5 Ways to Wear A Cambridge Satchel Co. Leather Bag - Cambridge Satchel

One of the many things we love about our leather bags is the fact you can style them in different ways to suit your individual style.

Our aim is to create bags that last a lifetime, and because your style is likely to evolve over the years, this means being able to adapt your bag to how you look throughout your life. That’s why we have come up with a few fun ways in which you could style your bag.

Do you wear your bag in a way that’s a little different and want to share it with us? Tag us on Instagram with #WearItYourWayCSC (this will also enter you into our competition to win a second bag from us!).

Below, we’ve listed out some of the different ways we wear our Cambridge Satchel bags:

1. Add a scarf.

With spring upon us, you might be looking for new ways to add a pop of colour to your bag. We’ve added a beautiful, printed scarf with a small selection of our leather bags.

Simply wrap the scarf around the handle of one of our Bowls Bags to give it a little something extra. Notice how the Racing Green complements the contrasting pink tones within this scarf.

Why not tie your scarf around the opening of The Isla to add an extra chic touch? You can pair almost any scarf with this bag, thanks to the beautiful dark navy finish.

There is no way we could forget one of our best-selling leather handbags, The Pushlock. We didn’t think that anything could make this bag more elegant, but we were happy to be proven wrong!

We’ve wrapped the scarf around the handle of this handbag to create a pop of colour - and quite frankly, we’re in love with the result.

2. One shoulder Bowls Bag

With its unique shape, The Bowls Bag has become one of our best-selling leather bags. Based on a traditional antique Bowls Bag from the 1930s, we have updated it to become the standout bag it is today.

You can wear The Bowls Bag in a range of different ways. Thanks to its top handle, it can be held as a handbag, or it can be worn crossbody via its detachable strap.

Below, we’ve attached the detachable strap onto just one of the clasps to lengthen it and allow it to be worn on one shoulder, making it easier to slip on and off if you’re in a rush.

3. One for the Zoey 101 fans…?

Let’s take it back to the early 2000s, and more specifically 2005, when Zoey 101 graced our TVs!

We’re not ashamed to admit that we were a little jealous of Zoey’s key necklace. Well, did you know that with every one of our Sophie bags, you can find a little key inside?

This key isn’t just for show; it will lock up your Sophie and keep its contents secure. We were inspired by Zoey and thought: why not add it to a chain and make this little key a stylish accessory?

Please note the gold chain is not included when purchasing The Sophie.

4. Turn your Cambridge Satchel Co. bag into a bum bag this festival season

With summer fast approaching, that only means one thing. Festival season is around the corner, and with that comes the annual return of the bum bag!
We’ve used The Pushlock’s detachable strap to place the bag around our hips to sit like a bum bag.

Hide the crossover of the straps under the top of the bag and use the fastener to secure it to your waist.

We’ve highlighted the steps below so you’re able to follow along:

1. Wrap the detachable strap around your waist and pull through the clasps

2. Cross the straps over each other and clip them onto the opposite rings to secure the bag to your waist.

The Pushlock straps have been threaded through the two bronze connectors and crossed over under the opening of the bag

3. Clip each side of the strap onto the relevant rings.

4. Once both sides have been fastened on, you can close the bag.

5. You now have the summer festival bag of your dreams!

5. Add a Mini Purse for the essentials you need to grab easily.

Clip your Mini Purse to your bag’s detachable strap to be able to access the essentials with ease.

Maybe you’re on your way to a festival and want your tickets to be easily accessible.

You might have been out with your friends during the day and need your go-to essentials right there with you.

Our Mini Purses are available in a range of different colours – why not mix and match them and brighten up your outfit this summer?
