The Three Bags You Need This Summer
Discover the bags every girl needs this season.
From ‘70s-inspired silhouettes to evening-ready clutches, we spotlight three key bags that will complete your SS17 wardrobe...
The Bucket Bag
Practical and chic, the bucket bag combines a vintage-inspired silhouette with a roomy interior – ideal for transporting the essentials on your daily commute. Opt for a grained leather finish in a hothouse hue, playing up the retro vibe by teaming it with flared denim and off-the-shoulder blouses.
M&S; RRP £85, Outlet £42.50.
The Statement Clutch
Summer evenings call for look-at-me accessories, and an embellished clutch is the perfect new-season investment. A crystal-adorned style will be an opulent addition to a brocade shift, while a studded crossbody instantly toughens a lace dress. Alternatively, add dimension to a classic floral dress with a bag decorated with 3-D appliqued flowers.
Ted Baker; RRP £109, Outlet £69.
The Raffia Tote
Do like ‘60s icon Jane Birkin and make a straw tote your summer essential; it will freshen denim and beachwear alike. Wear a circular crossbody with retro-inspired mini skirts and tees in the city, or tote an oversized raffia bag alongside a bohemian kaftan at the beach. We think Alexa Chung would approve.
Kurt Geiger; RRP £65, Outlet £39.
