Tired of tan? Although undeniably chic, it holds true that Mulberry’s best-selling Alexa in tan was a record breaker, but it’s probably been purchased by three quarters of the fashion population. So, for the fashion doyenne’s we are, we decided to detour from the tan collective and covet a whole new hue.
Enter Proenza Schouler’s leather satchel in midnight blue. In all its leather and moody sapphire gorgeousness, we love the dull gold clasp and pocket detailing, which feels totally fresh again for spring. Whether you choose to carry it on your shoulder or your arm, this leather luminary is worth giving an a limb for.
But costing the equivalent of one month’s salary, we’ve searched high and low to find the perfectly priced accomplice which won’t leave you feeling blue, or with an ocean-sized hole in your bank balance, for that matter.
ASOS ought to be named S.O.S, such is the amount of times it’s helped us Save On Style. This vintage style leather satchel in cobalt blue is our lower-priced favourite, offering luxe and style at a fraction of its high-end counterpart’s price.
A spot brighter than the Proenza, ASOS’ satchel taps into this season’s vivid colour trend perfectly, delivers a dash of crayola to brighten up a simple outfit. And at a mere £70, the only blues you’ll have this season will be hanging from your arm.
