Finishing touch: not your average boots and bags

It’s officially boots season; the weather has gotten a bit chilly and the drizzle of rain is sure to follow so you’re going to need to invest in a trendy pair of boots. With boots come bags so you’ll need a chic winter handbag that’s also practical, nothing annoys me more than having to hold my umbrella, coffee and handbag in the same hand! So, a cross-body is the perfect option to give you at least one arm and hand free for better use, plus it doesn’t hurt that tiny handbags are also very cute.

Would you believe that colour is in for winter? You can brighten up a gloomy cold day instantly with the finishing touches to your outfit. Add a pastel tone crossbody bag or If you’re not a fan of colour opt for light tan or black with contrast stitch detail. It’s the little details that count especially when you have a simple outfit on, accessories are all you need to give your outfit that extra punch.

Keep your footwear interesting by ditching regular black boots for options with embroidery, stitch detail or colour like khaki, red or maroon. Better still make your foot work extra fancy by adding some detailed socks. Remember when you were young, and your mother would put on those ruffle socks you loved so much? Well there’s now adult versions of with classic ruffles, check prints, polka dots and more. Be sure to keep all of finishing touches interesting this winter.
