Today’s Saturday Special sees the return of ‘Something for the Weekend’ where you have my favourite five bags spotted on instagram over the last week. And why do these bags reach parts that others don’t? Because they offer you the right combination of colour and fashion in one. Here’s your summer handbag inspiration in 5 glorious steps!
There were lots of shocking neons on the SS’19 catwalks. However, if you’re fairs kinned or have red hair this isn’t the end of the colour spectrum you want to be heading for. So big shout out to Gum where your neon can work just as well as an accent! Take the Fluo Matt bag here. The good news is Gum offer the neon pink strap with most of their bags!
You don’t have to go for stand out colours to get noticed. Mlouye has colour and shape to catch the eye. In summer hues you have the Pandora half moon handbag and for the fashion forward, the Naomi belt bag. Hands up for either of these! Special summer occasion sorted.
Who said ‘never brown in town’ in summer? No-one! This is how you take one of this season’s colours and make it work on hot days. You can’t keep a classic down; say hello again to the Addicted Bucket bag from Parisa Wang in NYC! Yes, you can get it in this season’s PVC but the richness of this brown will have reaching for this bag again and again.
If you’re not shaping up, why not belt up and not just at festivals. Cinch in your waist with a belt bag and if you want to add a touch of style, head to Perrin of Paris. L’Amorphe comes in various colours but I love this powerful green with the silver details. Accessories sorted and hands free, let’s go!
This season’s woven bags are some of the most imaginative I’ve seen. However, if you have a formal special occasion in the summer diary but you don’t want to forget your fashion trends, check out Mehry Mu from Turkey – don’t worry you don’t have to travel via Istanbul to get your hands on one of the ‘Fey in the 50s’ bag – they are stocked in various places in the US and Europe. And look, this bag even works on a casual day. Evet!
So that’s all folks! The bags on instagram rocking a fashion trend of the SS’19. Whatever is in your summer diary, you’ve got lots of styles and colours to choose from. And now’s you can stand out by shaping up when it comes to your accessories. Here’s to the long summer days!
