We all know that finding the right bag can take any outfit up a notch or two.
But aside from an aesthetic point of view, a bag has to double up and be able to store all your essentials. After all, whether it's crossbody, a shopper or a tote, it is the one item of clothing you keep your most prized possessions in so you've got to get it right!
To help you stay ahead in the style stakes, we've rounded up the hottest bag trends which dominated the SS19 catwalks.
The iconic saddle-shaped bags shot to fame early last year thanks to the global fashion brand, Dior, showcasing them on their spring/summer 18 catwalks. They made an even bigger comeback on the more recent spring/summer 19 runways and, as seen below with this red piece of arm candy, we can certainly see why.
To get in on the trend, look no further than this vintage-style saddle bag, which also comes in bright pillar box red. This quirky bag is just the right size for your everyday essentials, whilst the crossbody strap leaves you hands-free - the perfect essential for a night out-out.
2. Perspex bags
Say goodbye to losing your beloved lippy or trusty pen at the bottom of your handbag never to be seen again - transparent bags are here to save you! Models at Mary Katrantzou were all spotted rocking the bag trend and we want in.
Jump on the bandwagon with this clear striped perspex bag. This offering comes with a smaller second bag inside - meaning it's perfect for those who aren't too keen on the idea of flashing all the contents of their handbag.
3. Crochet bags
Channel a beachy, bohemian vibe like models on the SS19 Monse catwalk with beige and nuetral coloured crochet bags.
Rock the trend with our woven tote bag which comes with a sporty stripe. Whether you are strolling through town, exploring a new city or relaxing on a beach, it's made for keeping your essentials close to hand when the sunny weather hits.
