Trend update: Colour-block handbags
BY STYLE EDITOR, ON 24 JUL 2014 17:02 SHOES & ACCESSORIESCOMMENTS
Colour blocking is no longer limited to the bright pop-art colours of spring/summer. The trend is here to stay, so think ahead of the game by investing in one of our camel, black and white colour-block bags which will take you through the summer season and still be on trend for colder temperatures.
The classic yet modern aesthetic of the bags will be perfect partners with knitwear and even suiting this autumn/winter.
For day, pick one of our large tote bags which has plenty of room for all the necessities we women need. These Fiorelli and Call it Spring tote bags in classic beige and black colourways will work with plenty of outfit combinations. Pair your tote bag with jeans, a striped t-shirt and flat pumps for a chic daytime look with a Parisienne edge.
The tote bags are suitable for many occasions and will work for both casual and smarter affairs. But if you prefer your accessories to be a little more compact, try a smaller tote with caramel accents and neat double handles from J by Jasper Conran. These mini-versions make the perfect accessory paired with a pleated white midi skirt and nude sandals for smart summer workwear.
Everyone has that little bag stored away for those occasions when style rules over practicality – be it a cross-body or clutch bag. Our small colour-block Warehouse bag caters to both tastes with a detachable long strap, making it not only chic but versatile. We love it worn with summer whites – think white jeans and a white cotton blouse for day, or a classic blanc dress for warm summer nights.
The key to dressing with colour-block accessories is wearing clean, minimal combinations to offset the bold pattern, make sure the overall look isn’t cluttered and ensure a chic result.
