Shades of red from deep burgundy to bright chilli are the hot thing this season, spotted everywhere from streets to catwalks. Get your hands on this trend with our edit of red handbags that delivers weekend style or brightens up boardroom meetings.
If you've always thought red handbags difficult to style, then think again. Deep shades of burgundy and claret are the way to go for elegant dressing while bright vermilion and coral reds make navy and neutral outfits brim with life. Quilted designs and crocodile prints in cherry red or delicious berry shades whisper glamour whether you're heading to a business meeting or dressing for an autumn wedding. Who doesn't love a stripe? A roomy shopper style handbag in graded stripes has just enough green to make the red stand out. Pair it with black jeans, tops and red trainers for running weekend errands around town.
Designer red handbags by Lauren Ralph Lauren, Love Moschino or Calvin Klein add an extra dimension to boyfriend jeans and silk tops, lifting them into super luxe looks for hot date nights in town. A top in orange or pink makes an eye-catching foil to the red of your bag. Red is a strong enough shade to make your bag the focal point of an outfit, especially when textured leather and touches of tassels feature. With extra-long straps, they sit just right against the simple elegance of shirt dresses in soft blue denim. Black patent leather loafers are an autumn trend that keeps your bag and dress grounded.
