When it comes to bags and accessories, we’re always on the look-out for what’s new, on trend or something that is going to be huge next season. With a huge amount of January sales on, now is the perfect time to grab yourself a bargain. Whether that’s from online or in store, you’re bound to get yourself something to cure those January blues- nothing a bit of retail therapy can’t fix!

Girl Corp looks to find and produce killer accessories and bags to take your outfit to new levels. Whether that’s with a bum bag or a going out bag, there’s always something for everyone and every style. We’ve created a round-up of our fave bag trends from the catwalk for Spring/ Summer 2019. These will help transition your wardrobe in preparation for the new season, whilst giving everyone else serious bag envy…


  1. Lanyards


Bum bags last season were the easy-to-wear bag that meant you could parade around town, hands free and ready to take on the day. Next season it’s all about lanyards and small cute bags to carry around your neck. These obviously won’t hold more than a phone and a bank card, maybe even a pair of fashion glasses, however they act as the best addition to your outfit. We’re taking inspiration from the Gabriela Hearst blue snake-printed lanyard. Add to any outfit for a splash of colour.


2. Transparent

Transparent accessories have been on the catwalk for a number of seasons recently, and we still can’t get enough! There’s something great about designing the contents of your handbag and making yourself look as chic as possible. Take a look at our range on Girl Corp, including the blogger ‘it’ bag of the season.


3. Neon Green


After seeing Kim Kardashian rock neon green hair and skin-tight outfits, it seems this hue has turned to bags. A neon clutch bag will certainly turn heads and make a statement to any night-out outfit. We loved the neon green Prada bag from the S/S19 catwalk- giving us inspiration to find an embellished look-alike with studs or metallic details. Keep an eye out on Girl Corp New In- we’ve got some incoming pieces that will help you nail this trend!


4. Crochet


Making us dream of summer are the crochet bags. Dreamy neutral tones and textures make the perfect bag. We may not have plans to go to the beach, but the crochet style will make us feel like we’re there anyway.  This oversized Monse bag would go perfectly with a midi skirt and statement earrings. Stick with dark colours and gold accessories for a crochet match made in heaven.


5. Tassels


Not just made for leather jackets and the Wild West, tassels on your new bag are set to be a huge trend next season. We love movement and texture with our outfits, so this is the perfect addition to bring any outfit back to life. The Philip Lim catwalk is an example of how tassels can work wonders for your fashion outfit. Black leather is a great option for those that don’t feel too comfortable with those ‘out-there’ styles. Simple, chic and totally on-trend.
