Want. Want. Want.

When it comes to spending your hard-earned money on a designer handbag, you obviously want a style that will last you a lifetime (at least to justify it to yourself!). However, it's also nice to have an it bag that's so trendy, it might as well have its own Instagram page.

Like the Chloé Nile shoulder bag. It's not new season, granted, but as Who What Wear points out, Net-A-Porter describes it as having been posted over 46,000 times on the 'gram since it launched last year.

Seen on the arms of countless celebrities and influencers, from the Duchess of Sussex to Song of Style, the bag has quickly reached a cult status.

With its gold hoop handle and leather body in covetable shades (rust, pale blue, red and white are just some of my favourites), it is the perfect marriage between bohemian and sophisticated - it is the embodiment of the Chloe girl.

The original large and medium styles were the hit of 2017, whilst this season, it's all about the newer mini version, cementing our love for tiny, tiny bags.

You've probably seen it all over the 'gram, but if you haven't, then a few quick style notes: wear with a floaty printed dress, or a corduroy suit for a look that's very OTM (that's of the moment btw).

Penny Goldstone is the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire, covering everything from catwalk trends to royal fashion and the latest high street and Instagram must-haves.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
