If I had to pick a single fashion accessory that I was allowed to take with me to a desert island, I would pick an arm candy. Small bags, big bags, medium sized bags…I want them all. I like to tell myself that I need a bag for every occasion.
We’re here to show you the hottest bags for this season. We’re tempted to buy all the designer bags here but we have to save money for food, you know. So, we’ve listed high-street alternatives that are just as fashionable and, the best part is, that they are a quarter of the price. You can thank us later!
Chanel’s Gabrielle Bag
Chanel bags are everyone’s weakness and, while the ‘Classic Flap’ bag will forever remain imprinted in my heart, I have to say that the Gabrielle Bag has come to a close second. It’s easy to wear, a statement piece in its own and you can easily sling it across your body for that laidback look!
Zara is your best bet to come close to a designer dupe. Here’s our favourite and closest version of the Gabrielle bag.
Various designers, from Alexander Wang to Altuzarra, came out with their own version of this season’s bucket bag. Cinch bags are the new hot trend. These are amazing for just stuffing all your things inside and hurry out of the house.
Several high-street stores have their own version of the bucket bag. We’re loving this Aldo number from ASOS .
This is, by far, my favourite trend! This bag is such a statement piece. All the attention will be on you and the way you handle your bag!
High-street alternatives are slowly emerging for this trend. ASOS has a few options and this one is our top pick!
They’re probably the most impractical bags of the season. But that’s ok. We’ll do anything for the sake of fashion! One word of advice, if you have an iPhone Plus, double check if your phone will actually fit in the bag!

Zara shows us how miniature bags should be done!
Fashion is nothing in-between this season. If you’re not sure about tiny bags, why not try the oversized trend. The biggest downfall is that the larger the bag, the more things you tend to put in it. You might end up carrying your whole office in your bag.
We’ve found the perfect oversized bag for you at an incredible bargain!
