The Statement Bag

Summer won’t be round for much longer and here at SLINK HQ we’re getting ourselves ready for the exciting change-over from floral and pastel trends, to this year’s winter style. Currently strutting down the A/W 2013 catwalks are the usual ‘pretty in punk’ trends which focus mainly around the leather jacket – which plays a key piece every year.

However, to our surprise this year’s ‘walk on the wild side’ sees a different twist to our usual winter wardrobe. Our eyes are drawn away from the hats and scarves and heavily focus on accessories, mainly statement bags. Finally, every girl’s main accessory is claiming the spotlight, and with vibrant colours and bold prints there’s only one lady who’s at the top of these styles.

Think statement, think Westwood. Vivienne Westwood currently has a range of gorgeous new bags and purses that are ideal for the upcoming trend.

This Derby New Exhibition Jasmine bag has taken the classic tartan print and given it an uplifting twist. This bag follows the upcoming trend perfectly, worn with a plain outfit or clashed with other prints, either way all eyes will be drawn to this beauty – a wise investment.

If you prefer colours to prints, this striking, Divina Rasberry Red Leather Grab bag will receive just as much attention. The luscious red fabric adds a touch of glamour to any outfit, especially whites and blacks for full impact. All eyes will be on you when you’re out and about, with the same question on everyone’s lips – “where is that bag from?”

With a wide range to choose from, you’re sure to find the perfect bag for you this season, which is sure to make you the envy of all your friends.
