White Out

Neutral accessories are the key to balancing this season’s loud trends, and white feels much fresher than beige, brown or black. Team this with clashing prints for maximum impact.

Clutch Control

A nude leather clutch may be a staple for any time of year, but the chain shoulder strap and gold hardware of this sleek Miu Belle Nappa leather number elevate it to pole position in our resortwear wardrobes.

To Dye For

Tie-dye is officially one of the biggest hypes of the year, with the resort runways reviving this nostalgic print in new and exciting ways. Impossible to miss, this bag is ideal for stylish entry-level accessibility to the trend.

Hey There, Stud

Embellished accessories feature heavily across this season’s cruise collections, with studs, rivets and gold hardware adding a rock ’n’ roll edge to signature styles. This Valentino dream ticks all the right style boxes.

The Great Clarifier

Red remains one of the richest hues on fashion’s colour wheel and this blood-red bag packs a punch whether worn with a clashing shade or head-to-toe monochrome.

Black And White

Minimalist doesn’t have to mean subdued, and this monochrome Chanel 19 flap bag is the perfect example. Crafted from calfskin with gold detailing, this beauty will go with anything in your wardrobe.
