We’re not even in the midst of winter and I’m already growing sick of styling the same black, grey and beige items on repeat—but, whilst the grey clouds remain a permanent feature, I’m not yet in the mood to integrate all that much colour into my wardrobe. So, this season I’m working through my predicament by stocking up on my current favourite shade that captures the cosy essence I’m after, without dominating my look: Rich brown. Encapsulating the mood this season, the warm chocolate shade has been cropping up on all of our favourite influencers and celebrities as of late, after making an impact on the autumn/winter runways. 

Whilst I’ve been tempted by espresso-brown jumpers and almond-coloured coats, this winter I’m eager to freshen up my accessory rotation with the year’s favourite neutral. For its warm, earthy nature, a deep brown bag can added a grounded element to your outfit, whilst breathing fresh air into your capsule wardrobe.

Standing in for the classic black bag, a the brown bag trend pairs harmoniously with light beige, tan and taupe shades for a tonal winter outfit that will have you feeling put-together with ease. It’s not just the influencers who have come round to styling the neutral: Brands such as H&M and Mango and DeMellier and Reformation have all come out with chic, elevated bags in the elegant tone.

If you, too, are tired of reaching for the same black bag day-in and day-out, reliable as it may be, read on to discover my edit of the best brown bags available to shop now.
