If you are on the hunt for the trendiest bags and purses, be ready to track them all, from the sheepy newbies to the sassy croc, from the coveted Mulberry Alexa’s replicas, to the beloved satchel. 

Best? They are all under 40 pounds and are already at your laptop reach or a short walk away in your nearest High Street favorites!

As the back to school season is on its top stage, let’s start with the satchel, which you will carry from dawn to sunset.

Choose your color –black, tan or prune are the safest choices -, your size (from Primark’s nearly weekender to ASOS chic smaller version with two pockets in the front for extra space) and just hang it on your shoulder or dully but chicly on your forearm.


 For the Boho likes, try duffle bags, totally on vogue this season. 

 New Look offers a wide range of them, from mini studded ones to the hippy-chic Paisley pattern number.  Also Peacocks has some approaches to this must-have and always keeping the tightest budgets.

Over the shoulder and cross body ones are also big news this Fall and even more if you opt for the shearing version. Look them up in Matalan, Next and River Island and don´t forget to take a look in M&S racks. Just to give you some hints, try with the follows, from ASOS (suede double flap shoulder bag now on sale from £50.00 to £26.00).

 Finally, a never old-dated one, the treacle bag, which will fulfill your ultimate aspirations to belong to the Mad Men casting (Peacocks, featuring a trendy tuck lock design) and the chain over the shoulder model, as seen in ASOS.
