The Princess Of Wales Favourite Aspinal Handbag Is 20% Off Right Now

The Princess of Wales outfits are typically absolutely gorgeous from head to toe, but if we were to select one thing that she always gets right - it's her accessories.

Kate has mastered the art of wearing the same shoes, jewelry, and handbags in new, creative ways, from her sparkling emerald Monica Vinader earrings to her comfy but stylish Veja trainers. We can't get enough of her go-to Midi Mayfair bag, which is featured in Aspinal of London's Black Friday sale. Fans of the brand can currently save up to 50% off leather goods and accessories, as well as 20% off this specific bag.

We first saw Kate with the Mayfair in 2018, and we've seen her with it on several occasions since then, most notably in February on her solo official visit to Copenhagen. She wore her trusted Aspinal bag with a red Zara tweed blazer and sleek black slacks, and the gold metal hardware matched the buttons on her jacket for the ultimate professional appearance. Kate styled the Mayfair with a stylish khaki-green coat for a public outing in Bradford in January 2020. In 2018, the Duchess of Cambridge chose the Mayfair for a visit to Leicester City Football Club. She went for a vintage look this time, opting for a grey swing coat.

There's no getting around the fact that this purse is pricey. However, if you want to invest in this simple necessity, now is the moment to do so. Kate's go-to handbag is normally £595, but Aspinal of London has reduced the price by £119 in honour of Black Friday. There's no denying that £476 isn't cheap, but this handbag is a worthwhile investment — and you'd be hard pressed to find a better deal or even a quality lookalike for the price. It's made of tough full-grain leather and has a tough grosgrain-lined interior that's meant to last a lifetime.

The Mayfair will undoubtedly be the most versatile piece in your closet, and as Kate has demonstrated, it will match all of your previous looks. While we've only seen Kate carry her Aspinal bag on royal occasions, you could use it every day if you wanted. The delicate handle, patent mock-croc, and vintage-looking clasp make it classic and sophisticated enough to pair with a fancy evening gown and heels. However, because of its roomy midi size and practical cross-body strap, you could also wear it with jeans and sneakers for errands or a smart suit for the office.

What is the finest feature of the Aspinal of London Midi Mayfair bag? There are 15 different variations, each with a different colour, pattern, or material. Kate has been seen with it in two different colours: her go-with-everything black purse and a gorgeous lilac variant that she wore in 2018 at a health summit. So, whether you want to add a splash of colour to your clothing or something more subtle, you've got plenty of possibilities, ranging from a summery tan raffia to an expensive-looking burgundy crimson. Would you believe it, every single one of them is currently on sale?

Kate owns more than one Aspinal purse, including the Mayfair Midi. During a visit to a children's hospice in 2019, she wore the Blue Heart handbag. This one was created in collaboration with Beulah London, another of Kate's favourite brands, and while it is sadly no longer available, we have found a similar style for you. What's more, guess what? It is also available for purchase.

We all want Kate's appearance (without the high price tag), and although we may not be able to purchase one of her luxury gowns, snagging this bag on sale is a less expensive approach to achieve Kate's easy style. However, you should act quickly since, while Aspinal of London's Black Friday sale has arrived early and will last at least a few days, these prized bags are rarely reduced and are certain to sell out quickly.
