No matter how you want to turn up the impact of an outfit, just a few tweaks will do — reimagine a dress as a tunic, play up a clutch, or draw attention to your shoes.

Rethink Existing Pieces

Above: At Marcus Luengo, a leather dress is reimagined as a tunic. Take inspiration from this runway transformation and use a long dressshirt as a dress, or pull a skirt up to below the collarbone as a maxidress.

Shoes! Take the first step

Go the extra mile in styles that are as comfortable as they are striking.

Clockwise from top left:
Strappy Sandal Pumps: Opened toe shoes are formal and elegant; in a bright, bold colour they are functional yet luxe.

Heeled Sandals: Get a leg up on summer with slim ankle straps that looks sophisticated in a goes-with-everything shade.

Patent Leather Mules: Slip on these super comfortable numbers with a pair of jeans or a workday skirt. 

Gladiators: When a stiletto is too much and flat is too little, a slightly lifted heel feels just right for this style.

(Convertible) Clutch! Grab and go-go-go

Go hands-free with summer’s sunniest accessory, a clutch is the perfect arm candy, and makes any outfit happier!

Clockwise from top left:

Mellow Yellow: A nod to the 1960s pill box with a fresh colour and convertible handle. 

Large Buckle Envelope Purse: A calming white outfit balances the intensity of this eye-catching orange full of optimism.

Woven Two Tone: Show off this taupe clutch which is an elegant and updated version of a classic, beachy straw purse.

Round Laser-Cut Pattern: Add interest to an otherwise simple look with this piece which is just so on point!
