It is remarkable how something so simple can become an absolute essential for modern life.
Handbags, no matter how big or small, are one of the most important pieces of your wardrobe. Your handbag contains everything you think necessary to get by each day: mobile phone, purse, keys, makeup, snacks, hand wipes, painkillers, toiletries, etc.
Historically handbags were used by both men and women for the simple purpose of storing coins, but over the centuries they became much more important to women as men favoured using pockets over coin purses. Embroidery was an important skill to learn for young women living in the 17th century and so they would embroider beautiful little handbags, turning them into fashion accessories.
As the world moved into the 20th century, handbags became what we now know them to be: an indispensable piece of classic design, essential for everyday living. Stylists will agree that the most iconic and classic handbag designs are the most simple, and can be evolved with time and for all seasons.
And those clever designers at POSH have created a line of large handbags perfect for everyday use, for every season.
The 'Layla' bag is a quintessentially elegant choice; the soft and colourful handbag has a quilted texture for a timeless look while the hidden long gold chain adds the option of wearing this as a clutch or a shoulder bag, making it great for both evening and daytime trends.
POSH have created this bag in four beautiful colours: bright pink, royal blue, aqua and black.
Black is always a chic preference and works for every season. But adding colourful pops of brights to neutral or dark colour schemes can really take a look to new places and add vividness to dreary autumn and winter days. The royal blue 'Layla' bag would look fantastic dressed with neutral tones like camel, while the bright pink and striking aqua would set off against blacks and greys beautifully.
Roomy enough to be used for everyday trips to work or leisurely walks but stylish enough for cocktails with the girls, the 'Layla' is a really clever investment for your wardrobe.
As Michael Kors once said: "I've always thought of accessories as the exclamation point of a woman's outfit".
