While gold links and supple leather finishes are guaranteed to never go out of style, this season’s rising accessory trend has gone in a different direction. Think: plastic, it’s fantastic. As predicted, fall’s resurgence of ‘90s nostalgia brings forth materials like resin and acrylic.

Along with large-and-in-charge earrings, necklaces and the once-again coveted hair barrette, handbags are also inheriting plastic finishes of tortoiseshell, neon and bone-coloured finishes in the most eye-catching ways from silhouettes to chunky link straps. And while it girls have been rocking this trend since the start of fall, in our book, nothing truly gets marked as a must-have until it’s Duchess Meghan Markle-approved.

While attending the annual WellChild Awards, Markle donned streamlined green dress from Parosh —the same one she first wore to announce her engagement to Prince Harry back in 2017— with a strategic bag choice. Topping off her favourite Sentaler coat and camel pumps, her accessory game was taken to the next level thanks to the Montunas Guaria Tortoiseshell Scarf Bag ($695).

Old trends meet new with this modern sense bag. Proudly made in the U.K., it features an acetate brown tortoiseshell-finished boxy shape and a detachable silk scarf handle. Great to wear from day to night, this bag is also available in various colourways and scarf prints.

And now with Meghan’s orchid-print silk scarf handle of choice is no longer available, there’s no better time to act fast on this bag trend.
