A Perfect Match
Some accessories were just made to be together. At Style Insider, we’re partial to a game of designer mix-and-match and we’ve chosen our favourite pieces from a must-have line-up of shoes and bags to create the perfect pairings to invest in this season. Whether you favour effortless off-duty style, ladylike polish or timeless, designer icons, here are the partnerships that have stolen our hearts:
Ladylike Polish: Chloé Drew Bag + Saint Laurent Nu Pied Sandals
The Chloé Drew continues to be the ultimate It bag and with a new chain-trimmed style welcomed to the collection, now is the time to invest. Pair the versatile day-to-night silhouette with Saint Laurent’s strappy Nu Pied sandals for a match made in fashion heaven – we love the heart-punched version for an extra dose of charm.
Effortless Off-Duty: Givenchy Pandora Bag + Giuseppe Zanotti Cecil Slip-Ons
Channel instant Parisian cool-girl style with this nonchalant accessories pairing. While the Pandora’s slouchy silhouette, in tumbled leather, hangs effortlessly from the shoulder, the understated designer appeal of the skate-inspired sneakers ensures those in the know will take note.
Timeless Style: Saint Laurent Sac de Jour + Gianvito Rossi Rosemary d’Orsay Pumps
A sleek and sophisticated designer handbag never fails to pull together a look. Whether you’re laidback in boyfriend denim and cashmere or dressed to take charge in the boardroom, a timeless pairing like the Sac de Jour and a pair of d’Orsay Pumps will lend instant polish to the occasion at hand.
Modern Icons: Valentino Rockstud Shopper + Charlotte Olympia Kitty Flats
Ladylike, yet irreverent, the now-iconic Rockstud Shopper and Kitty Flats are a ubiquitous addition to any well-dressed wardrobe. Both designers take a timeless silhouette and turn it on its head with a modern update that is instantly recognisable, creating a fashion formula that works every time.
