5 Bags You Need
Collecting handbags could be considered an art form; curate the right pieces and you’ll have the perfect accessory for every occasion. The magic number? Five. We’ve pulled together the top five bag types that every woman should own (in a range of shades and sizes too, so you’re sure to find your new go-to arm candy).
1. The Classic Tote
The clue is in the name – the classic tote is the ultimate bag shape that we simply cannot live without. It accommodates all the essential PWKs (phone, wallet, keys) with plenty of space for the ‘just-in-case’ items. Stick with a solid colour to match everything (and we mean everything), or make it your feature accessory with a splash of colours or patterned print.
2. The Bucket Bag
The bucket bag – Simple, roomy, versatile. Worn on the shoulder or across the forearm, this off-duty bag in works-for-the-office-too shades and prints, doesn’t compromise on attitude or comfort.
3. The Pouch
The take-me-everywhere bag. Small enough to ensure it won’t weigh you down, spacious enough that you don’t need to compromise on the necessities. Our tip – make sure it fits your largest ‘don’t leave home without’ item (usually your phone) and continue the selection process from there.
4. The Crossbody bag
Go hands-free this season with a cross body bag. Perfect for those days when you’re on the move – say goodbye to the juggling act of trying to hold your phone, coffee and wallet. Classic and comfortable, the crossbody bag will take you from brunch to bar, while keeping you looking stylish and under control.
5. The Wristlet
Your best accessory when all you need is the essentials. Compact in size, the sleek wrist strap will make sure that your belongings never stray. In a myriad of colours and fabrics – this shape ticks the simple, yet stylish, box.
