A little ‘Something for the weekend’ feature covers the stand-out bags spotted on instagram. This weekend’s inspiration for fashion bag lovers is a range of bag shapes that have earned attention for their colour and enduring appeal. Investing in a bold, bright-coloured bag, bought on a whim whilst skimming instagram can bring regret; the bag arrives and looks different in shape and shade, and now you’ve got to return it. Avoid this hassle as here are my top 10 bags of colour for AW22/3 that don’t carry eye-watering price tags. Be brave and go boldly towards that pop of colour with confidence.
And in no particular order, with options from designers around the world, here are the bags to dazzle this season:
Bag of sparkle
The Solene Mini rhinestone bag in rose from the designer Cult Gaia. Price US$398.
By day, the Nico Ostrich top handle and crossbody bag in camelia by Coccinelle. Price £315
All that shimmers
By day or night, Beau bag in blush and rose gold split from Farrah and Sloane, Price is AUS$349 and available in lots more colour ways.
And if you prefer a bit more structure, from Florian London, this metallic mini Meghan bag is in silver. Price £245.
Green with envy
A bag of colour isn’t just for the weekend – see how the double-strap leather bucket bag from & Other Stories works. Price £125.
Bold in blue
The Gabine belted hobo bag is back with a few tweaks in cobalt blue. From the Singaporean brand Charles & Keith. Price £109.
Zest for life
The vibrant yellow Ada leather crossbody bag from the women’s fashion brand Jigsaw in the UK will add brightness. Price £160.
And enjoy an extra saving on the iconic Sam bag from Kate Spade. The fiery orange bag has 29% off now. The price is US$244.
When you need a base black bag but don’t want to compromise on colour – the Pearly Lip leather small tote bag with accents of red is from Lulu Guinness. Price £225.
Last but by no means least
Who would have thought a white or ivory bag would add a colour pop. But when in a backpack style you make a statement, especially with the eye-catching croc print buckle backpack from Smith & Canova. Price £146.
