Team Who What Wear may only have distant memories of being students, but we still crave the thrill of a fresh uniform for a new term (aka season) and the orderly satisfaction of a freshly stocked pencil case, although, these days, it's more the smell of a new leather bag that sets our hearts racing.
Thanks to the Great British high street, there are plenty of affordable bag styles available for the discerning shopper, many of which could be mistaken for their high-end counterparts.
This season's offering feels decidedly retro, with plenty of mock-croc, tortoiseshell, baguettes and structured silhouettes dominating the summer collections. Our favourites include Mango's sage crossbody (totally set to be the colour of the season), COS's black belt bag (a must-have addition to a jumpsuit) and Topshop's link shoulder bag, which looks like it could've been transported straight from the arm of Mossy circa 1995. What more could you want?
