We are starting to get excited about outfit planning with lockdown restrictions easing in NSW, and the bag we are carrying is just as important as the dress. Whether you normally go for an everyday carry-all or more of a bold and colourful Poppy Lissiman design, a good bag will transcend trends so you know you’re making a good investment. In order to buy consciously, we like to consider things like functionality and versatility – this is what makes a great bag stand the test of time. We are seeing some great styles on the streets from single strap cross-body bags, to chain-link handles and oversized beach bags big enough to fit a decent beach towel, water bottle, sunscreen, shades and then some.
Finding a good bag does not need to be an expensive exercise; to inspire you, we have rounded up some of the bags our fashion team is wishlisting to match their future outfits.
- Editorial Specialist
"I am most excited about being allowed out of the house for more than an hour at a time. I'm preparing to be out all day, starting with a swim in my bikini, sandals that will take me from beach to bar and a few makeup essentials for touchups throughout the day!"
- Head of Creative Content & Social
"I'm a sucker for a cute bag and tend to pick the less practical but pretty styles over something more functional. This fun Shrimps bag lands somewhere in the middle - l love the details of the checked print and beaded handles but it still has enough room for me to overfill it with everyday essentials for a coffee date in the park. It would always be stuffed with sunnies, a hat, water bottle, face mask, lip salve, blanket and a couple of baby bits - never without a sunhat and teethers!"
- Engagement Marketing Coordinator
"Go hard or go home - and I'm certainly not staying home once we're out of lockdown! You can't go wrong with a cute, statement Swinger Bag paired with neutral heels, layered gold jewellery and a pair of tinted sunnies. Top it off with juicy gloss and a camera to capture moments with your friends, and you've got yourself a fun Sunday rooftop brunch!"
- Social Media Specialist
"I went with a tote bag to hold ALL my picnic gear including my favourite game to play with friends."
- CRM Manager
"I'm most excited for restrictions easing to get back in the boxing studio, after all the lockdown emotional eating, I'm keen to get fit again!"
