It’s hard to justify spending money on yourself with Christmas around the corner, but these hero handbags are too good to be true!

Platinum’s resident style expert, Boo Hill, has rounded up some of her hero handbags on the high-street right now.

With price tags as low as £8… well it’s the equivalent of a couple of pricey coffees from your local fancy coffee shop. Plus, we think everyone deserves a treat after the last year.

These hero handbags are all on trend yet timeless too so they will last you from season to season too. And with party season round the corner, we know you will get some use out of the stylish and sparkly options.

Boo says, “Accessories are the perfect way to refresh and update my wardrobe favourites with this season’s look. They can easily add colour to an otherwise more subdued look. A bright pink bag can give both your outfit and your mood a real lift. Finishing touches are also fabulous at pulling an outfit together and ultimately, making you look more stylish. They are also a simple way to take an outfit from day into evening with minimal effort — and can often be found on the high street at a reasonable price. Just add a pair of on-trend hoop earrings, colourful heels, a stylish bag and you’re good to go!”
