Large Tote Bags

But it’s not about the exact matching of hats, bags and shoes it’s more to do with contrasting colours and getting the balance right. From look-at-me designer handbags, dazzling wristlet bags, to slouchy tote bags and cross-body bags there something for everyone. Here you’ll find inspiration from the latest styles for the perfect finish to smart daywear and glamorous evening wear.

Mother of the Bride Bags

Discover elegant bags for Mother of the Bride, Mother of the Groom and Grandmother of the Bride bags. For a complete top to toe dressing, it has to be occasionwear specialists Jacques Vert. Along with Chesca, you will find beautiful plus size clothing as well as accessories too. Features that catch the eye like pearl beaded embellishment, pleat detail and rose trim fastening. An effortless combination of style and luxury with matching hats and fascinators too.

Occasion Handbags for Day or Evening

You’ll find modern shoulder bag styles like the mini bucket and saddle bags at Karen Millen and Hobbs. Colour block, stripe, suede fringe and quilted are some of the features. Medium sized bags in brown or black work both for day and night and can be understated yet just as stylish.
