Choosing your leather handbag should all come down to colour, shape and price range.
Colours should be tan, beige, black and brown. But if want something a little more adventurous try berry, emerald, grey or navy. Something that you can wear with everything.
The shape should be big enough to hold all of your essentials - this differs for everyone, so think about what you carry with you on a day-to-day basis. The Lulu Guinness Lip clutch is beautiful, but it's not something that's practical. You want longevity.
The price range all comes down to personal preference. The high street have some amazing leather handbags that will stand the test of time, but obviously there is also the designer option. Whatever your budget you're going to find a bag for life.
