Buying a bag for summer can be hard. White gets too dirty, while black and brown can be too dark. Pink and yellow are lovely but can look a bit girly and don’t go with sophisticated summer outfits. This ‘Proust’ bag from Collard Manson, £58, however, will go with almost anything. It will smarten up a jeans based outfits and is sophisticated enough for party dresses in blue, green, beige, brown… almost anything except pink! Perfect for summer weddings, garden parties and cocktails in the Caribbean.
