The things we truly love about fashion is the fact that it’s never stagnant. There are always some new trends emerging out of the blue and other being put into the drawer. These trends only come back 20 years later if the present-day trends are any indication of such a phenomenon. So because of the reason that things are always flowing and changing in fashion, our tastes are constantly evolving as well. We tend to get bored of the clothes in our wardrobe on the regular, so when such a taste-change happens, we welcome this opportunity with welcome arms. Changing our looks regularly is what keeps us entertained with fashion and accessories. You can never really get bored with the flow of fresh designers constantly churning out interesting styles for us. The biggest shake-up in our recent styles and tastes is our newly developed obsession with embossed croc leather. Lately, we’ve been loving all things croc-embossed, largely owing to the Saint Laurent Sac de Jour Nano.
So here are our top picks for croc-embossed bags that we are absolutely in love with!
Mulberry Mini Zipped Bayswater
If you are after the Zippe Bayswater Mulberry bag, we would recommend waiting for the seasonal sales that let you buy this exorbitant bag at a slightly more decent price. If you are after a classic colour such as this electric blue, you might have to wait in line anyway. We would highly recommend this bag for its sheer luxe appeal, and functional offerings like space, great handles, croc-embossed leather and zippers for all your essentials. Also, you might have noticed that this is the mini handbag. If you are into carrying larger bags, you can also opt for the normal-sized bag that is larger than this and is perfect for your workdays. If the mini is your first choice, then you’re lucky because it can be accessorised with a large number of outfits from cute day dresses, to night-out looks. It is also a great crossbody bag and can be used as a tote or shoulder bag.
Balenciaga Metallic Edge Mini City Bag
The metallic edge adds spirit and a little spunk to an already cool bag. There is both silver and gold edging possible, and we love both equally for several reasons. We would opt for the City bag right now if the functionality aspect is your forte. But we would opt for the mini-city for the additional style and metallic edge finishes that it adds. Balenciaga certainly knows a good thing when it comes to croc-embossed bags, and adding this small update changes the bag completely and gives it a new look.
Tory Burch Miller Embossed Hobo
We love Tory Burch for more reasons that one. Brilliant craftsmanship, award-winning designs and great quality being a few. This bag is created in croc-embossed leather with a magnetic closure at the top for easy access. The pouch interior pockets give it that working-woman edge with an adjustable strap to take you anywhere you want to go. The cutout logo makes the Miller collection stand out even more. This Tory Burch hobo is a stylish, slouchy bag that’s ready to take on your day-to-day with panache.
Saint Laurent Sunset Croc Embossed Bag
YSL is as classic and sophisticated as it gets. This Saint Laurent flap front bag made of croc-embossed leather with accordion sides is all you need to make a statement. With a chain strap that can be worn crossbody or doubled on the shoulder, this one truly makes for a versatile piece. The leather-encased keyring and metal interlocking is YSL signature and we couldn’t have anything else on or bucket list!
Chloé Moc Croc Shoulder Bag
The Parisian fashion house Chloé seeks inspiration from the romantic streets of Paris. The ss19 brown half-leather moc croc-embossed shoulder bag from Chloe features a mock croc-effect that has us smitten. The bag comes with a shoulder strap, a gold-tone logo plaque, a foldover top and an internal pocket and magnetic closure which is just so practical yet fashionable that it breaks our hearts. Style this stunning creation with a day-dress, a pair of blue jeans or simply with an LBD for that maximum appeal.
