Finishing touch: boots and bags that add something extra
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 also need a chic winter handbag that's practical enough to carry your umbrella. 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 using your outfit's finishing touches, like a pastel tone crossbody bag or even light tan or black with contrast stitch detail if you're not a fan of colour. 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 now there are adult versions, with classic ruffles, check prints, polka dots and more.
