House all your essentials and then some with our must-have oversized bags. From shopper bags with zips to extra-large tote bags for work, oversized bags are all about rocking the go-big or go-home attitude.

Oversized Totes

If you’re looking for the best work bags for women, oversized tote bags do the trick. They work just as hard as everyday bags but hold twice as many essentials. These days, it’s all about the textured tote bag aesthetic. So, choose from our collection featuring corduroy totes, PU tote bags and oversized fluffy numbers to match your teddy coat. Style with your favourite oversized coat, or make your extra-large bag steal the show by wearing skinnies and a fitted jacket.

Oversized Clutch

Who says classy can’t be oversized? Enter the oversized clutch. So, whether you’re going on a dinner date or a party, an oversized clutch bag will top off your glam look in no time. Pair your larger-than-life clutch with a little black dress, heels and simply keep calm and clutch on!

Good Things Come in Micro Bags

When it comes to micro bags, it’s all about living in the moment with just enough room for your phone and lippy. This 90s trend is back bigger and better, but still mini, of course. So, detox your big bag and browse our micro bag collection.

Micro Purse

We’re stocked up with plenty of micro purse styles, from metallic and monochrome to colourful. So, get ready to add a tiny addition to your wardrobe that’ll make a huge impact. To style a mini purse, we like to use the matching rule; make sure your mini bag matches with at least one other standout item in your outfit. Think matching shoes and a bag or a matching blazer and bag…you get the gist! Going to a party? Lightweight and trendy, micro purses are the ideal dancefloor accessory, making them one of the best party bag styles. Go for a blinged-out look with a mini-studded bag.

Mini Purses

Mini Backpacks

Mini backpacks are back to give your shoulders and wrists a break; these convenient cuties have become the go-to accessory this season. What started as a popular teenage bag is now a must-have accessory rocked by women of all ages. From classy black mini backpacks to shades that pop, these babies are here to add some serious oomph to your casual outfit. If you’re heading out to the club, style your little backpack with a co-ord and platform boots for the ultimate noughties look. 

Mini Bags for Phones

If your phone is the only essential you need when you’re out, we’ve got you. Our range of mini bags for phones includes everything from chic quilted mini cross-body bags right down to the minimalist phone pouch bag. Not only are our mini phone bags trendy, they’re also great at keeping your phone safe. This makes them super handy when travelling abroad.

How to clean leather bags?

Has your faux leather bag lost its shine? Simply mix lukewarm water and dish soap in a bowl, then dip a soft cloth into it. Wring the cloth out before wiping your bag’s exterior to get it back in spick-span condition.

Best bags for university students?

These bag styles work best for uni: backpacks, shoulder bags, oversized shoppers and zipped tote bags.

What is the difference between a clutch and a purse?

The main difference between the styles comes down to the straps. Clutch styles come with no handles or straps. Instead, a purse typically comes with a handle or detachable straps.
