🕤 5 min read

We are always looking for ways to reinvent our look and overhaul our wardrobe. With new trends every month if not week to keep up finding a timeless piece or trendy must have at an affordable price is key. 

Here at Pure Luxuries we pride ourselves on being luxury at an affordable price and we have put together the must-haves for your capsule wardrobe overhaul. 

Cross Body Bags Galore

Starting with a classic and well-loved design, this versatile style comes in many forms and sizes. 

From the classic cross body bag to the clutch cross body bag and finally a new comer for us the phone bag. These 3 styles of cross body bag offer versatile options for any occasion. 

For the classic but nonetheless loved cross body bag, we adore the ‘Lewes’ for its spacious and stylish design. Taking the simple design and elevating it with leather craftsmanship and a timeless Pure Luxuries charm. The perfect day time companion. 

For those looking for a bag to transform from Conkca’sNemo’ is a must-have thanks to the sleek design that is spacious without being clunky. Just what you need for transforming from day to night with all your essentials in one place. 

Sleek and contemporary, the ‘Bambino’ phone bag is perfect for the modern needs, with cards and everything you could need on your phone. Why not streamline your accessory down to match this? The plethora of colours means there is one for every outfit and occasion. 

Tote Bags for Days

Totes and shoppers go hand in hand these days, and perfect for those looking for ample space whether running errands or as a work bag. These capacious designs come in many shapes and sizes ranging from the extra large to the large. 

A firm favourite for us has to be the ‘Pembury’ in the Ombré Chestnut that features an exposed leather interior for a fuss-free storage that is great for grab and go on the busy days. Perfect for slinging over your shoulder or on your arm. 

For those looking for more organisational options, we love the ‘Clover’ which is on the smaller size but still filled with storage features to ensure you have everything you could need in one place. The angled zipped pockets on the front are eye-catching and functional with additional slip pockets on the interior for keys, phone or any other smaller items. 

Clutching for a Look

We have already seen the cross body clutch bag combination make an appearance but there are still plenty of other clutch bag styles bound to impress. 

Starting with the unique built-in handle of the ‘Esher’ which elevates this bag with effortless sophistication. This small yet beautiful design is perfect for a phone and any other necessities for a night out. 

For those looking for flexibility, we love the ‘Lytham’ with its detachable leather wrist strap offers multiple ways to wear. Let’s not forget the natural milled leather exterior which gives it the distinct grain finish and elevates any look. 

Shouldering the Weight

Shoulder bags are amongst our most versatile and the perfect mid-point between our oversized shoppers and totes. 

The unique design of the ‘Bembridge’ in the rustic Saddle Tan makes it a must-have thanks to the decorative and functional leather tassels which keep the bag secured alongside the press-stud fastener. This reinvention of a classic design elevates any outfit - day or night. 

For those looking for a lined accessory, we love the Cultured London 'Chancery'. The premium nappa leather is soft-to-the-touch yet durable - perfect for everyday use or even for special occasions. The decorative bullring design gives it a unique finish and shows off our beautiful metal fittings. 

Handbag O’Clock

Next up is the trusty handbag. Starting with an old favourite in the eye-catching Dark Tan, the ‘Alice’ from Conkca. This stylish design is compact but not without space for all your needs exploring the city. Effortlessly sophisticated and perfect for spring and summer as a transitional piece. 

For those truly in the spring vibe, the Blush Pink craze has truly hit us and we love the unique ‘Colette’ handbag. Slightly on the bigger side, this is the perfect bridge between a tote and handbag while looking stylish. Packed with plentiful storage features, perfect for a picnic or beer garden. 

Backpacking Times

It wouldn’t be summer without a backpack for hands-free exploring of hikes or just shopping with ease. 

For those looking for a spacious design, we love the ‘Addington’ with its dual zipped design and roomy interior. This Cultured London design features generous space for snacks, drinks and more for your next adventure and must needed picnic. 

Add a much needed pop of colour to your outfit with our bright and bold Chilli Pepper ‘Francisca’. This much loved Conkca classic much like the ‘Addington’ features a dual zipped front for a unique and functional design. Great for having the essentials on-the-go. 

Grab Your Holdalls

As we approach the holiday season, we are definitely eyeing up a holdall for all your holiday essentials. Not quite enough for your entire wardrobe but plenty for an outfit a day over a long weekend, the dependable holdall is a must. 

I know we are dreaming of sand between our toes and the ‘Ocean’ on our shoulder. This compact holdall is a firm favourite thanks to the zipped pockets on either side, perfect for separating out your toiletries and anything you might need for your next adventure. 

Whatever you have planned this spring and summer, we hope you have found some much needed inspiration. For more ideas, check out our Instagram and check #MyPureLuxuries and don’t forget to give us a follow on Pinterest for your daily fashion fix!
