Now that’s what I call colour!

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

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.
