To Have And To Hold: The Handbags To Invest In Now

A new handbag can be just the accessory required for an instant wardrobe refresh, so don’t be afraid to succumb to temptation…

If your accessories wardrobe is already aplenty, buying a new handbag can seem rather indulgent; however, invest well and it is a key piece to wear on repeat for many years to come.

When it comes to handbags, there is no such thing as ‘the one’. We need a multitude of options, for various sartorial scenarios: from cavernous totes to cart laptops to the office, to dainty clutches which just about house your phone, bank cards, and lipstick for nights out. As for the perfectly chic day bag – which fits the not-too-big-not-too-small brief – there are myriad options from under-the-radar names to designer heavy hitters.

From cross-body bags which you can effortlessly sling on, to retro shoulder bags, and on-trend bucket bags, there are many silhouettes to ponder. Also, carefully considered details like chunky chains and signature hardware which make for day-to-night wearability. There’s always room for another classic hue – we’re talking a melangé of browns or timeless black – but if you really want to make your new piece of arm candy stand out from the crowd, opt for of-the-moment green or a spring-ready pastel.
