Whether you’re off to a fancy dinner or a long afternoon walk, we’ve got it covered! We talk you through three different styles of the accessory of the season and how to wear them…
The Cross Body
The cross body bag is all about comfort and usability. The perfect accessory for a casual afternoon stroll in the park or for a spot of shopping, these styles sit comfortably over the body allowing you to be hands free. Pair with some casual skinny jeans for a comfy chic look and experiment with different sizes and colours.

Most of us are familiar with the classic tote. Popular with city workers or shopping lovers, this style is all about being roomy. With plenty of space to fit your essentials and more – these handbags can store your paperwork, files and even a tablet! If a work bag is what your after – look for a tote with plenty of compartments to organise your essentials in a colour that will compliment your work attire. For a day out shopping, team with ankle boots and a tea dress for a cool and casual look. These styles are large , so bear in mind they will make you look smaller.
Popular for big nights out – from trips to the theatre to anniversary meals, the clutch is your go-to bag for occasion dressing. If your wearing black – opt for a clutch with a pop of colour, similarly wear stick to dark colours in your handbag if your dress does all the talking!
