When it comes to coordinating your bag and shoes, the natural tendency is to go matchy-matchy, but that look is always very safe and lackluster. A little less literal is the route to take. What we want, especially for an occasion like a party, is to punctuate the pairing with personality.
Never has a brand gone from blah to bam as quickly as Gucci under the new direction of Alessandro Michele. The departure of Frida Giannini was welcomed by both the industry and consumers, along with longtime Gucci devotees, and it was a brilliant move on the brand’s part appointing their Senior Accessories Director, as this is a house known for their accessories.

They literally go with everything. When all the shades of the spectrum are included in your bag, it will pick up whichever you want. So don’t hesitate to take the color plunge.
