It’s not easy to always have perfectly matching accessories for each outfit, and matching your shoes to your handbag is so your mother’s generation.  If you’re like me, you may attend several different types of events in a day, so versatility in your fashion – and especially your accessories – is a must.

This season, there’s no shortage of great bags and shoes that transition from work to play and go with pretty much everything!  Snakeskin is a great neutral that works for a number of occasions.  Keep the design of the bag simple, like this clutch from Diane von Furstenberg:


Another great go with everything look is metallic.  Whether in shades of bronze, gold or brushed silver, it looks fabulous with so many different styles.  I’m a huge fan of bronze, as it can take on a very neutral or taupe color depending on what you’ve paired it with.  But I’m really inspired by these metallic pumps!  (similar here)
