3 Of The Best Handbags

Handbags are something we tend to invest a little more in, so be sure you get your money’s worth with a bag that offers functionality, longevity and timeless appeal. Think about choosing one that injects a bit of personality into your look, be that via colour, texture, hardware or retro references. On the high street, Zara, Massimo Dutti and Maje offer good-quality leathers, and if you’re in a position to spend more, Marni or Tod’s would be top of my wish list. Here are three great handbags to see you through this season and next.

Online retailer has a great selection of leather handbags that are accessibly priced. I’ve fallen for this half-moon, mock-croc shoulder bag in tangerine. It will work whatever the season, adding a strong style statement to even the simplest of outfits.

At weekends I only want to wear mini bags – just something big enough to hold my essentials. It gives my shoulders a rest after a week of carting around ipads and notebooks and whatever else. I like the shape of this buttery yellow box bag, and the gold chain, which elevates it to a piece that could be worn for day or evening.

This is such a grown up-looking handbag, I’m not sure I’d ever feel mature enough to wear it, but I love it. It reminds me of handbags my mother owned when I was a child. The shade of red is gorgeous, and the suede texture makes it beautifully tactile. I would match my lipstick to the bag for a really retro look.
