There’s a new style of satchel bag in town. It’s already hit the catwalks of big name designer’s such as Chloe and Altuzarra, your high-street shops such as ASOS and Topshop, and now finally straight into your wardrobe’s to rock this autumn/winter 2015. The new style of satchel bag is much smaller and more compact than the original satchel and offers more of a ‘going out with just a few key things’ style of bag, rather than ‘taking everything but the kitchen sink’. It’s now much more rounded at the bottom as it’s basically a semi-circle with a flat top surface; so it rocks more of the fashion forward handbag vibe, that also happens to be a little bit practical.
This new style of satchel bag really is the newest and most bang on trend item to have in your wardrobe’s right now. It offers a different dimension to an outfit, as well as an alternative texture such as: leather, suede, quilting and even a bit of faux fur. Being on trend isn’t ever the most important thing when it comes to style, however if you’re really deliberating whether to take the plunge, then take inspiration from Olivia Palermo who really is rocking the new satchel bag at London fashion week.
How do you feel about the new style of satchel bag? I like some variations, but I think they have to be done very tastefully and be in a colour that will last for a long time, not just a 5 second product that’s just in for this season.
