Just when we thought that accessories couldn’t get any bolder: handbags, clutches and all of the bags in-between are becoming more eccentric and over the top than ever before.
A lot of the time we don’t want to be carrying around a huge tote or even a cross-body. If you don’t want your outfit to be outshined by your handbag choice then try opting for a smaller clutch with more subtle detailing. This metallic evening clutch adds a bit of colour but doesn’t overdo it on the size front.
Sometimes it isn’t necessary to step out of the box. This AW17 bag trend proves that a more structured and uniform shape doesn’t have to be boring. Although they look quite small, box bags are actually quite spacious as they don’t have all of the pockets and compartments that come with ordinary cross-body bags. They’re big enough to fit all of your essentials in and will make your most casual outfits look like you made a lot more effort.
At the complete other end of the spectrum are round bags. They may not be as structured as box bags but they’re just as effortless and add a lot to a simple outfit. This Chloé shoulder bag is one of our favorite options and it’s the perfect colour for autumn too.
If bold prints are a little too out there for you, then these crocodile leather bags will be perfect for you. Sometimes it’s nice to choose a bag with a more subtle pattern to it. Not overdoing it on the pattern front definitely has its perks. You can match these crocodile bags with practically any outfit without worrying about them clashing. We stock them in four different colours so there’ll definitely be one to match your wardrobe.
At the moment we’re loving plait, chain and faux fur bag straps. If your handbag is a little on the plain side then it’s worth looking at strap accessories to make it stand out. Yes, strap accessories are a thing. This handbag from the Carpisa Penelope Cruz collection is sensible enough for work but is perfect if you want your bag to stand out in the office.
Step away from the flat, mundane clutches and step out of your comfort zone. This season people are adding a little sparkle to their outfit in the way of sequins and embellishments. Opting for a bag that’s a little more 3D is an easy way to make your outfit stand out throughout the Christmas party season.
