Fashion Battle: Statement bags

Fashion Battle: Statement bags

It's one thing knowing how to style yourself, but working the perfect statement bag into any look puts you in a whole new fashion league.

Big and bold is the order of the day when it comes to this summer's accessories, and our street style fashionistas didn't disappoint when we headed out to snap the latest London trends this week.

Designer or high street, pretty or practical, statement bags were everywhere in our August Street Style.

We've picked out three of our favorites - but which is yours?

Look One: Designer Diva

 - Fashion Battle: Statement bags

Naomi from Bournemouth clearly has a bit of a thing for designer touches (don't we all?!) She sets off her outfit with oversize Marc Jacobs sunglasses and a large Louis Vuitton shoulder bag.

It's all about the classic touch, so she opts for that unmissable tan-on-brown LV print and wears her labels with pride.

Her Miss Selfridge dress is perfectly tailored to her figure and the eye-catching red tone lets her darker statement accessories really pop. Picture perfect!

Look Two: High Street Honey

With her jumper, blouse, trousers, and bag all from Zara, we think Aitziber from Spain just might have a favorite high street haunt!

She proves that you don't have to belong to the 'it' crowd to pull off a statement bag - a well-chosen high street find can still look right classy.

This structured, faux crocodile bag adds another texture to her mix n' match look. It clashes with that lime knit for a look-at-me twist. We're looking!

Look Three: Touch of Color

Stephanie follows in Aitziber's footsteps with another fab Zara bag. We're putting the store at the top of our list the next time we go accessory-hunting (pretty soon, then!)

While our other two fashion battle hopefuls have opted for classic browns, Stephanie goes for an in-your-face terracotta bag. The bright color makes it a real statement piece, especially when it's contrasting with those bright green trousers...

But is it enought to get your vote?

Which street styler works her statement bag the best?
