In the world of fashion, there are so many do’s and don’ts- don’t wear black and dark brown together, do wear contrasting tops and bottoms, don’t look tacky, do wear vintage… It’s an endless list!
Looking good takes a lot of effort, but the amount of effort you put depends on the kind of look you want to pull. Want to look like a million buck? Then you have to put in a million buck effort.
Now, it’s not literal- you don’t have to actually spend a million dollars, but with the right things in place, you’d look like you stepped out of the pages of a fashion magazine.
At the top of the list of things that must be in place when it comes to style and fashion, your handbag stands tall and high. Handbags have graduated from a portable means of ‘transportation’ for small to medium-sized stuff, and have become major fashion items.
The type of handbag a person carries can be the reason why they look like they’re from some alternate universe, and can be the reason why everyone wants to know who they’re wearing. It all depends on knowledge.
Below are some tips on how to properly utilize the power that handbags have-
- BRIGHT HANDBAGS LIGHTEN UP TONED DOWN LOOKS-
Some days, you are just in the mood to put on dark colors, which can do the opposite of what you seek to achieve (which is an elegant look, of course), except you accessorize properly. Colors like red, pink, and bright orange will do the job by adding color and interest.
Similarly, if you’re looking ‘shiny’ already, then bright colored bags may not be your best choice. It’s a good idea to tone down the entire look a bit by using a neutral-colored bag.
- AN OVERSTUFFED BAG WILL RUIN THE MISSION!
Like I said earlier, it’s beyond carrying things about- the goal is to look chic. A bag stuffed with too much gives a sloppy look. Still, we have to convey our stuff! Well, besides leaving behind unnecessary items, if you MUST carry a lot of things, get a large bag.
- INVEST IN WELL ADORNED BAGS
There is no adornment like a handbag that has all the right things. Go for heavy metal, girl!
- AVOID TOO ‘CUTESY’ BAGS
Even teenagers these days would walk past a bag with so much going on- bows everywhere, flowers at the top and bottom and the likes. This can never birth forth a luxurious look, no matter the number of permutation and combination.
- MATCH YOUR HANDBAG WITH YOUR SHOES
Yes, this move right here is the secret for an extra polished look. Not only will you look like you know what you’re doing, but you’d also look ‘cutepensive’ (don’t look it up, you’re not going to find it. It’s a word I formed from the words ‘cute’ and ‘expensive’. Word formation is probably not my thing’).
The saying ‘The way you dress is the way you’d be addressed’ might seem cliche and old fashioned, but those words have lasted for generations.
The result of your outlook may not be totally dependent on the handbag you carry, but your handbag could ruin or improve everything. Now that you know how to use the power of a handbag, proceed with elegance, girl!
