Grab a colourful bag this summer
Inject some colour into your summer look with a hot new handbag.
This season is all about colour, but not all of us are keen on stepping out head to toe in fuchsia.
So, if you want to embrace the trend for brights, without blinding your friends and colleagues, an oversized bag in a bold tone could be the answer to your prayers.
Bright colours are so great for summer because they look so much better in bright sunshine, and nothing is going to be any sunnier than the Crocus shoulder bag from LK Bennett.
A classic tote shape, this large bag has a hidden zip pouch, which is totally removable, making it the ultimate in functionality.
Plus the bright yellow shade will add a splash of colour to any outfit, taking you effortlessly from work to play.
But if yellow is a step too far, the mid-pink and aqua bags in the same range are slightly toned down, while maintaining that fun, summer vibe.
If the navy number is more your thing you are in luck. Not only is this conservative shade ideal for the office but the red stitch detailing make it the perfect complement to a pair of bright red heels.
Large totes are the best bet if you've got loads of stuff to cart around, I love the Nicole bag for this reason too, but if you're a lady who travels light, it doesn't mean you should miss out.
The Peony clutch bag is small enough to contain the essentials without looking like a glasses case – always a concern with the really tiny bags.
It comes in a gorgeous coral pink colour and bright yellow, as well as the standard tan and black.
And a handy detachable strap means that you can use it as a clutch or a shoulder bag depending on your outfit, making this a definite summer staple.
