Six colourful wristlets to buy before anyone else

Six colourful wristlets to buy before anyone else

If you’re of the less is more mindset, miniature wristlets couldn’t be more appropriate. For SS19, designers are switching our focus back to oh-so-charming micro pouches.

The reality is that large handbags triumph mini styles when practicality comes into question, but because of Cult Gaia’s purple tasseled wristlet and Topshop’s satin embroidered design, I’m forever drooling over minaudière’s. I’m even doing a happy dance over Zara’s cream straw treasure.

On the spring catwalks, Emilia Wickstead introduced boxy styles, Coach was all about bohemian chic, Chanel delivered seriously chic rectangle shapes and Marni showcased fantastic deconstructed designs in metallic shades.

From woven textures, abstract interpretations and colourful beads, dial-up your summer dress-code with these six wristlets that are perfect for sunny days.
