It’s that time of year when the novelty of cosy coats and scarves has worn off and the prospect of boots and layering for another couple of months is less than thrilling – but have you ever considered that stale mid-season period is actually also the perfect excuse to mix up your handbag repertoire?
Admittedly we could find any excuse to do that…
Whether you’re looking for a classic tote, a bang-on-trend clutch (no, we’re serious), or a practical crossbody, January provides the perfect conditions for a little experimentation when it comes to bags.
You’re not too busy rushing to another event to be lugging about something oversized, and the surprisingly mild temperatures mean that it’s not too cold to be toting anything with ice-cold fingers that need to be stuffed in pockets. The start of a new year is a great time to go slightly rogue and plump for something you wouldn’t tend to dare.
