Let’s chat about the Coach Shay Bag Review!

My friends! Let’s do a Coach Shay Bag Review! First of all, I hope you are all well, I know this year has been really hard… already… as was last year, but seriously, I hope you guys are doing ok. Anyway! Today I want to have a chat about the biggest handbag silhouette of the season; the a coach Shay bag. It’s having a real moment and I think I know why!

“Both laidback and take charge, our streamlined Shay Shoulder Bag is loaded with pockets inside and out to keep you perfectly organised.”

Why Everyone is Loving The Coach Shay Bag

After 84 years of staying home (ok that was a joke, but that old lady from Titanic is a mood, right?) the Coach Shay bag is exactly what we all need! Why? Let me explain! After near 12 months of staying home and wearing nothing but leggings, joggers and fluffy socks, are we really ready to wear real clothes again? I don’t know about you, but I feel weird wearing tights these days, I can barely stand up in heels and I feel uncomfortable wearing anything without stretch. I don’t know about you guys, but I feel like I need to ease myself into ‘civilian life’ again and by that I mean, ‘civilian clothing’!

I need dresses with stretch, shoes that look cute and feel comfortable and slouchy handbags which look sharp but can be slung under my arm like a tote bag. I feel like I need to look at my wardrobe and think ‘What will look good, but feel like pyjamas’. My friends, this is the ultimate cheat handbag. It looks smart, chic, simple and luxe, but it feels slouchy and easy. This is easy. It’s exactly what I need right now. Which is why the Coach Shay bag is one of the most popular Coach bag silhouettes at the moment!

Coach Shay Bag Price & discount code 

Here in the UK the Coach Shay bag is priced at £350 which feels really reasonable for a larger style hobo bag like this. The Coach pebble leather is my favourite and in my opinion the best quality leather and this timeless bag is a really fair and reasonable price at £350. However, if you sign up to the mailing list, you can get 10% off that price.

How to style it? 

the coach shay bag can be worn with so many outfits. It’s perfect for the office as an easy hobo bag which fits in everything you need. It’s smart, chic and practical. However, it also looks lovely worn with a blazer and jeans for an easy weekend look. Finally, if you are a vintage dress and chunky cardigan kind of girl; it’s a cute and easy bag to wear that way too. It can also be dressed up with a scarf hanging off it too! 

Three Ways To Wear 

The Coach Shay bag can be worn in three ways, as a top handle bag over your shoulder or in the crock of your arm. If you wear it this way, you can either take the second strap off for a cleaner look, or you can keep it on for a little extra detail and a slightly more casual look. The Coach Shay bag comes with a second detachable strap. This strap is adjustable so you can wear it over your shoulder at your perfect length depending on your style and size, or you can wear it as a cross body bag for a hand free, easy mom look. Just an FYI here, Coach have started doing a few bags which come with two straps and I REALLY love this detail. It gives us the freedom to choose how we want to wear the bag that day and the ability to style it in different ways for different occasions. The Coach Tabby Bag is another bag which comes with two straps and it’s one of the reasons I love it so much!

Coach Shay Bag Branding

Interestingly, the Coach Shay bag comes with a noticeable lack of branding. It of course has the iconic luggage tag which has ‘Coach’ printed into it, but in terms of metal hardware, it’s got barely any. As much as I usually love a good bit of branding, I actually love the super slick, clean look to this bag and I’m so happy it’s not heavily branded. Sure if you looked closely you would see the Coach in the luggage tag or on the zip pull, but the quality of the leather does the talking with this bag and all you need to know is that it’s a luxury handbag! Funnily enough, my favourite EVER Coach bag, the Rogue follows a similar branding story, that only has very subtle branding in the rivets and on the removable luggage tag and I LOVE that bag. It’s truly all about the thick, equestrian pebble leather! 

Coach Shay Shoulder Bag Review!

The Coach Shay bag is next on my personal Coach wishlist. It’s only just come out so I haven’t ordered it yet, but from what I’ve seen, it’s truly wonderful! It reminds me a lot of the Rogue bag thanks to its subtle branding, large shape, minimal styling and luxe leather. I love it for its ease of use and durability. It’s exactly what I need right now; smart, sharp, comfortable and easy. It’s also a brilliant price point!

worth the money?!

 The coach Shay bag is 100% worth the money! It’s chic, stylish classic and the leather is dreamy! This bag has been out for a couple of years now and it’s still a really desirable bag without being oversaturated. 10/10 and if you can get it on sale… go for it!
