PUT YOUR STYLE ON RED ALERT

If you buy one purse for fall, make it a covetable bucket style. It’s the easiest way to usher in the new season

It’s time to trade in the love-worn straw basket you’ve been toting all summer for a sleek new shape. Whatever shade you choose, a roomy bucket purse ticks all the trend boxes without compromising on space. Nodding to the cult designs favoured by the Instagram style-set, choose one with a structured body with hints of gleaming metal hardware for a seriously luxe finish, or go for a statement handle like this one. A handy interior zip keeps your essentials secure throughout the day while an adjustable shoulder strap gives the option of going hands-free. Pair yours with a navy trench coat and tapered pants for a nonchalant city-chic vibe.
