Autumn is nearly upon us, which is a great excuse to go shopping. Now is the time to treat yourself to the best designer bags and a few new outfits.

The classics return

It is especially pleasing to see some of the classic looks becoming widely available again. You really cannot beat a classic Chanel 2.55 style bag to finish off your outfit. It looks good and is just big enough to fit everything you need, including your Smartphone, in. There is a reason this particular design has never gone completely out of fashion since it was reintroduced into the Chanel line in 1955. If you have never owned one, this is the year to buy one.


Stylish totes

If you need something bigger, do not worry, because there are plenty of large bags available. The oversized bag trend is on the wane, but a lot of retailers are still stocking totes. They are really practical and make especially good work bags.


Dainty party bags

It won’t be long before you need to go shopping for a party frock and a nice bag to go with it. As usual, there is a good selection of clutch bags available. But, these are joined by dainty clip top pouch bags and drawstring bags dangling from delicate chain straps. Very pretty, delicate and perfect for complementing a sparkly or flowing party dress.


Practical waist bags

From the looks of things, bum bags are back. These slightly odd-looking items are actually very practical. The last time they were in fashion, most designers aim seemed to be to create a secure bag for travellers. As a result, they did not really worry too much about making them look stylish. Those waist bags were quite bulky and made from utilitarian materials.

In 2018, that has all changed. Modern designers have taken the basic design and enhanced it considerably.

The best ones are made from high-quality leather and sit on a waist strap that makes it look like you are wearing a stylish belt. Usually, you choose where the bag sits on the belt-like strap. A lot of the catwalk models wore theirs on the hip. This is practical and a great way of ensuring that the bag does not spoil the overall line of your outfit.

Take a look at this fashion article to get an understanding of the different ways you could wear a bum bag. I am pretty sure that when you do, you will be pleasantly surprised and be tempted to buy one.
