With the holidays coming up, you might be in need of some outfit inspiration. While some may argue that diamonds are a girl’s best friend, we say its purses! An outfit can be completely transformed based on what bag or clutch you decide to take with you. From bedazzled to sheer, there are hundreds of different purse styles.
Whether you’re heading to a family dinner, a work party or the mall to do some last-minute gift shopping, there is a purse for everything. To help you achieve your dream holiday look, we’ve narrowed down our favourite purse styles that are trending this winter season.
It has become standard for straps to perfectly blend into the overall look and style of a bag. For as long as purses have been around, straps have typically been made of the exact same material and colour as the rest of the bag. However, this is changing.
Signature monograms have been introduced as fashionable ways to customize bags and wallets over the past couple of years. However, while monograms are a great idea for personalizing your accessory, owning a statement strap is the newest way to stay updated with the latest trends without buying a different bag for each outfit. Your straps can change with the seasons so that your bag doesn’t have to.
We recommend sticking to a staple bag in a neutral colour and styling it with a variety of outfits. From there, you can leave it to these changeable straps to add a unique touch to any holiday look. Some of the different types of statement straps include:
- Chained straps
- Scarf straps
- Fur straps
- Ring straps
When micro bags were first introduced to the world of online fashion, there was a mix of bright colours and fun patterns floating around the web. Furthermore, there was an intense competition going on between brands to see who could offer exactly what consumers wanted. However, that’s not the case anymore. Some of the world’s top designers are trying to answer the question, “Just how small can a bag actually get?”
On the latest runways of Dolce & Gabbana, Saint Laurent, and Marc Jacobs, we noticed that traditional bag boundaries are continuously being challenged. With space for your phone, lipstick, some cash and nothing else, micro bags are what they sound like: micro. If you’re looking for a practical accessory that you can fit in the palm of your hand, a micro bag is definitely for you!
While anything with a crocodile pattern goes in and out of style fairly quickly, you can trust that it’s making a comeback this winter season! From clutches to bags, crocodile print works on any size purse and is simple, yet elegant. We recommend pairing a crocodile cross-body with your best holiday outfit.
As seen on the runway, crocodile skin looks best in red and black but is also offered in a variety of colours.
A clutch is often seen as a symbol of sophistication. Carrying a clutch is a clear sacrifice of convenience for style. While the strapless ones are not the most practical, they add an elegant touch to all outfits.
Almost every runway this year featured at least one new clutch style. Our favourite? The oversized clutch. From oversized denim to oversized jackets, it is no secret that this trend has been a long-lasting one. However, we had no idea that it would carry onto purses.
While oversized clutches are made by many designers, we wonder if they are a bit too noticeable. Having an accessory that compliments your outfit is important, and a giant envelope clutch isn’t exactly subtle. What are your thoughts?
Although it may seem that the backpack trend is meant for students, we’re here to tell you that you too can rock any backpack style. Replacing your favourite handbag with a backpack may seem strange, especially if you’re no longer in school, but the fashion industry is proving this to not be the case. Brands such as Coach and Ralph Lauren have used dedicated and talented designers to create unique leather backpacks that are perfect for any daytime look.
Having a backpack makes it easy to store the things you’ll need throughout a winter day such as gloves, extra socks, or a light sweater.
