This Trending Summer Bag Is Polished, Timeless and Whispers Wealth


As far as bag trends go, you’ll usually find me sticking to a classic black style. Offering timeless appeal, my elegant pouch has never let me down. This season, however, my eye has been wandering, and I’ve found myself fawning over an equally elevated handbag trend that I’ve been seeing everywhere lately.

Up and down the high street and across my favourite designer brands, the two-tone handbag trend is the new-season style the industry is backing right now. Typically designed with a neutral base such as canvas or raffia coupled with accents in either black, leather, or, depending on the main shade, cream, two-tone styles often feature a contrasting shade on the handles, pockets or base of the bag.

Available in myriad designs that include compact crossbodies, oversized totes and neat clutches, the emerging handbag trend celebrates refined, classic style and offers something fresh for the new season. And if you’re not sure how to style it, many fashion influcencers have already shared images of themselves carrying theirs.

I’m particularly into the straw styles that make summer dressing all the more fun, but I’ve also spotted versions crafted from supple leather and suede for a more formal alternative.

From DeMellier’s Capri tote to Mango’s sleek crossbody, read on to discover the two-tone bags I’m considering right now.
