The Duchess of Sussex is one of the best examples of high-low dressing, often proving that you do not have to spend the earth to look amazing. And, nowhere is this more obviously the case in her wardrobe than when it comes to her handbag collection, where she often champions mid-range designer brands, or pairs high-end designer bags with more affordable pieces.

Meghan is a big fan of mid-range designer brands like Strathberry, Oroton and DeMellier, while she also peppers her wardrobe with more expensive pieces, as she just did when she stepped out recently in New York City with husband Harry.

The duchess was seen carrying a Valextra's Iside Mini Tote, which she wore with a camel coat by Reiss, a black dress and pointed Aquazzura pumps.

The bag is a great workwear hero with its handy size, structured shape and vintage-inspired design, while it also has a shoulder strap if you want to go hands free.
