Spring is here, and summer is just around the corner. We all know what that means – it’s almost vacation time! Right now however, the weather can still be very changeable so versatility is key when choosing your colourful accessories. From compact cross body bags to spacious statement totes (you never know when that extra cardigan will come in handy) we’ve rounded up our top picks to keep you looking and feeling your best this season.
Great for: Popping out on errands, Don’t quite need a bag.
Compact yet spacious, this is my go-to leather wallet when I’m heading out to run a few errands. My phone slips in the front pocket and inside, everything has its place from cards and cash to coins and keys. The cherry in the Sangria is a very simple tool: a pen. Even in this digital age, it’s still so useful and I’ve lost count of the number I’ve gone through! (Pro Tip: If your mywalit pen runs out, drop a line to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll pop a new one in the post).
Great for: Slipping into a jacket pocket, Minimal days.
This colourful and simple style slips into a pocket or small bag like a dream. On warm spring days when you want to stay light it’s the perfect companion, staying ultra-slim even when stuffed. Just slide in an ID and a couple of essentials and head on out!
Great for: Daily use, See everything at a glance.
If you stuff everything but the kitchen sink in your leather wallet (guilty!) then this is the style for you. A central zip pocket divides the inside space into two camps. I like to divide my (too many) store cards into the most frequent vs less frequent use. It’s also really useful if you’re a regular traveller using different currencies. Thanks to the colourful zip around design you can open it up and see everything in an instant. Plus it doesn’t bulk out when it’s full! An all-round hero.
Great for: Timeless style, Lots of space.
This sumptuously soft leather tote bag is my new obsession. It comes in bright-as-a-summer’s-day colours and carries pretty much every essential you can think of. In this changeable weather you can throw in all your usual must-haves plus an extra layer for if it turns chill. You’ll still have lots of room left over and a beautifully slouchy silhouette! (The bag, I mean. Although I really should work on my posture…)
Great for: Making a statement, Stripy style
I love stripes. They’re fun, wearable and never go out of style – what more could you ask for? This colourful cross body shows off its textured style with skinny stripes of premium suede and leather. It’s the perfect size for essentials and versatile enough to take you from day to night! I like to add it to weekend outfits for a touch of statement style.
Great for: Everyday bag, Shopping with friends
I’ve already sung this colourful bag’s praises a couple of times on the blog – and I’m going to do it again. This style is my go-to leather cross body. Its simple design goes with any outfit and adds a welcome pop of mood-lifting colour. See what else I’ve said about it here. So there you have it – all you need to stay stylishly organised this season! Not sure which colour to pick? Find out the best shades to suit your personality here.
