What better excuse than ‘winter is coming!’ to pick yourself up a new handbag. The criteria for an everyday bag is this; medium-large in size, neutral colour, comfortable to hold and most importantly, stylish. A timeless handbag compliments any outfit. If a corporate style is your vibe, aim to a leather handbag with structure to ensure you look smart and can carry everything you need from a laptop to notes. For a more urban look, try something unstructured like a tote or boho style cross body bag. Shop these looks at www.zurii.com.au

The perfect boot is a key a component in any winter wardrobe. They are definitely an investment, something that is worth spending the extra money on. Find the right boot, and you will be set for years to come. When shopping, the most important thing to note is to find something comfortable that you feel confidant in! Neutral colours like tan, nude and black will give you the variety when it comes to matching boots with your winter wardrobe.
Whilst countless celebs are seen rocking thigh high boots, if you are usually in an ankle boot, stick to what you are most comfortable in. However, try mixing things up colour wise. A lot of us lean towards black, because it is a staple colour and is easy to wear! However, push yourself to mix things up this year, try camel, mushroom or an elephant grey.
