Super-size handbags are taking a backseat for SS22, so give your oversized tote the summer off and invest in this season’s trend for daintier, lighter weight, handbag styles instead. Whether it’s a demure clutch bag in a pastel colour block from Furla or a sculpted across-the-body bag from designers such as Michael Kors you’ll find a host of small but oh-so-chic handbag shapes, patterns and colours, to help you get from A-B in effortless style. Or sidestep colour altogether for on-trend bags from Coccinelle in SS22's must have shade: white.
Springtime is all about freshness and new beginnings, so start every day right this SS22 with a watch that brings a style boost to every outfit. From flirty florals from the likes of Fossil to leather straps in pastel shades from Armani, taking your watch game from winter to spring is all about switching out autumnal hues for delicate patterns and soft colours. Opt for all-white watches in keeping with SS22’s minimalist and romance trends, or brave the day with statement stripes and bold neons.
Sunglasses are embracing a retro aesthetic for SS22, with feline inspired cats-eye frames (a favourite of the flirty ‘50s) coming to the fore. Championed by silver screen starlets like Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn these expressive slender glasses, with their distinctive turned up corners, are the must-have style to step out in again this spring. The key to nailing this sunglasses trend is to let the shape take centre stage, so avoid busy patterns in favour of bright white and classic black designs from the likes of Tom Ford and Gucci.
