When you are in the middle of a Siberian cold snap, it is pretty impossible to think about soft pastels and whimsical florals despite being in the middle of Spring. However, that doesn’t mean your fashion appetite should be ignored until we start to see a thaw and hopefully residual winter temperatures are replaced with a strong surge of seasonal warming that will allow us to break out our new spring wardrobes, playful prints and pastel hues. Until then, however, there is another key trend that doesn’t need to be locked away, that can be invested in online now (while we wait indoors suffering from serious cabin fever) and that can give us serious outfit inspiration and appease our shopping needs.
The micro but rising trend that has claimed the mantle of Insta-fashion story of the month despite the suffering temperature and omnipresent shaggy outerwear is THE bag; most notably, the eye-candy bag. The structured geometric bag, the mini bucket bag, the mini hoop bag and lastly the wicker bag all defined the papped street style looks, with cult LA brand Staud and Turkish label Manu Atelier leading the way.
So who said fashion has to wait for the season to catch up? Take this opportunity to feast your eyes on some of the coolest styles around that are bound to rank up your social score.
