Junior Fashion Editor Alexandra Venison answers this week’s most pressing fashion questions, from the ultimate clutch bags to festive glam and stylish fringing from head to toe.

Q) With event season well under way I am looking for the perfect clutch bag, which will go with all of my outfits. I wear a lot of black so something with a bit of colour or a novelty element would be ideal. Help! 

A) You’re in luck, clutch bags come in all different shapes, sizes, colours and themes this season and are ready to add something special to your outfits! Either opt for an investment piece like this Charlotte Olympia perspex clutch, which you will treasure from season to season, or hit the high street where you can find bags galore on the likes of asos.com or in New Look!

Q) I’ve always been a massive fan of fringing, so seeing that it’s making a comeback I’m all excited and ready to find some fresh pieces to add to my growing collection.

A) We love a bit of fringe too and luckily we’ve found two amazing pieces to get your heart all a flutter! From suede to leather in a rainbow of colours you’ll be spoilt for choice. To start off the purchasing frenzy we advise opting for black and working your ensembles from there.
