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.

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.

It was back in March when the fashion world introduced us to the autumn/fall/winter fashion trends and bags.

But now it feels time to give you the edit of the styles, which, if I’m honest, are difficult to summarise.

Do you wear the bag or does the bag wear you?

A question you may have never asked yourself or been asked. However, at a recent event, the above question was posed and an answer was considered. And the one time we felt, when the bag wears the outfit, is when you go iconic and wear a bag with heritage, even when it has been given a modern reinterpretation. So, if you are looking for such a bag to dominate your outfit, head to one of these heavy-weight designer brands.

Prepping for wedding season and need a bag or two!

‘Tis the season to brace oneself for the upcoming weddings on the horizon and the mandatory hit the bank balance will get. I’ve sourced three outfits which I’m going to invest in not just because they work for the special events but they also guarantee lots of wear elsewhere. Thankfully the weddings have a relaxed but elegant vibe where anything starting from boho chic is acceptable. However, wedding season economics means I need to see if I can get through the summer and make these three outfits work with one bag. Challenge on!

Pretty in pink right now

Up here in the northern hemisphere, I’m seeing more and more pink appearing in the stores for this spring and summer. The good news, is you don’t need to channel your inner Naomi Campell as seen at the Versace S’22 runway show, looking fabulous in a pink trouser suit, to channel your inner fashionista. This much pink up top and below the waistline may not be the preferred choice for everyone. The alternative is to grab a pink bag and still look pretty and on-trend this year. Here’s a quick edit from some cities in Europe where there’s lots of pink bag inspiration for you, with lots more over on insta @thebagwhispers_.
