This season’s must-haves, according to Beatriz Moreno de la Cova
From bohemian tote bags to party sandals (best styled with glittery socks), discover the bags and shoes stylist Beatriz Moreno de la Cova is coveting this spring.
01 Colour blocking

Colour blocking is set to be a key trend this summer. An easy way to get started is with accessories. Choose bags and sandals in saturated colours – they work well with neutrals, all-black outfits and simple wardrobe staples. Create more daring combinations by mixing colourful pieces.

Natural selection

Beatriz Moreno de la Cova's favourite combination? "Pink, red, orange and purple". Generally, the weather and nature of the season we’re in inspires the colour palette of our wardrobes: deep greens and burgundy in winter, pastels in spring and saturated pigments in summer. The best tip? Build a capsule wardrobe around four key colours.

When it comes to footwear, silver is the colour of the moment – seen on every style from wrap sandals to shiny maxi platforms, patent leather mules, cowboy boots and bejewelled shoes. At first glance, silver shoes might seem difficult to style, but in reality they work with practically everything. For a winning look, keep it simple with jeans and a white shirt.

03 Heavy metal

"I love metallic leather accessories with glittery details and even crystals. A silver bag is the perfect accessory to go from the office to a party without going home," explains stylist Beatriz Moreno de la Cova. The future and technology have inspired designers this season, giving way to metallic bags and silver sandals, which have become a huge hit. This trend also works for daytime: previously reserved purely for parties, a little sparkle is also sneaking into office looks now.

05 Folk favourites

"After many seasons of the cowboy look reigning on the catwalk, this year the bohemian mood turns to folk, with references to Navajo and Ottoman prints, carved leather details and braided leathers", says Beatriz Moreno de la Cova. Her style tip to get it right this season? Swap classic cowboy boots for clogs that you can wear with socks from spring right up to the hottest summer days.

Drawing inspiration from traditional Aztec and South African culture, this season sees an array of bags featuring multicoloured embroidery, fluorescent colours and geometric fretwork. The result is bold, bohemian styles you'll want to wear all day long, from Navajo-inspired shoulder bags to patchwork totes.

It’s hard to overstate the impact on fashion of popular series on streaming platforms like Netflix. The latest favourite? Wednesday. The Addams Family character’s style has inspired some of the most sought-after accessories this season, from bejewelled mini-bags, to creepers, fishnet stockings and chokers.

07 Black meets metal

"This is the combination that best reflects pure French chic," says Beatriz Moreno de la Cova of the all-black outfit with metallic accents. "It's the perfect 24-hour pairing: with jeans and a black or white T-shirt during the day, and a silk shirt and blazer in the evening.” The key is to invest in quality basics, like a minidress, blazer or tailored suit, then add some rebellious allure with a rigid bag with metal hardware, or silver studded sandals.
