I don't know if you have noticed but metallics are everywhere. Dressed up and dressed down. If you love them but aren't ready for the Silver or Gold Trouser trend then a metallic bag or belt is a really easy way to tap into this one and won't date.
A silver or gold leather bumbag or cross body bag (which is how they are worn) is a great piece to bring metallics into your everyday wear. They look great with everything from brights to neutrals. Here I have styled the gold bumbag with a striped Lowie jumper, with a blazer for a smarter look, with a denim jumpsuit (Seventy + Mochi) and with a sequin skirt and silver t for a full on metallic look ( and yes that is Trinny!)
The Woven padded leather bag is definitely has been getting a lot of love s well. This one works well as a chunky clutch. I love it that way, but also has a cross body strap, which is so practical. Here are some of the people who have been seen rocking this bag lately! This bag is a great price at £89. Pictured @vicks_kl @aliashstyle @keira_scottsamuel and @kazzstyle_
The Leather Top Handle bags in gold, silver or pewter are fab. A great little clutch, perfect for Christmas party outfits, but I love dressing mine down for everyday too and wearing as a cross body bag. I take this bag on holiday too as it is a great all rounder. A lot of my lovely customers have used theirs for weddings and one bride had this as her bridal bag on the big day!
The little bronze pleated cross body leather clutch caused quite a stir when I launched it on Instagram. I love the grab handle on the top of this bag but it also has the option of being cross body. I love this bag for a night out. The bronze is a bit more of a subtle metallic than silver or gold handbag and this is the kind of bag that you will wear for years (nights out, Christmas parties, holidays).
The Gold Mini Woven Leather Bag £49.50 is a great little clutch or cross body and perfect for a night out. There are several metallic striped bags thd bright version as seen on @elizas_everyday ... in brights or in neutrals (gold and bronze) and different sizes. You can shop all of the metallic striped bags here.
If you are looking for a bigger bag, the metallic leather shopper comes in gold, silver or bronze and is is great everyday chuck it all in bag or a work bag. This is an unlined classic leather shopper. It has a firm base and a small inner pocket. Pictured below. Metallics go with everything and this bag is no exception!
Metallic belts (the Obi wrap belt) as seen on @aliceintgelookingglass and the gold or silver knot belt @stripeycoral @styleupwithabby is another great way to add metallics to your look. The obi is a great statement belt and looks fab over a dress or jacket. The knot belt can be worn over a dress or on jeans or trousers, or seen here belted over blazer.
