Whether you’re a fan of the high price statement designer bags, or of taking advantage of high street prices, a bag can make or break an entire outfit.
There are as many styles of bags as there is any other fashion item, meaning finding the right bag is just as important as finding the right coat, dress or shoes.
Some styles of bags remain classic and have been for years; a quilted leather clutch bag, as made desirable by Chanel, is a fashion essential and should feature in every woman’s wardrobe. Other kookier designs come and go with the latest trends, such as the slouchy back packs currently having their time in the spotlight as 90’s fashion makes a comeback.
One look at the latest collections will tell you this seasons bags are all about color. Block neon satchels are huge right now, and this mini satchel by Topshop is the perfect way to incorporate this trend into your look easily. It’s perfect for a night out with the girls teamed with a sleek dark dress and killer heels.
There’s nothing worse than going shopping and your bag getting in the way of your much-needed browsing. This is where tote shopper bags are perfect. Available in leather or cotton material, they can express your personality in a really subtle way.
This light pink small patent tote bag from J by Jasper Conran is a great ladylike take on the tote bag, and will transform any outfit into a classy ensemble. If you want something a bit more casual and kooky, consider a cotton tote with a slogan or image. This unicorn slogan bag is a perfect way to show off your sense of humor alongside your great sense of style.
Of course, the bigger the bag, the bigger the statement you can make. Designers are producing some really strange yet amazing massive bags, with Chanel leading the way once more with the hula hoop bag. While that particular catwalk shocker will not be available to purchase in store, why not take a look at some of the other huge bags on offer for spring/summer 2013?
Finally, for something really adventurous, take inspiration from the spring/summer 2013 catwalk
and invest in a see-through clutch or handbag. Showcased by a huge range of designers including Valentino, Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney, and Burberry Prorsum, these are the must have designs this summer.
The high street is already catching on to this trend, so check out this pale pink see through floral grab bag from Floozie by Frost French, or this American Apparel clear backpack to stay ahead of the trend.
