How to Wear This Season’s Best Bags

Categories:Other Brands

This season’s must-have accessories are bright, bold and hard to miss providing a heavy dose of wow factor to your wardrobe; from satchels to backpacks and everything in between, the style is inconsequential; what’s important here is the print.

A print bag buying guide  seems a tough sell – less serviceable than black, navy or brown, and easier to get wrong than a sharp colourful bright. Plus, what if the patterns clash, or crash? The spring/summer catwalks were the most succinct and seductive argument – the season’s best bags were decidedly simple in form. Instead, it was the mix of bold textures and motifs that commanded attention. An all-encompassing line-up of designers opted for hard-hitting handbag proposals, allowing punchy accessories to take centre stage.
How to Wear This Season's Best Bags
Quite naturally, luggage aficionado Louis Vuitton lead the way – the monogram motif (a pattern in itself) was present, but this season it took a back seat in favour of embossed chain patterns with relief finishes, hologram-inspired lurid spray paint blotches, or swirling prints based on palm fronds or Hockney-ish blue pools. Marc Jacobs scribbled graffiti patterns or stamped sequin designs in stars and stripes of checkerboards across his accessories; meanwhile, over at Stella McCartney and Kenzo, bold baggage was taken quite literally with a primary colour palette of cobalt blue, yellow and heady reds. Their motif of choice? Stripes, though Stella built in seasonal tide with picnic blanket bucket bags swathed in gingham.

The high street have cottoned on to designers’ fixtations, giving us the chance to perk up our spring wardrobe with some serious colourful clout. Casting a bag as the leading protagonist in your outfit may seem unnerving at first, especially for those of us who cling to the safety of an all-black go-to, but it’s really quite simple. At its easiest, invert: wear black head to toe as a foil for a punchy handbag. But it’s important to let this trend take you out of your comfort zone so don’t be afraid to go big and bold; accessories can really set the tone of your entire get-up. If you’re still not convinced then ease in with modest stripes but for those of you who live on the wild side it’s time to get matchy-matchy; try opting for a bag that mimics the print in your outfit so be it gingham, pinstripes or florals make sure your bag follows suit.

While graphic bags are surely having a fashion moment circa right now, you will be glad to have invested in such an identifiable item for season’s to come. Ensure the shape is a classic and there’ll be plenty of wear guaranteed, provided you don’t mind being the centre of attention. This is after all, a trend that defies to go by unnoticed and neither will you.

Green Diane von Furstenberg Tonda Raffia Clutch Bag Silver Chain

Categories:Other Brands


Green Diane von Furstenberg Tonda Raffia Clutch Bag Silver Chain

Baby pink and mint are my favorite colors at the moment. By themselves they are gorgeous but when the two colors are put together they make one stunning duo. I just bought an iPad mini case that has a baby pink cover but the inside is mint. It’s gorgeous and I’m obsessed with it. With that said, any accessory that comes remotely close to featuring these two colors I’m instantly in love with. The Diane von Furstenberg “Tonda” Raffia Clutch is a fine example of this. The colors aren’t 100% the same but boy do they look beautiful together! This is by far the prettiest clutch I’ve seen so far in 2013 and I wouldn’t mind owning it!


I haven’t seen a two-tone colored bag in a while but I’m absolutely loving the “Tonda”. When a handbag is two-tone you can match it up with a variety of outfits. The pro about the “Tonda” clutch is that the colors are very Spring looking which makes it a great accessory to have for the upcoming season. I personally do not like it paired up with the wardrobe choice of the model in the stock photo. This clutch would look so much better with an outfit that is on the light side or just a simple all black or all white outfit. However, whatever colored outfit you decide to wear while you hold this clutch I’m sure it will look amazing. The clutch is different looking and that alone will catch attention.
