Well, even though the weather might be a bit hit and miss at the moment, we are certainly getting our wardrobes ready for summer! Check out some top picks from our upcoming shoes and bags shows, as selected by our fashion accessories buyer Sharon…
The cross-body bag is perfect for the summer season whilst travelling, on holiday or just as a more relaxed look for the summer months. Check out our fab Today's Special Value Kipling Azou cross-body bag (see picture above). It has fantastic organisational sections and comes in a selection of five great summer colours, and of course there's also the classic black option.
If you still want all the organisation you get from the Kipling cross-body but would prefer a smarter leather style, why not try The Sak's Fontana leather cross-body bag. It's got two pockets on the front and lots more inside.
If a more boho chic cross-body is your thing then The Sak's Tolowa leather cross-body bag (left) is perfect to be worn with gorgeous maxi dresses all summer long!
With animal prints and leathers still being huge on the catwalk right now, why not add this trend to your wardrobe by accessorising with it? Some of the snake effect leathers that Jack French have on offer are a more subtle way to take on this trend. We just love the Jack French Knightsbridge snake effect frame bag (left) and the Portobello snake effect shopper.
On-trend bag shapes
The Satchel! This style has been a huge trend from autumn/winter 2011 that has continued through to spring/summer 2012 and looks to be even bigger for autumn/winter this year! Get your version of this look with the Jack French Curzon suede bag – this can be worn as a shoulder bag as well as a satchel with the detachable cross-body strap.
Get back to school with the back pack! This shape has been seen on all the fashionistas this season. Get your own sophisticated leather version of this shape from Tignanello with their leather multi-pocket backpack (left).
Crazy about shoes!
Of course, it's not only handbags that we're crazy about, we've got some fantastic footwear shows coming up over the next few weeks too! Skechers are back on June 27th with a fab range. Look out for the Prospects lace-up trainer. It's a sporty-looking pump that comes in a gorgeous range of pastel and candy colours for summer.
We also love the Skechers Beach Read Diamante sandals. They have pretty diamante detailing on the straps, are perfect for holidays and available at a great price at under £20!
Marta Jonsson is also returning to QVC on Sunday 17th June with her fabulous designer shoe collection. Make sure you check out her leather bow detail slingback heels. They're so cute. They have a peep-toe style and are great for everyday with soft-step padding under the foot and a mid-heel height. They're also great for that special occasion like a wedding or garden party.
We also love the Marta Jonsson T-bar snake print dressy sandal. Faux snake skin is a key material for the coming seasons and T-bar sandals are really on trend too. The stunning design brings a vibrant flash of colour too, with colour blocking being another key trend for this season!
So, make sure you put the dates in your diary and don't miss our fantastic shows coming up!
