A new season calls for a new handbag, isn’t that right, ladies?
Every fashionista worth her salt will fawn over a glorious new bag simply because they have the ability to transform a wardrobe. Even in the most basic of outfits, a stand-out bag or clutch can give your look the “wow factor”.
However, if you’re shopping on a budget, fret not – you don’t have to spend thousands on a designer tote to ensure you find a quality handbag.
Instead, why not hit the high street? Our favourite stores have plenty of beautiful designs, coming in an array of colours and luxe fabrics. So, what are you waiting for?
We’ve rounded up this season’s hottest bag trends to help you know what to buy. Happy shopping!
Work The Ladylike Trend
This season, channel your inner Jackie O by working the ladylike trend. The A/W13 catwalks were awash with pastel pink and powder blue coats, which the former First Lady would be proud of. However, if you don’t want to look too sugary sweet, then why not dip your toe into the trend with a delicate messenger bag? Opt for this season’s hottest hues – blue or pink – or work a neutral, such as nude.
Pick Up a Bucket
If teeny messenger bags aren’t your thing, then you’ll be pleased to see that roomy bucket bags are here to stay. The trend for these beauties has been simmering for a while now, and the high street stores are already jam-packed with bold, beautiful buckets. Make like the ever-so-chic Kate Bosworth by opting for a slouchy, suede number, or go all-out with studs and tassels.
Bigger is Better
If you like to pack everything, including the kitchen sink, then this trend is for you. Oversized totes and shopper bags are a fantastic, practical work staple as they allow you to look stylish, while fitting everything from lippy to lunch right in. This season’s totes come in an array of fabrics and winter colours – we particularly love the oxblood leather versions.
Add a Clutch to Daytime Looks
The eternally-chic clutch bag is the go-to evening choice for millions of stylish women across the globe. However, why not work it like Victoria Beckham by adding a clutch bag to your daytime look? Choose from a myriad of colours, textures, fabrics and sizes. This season, there is a clutch to suit every woman, and there also happen to be plenty of bargains left over in the summer sales.
