The five handbags you need to own


The right handbag can truly make an outfit. The style, the size, the colour – all factors that come together to create the dream bag. But in truth there is not one ‘perfect’ handbag, but many. What you’re wearing, the occasion and even something as simple as the weather can have an impact on what bag you swing over your shoulder on any given morning.

We are firm believers that a girl can never have too many gorgeous handbags, but here are what we consider to be the five styles that are an absolutely necessity in every wardrobe. Meet our ‘Hero Bags’.

The Roomy Tote

We all need one of these lifesaver bags. Large enough to hold everything from you wallet and keys to a laptop and a packet of baby wipes. Essential for work, days out with the kids and travel, a large tote bag is the most practical handbag you will ever own but this doesn’t mean you have to compromise on style. We love the classic Louis Vuitton Neverfull which is veritable Tardis of a bag that always seems to have room for one more item.

The Crossbody

This is the bag of the moment. Everyone from Chloe to Gucci has a gorgeous cross body to offer and the high street is flooded with fantastic options too. Compact and stylish, it’s perfect for when you want to be hands free and don’t need to fit much in. Whenever we are out sans enfant, this is our go-to.

The clutch

In the evening it’s all about the clutch. Any colour or style will do as long as it you can tuck it neatly under your arm in a bar or at a party. Have fun with these and play around with colour and embellishment to add a unique touch to your outfit.
