THE MUST-HAVE BAG

If you’re looking for a quick fashion fix for 2016, this is it. Chic, sleek and versatile, go hands-free with the season’s most coveted accessory

When it comes to buying accessories, handbags are my weakness (apologies to my shoe collection – I love you dearly, too). That said, I choose to invest wisely. With only six bags to my name, each style serves a different fashion purpose, be it a sharp, mean-business tote (ideal for when you need to impress) or my go-to evening clutch. My absolute favourite? The cross-body. It’s the most liberating and comfortable design you can go for. This M&S Collection version is the perfect size: big enough to store an iPad and make-up bag, you can enjoy the luxury of going hands-free without having to sacrifice any day-to-day essentials. At just £35, it’s a must-have.
