By Jemma Tibbals, 18 January 2017

If you're metaphorically decluttering your life this Jan, then why not think about extending the Marie Kondo-vibes to your handbag?

Seriously Spesh

Don't let a dress code get between you and your most fab backpack. A metallic, quilted, diddy version has got dinner date written all over it, especially when paired with a lace cami, like Russian blogger Elena Perminova.

Night Out-out

The joys of a mini backpack are not only visual. If hands-free access is all you pray for when you're holding a round of six drinks on a night out with your mates, a colourful 'pack, teamed with a cute denim jacket and knee highs, could be your idea of heaven.
