Topshop's Instagram feed is currently an explosion of snake, leopard and zebra prints—it's one of the boldest accounts out there right now. There's one animal-print piece that's really standing out, however: a £25 baguette shoulder bag in a brown leopard print. Within days of it being posted online, influencers like Monikh are already screenshotting it to their Instagram stories. The baguette style, which will forever make us think of Carrie Bradshaw, has made a triumphant comeback this year. Due to great demand naturally the one in question has sold out online. While you head to your nearest store to check if it's still in stock, there's tonnes of new styles for the taking on site. Think fluffy finishes, jumbo chain-link handles and diamantés to tote with joy. They look best when worn with a pair of strappy stiletto heels and a big faux fur coat, in true Sex and the City fashion.
Topshop's dresses have been getting all the attention this summer, thanks to the polka-dot pinafore dress and an endless stream of printed midis. However, the handbag department is really strong right now, from XL totes to mini buckets. Keep scrolling to shop the 15 bags that will make you feel like Carrie.
