This seasons game-changing statement accessories
SS17 means your footwear (and arm candy, never forget) is the gateway to serious statements.
Give us a black So Kate any day of the week and we’d be happy to wear it with anything and everything we own (you can wear a 6 inch pump to church right?) but this season don’t let your footwear be an afterthought.
Footwear this season heralds a new era of serious maximalism - whether you're just stepping over the starting line with some black knitted boots from Burberry or running the sprint in some latex sock-sandals; it's not for the shy, but the showy.
If you're looking for an easy answer to superlative glamour then throw on a t-shirt dress with the Balenciaga velvet thigh highs and a fresh face or pair with a slinky gown a la Lily Aldridge Met Gala 17 and show some serious leg.

Meanwhile in the bag department we're amping up the volume - no longer just a repository for your keys and lipstick, Balenciaga are recreating the bowling bag with a minimal take and Prada are adopting a comical approach to arm candy with their cartoon-esque velvet options. Those who want to settle for something more subdued, can look at Prada's ribbon bag, owning the spotlight as the ladylike option for this season.
