    This is a Marie Claire Advertorial

    Embellish your wardrobe this summer with an on-trend accessory. A beautifully detailed handbag is the easiest way to add a sprinkling of new season style to your look and with such a varied selection of statement finishes to choose from, it’s never been so easy to channel a trend.

    Studs and black leather go together like nothing else, so start your new collection with the Aira Studded Clutch by McQ Alexander McQueen. Not just for night, carry with confidence to the office and up the ante on your professional workwear.

    Flower power is back, bringing the ‘70s and embellishment trends together in a beautiful love-in. This Flower Appliqué Tote Bag by Orla Kiely is top of our list for showing our fashion credentials at work and off-duty.

    Don’t think embellishment is limited to shimmering sequins or statement studs: This season, it encompasses so much more, including subtle quilting. Just look to Vivienne Westwood Anglomania’s Sharlene Quilted Back Pack to see how to wear it. A super-luxe take on the backpack, this is how high fashion girls do casual.

    We won’t be slumming it at this summer’s festivals – we’ll be showing off some of our more luxurious pieces to make sure we’re on-trend at every event. Follow our lead and invest in this Uganda Secchiello Bucket Bag by Pinko to give your festival wardrobe the VIP treatment.
