Highstreet Handbags That Look Seriously Good

about 1 month ago

You don't always have to go designer to get the look when it comes to bags. These days, the high street is killing it with on-trend bags with exceptionally elevated details. Here are my current faves.

Tote Bags Are Back


Ok so not entirely, it's still the age of the mini bag BUT designers as high-end as Dior have been reinventing the classic tote shopper recently and thankfully, Topshop have created the perfect one for people that don't want to drop $2k on a shopper.

I love both the print and the colour on this tote and can imagine it fits EVERYTHING in.

Use colour to look rich


One reason I love fall is this colour. It's divine.

The details on this bag from Aldo give it serious designer vibes (obvs. inspired by Gucci) and I love the choice of top handle or cross body.

I instantly imagined this teamed with a perfectly coordinating blazer, like this chic AF Frame one.

Be careful with the snake


Snake print is everywhere but it's really easy to get wrong and look tacky. I love this one from French Connection because it's actually textured, which instantly makes it feel and look more expensive. Plus, it's a super cute little size for the evening and I like the muted colours, which keeps it subtle.

Surprise!


Anne Klein really surprised me with this pick.

If you read my post yesterday about the lessons learnt so far from fashion week street style, you'll know I'm all about the bold prints and statement colour. This bag wraps these trends up in one.

It looks elevated and exotic and it's legit perfect for fall. Looks double the price too, at least!

The right white


It's hard to get white accessories right and they are HUGE for fall so I've been on the hunt for good ones.

This Vince Camuto bag has pretty much nailed it. It's got a little subtle snake, which I appreciate and then lots of additional detailing which makes it feel expensive. Just remove the front branding tag off the top handle to make it slightly more minimal and I love it. Again, a big fan of a top handle and cross-body option.

This style should be worn with this exact outfit.

All praise H&M


Adding the label "accessory pro" to their list of accomplishments, H&M continues to nail it this season.

Click this bag properly and zoom in on the beaut texture of the fabric (also available in a gorgeous soft pink too). The gold hardware detailing is CHIC and the price is hard to fathom. Loves it.

Minis!


If you're after a new mini then look no further. How cute are these!?

I like the black best, but I'm still into the burgundy, especially for fall.

Finally...


From Nasty Gal, this velvet crossbody is giving me life. I love the crushed texture of the fabric and I'm obsessed with the Chloe-inspired ring top handle. Wear it on the crook of your elbow and it's dinner/drinks perfection.
