BAGS Galore

24 Mar

Not quite sure what accessories you need to finish off the look of your new outfit?

Well, look no further. All you need is a cute summer handbag!

Bags are THE most important item this season. They are a very popular item with most women, as they can quickly make a simple outfit stand out. If you’re not confident with some of the new trends that are out this season, then don’t panic. Take a look at the following suggestions for handbags this summer, and you will be able to give off a trendy look without having to wear an outfit you’re not quite sure about.

Oversized bags.

Statements are really important this season. So what could be better than an oversized bag?

But why do we love them so much? Well, these are big bags (hence the name ‘OVERSIZED’), so it means that we can fit all of our stuff in them. I mean, c’mon, us women have a LOT of our own essentials. With a big bag, you don’t have the worry of cramming everything into a tiny little space. You can carry around everything you need with no worries!

If you’re feeling adventurous, choose a bag with an exotic print to make you stand out from the crowd. They help to give that extra ‘WOW’ factor to any plain looking outfit. However, make sure you match the prints accordingly… You don’t want to end up looking like your nan’s old curtains!

Colours.

This season, you will be witnessing a lot of bright colours. If you really want to get noticed (in a good way of course!), pick a bright coloured bag. This is a great tip if you’re not confident with buying a bright item of clothing. Block colours are going to be very popular. If you don’t want to buy those neon trousers just for the sake of looking fashionable, then just grab a neon bag instead!

Again, making a statement is really important this summer, and a bright coloured bag can help you do just that. As must of us know, 70’s revival is going to be huge this summer, and this is exactly what bright coloured bags are inspired by.

Electric blue and bright orange are going to be massive colours for this particular season. And any other neon colours. But you can splash out with whatever colour you like… Pink, Orange, Green, Yellow… You name it, there will probably be a bag for it! Again, just make sure you match the colours accordingly. Looking like someone has just thrown random paint colours at you is NOT a good look.

Clutch bags.

Even though big bags are in this summer, clutches are equally important. They are the perfect accessory for your summer party wear! Lets face it, you don’t want to be lugging around a huge bag all night. Personally, I think clutch bags are one of the cutest styles around. As well as looking cute, they’re just about big enough to fit in all your party essentials!

Frills and tassels seem to be making a big impact on clutch bags this summer, as well as all of our bright colours and patterned prints. The envelope bag is a popular style this season, and they come in a range of colours and styles. Animal print is going to be making its way back into the fashion world this summer, so you could grab a leopard print clutch bag to help bring out the ‘animal’ in you at night. So, go out there, grab yourself a pretty little clutch bag and get your dancing shoes on!

Shoulder/body bags.

These little numbers are another item that has been inspired by 70’s revival. The great thing about shoulder bags is that they look great in the day time, AND in the evening. It’s quite obvious from the name what these bags were made for… You wear them on your shoulders to help free up your hands. For example, wearing a shoulder bag when out on a long shopping trip means that you will have an extra bag to carry your shopping back. Result!

You can’t really go wrong with a shoulder or body bag – there are so many different styles out there that will suit everyone. They also come in different shapes and sizes. An oversized shoulder bag will probably be better for the day time, as it means that you can fit all of your essentials in one bag. Think back to this seasons idea of making a statement. With an oversized shoulder bag, you can do just that, as well as making it comfy to carry. However, elegant body bags are probably best with evening wear. Unlike clutches, you don’t have to constantly carry it in your hand for the whole night. Just sling it over your shoulder and voila! You can now party in comfort!
