So it seems I’m not the only one happy about the fact that leg-lengthening flare denim is having a bit of a style resurgence, after my last style post declaring my love for the beauties that flare out from the knee I have been bombarded with requests on my top picks on the high street.
For me clutches are the perfect way to inject a little fun and personality into an outfit, and I am loving how many designer names are embracing the little quirky, statement bags in their collections. I am a huge fan of Charlotte Olympia, Kate Spade, Sophia Webster, Olympia Le Tan, and Anya Hindmarch, and I am so pleased I have a few in my bag collection, but when it comes to designer I tend to opt for their classic styles over the fun ones, so I have been on the hunt for some purse friendly fun alternatives, and I can’t believe how many beauties I found for under £40.
It seems that all the major high street and online retailers are embracing the statement clutch trend, with the likes of ASOS, Next, New Look, Debenhams and Accessorize taking inspiration from Chanel’s supermarket sweep, Anya Hindmarch’s love of brands, Fendi’s cute monsters, and there is even a copy of Sophia Webster’s speech bubble, with a little DIY help.
It is hard to pick a favourite, but if you twist my arm I think I have to be edging towards the Next offerings, I love their Drumstick clutch, not only for its nostalgic nod to my childhood, I loved those lollies, but also because its candy stripes will brighten up any look and the perfume bottle is just cute. I am also loving Accessorize’s Apple Juice bag, not quite Chanel, but hey for £29 what do you expect.

So last night Rosie Huntington-Whiteley hit up a party celebrating her first fragrance with M&S Beauty wearing nothing more than a silk nightdress from her own Rosie for Autograph sleepwear collection for Marks & Spencer, and I have to be honest if you read that statement without seeing the pictures you might think she has lost her fashion mojo, but wow, Rosie really can wear anything and still look incredible.
