Monday 08 October 2012
1. Jas MB for Urban Outfitters
This striking orange number, part of a collaboration with Urban Outfitters, will rev up any look. Good for the party season too.
2. River Island
This textured tote in a variety of materials is a bit punky, a bit gothic and eminently practical, with short handles and a cross-body strap for hands-free.
Neon pink is the one shade you can rely on to be both fashionable and fun. If your winter wardrobe is looking a bit austere, this fluoro leather carrier will give it a bit of a lift.
Tomato red is one of the colours of the season and this mini-bowling bag is a great statement accessory. Carry it enever you're having a dressed-down day.
This unstructured hobo bag is a perfect half-way house between elegant and casual. The pleated leather panels at the front mean it doesn't feel too slouchy.
This structured bag is nostalgic yet modern, blending vintage, ladylike chic with up-to-date clean lines. The blue tone stops it looking took severe, and it's roomy too.
7. Miss Selfridge
Forget your prejudices and trust us when we say miniature leather rucksacks are cool again. This animal-accented number has plenty of Nineties revival attitude.
8. Kurt Geiger
This leather and snake-embossed calfskin bag combines two on-trend hues – white and deep rusty red. Choose from two straps, or go without for a clutch bag.
9 . Accessorize
A tote that combines classic cool with one of the shapes of the season. The gold shade should see you through to spring as the metallic trend looks set to stay.
10. Banana Republic
Red is big this autumn and this boxy bag provides a glamorous accent against wintry clothing. It's elegant but fun, with a modish part-chain handle.
