the perfect partywear partner. But you don’t have to play it too safe. We love the interesting cuts and shapes of these pumps, mules and sandals, and these simple but oh-so-elegant bags.
How do you like to accessorise? Bright colours and patterns, or do you like to keep it simple?
