Clutching it

Ditch the oversized handbag in favour of a, chic clutch bag. They add detail to any outfit and are a perfect finishing touch. To make your outfit stand out, opt for medium sized clutch bags with attention-grabbing details. We’re talking bold colours, fringing, studs or fur. Fur clutches are particularly popular among Fashion Week goers. Play around with different shapes and maybe try a fold-over clutch bag. The lack of handle makes for a perfect street style shot as you clutch on to it.

Finish off your outfit with a pair of sunglasses for glam chic. Let your frames do the talking and opt for reflective shades. Mirrored sunglasses help you add a futuristic touch or a retro-vibe to any look and make a strong statement while also adding a bit of colour. A pair of vibrant-hued mirrored sunglasses is sure to get you snapped by street syle enthusiasts. Another way to stand out from the crowd is to pick classic frames, from aviators and wayfarers to cat eye and round glasses. Go bold and choose frames in a daring colour.

The long and the short of it

Look for neutral tones for added versatility or go with a bold hue to add a bright pop to any outfit. The extra length of the straps also draws attention to the bag itself so make sure the bag doesn’t clash with the rest of your outfit. Anything Gucci or J.W Anderson is set to grab attention.

Wear your stole over neutral colours or one block colour to get the best effect.
