My Top Five Summer 2010 Handbag Styles

The large clutch bag!

We start with the big clutch! Clutch bags large enough to hold purses, cameras and other items we normally cannot take with us on a night out.

Farfalla Clutch Bag

The Faralla gold clip top clutch bag is nice and roomy and is a soft metallic clip top clutch bag with hideaway chain link handle. Interior pocket, satin lined (W22 x H10.5 cm).

RRP: £19.50

Grommets, Zips and Pockets

Detailing is the key word.  Plenty of pockets, zips, grommets.  The more a handbag has, the more popular it's going to be.  We want places to put our keys, travel pass and blackberry.

For this reason I'm a great fan of the American designer, Cynthia Rowley.  Cynthia Rowley handbags offer pockets galore.  Just as I think I've discovered every minute detailing of my handbag, I'll open a section to discover another hidden pocket where I can slide a pass, my keys or my second mobile.

Twin Link-Handle Satchel Bag

This twin-handled satchel has a detachable shoulder strap. Detailing includes twist lock exterior pocket, link chain twin-handle, shoulder strap, zipped top closure, mobile phone and blackberry pocket, double zipped interior pocket (L42 x H30 x W16).

RRP: £26.99

The Slouch Bag

The slouch is almost becoming a classic.  Every year, the slouch in some form or another makes a reappearance.  

Easy to sling over our shoulder, the slouch bag can hold nearly everything you can load into the kitchen sink!  Great for college kids, the slouch bag can hold all those cumbersome books but also looks good on an evening out.  

As one of the few bags to still look good half empty,  the slouch bag is a popular choice for many women.

Pompom Brown Suedette Slouch Bag

Suedette slouch bag with faux leather strap and bag charm, zipped top closure with zipped inside pocket (W43 x H30 cm).

Day to Night

Sometimes we need to have a bag that can easily be converted from day to night. With the flick of a clip, shoulder bags can become large clutches or alternatively, a hidden gold chain can jazz up a sombre handbag.

Nature Trail Patent Bag

Twin-handled patent bag from Nature Trail with adjustable/detachable shoulder strap, zipped top closure, zipped back pocket, zipped inside pocket, mobile phone pocket (w43 x h36.5 cm).

The Classic Handbag!

Classic handbags never go out of fashion.  As much as we all love our fashion bags in zany styles and colours, we have to always have one classic handbag to fall back on.  A bag that will go with anything in our wardrobe.  It's dependable and practical.

Dominique Black Leather Single Strap Shoulder Bag

Leather single strap shoulder bag, zipped top closure, zipped back pocket, zipped and open inside pockets (W24.5 x H24 cm).
