Spring provides the perfect time for a handbag detox; out with the blacks, browns and greys of winter, and in with stripes, creams and florals for spring summer.

To help shoppers find their new must-have bag for the season, McArthurGlen at York have picked out their best trends, starting with the oversized bucket bag for daytime – check out Basler or Jaeger.

For evenings out, bag sizes have shrunk. Small cross body bags are the ultimate must-have – choose one in shimmering metallic from Osprey for spring.

To fight off the dark British weather, floral prints and 60s block colour are great way of adding the wow factor to any outfit. Choose a bold oversized clutch or cross body bag; Ted Baker’s bloomy clutch bag is the perfect choice for any fashionista.

McArthurGlen’s York Designer Outlet offers more than 120 designer and high street brands including Reiss, The Kooples, Kurt Geiger, Ted Baker, Radley and French Connection, all up to 60 per cent off.
