This clutch bag is so chic you won’t believe it’s not designer

  • Just in time for pay day

    Hands up if you agree this has been THE longest month ever? Ok who am I kidding, every month feels like a century when you spend your pay check in about five minutes.

    However, pay day is almost here, so there’s no harm in having a little look around for a treat, non? As I was browsing the Charles & Keith site this morning, I couldn’t help but notice their bag offering this season is pretty strong.

    Minimalist clutch bags, chic totes and just a little bit of novelty here and there, it seems like they’ve got all the trends covered. And the best thing is the price points are amazingly low considering everything looks designer.

    If you’re not aware of the Singapore-born brand, CHARLES & KEITH was established in 1996 by Charles Wong and Keith Wong with the goal of providing fashionable footwear for chic, modern women. A couple of decades on, and you’ll be hard pressed to find a fashion influencer’s feed that doesn’t feature C&K. I’m adding the three bags below to my shopping list, and here’s why.

    The minimalist clutch

    The below clutch is so simple it’s possibly the most versatile clutch you could ever buy. Team it simply with a denim shirt and beige wide leg trousers during the day, and a black satin slip dress at night.

    The multi-purpose bag

    Why have one bag when you can have two is my motto (well not really but you get my drift). This is cute as it is, but both bags are removable so you can wear them separately. Glitter was everywhere on the catwalk from Victoria Beckham to Saint Laurent and Gucci, so there really is no excuse not to embrace it this season.

    The elegant tote bag

    In my opinion, an elegant tote bag is a wardrobe staple, especially if like me, you carry everything around from your laptop to your lunch box. This chic flap tote in the colour of the season will stand out beautifully against a camel coat or navy trench.
