Ever wondered how off-duty models make a basic outfit of a T-shirt and jeans look so cool?
Alongside being genetically blessed, it’s in part down to the accessories.
Chuck on some dainty jewellery, a claw clip, and the right shoes, and an otherwise boring outfit suddenly feels super stylish.
And, of course, you’ll need a bag.
But – whisper it – you don’t need to listen to any fashion mags who advise you to drop a load of cash on a designer carry-all.
Yes, ‘it bags’ are very much a thing, but these days, you can copy the same aesthetic without paying big bucks.
Case in point: one bag trend we’ve seen worn by all sorts of influencers, models, and celebs alike is the animal print bag – and there are a bunch of high-street options that tick off that look without costing a load of cash.
The good thing about this trend is that it’s no passing craze.
Animal print basically never goes out of style, and the mid-size option lets you skip past the swinging pendulum of whether massive totes or teeny-tiny micro clutches are the thing to be seen in.
To save you the work of scouring the web and searching the stores, we’ve pulled together a list of our favourite budget-friendly animal print bags that you can buy right now.
