Round of applause for Marks and Spencer, everyone, because it's just created one of the most expensive-looking handbags I've spotted on the high street in a long time. The tote in question has already been worn by Monikh (a guarantee that this bag is chic) and comes in olive green and black. But what are the defining features that make it seem so much more rich-looking than other similar inexpensive bags?
Firstly, it's made from leather, which means that it has long-lasting appeal and will look great as it weathers. Secondly, the colour is important here. The green is a deep olive hue, which a rich-looking colour if I ever saw it. If you're more of a traditionalist, then you can't go wrong with black.
Finally, it's worth noting that it's the bag's simplicity that makes it look so expensive. We often talk about this on Who What Wear, but it's the fact that there are no frills on this item that gives it understated elegance. Keep scrolling to see Monikh's way of styling the piece and shop the bags.
