Styling The Balmain Canvas Tote With A 15 Piece Capsule Wardrobe

The Day Bag That Will Take You Through The Season

By Lauren Silvester

I don’t know about you but I tend to wear the same bag for a fair few weeks before switching it over to something else. Right now I’m loving my Acne vinyl bag from a few years ago – it’s the perfect size. I happen to have my eye on another investment bag though; the Balmain canvas tote. Coming in at £552 it’s pricey but a bag that would work with everything in my wardrobe. I even saw someone in town who had theirs customised with cool graffiti style writing in the style of Off White Jitney bags. Very unique!

So using what’s in my capsule wardrobe, here’s what I’d wear with it. I haven’t quite had chance to shoot with my girl Zoe so I’ve popped the inspiration into little pictures for you! Let me know what you think in the comments below 🙂
