Which oh-so- haute autumn shoe and bag combo are you?
Autumn’s here and we have the benefit of a slew of recent fashion weeks and runway spectaculars on which to base our predictions for the season’s hottest fashion trends. First up, let’s talk bags and shoes. Because … obviously!
Metallics and minis are big on the scene this season. The colder months are always a good time for metallic-look finishes. And the mini clutch trend is continuing to the point where we’re even seeing petite little totes and drawstring bags.
Multi-layered patchwork also provides a lot of fun – look forward to an abundance of various leathers in a single item. But one of the most inspiring trends for autumn and winter is maintaining spring vibes even through the colder months. Designers and retailers alike are continuing the love affair with brights and even florals – throughout winter!
Enough talk. You need to see it for yourself. We’ve put together a few bag and shoe combos, based on what’s happening in the world of fashion right now. Which combo are you?
You’re as artsy as you’re forward thinking. And, though this might intimidate some, they’re probably just missing the fact that you’re grounded and much more dependable than you seem. Don’t worry; they’ll come around soon enough. Keep leading the way.
You’re clearly going places, which is why everyone’s just a little jealous. They enjoy watching you kick up dust, though, as do you.
Keep setting the pace by taking note of this season’s ‘nocturnal’ activewear trend. Inspired by twilight, choose gear that takes inspiration from a dawn or night-time run – navy, emerald, sunset, berry red and black – and you just can’t lose.
You’re naturally camera-ready and you can’t help it. So let them stare. You know they’re going to anyway. You’re always fashion forward, whether it’s the streets of Milan, London or Johannesburg, you’re stopping traffic in an ensemble of brights and blacks to punch up your winter coat look. Keep them guessing.
All that glitters and glows is you. So rise up and keep shining – you know they’re all looking to you to leave a trail of glitter to follow to all of life’s most exciting places.
Metallic looks are fun. And fashion panders to your every wish this season. But look to switch up to block heels next Friday night, because we’re seeing a lot of potential in the latest crystal and sparkle combinations for catching they’re eyes at every turn. Let’s glow.
Out on the town
You’re strong, independent and gorgeous. And you know that everyone wants to be around you. But you’ve earned the right to be picky. Because it’s time for you to claim what you’ve worked so hard and long to achieve. Keep enthralling them.
Whether en route to a meeting or a just pleasant stroll about the town, countryside or marina, you’re a vision of elegance.
You thrive on sophisticated colour blocking where clutches, boxy totes and heels are concerned. But look out for patchwork designs this season. You know you can afford to be a little more daring.
Suede and shine
Combine two of winter’s biggest trends: suede heels and metallic-sheer bags. When it comes to these richly textured stilettos, we like suede in reds and blues.
On metallic clutches, look for interesting and pouch-like shapes, as well as petite bows to complete the look.
