Season after season, we’re told what’s in, what’s ‘It’, what’s an absolute must have. And that list is long! So how do you choose what’s good for you?

Reason, a budget (sometimes), and style advice from all those effortlessly stylish women who featured in magazines indicate that an investment in a classic is the best way forward.  Take for example this season’s handbag trends. Of-the-moment Autumn/Winter ’17 trends like fur and micro bags aside, this season it’s about ladylike design and structure.

And we’d advice you to look no further than Michael Kors or Coach, both of which have some deliciously pretty, new handbags in their current collections.
