Good handbags, especially those that come with a hefty price tag, should really last a lifetime with the right care, so it’s no wonder that we invest in them. However, as we once again start to benefit from the better weather that spring and summer bring, we can afford to be a bit more frivolous with our choice of bags since we no longer have to consider first and foremost whether the bag is waterproof or whether it will prevent our phone batteries from freezing and dying! A pretty bag can be the perfect way to channel a trend, lighten your look and add a bit of fun to your outfit. With spring and summer, there are loads of lovely bags out there from backpacks to clutches that will great with your style this summer. For some inspiration, you can check out some lovely bags from the high street right here.
Bags that are in light coloured hues can be difficult to pull off in wintertime what will all the rain and mud, and suede is basically a no-go area from October to March! So for a bag that you truly could not wear easily in winter, you should check out this gorgeous number from H&M. In the softest powder pink shade and of course in suede, this beautiful shoulder bag will look great with whatever you decide to wear it with. The dainty gold chain and chic metallic front fastener make this a truly feminine bag that screams style. You could wear it with a black top and jeans, a suit for work or even with a stunning dress to a wedding and it would blend seamlessly into your style. Priced at £39.99, it is an investment piece that with the right care will last for the next few seasons.
Another bag that looks much more expensive than it actually is, this camera bag from Accessorize comes in both cream and navy. As we’ve said before, we are fans of the floral trends that tend to sweep the high street at this time of the year, and this beautiful applique bag emulates this to perfection. This compact bag leaves enough room for your phone, purse and perhaps a lipstick, which is the kind of lightweight summer trend that we love! Nobody wants to feel weighed down if they can help it when they are out about in summertime, so with this chic little number, you can be sure of looking and feeling great!
Finally, for a supremely feminine bag that is practical too, we absolutely adore this satin butterfly backpack by Miso. With a main zip, 2 inner pockets as well as a front compartment, you can really go out with summer colours. Thanks to the satin fabric, it really gives this bag the coveted sports-luxe vibe, and is a fun nod to the ostentatious floral and garden designs that we see everywhere. For a pretty and practical bag, this bargain version will be great!
