The Hermes Birkin has been a classic handbag for decades, but now the ladylike handbag has competition!
Top handle bags are everywhere right now as classic feminine style returns. Call it the Mad Men effect, but whatever has inspired this shift it is definitely a welcome break from the 'heroin chic' looks which have previously dominated the catwalk.
The latest Chloe it bag – the Darla (£1,230) has already been spotted on celebs like Rachel Bilson. Get the look for less with the ASOS lady bag (pictured, £32). Will you be carrying a ladylike bag this Autumn?
