For most of us, deciding on what to wear to a wedding is tricky enough, but when it is scheduled in September, things get a little more hectic. Unlike the heatwave that is still sweeping most of the country, it makes you reconsider your wardrobe options. When it comes to a tropical getaway, the summer is filled with palm trees and a sunny escape. The best way to enjoy what the new season has to offer us, is by getting invited to a palm summer nuptial. You can be fairly certain there will be palm tree wedding invitations involved.

When it comes to designer handbags, Mulberry has positioned itself as the destination for timeless investment purchases-without the feeling of paying a lot and lacking in quality. From classic totes that stand the test of time to smaller cross-body bags that go perfectly for a wedding reception or a glamourous night out. The versatility of these handbags mean that you will be getting your money’s worth. Time and time again, I have personally seen the quality issues with brands and this isn’t good for the consumer. Who really wants to pay ridiculous prices, if you are not getting the craftsmanship to go along with it. 

However, I am a firm believer that less is more. Embracing the minimalistic features of Mulberry, while still adding something extra can be healthy for the mind, body, and soul. Speaking of which, getting rid of what you don’t need and replacing it with something new…can be very cathartic. If you’re attached to some things you can’t seem to part with, then minimalism can seem intimidating at first. I can attest to the fact it is very easy, it also relieves stress and is refreshing. 

Have you ever looked at your wardrobe and thought to yourself, do I really need this? The number one thing to realise is you don’t have to own 10,000 bags to be happy. For anyone who is a self-proclaimed handbag lover, understands the need to check out the latest styles. It can be fun and somewhat therapeutic. Retail therapy is real and we are all guilty of shopping till we drop. It is truly harmless and with the seasons changing, new looks are popping up in the shops. You just have to be careful you don’t buy items you don’t really use. 

Here are some easy ways to become a minimalist while adding some classic Mulberry bags to your normal sized collection. 

1. Make a list of things you don’t really need. 
If you haven’t done this already, check out your closet. If you have bags or accessories that you haven’t used in over a year. Then it is high time you part with them gracefully. 

2. Get rid of any duplicate items. 
We are all culprits of being the all black bag collection. As classy as black is, it is good to add some depth and colour. If you have something that looks like your other pieces sell them. 

3. Put a stop to agonizing over styles. 
One thing people make the mistake is when you see a new bag come out. And you think I have to own this. Wait a second, is this style something you would pick up normally? Would you use it a lot? Or just for special occasions? Asking yourself these questions does wonders.

4. Keep your collection clutter-free. 
It looks so tacky, when you have a billion bags taking up most of the room in your wardrobe. Who wishes to look at that? And it can look like a bunch of unnecessary ornaments on display. Make sure your shelves are free of random clutter. This way it is neat and tidy. 

5. Don’t get Instagram scammed with bags. 
When scrolling on Instagram feeds. You can come across a certain brand or style of bag that you think I must have that beauty! Don’t fall for it. Nine out of ten chances the bag is just a trend and will come and go quicker than you can blink. Only buy a style that you feel will be a true investment to yourself. 

6. Minimize your bag.
Being a minimalist doesn’t mean you lack in fashion sense, but stick to basic colours and pieces that will go with everything for a classic and easy style. Embracing this type of wardrobe will make getting ready for early morning commutes a breeze. And can help you maintain a closet full of clothes, accessories, and bags you actually use and wear. Not stuff you think you might wear one day and turn around and waste space.

6 ways to be a minimalist with Mulberry

What do you think of minimalistic style? 

Written by Heather Lisa Noire  
With autumn, practically just around the corner and the warm weather almost behind us, it’s time to start thinking about toasty accessories to go along with those cosy coats. 

From the obvious (bonjour, cross-body!) to other styles you may have not yet ventured into wearing (how about trying a classic flap bag for size?), many endlessly useful and practical versions are dropping into stores right now-and none have lost the wow factor in spite of their versatility. The kind of purchase we as consumers like to make the most is the kind that prompts excitement but also long-term wear: classic fashion items are most sought after this time of year.

They key to choose which type of handbag suits your wardrobe’s needs the most, then simply apply those key new-season styles and you’re good to go. If you see yourself more less a casual person when it comes to your style choices, this bag is for you. It may not seem like it but a Chanel bag has a lot of qualities that work with the most minimalistic outfits.

Have you ever had someone come up to you, who basically shouldn’t be uttering those daft words? “that bag is for evening only.” Well, excuse me! I didn’t realise you were the style police. Let me just do exactly what you told me. That way I can’t have my own opinions on what looks smashing on me. This individual person who muttered those words. Clearly, knows absolutely nothing about fashion. What is incredible about expressing your own style is the idea you can break the rules and just do what feels right for you.

Not everybody likes Chanel. But some find it ridiculously overpriced. This is where sites like Fashionphile and The Real Real come in. You can shop on these sites and find brand new bags with tags attached and gently used items in amazing condition. So, you save yourself from paying crazy amounts of money on the bags today. Chanel, like other high-end brands are hiking up their prices. I don’t know about you, but I am not moron enough to pay full price when I can be sharp and get one at a much better price point.

Here is some background on the Reissue, that you might not have known before. I was thinking about Chanel bags as a whole and I had an interesting discussion with my niece. She always commented on how beautiful the bags are with the quilting and of course lovely chains attached. One thing stood out in the conversation, the bag is so small. She commented towards me and what can you fit in it? As a handbag shopper, I have to say the depth is so important. You don’t want to buy something you can’t fit your daily essentials in. 
Photo: Reissue Street Style Getty Images
Gabrielle Chanel created a bag that she needed herself: an accessory which freed up her hands. In February 1955, Chanel changed handbag history forever: she introduced the 2.55 quilted handbag with chain straps. Everyone more less passed out on the floor once they saw it. For the first time, it was acceptable for women to carry a bag on their shoulders. Which shows how far we have come. 
Photo: Pinterest Chanel Reissue 
The name 2.55 is based off of the date it was created 2 is the February month and the 55 is the date. Chanel sold the original 2.55 flap for drum roll please, 154.54 pounds or 200USD. Now, it goes for a couple of thousand and just keeps climbing. The exterior pocked, showcased Chanel’s love for the Mona Lisa and made the pocket reminiscent of her smile, which was said to be for loose change when tipping.

There are some modernism issues with the reissue. Mainly, not a lot of compartments for your smart phone. Or for keys, lipstick, purse, charger, and much more. Unless, you purchase a bigger version of the bag which I highly recommend.

Here are some different versions of the bag and how you can style it below.

Rainy days aren’t just bad for the hair, but for our outfits too. I can’t even count the number of times I have gotten a great look together to wear and it starts bucketing with rain. This can put a real damper in your overall mood. But through weather and error, I have decoded exactly what to wear when it rains, like swapping jeans for dresses and adding a bold raincoat to bring a little cheer to a much gloomy day. And, of course, a sturdy chic umbrella. Speaking of rain, it seems the fashion industry enjoys getting inspired from old school eras. This has been evident in the return of the 90s styles. Which can be both fun and scary.

One decade that is coming back with star power, is the mod era of the sizzling 1960s. No, you don’t have to run to your mums closet to see if she still kept a hold of that incredible Twiggy styled dress. (even though, I kind of feel like doing that now.)

The monochrome is really not going anywhere. And it seems to be breathing a new life with the Oreo effect. This black and white tandem is anything but boring, you can mix a variety of patterned, striped, and geometric styles. The look alone can be highly easy to pull off and possess versatility for days. 
Photo: Street Photography Getty
For some, the idea of having any type of bold colour in their wardrobe is unthinkable. Instead of a brighter approach, monochrome outfits, featuring black and white pieces, is the only style that is always acceptable. This works for so many cinereous, if you happen to be attending a gala, wedding, or a cocktail party, these two iconic tones mesh perfectly. 
Photo: Topshop
It doesn’t just stop at important formal events. You can wear the Oreo effect, casually while you stroll down the city streets. And the best part is when you mix this style with old fashioned favourites like a pair of sleek denim jeans.

Being really creative doesn’t mean you have to be all bold and empowered with a trend. You can introduce bits and pieces with some hot accessories. Handbags, shoes, jewellery, the list is endless.
