Add some zing to pastel accessories with a burst of juicy colour. Pep up this ladylike top-handle tote () with a pair of bold shoes to supercharge your outfit. Equally, this soft peach and creamy vanilla cross-body bag () will offset the boldest of ensembles.
“Consider your pairings
and infuse DELICATE
shades with a rich shot
Earthy shades are perfect for offsetting the season’s khaki trend. The fashion equivalent of a healthy green juice, pick a neutral shoulder bag or tan shoes (these suede sandals with a perspex heel, , are coming soon) and you’ll feel well balanced, whatever you’re wearing. From an LBD to indigo denim, these versatile accessories work with multiple looks.
“For a CLASSIC finish,
neutral accessories are
the cream of the crop”
