Outfit: Spring bags
If you want to re-energize your wardrobe, there is no better way to do it than with a new handbag.
Here’s a round up of the trends and how to make them work for you.
■ The envelope bag is a small shoulder bag that’s surprisingly roomy. Not folded, it’s a thin tote style bag, but folded down it becomes a demure, ladylike accessory. This is a timeless bag that balances any trendy ensemble.
■ A white handbag may seem all wrong for this time of year. However, this crisp color uplifts dark hues and complements the brighter shades of spring. Choose a textured bag as a more minimalist accent, or go glossy white for a bold style statement.
■ Colors and prints cannot be ignored this season. Whether it’s sassy stripes or delicate florals, these whimsical bags are everywhere.
No need to wait to incorporate a new spring bag into your wardrobe. This fresh crop is sure to add countless fashion possibilities.
