Alex Jones turned heads with her statement accessory at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, and we're absolutely here for it. The television presenter arrived at the prestigious event with a very ''on brand'' handbag that encapsulated the occasion.

Made by Lulu Guinness, this remarkable accessory just happens to be one of the best designer handbags under £1000. The bag features a woven basket design, decorated with bell petals crafted from faux pearls and fabric leaves, giving off the effect of a bouquet in full bloom!

While Alex Jones' whole look was undoubtedly noteworthy —a white summer dress with a blue floral pattern— it was the unique handbag that took centre stage. The accessory cleverly fuses fashion and nature, a perfect way to commemorate the historic event that has been running for over a century on the Royal Hospital grounds.

Jones' bag has to be one of the best designer bags worth investing in, it is playful and slightly unconventional but still affords a sophisticated air in line with the event's dress code. Alongside the bag, the presenter wore a white summer dress from LK Bennett, paired with open-toe green heels, a perfect outfit for summer formal occasions.

And, if you are struggling with what to wear to a wedding, this accessory should be at the top of your list, pair with a floral dress or bold colours to add some artistry to your ensemble. Or wear this piece to more informal outings, to liven up simpler summer looks such as jeans and your best white trainers.
