Asos Tassel Handbag

An ornate bag is always a welcome addition to the fashion-obsessed woman's closet. It can literally brighten up a basic outfit on days when you don't want to go all-out on the clothing front, but still want to look stylish and put together.

Pamela Love "Iris" Earrings in Silver and Brass

If there's anything to cop for the season to come, it's a pair of statement metal earrings. They're easy to style, they're timeless, and they're chic in a minimalist way. We love this pair by Pamela Love, the perfect balance of edge and femininity.

Isabel Marant "Poetty" Shoes

Dancing shoes have to be pretty. They can't be ugly, or you wouldn't really want to step into the dance floor to strut your stuff. Choose a sparkly pair of classic pointy heels - we guarantee these will only keep popping up on your trend radar, no matter how risky a purchase they may seem!
