Winter’s icy fingers may have made their way into our wardrobes, turning pretty floral dresses into thick knitted jumpers and sexy strappy sandals into sturdy leather boots, but there’s one accessory we can use to fend off the season’s sobering influence: the mighty handbag! This autumn/winter, the must-haves come in all shapes and sizes, but all are set to bring some fun and colour back into our otherwise quite pasty lives.
Transform any outfit with a burst of neon. The latest styles are radioactive yellow or citrus-zing lime, and the best size to go for is the micro shoulder bag with a long chain. Worn on a night out, your arm candy is sure to turn heads.
Get down to business
The briefcase is big news this season, as demonstrated by Ralph Lauren. But if that’s a bit too grown up and serious for you, cast your eye towards the latest satchel designs for a hint of corporate intelligence, perfectly blended with fun.
Your destiny awaits
Futuristic style is the way to go this season: let anything shiny, metallic and studded take you there! A clutch with a space-age twist like the purple envelope design by Henry Holland, which you can get your hands on by shopping the range of designer handbags from Debenhams, is perfect for this trend.
Go large – and then double it
Bigger certainly is better when it comes to your winter handbag, as demonstrated by top designers such as Chloé and Alexander Wang. Never again will you need to ask yourself “do I really need all this stuff?” A more relaxed approach to handbag contents, here you come!
