Urban chic: Dior’s new accessory collection is built for the working woman
Work chic is one of the top and most consistent fashion trends to nail year round, and Dior’s range of accessories by Raf Simons for the autumn-winter 2014-2015 collection has certainly done just that. Full of satchels with bulky handles and stylish but ergonomic flats, the bright colours will be sure to brighten up any working day.
This twist on a classic shape is the epitome of practical chic – the red tiger print on crocodile skin is classy yet fun, and it can easily accommodate a laptop as well as your every day essentials. The metal feet provide structure, but will also protect the bag around town. Use this bag to shine through a working uniform of black and grey.
These adventurous pumps are sure to turn heads, but can be paired with almost anything. The ankle strap is angled, meaning these can be worn with tailored trousers and won’t look half smothered. The pointed toe and kitten heel are bang on trend, but the bright blue brings a new, young dimension to this shoe. The thick sole also equals maximum comfort.
Leather gloves are a must have during the autumn-winter season, especially during the drive to work. A dark winter overcoat is a token piece, but deserves some brightly coloured accessories to liven it up. The contrasting colours of these gloves will be sure to turn heads, without looking too garish or summery. The pastel of the pink can transition through any season.
Statement jewellery doesn’t have to be left at home on a working day – the choker style of this necklace makes it suitable for every day, as well as evening, wear. Worn with simple colours, particularly black, this necklace will compliment any office outfit, and can be left on for post-work drinks on a Friday night.
