Shoes or bags? What’s your weakness? Well, when there are fashion-forward brands like Kurt Geiger on the high street, I have to say I’m all for both!
From the chunkiest boots to the highest heels, Kurt Geiger has all the statement-making footwear your inner Cinderella dreams of, and as for the bags… with signature eagle head detailing on luxurious velvet and leather and versatile chain straps we really are spoilt for choice.
In order to ease your decision-making to choose the perfect accessories, I have cast my stylist’s eye over the current collection in-store at Elys and selected 10 key pieces that will instantly update your style…
1. Rainbow Kensington Bag
Nothing says Kurt Geiger more than their now iconic metallic rainbow striped leather Kensington bag and if you’re cautious with colour in your clothing then a bag is the way forward to bring your outfits to life.
2. Sutton Biker Boot
These boots are a lesson in how to sparkle in an edgier way. Look closely and you’ll see the neutral dogtooth check fabric beneath which is embellished with gold crystals. Simply add a cosy sweater and leather leggings.
3. Shoreditch Platform Court
Channel Dita Von Teese in patent platforms with a skinny ankle strap adorned with the Kurt Geiger eagle head. You will be surprised how comfortable these are despite the height, thanks to the magic of a platform sole.
4. Rainbow Pierra Platform Sandal
Too many rainbows? Never! The platform is back in a big way and sandals are not just for summer. Wear these bold beauties now with tights and a sparkling dress, then with bare legs and flared jeans or a little white dress in summer.
5. London Over-The-Knee Boot
Stomp your way through winter in these OTK stretch boots. The extra thick sole will give you height with stability and with chunkiness on the foot, legs appear slimmer. Picture these with an oversized jumper dress and long wool coat.
6. Silver Kensington Sandal & 7. Silver Shoreditch Bag
For a daintier sandal which still packs a punch, try the crystal encrusted silver Kensington sandal. And yes, you can wear these with tights this season, and they will look equally at home in the warmer months for a summer party look.
Add the mock croc Shoreditch textured bag in shining silver and together these accessories will dress up your favourite jeans and top all year round.
8. Lainey White Trainer
Everyone needs a simple white trainer in their shoe-drobe and the all-white simplicity of these lends themselves to adding a casual twist to any look. The detail in the quilting and the eagle head on the back elevate these trainers to new levels.
9. Olive Eye Slip-On
Flats needn’t be dull and these slip-on mules with eye embellishment in gold leather are anything but boring. Comfort and style? Yes, please! Look out for the green velvet version in-store too.
10. Cream Tegan Boot
Cream boots are having a moment and when combined with a thick, lug sole, they are the fashion-forward choice for winter. Balance out your chunky boot with a puffer coat and roll-neck knit.
