5 Pumps & Purses To Accentuate Any LBD

Despite the fact that we're already seeing decorated trees and lights, Thanksgiving is really the official start to the holiday season. It's less than a month away (scary), which means you better start lining up all of your festive wares. But a girl could go broke buying a new frock for everything from Turkey Day dinner to a New Year's Eve bash — and you've got to save some coin for all those gifts, too.
Instead of throwing yourself in a tizzy, try accentuating that little black dress of yours (we know you have one) with a new set of pumps and a snappy clutch. And unlike that new, bright, red dress, you can rock these essentials throughout the holiday season without anyone knowing you're a repeat offender.
One of our favorite Brit imports L.K.Bennett (the only store in the U.S.) has added a few new pairs of stems and accent bags to its holiday collection. The shoes are 100% leather and feature a cushioned-toe box for added comfort — because we know you'll be tearing it up on the dance floor at least once. The Menaudiere clutches are a nod to British heritage and luxury and continue to be a staple in L.K.Bennett's collection each season.
Considering this cheeky boutique is a favorite of Kate and Pippa Middleton, we wouldn't be surprised if the dynamic duo is spotted wearing the metallic gold Malibu pump or Nina snakeskin clutch to one of their seasonal soirées. Click through to see these must-have holiday essentials from L.K.Bennett.
