I'm not one to shy away from bold accessories. In fact, in the last month alone, I've purchased a zebra-print belt, embellished slides, and enough rainbow jewellery to rival any eight-year-old's collection. However, when it comes to investment bags, my practical gene kicks in, and I always end up opting for classic styles and timeless colours to ensure I'll get endless use out of each purchase. The accessory I currently have my sights set on? This new quilted black leather bag from Balmain.
I've seen it used in so many different outfits all over Instagram, which means it has incredible cost per wear potential. It would be truly difficult to find a look that isn't made cooler by way of this handbag, and these nine are currently topping my list of ones I'm ready to copy with my aforementioned chosen style.
The quilted leather and gold chain detail on the bag really stand out against a neutral slip dress. Finishing this look off with everyone's favourite summer 2019 sandals is really just the cherry on top.
