The Handbag You Should Own This Autumn

With the brisk weather approaching, one summer trend is staying in style to keep you warm

Clutched in the hands of designers, stylists, and editors, an unusual handbag blended in with the lady-like totes, leather cross bodies, and bold belt bags this season. Interestingly, this handbag had new features that freshened its image to fit into 2018. With new colourful patterns, different sizes, and exciting new styles, it couldn’t go unnoticed. For yet another time, woven handbags are a trend, which means it’s the perfect transitional accessory for the autumn season.

Given that the weather is going to be changing sooner rather than later, we would suggest incorporating this trend into your wardrobe before it’s too late! Be sure not to go too summery though; opt for more structured styles and darker tones and swap your sandals for chunky trainers or cowboy boots as the season requires.
