5 Must-Have Leather Bags for Every Fashionista

🕤 5 min read 

Every fashionista needs a collection of handbags to finish off their Insta-worthy outfits. But with sustainability in mind and fast fashion in the bin, we think it is best to keep that collection small and savvy. We have created a fool-proof list of 5 must-have leather handbags that even the fashion-obsessed cannot disagree with. 


The Classic Black Shoulder Bag

Pure Luxuries 'Tunbridge' Jet Black Vegetable-Tanned Leather Shoulder Bag

Every woman needs a classic, spacious shoulder or tote bag to carry everything but the kitchen sink. They are quite literally essential items IMO. I spend more days with my trusty ‘Tunbridge’ shoulder bag than I do without it! Stick to a black leather tote or shoulder bag, and you will be able to mix and match it with multiple outfits. For a splash of colour, or to blend with other ensembles, I love to tie a cute vintage scarf around the handles to give the bag a new life!

The Handiest of Handbags


Pure Luxuries 'Blakeley' Grey Leather Handbag

Now you have the black bag sorted for the darker outfits, you’ll need a lighter-coloured bag for the neutral and white palette days. A handbag like the ‘Blakeley’ in grey is the perfect choice with its versatile shade and spacious design. Sticking to shades like light beige or grey is much easier to look after than white, so your bag will stay looking as good as new for much longer! 

Got your Back

Conkca 'Simone' Dark Tan Leather Backpack

For the days when you need your hands free, you will need a backpack like ‘Simone’ from the Conkca London Originals Collection. Its spacious and secure design is perfect for if you are hopping on your bicycle, running errands or taking a stroll in the park. Opt for a neutral colour like our Dark Tan and you will have a bag that will complement every outfit! Voila! Hands-free fashion at its finest!

Conveniently Convertible

Conkca 'Nemo' Black Leather Cross Body Clutch Bag

You will never have to choose between a cross body bag and a clutch ever again with the Conkca ‘Nemo’ multiway bag. This genius little bag will be your cross body companion during the day, and the perfect finishing touch to your evening attire. It is always best to have a dark and light-coloured clutch bag for all outfits, so we have chosen classic black for multiple styling options! 

Queen of Clutches

Pure Luxuries 'Golders' Blush Pink Leather Clutch Bag

Last but not least, you will need a light-coloured clutch for the more neutral outfits and we think the ‘Golders’ leather clutch bag in ‘Blush Pink’ is the perfect shade of nude to complement almost any outfit. This deceivingly spacious interior will fit everything you need for a night with the girls and the versatile design looks great whether you are a wedding guest, a BBQ babe or hitting the dancefloor.
