Do you have enough stylish handbags in your closet? Guess again...the handbags this season are taking fashion to another level. Bags fashioned of fur, suede, leather, patent leather, quilted fabric and simulated animal skins hit the catwalks, magazines and city streets with a vengeance. The resurgence of the patent leather bag surprised us all.
Bags with beads, sequins, buckles or clasps are the most eye popping items this year. Bags can be fantastic accent pieces, especially for the holiday season. A beautifully detailed bag can add some sparkle, pop and interest to an otherwise basic ensemble.
The fashion world is filled with top designers who bring fashionable bags to new and amazing levels, however sometimes the price of their products is a bit more than the average Fashionista is willing to pay. But there is hope ladies, many designers also offer affordable, stylish and fun bags without sacrificing quality and appeal.
Beaded or sequined handbags can be works of art and statement pieces. Beaded handbags, earrings, bracelets and other accessories can be fun and trendy accent pieces for a Fashionista of any age. Just remember not to over accessorize.
Let your imagination soar with new and old pieces alike. You can carry a beaded handbag to a formal or semi-formal event to add a bit of your personality. Handbags and purses add an unmistakable sense of femininity and charm to every silhouette.
Bags come in all shapes, sizes and styles. Whatever size or shape you choose, do make sure that the purse compliments your outfit. Bag sizes must be in proportion to your body size. Not every Fashionista can carry the huge bags that are seen in many fashion photos. Make sure the size of the bag isn't too overwhelming for your body frame.
Gone are the days when we would just grab a bag and dash out of the door. Now picking a handbag is done with the same precision as selecting the perfect shoe to compliment your outfit. Careful thought must be utilized when pulling your outfit together. Here's a freebie....choose handbags that can go with more than one outfit. This alleviates you from having to always purchase a bag to match your next show stopping outfit. Have in your repertoire a mixture of bag colors, textures and styles of which you can pull from to accent your outfit.
Let your bag speak volumes about the stylish Fashionista you are. Whatever bag you choose...do it with intention. Walk to the beat of your own drum ladies and be Fantabulous.
