  1. The Office

Choosing a bag for work is an important decision. There are a lot of factors to consider; how long is your commute? Will you be walking far? However, the Backpack has to be the main contender for this particular occasion. It is a bag favoured by commuters everywhere. However, backpacks don’t just have to be functional and practical; they can be packed with style.

The Michael Kors Marley Drawstring Backpack; a fashionable and functional bag that would be perfect for those long commutes and stuffy underground journeys. With two outer and four inner pockets, there’s room to spare, and, along with the adjustable shoulder straps, this bag is the ultimate work wear accessory, remaining functional and practical.

  1. The races

This is an event where style is of great importance and practicality…well, it will just have to wait. A bag that is desperately cool and on-trend this season is the Bucket Bag. A lot of high-end brands are catching on, but the ultimate version for me is the Sophie Hulme Mini Bucket Bag in brown suede.

This stunning accessory by Sophie Hulme is a work of art. However, this bag is not just aesthetically pleasing; it includes an inside pouch and an adjustable shoulder strap for added comfort. Wear with statement heels for an eye-catching look on race-day.

  1. The Eveningmcqueen silver clutch-min

Bags for evening events need to small and compact, but still glam. They need to have that touch of sparkle but be easy to hold in the hand. We all know that for this occasion, it’s the Clutch. In particular, the McQ by Alexander McQueen Bullet Kicks Clutch.

The Bullet Kicks Clutch is made entirely of cork, and is a grunge-glam alternative to the average clutch. With a gritty, silver texture and bullet bar wristlet, this bag screams attitude, staying true to the brands outlandish, rock ‘n’ roll theme.  It also features an inside zip pocket for extra storage so, fear not, this edgy clutch has ticked all the boxes.

  1. A Long Weekend away

A weekend bag is something that everyone should own. They exude sophistication, tradition and can also usually fit in aeroplane overhead storage. But seriously, they’re important. A perfect weekend bag is the Barbour Waxed Holdall.

This Barbour Holdall is a beautiful accessory with classic leather handles and branding. The bag is clearly big enough to fit in everything you could possibly need for a long weekend, but another fantastic feature is the classic Barbour waxed cotton outer. You really will feel right at home at a country spa-hotel with this traditional weekend bag by Barbour.

  1. An Interview

Interviews are obviously important, and outfits are sometimes equally as important as what comes out of our mouths. Your choice of handbag should be something sophisticated and stylishly simple. A shopper or tote like the Armani Jeans Brogue Bugatti Shopper is the perfect option.

The Brogue Bugatti Shopper is a smart and elegant way to carry your daily essentials, as well as any formal documents you might need for an interview. With two top handles and patent leather panelling, this bag exudes class and style. Having room to spare inside, the Brogue Bugatti Shopper is the perfect bag to take to an interview; simple and chic with a no-fuss factor.

  1. A Day Shopping

When we go shopping, whether it’s with a particular item in mind or just for a stroll around the shops, we need to be comfortable. After all, who wants to be walking around a bustling city centre with an uncomfortable, heavy bag? The perfect bag for a day Shopping is the classic Tote. Vivienne Westwood have long been known for their beautifully designed and sometimes eccentric bags, and the Frilly Snake Tote is a shining example of that

With an entrancing snake design and frill trim, this Westwood accessory is a thing of beauty. With the brands iconic orb gracing the centre of the bag, this is an ideal companion for a long day of shopping.  The bag includes a removable and adjustable shoulder bag that will provide extra comfort if needed, and extra inside compartments ensure a sound amount of storage space.  As far as bags go, you can’t go wrong with a Vivienne Westwood number.

Primer on Straw Clutches

In the summertime, leather can feel a little out of place. The thick luxe fabric which works well in the colder months needs a light and airy upgrade. One of our favorite neutral bags is made of straw. While the material may seem simple, these bags are nothing but stylish.

Pair one with your favorite sundress without having to worry about clashing colors, have a little fun with a straw bag and jeans, or dress up shorts and a tank with a little summery flare.

The Michael Kors Santorini Medium Raffia clutch with a metallic trim is sophisticated enough for a stylish get together and yet still perfect for a walk around town. It’s the perfect size for all your summer essentials and the texture adds something special to both a day or nighttime look.

Badgley Mischka Florentine Straw clutch

For a fancy straw purse, you’re gonna love the Badgley Mischka Florentine Straw clutch.

We love the shape for an elegant party and the metallic color goes well with just about everything.

Loeffler Randall Lock clutch

Women’s Fashion Advice – If Fall Were a Fabric it Would be LEATHER

There is nothing more in now than leather, sorry vegans (there’s always faux!). Leather purses, leather boots, leather jackets, etc etc.


Don’t pack up your warm weather wardrobe just yet. Adding leather allows you to wear your favorite spring looks right into autumn. Toughen up a sweet summer dress with a leather jacket like this Michael Kors snap-tab collar jacket. Or add some knee-high boots and a structured blazer to your favorite cotton dress for instant fall glamour.

Men’s Fashion Advice – End of the summer sales

If you are the kind of guy who likes great quality clothing, but doesn’t want to pay full price, then now is the time of year to start looking for items to add to your wardrobe. The “end of the season sales” can be the best time to stock up on essentials for next season or just pick up that piece of clothing that you have had your eye on, but didn’t want to top dollar for.

For example, at bergdorfgoodman.com there is a classic denim blazer by Michael Kors that is located in the men’s sale section. It has a notched lapel, a welt chest pocket, two flap pockets, a two button closure, and comes in a versatile indigo cotton denim. This is a great casual item that was originally $495, but has been marked down to $222.
