It's time to see red and jazz up your wardrobe; Bags Of Style.

Byline: By Lisa Piddington

THERE is something undeniably sexy about red patent - bright and bold, shiny and luxurious, if you want to pretend the credit crunch hasn't affected you then this is fashion's way of showing off.

It's perfect for adding a dash of excitement to a wardrobe bursting at the seams with black (after all, you know what they say about women who wear red shoes) and is a great way of adding instant glamour.

Patent is a big trend for the new season and this most striking colour just adds a little more interest, whether you want to step out in style with a standout pair of shoes or show off some striking arm candy.

For fashionistas with a bulging bank balance, the design maestro Marc Jacobs updates his A-lister favourite for the new season.

The oversized Hobo costs pounds 335 from Harvey Nichols.

Marks & Spencer keeps bank managers happy with this over-sized red patent bag - a recession-busting pounds 25 from the new Per Una range.

Miss Jean Brody gets a modern update. From Dorothy Perkins these peep toe Mary Jane's feature double buckle detail and cost a tempting pounds 30.

Dune had this great collection of red accessories, featuring a modern mix of patent and mock croc. The belt is pounds 28, the clutch is pounds 70 and the buckle shoes are pounds 85.
