Ah, the Great British high street—we’ve got a lot to thank it for. Between its affordability and sheer convenience, it’s become our primary way to shop, and when it comes to trends, we can always rely on it to deliver accessible takes on runway pieces. More often than not, scouring the stores can uncover hidden gems and turn unexpected pieces into overnight successes, and with a new season of clothes and accessories making their way into stores, there is plenty to be excited about for the season ahead.
Marks and Spencer has had a particularly good run of transitional pieces and standout accessories in the last few months, and we’ve found the latest piece in demand on the site, and it looks far more expensive than it’s high-street price tag.
The brand’s faux-leather crossbody bag is already proving to be an across-the-board hit with all of the editors in the Who What Wear office due to its style, practicality and price. An easy-to-wear crossbody that would easily be mistaken for designer for under £40. What more could you ask for?
Just when we thought we were sold on the classic black style, we spotted Evody Onesi and Sam Briones in the equally chic tan and green colourways, making your only decision which colour to go for or whether to settle on all three. Thanks, M&S.
Style Notes: Proof that a camel bag goes with everything in your wardrobe, we especially love Evody’s pairing of a plain tee, Breton knit and flares.
Style Notes: Next time you reach for a black bag, try swapping it for khaki green. The seasonal shade is less severe than black and helps to lift a colourful print.
Is this not easily the chicest high-street bag you’ve seen to date?
Just imagine the options. With dresses, blazers, slouchy knits, crisp shirts, T-shirts and jeans, leather biker jackets. The list goes on.
This canvas and leather style is perfect for all seasons.
I need no convincing to snap this crossbody up.
How chic is this chocolate brown, moon-shaped shoulder bag?! And real leather too.
The most stylish, practical purchase you’ll make this week.
Throw everything in and go.
If you told me this was designer, I’d believe you.
With a crossbody strap and a top handle, you get 2 bags for 1 with this style!
