Knuckleduster

If this amazing Alexander McQueen ring is out of the question River Island have the perfect alternative. Team with Springs’ preppy nauticals for an unexpected twist.



Statement Necklace

Where Chanel goes everyone follows and the statement necklace is no exception. This River Island piece is made up of muted pastel stones woven together with silver twine. It’s the ideal accompaniment for a simple t-shirt or will add a little interest to the ever-present LBD.



Tan Bag

The classic summer bag, tan replaces winter's black as the bag that works hardest for you. It goes with everything (especially florals) and this size makes it the perfect bag for work. You might even squeeze in a laptop.



Bangle Trio

Bangles are back (again!) and more is definitely more, so pile them on. I love the mix of colours and detailing in these Marc by Marc Jacobs stack but Doo-Lally stud version are pretty cool at a snip…

Zip Boots

Alexander Wang is the designer of the moment and his black peep-toe zip boots were an instant sell-out. Next’s €59 version are a dead ringer for these and perfect for the sporty and utility looks that are everywhere this season.
