Five Sambag Outfits You Need Now. Plus WIN a Pair of Sambag Shoes of Your Choice!


Sambag has been synonymous with being THE shop to buy gorgeous ballet flats for twenty years (think every luxurious texture you could dream of, in all the colours of the rainbow) but also well known for their gorgeous leather bags and smart casual, go-to, statement fashion pieces.

Over the last twenty years, the brand has stayed true to their classic pieces and designs but has evolved with the different fashion trends at the time.

As we would expect from Sambag, the Spring/Summer 16 collection is effortlessly chic, feminine and luxurious.

The collection represents travel, practicality and ease of use, perfect for lazing around a resort (or even just pretending to). It’s about inspiring the wearer to escape from the everyday.  Think elegant silhouettes and detailed embroidery.  Simple, classic tailored pieces in shades of pastel green, vivid blue, coral pink, white, navy, black and printed florals embody the collection’s functionality and fashionable style.

The introduction of laid-back sneakers, feminine wedges, and effortlessly cool slides in a myriad of printed and plain fabric, along with Sambag’s iconic and timeless ballets, complete the SS16 shoe collection.   The collection balances perfectly between a beautiful boho vibe and traditional resort wear, making the collection ideal summer staples.

We have put together five outfits from the range, from casual days in the sun to a work outfit, we have covered everything you will need for the upcoming season:

The Cute Summer Dress

Hot days call for a simple but elegant, flirty dress to cool you down. We love the flattering silhouette of the Milla dress. The fitted bodice and wide shoulder straps offers a streamline look to the top of the dress. The flirty skirt brilliantly hides any bottom half flaws we may have, while giving a gorgeous hourglass effect. A cute floral clutch is essential for heading out at night or for even just popping your phone and cards in for a daytime outing.  A wedge heel is a must have in the warmer months, just ask Princess Kate (the queen of the wedge heel)! We are sure she would love these stylish leather wedges.

The Statement Skirt

A statement skirt is a Spring and Summer essential to any woman’s wardrobe and you cannot go past this stunning navy and white jacquard fabric skirt, designed with a fitted waistband and gentle flare to create an elegant A-line shape. Of course, navy and tan are the must have combination, so we teamed the navy outfit with tan sandals and gorgeous leather bag.sambag-silk-top-skirt-tan-sandals-handbag

Work It Out

A classic pant suit is essential to any working woman’s wardrobe and will last many years and seasons as it never dates. Just update your shoes and top for the changing seasons and you will be good to go. A well cut jacket can be worn with so many different outfits, from the work outfit below to pairing it with a pair of jeans, a cute tee and ballet flats for dressy casual weekend wear. The classic pants can be worn to work or teamed with a cute blouse or tee and sneakers for weekend wear. These two pieces really are essential basics and should be in everyone’s wardrobe. Black heels are also an essential and the block heel offers comfort for long days on your feet. The beautiful silk blouse in blush adds a contrast of colour to the black outfit.

Weekend Elegance

I’m not sure about you but I live in jeans and skinny jeans offer a slimming effect that goes well with many type of shoes, like the cute ballet flats below. How gorgeous are they? Black jeans offer a smart alternative to regular jeans, as they look like black pants, but offer the comfort of jeans. Teamed with a beautiful flowing boho feel blouse, this outfit offers understated feminine elegance with maximum comfort.

The Perfect Dress

The June Embroidered Dress would be on high rotation in anyone’s wardrobe. With it’s classic styling and beautiful embroidery, it can be worn to parties, dinner out, events, weddings or even the races or polo. A cute statement clutch is the perfect accessory to keep your essentials in and the ostrich print leather wedge offers a gorgeous contrast and polished finish to this outfit.
