It Takes Two, Baby! Why Two Bags are Better than One

Hey there, Jelly fans! Are you ready to take your style game to the next level and embrace the delightful trend of accessorising with double the joy?


At Sun Jellies, we believe that sometimes more truly is more when it comes to expressing your individuality through fashion. Let’s dive into the world of accessory layering and why it’s the trend that everyone is buzzing about.

Accessory Layering and the ‘Double Bag’ Trend


Why stop at one bag when you can carry multiple? We’ve been doing this for years haven’t we – juggling handbags, laptop bags, shopping, baby-changing totes, and purses! However, this year, ‘on-the-go fashion’ has broken through to the catwalk with overspilling totes and baskets galore, often decorated with charms, chains and trinkets.


We’ve spied lots of smaller, top-handled purses carried over larger totes and carryalls. So, whether you’re after some extra storage space, or want to add an extra pop of colour to your look, then jump on board! Pick a large to medium base (like our Atomic Tote, Betty Basket or Large Retro) which you can pair up with a smaller, mini (or micro!) bag to give an extra layer of colour, shape or texture. It’s fashion for real life – but that doesn’t mean it can’t be fun and playful too. Let’s find out how…

Having Fun with Proportions


You have the power to turn a simple outfit into an amazing expression of your unique self by playing with different shapes and sizes. Micro bags are still all the rage this year (shout out to our Mini Retro Baskets!), with designs even smaller than your average mobile phone strutting down the catwalk. On the other end of the spectrum, we’re seeing giant tote bags from many designers, making it a season of accessory extremes. And that’s where the double-bag look comes in perfectly!


Speaking of extremes, we can’t get enough of the oversized tote craze that has taken over the accessories world. These spacious companions combine practicality and style effortlessly, allowing you to carry all your essentials while looking absolutely fab. No more rummaging through cluttered pockets for your keys! With bag layering, you can enjoy the convenience of effortlessly carrying everything you need.


Our Atomic Tote and Fiesta Shopper are here to save the day as the roomiest Jelly Bags in our collection! They offer plenty of space for all your shopping and daily essentials. With locking handles, these bag styles keep all your goodies safe and snug. They offer a blend of practicality and retro glamour that will bring joy to every outing!

Connecting the Dots: Accent Points & Splashes of Colour


Accessorising is all about the details. Use accent points and pops of colour to tie your look together seamlessly. Whether you’re a fan of bows, ribbons and trinkets, or prefer a more understated approach, adding a playful touch of whimsy to your outfit is a fun idea. Bow stacking is a growing trend that’s set to continue into 2024. They’ve been seen layered up on everything from outfits and bags to nails, hair and cakes!


If you’d like to add an extra injection of jelly joy into your outfit then make sure you check out our Itty Bitty Bag Charms. These super cute teeny tiny versions of our bags can clip onto your jelly basket (or anything else you like!) and echo the trinket and charms trend that is going to remain big for 2024.


Here at Sun Jellies, we’re all about adding pops of colour and brightening up your day! So, whether you’re mixing berry pink with royal blue for an 80’s nod, or layering up black and white for a sophisticated monochrome look, we’ve got you covered. If you’re channelling a 90’s kitsch vibe, or embracing 50’s vintage style, the key is to wear your accessories with confidence. Mix and match with joy to create a look that is uniquely you.
