The Style Files | The Street Style Addition

Ever wanted to run over and ask someone where their bag was from when you’re wandering around the city? Same. The street is the undefeated champion of inspiration with every passerby offering up a new trend or styling possibility. So we’ve pulled together our favourite new season accessories as seen on the street, and don’t worry, you don’t have to chase us down to find out where they’re from.


This pink Nunoo bag is teaching us now to update our pastels for the incoming cold seasons. With two straps and wearable across the body or carried as a micro bag, it’s an all-day all-night option. Imagine this butter-soft suede number with jeans and heels, we’re in love.


Update your classic leather handbag for something a little more eye-catching. Winter whites are very much a thing and a handbag is a perfect way to get involved, cutting through the noise of any outfit to steal attention. With the signature Coach clasp, classic shape and clean look, this bag will match everything, quickly becoming a firm favourite and generating some envy. 

Obviously brown leather for autumn is a given as the rich nature tones cycle back into season. We’re updating ours with the hue-blocking trend and little details. The simple things like the stitch detailing and logo pendant on this Coach Whipstitch go a long way to making this bag a head-turner.


Ready to try something different? A bucket bag is a great alternative to the classic rectangular shape. In five different colourways from bold yellow to black, the Kate Spade Dorie is sure to brighten up your morning. The secure inner pouch makes it commuter-friendly and ready to be filled with all your essentials without changing the shape or appearance of the gorgeous outer made up of the iconic spades. 


But it’s not all about bags we’re also lusting after layered necklaces. Scandi style is dominating at the minute, especially in street style. So we’re loving minimalist jewellery layered up to adorn any neckline. Copenhagen’s Anni Lu Jewellery has got this sorted, creating simple and beautiful pieces with small pops of colour and heaps of character. Layering a choker with a longer pendant chain is the simplest trick to add a little extra sparkle while maintaining your minimalist cool.



The Marc Jacobs Snapshot bag is everywhere. Coming in almost any colour you can imagine, this iconic bag is customisable to every person and every style. But we love it in the bold poppy red, in keeping with the new seasons trending colour palette of bold warm tones. Wear it across your body with a baggy jumper and trainers or dress up with a cute mini and heels, this bag is for every occasion, every person, every season. 


Simple doesn’t mean boring, and we certainly don’t want boring. There are so many little details and exaggerations that can turn a simple bag into a total dream, and the Coccinelle Ambrine bag is a perfect example of a few of them. The beautiful peony pink contrasted with the graphic black buckle lets it sit on the line between delicate and edgy, keeping one toe in each style to let it match whatever mood you’re in that day. Simple enough to compliment any print, or wear with all black and let the bag do the talking, for an easy pick we’re looking at this beauty. 


Sometimes it doesn’t have to be about print or colour or shape, sometimes it’s all in the craftsmanship. A beautifully made, classically designed bag will never let you down, it’ll be a life-long companion brought out again and again and always looking right. That’s exactly what the See by Chloe Joan Hobo bag is: a lesson in flawless craft and timeless style.
