So sang Blur in 1995 and when it comes to town versus country, country styles are classics. And now more than ever country fashion styles are coming to the fore – well who knew we would be getting to know our own countryside more than ever this year – thanks to lockdowns giving us a new appreciation of the staycation. So when ‘in the country’, what bag style should you consider for country life? Think texture! Here are the bag styles and five brands for some stand out country living.
Fairfax & Favor
Based in the English countryside, in Norfolk, this British lifestyle brand has what you need and their Conker Croc mini Windsor is priced at £285 and comes with a detachable tassel and shoulder strap offering options to take you from day to night.
The mini Luna shoulder bag from Crosslow London is the bag to get you through the winter. The brand brings you two strap options and has a lovely long fabric strap shown here, which will go over the chunkiest of coats. This leather bag is £250.
Wilby Vegan bags
For those looking for an ethical fashion accessory, Wilby has a collection of tartan tote bags starting from £65. There are 3 sizes to choose from as well as four styles of tartan. Country shopping sorted.
This forest green leather croc crossbody is known as the Brit-Luxe shoulder bag, price £90. This bag also comes in a mini micro size, just coming in at £65. This bag has lots of personality, not just from its statement buckle. Other colours are available, but this one feels fitting.
Another ethical option for you, from Bottletop, the round Helena is made from enamelled gold ring pulls. Handwoven by a group of artisans in Brazil, this bag is popular because it comes with two straps; wrist one for the clutch bag look and a longer one for crossbody. This isn’t your typical country life bag but one for when you are staying somewhere that little bit extra special. Price £225.
Every type of bag can work with your country fashion style; from croc leather handbags to sustainable crossbody bags. Whether you’re sporting a tweed jacket or denim skirt, these 5 brands have got your style covered. And between now and Friday 27th November, expect to save 20% of the prices, as most are taking part in the Black Friday sales. Hope to be back out, roaming and strolling the fresh air soon!
