The edit: boots and bags
The only accessories you need to know now
We’ve got this whole is-it-still-late-summer-or-is-it-autumn-yet thing going on right now. And it’s making that morning outfit decision a real challenge, especially when it comes to our footwear. But Tu’s new boots and bags will help you navigate the changing seasons in comfort and style – here are our top picks of the ones to be seen in now.
Add some polish
Whether you want to dial up your work or weekend style, the easiest way to refresh your go-to outfits is with some sleek accessories. This structured studded backpack is roomy enough to fit everything (from your commuting trainers to a few cheeky weekend buys). It also comes with an adjustable shoulder strap so you’re basically getting two bags for the price of one. Winner. And these chunky leather ankle boots are made for both work and play: try with anything from a crisp shirt dress to your everyday skinnies.
Time to tan
When your black accessories just don’t feel quite right with your outfit, opt for some tan ones instead. Like these leather riding boots – they’re a classic wardrobe staple and look extra-nice teamed with mid-length dresses and skirts. We’d wear ours with a metallic pleated skirt and oversized textured knit for weather-appropriate style. Alternatively, try swapping your day-to-day black bag with this over-the-shoulder number – let it stand out by pairing with autumn’s must-wear muted pink.
The new casuals
Time to up-spec your off-duty accessories? Just take a look at these beauties. When the polished boots and bags we mentioned earlier feel a bit too smart, these ones should do the job nicely. The black ankle boots match well with tailored joggers, casual jeans and denim dungarees, the list goes on. And the slouchy holdall is the only bag you need for carrying your new novel in or the Sainsbury’s shop alike. Everything but the kitchen sink.
