It is officially spring.Time to shed the winter doldrums, heavy clothes, boots and your winter handbag. Question is, what to buy for spring with so many choices, colors, shapes and sizes.
If you are looking for an investment bag that you will carry daily, it is wise to stick with a classic shape and color. Go for a nude, khaki or camel envelope bag. This timeless style comes in a plethora of sizes with a variety of handle or strap options.
A hot spring trend is the Chain Gang bag. All the designers, Louis Vuitton, Bottega, Oscar, and of course Chanel are offering a spring chained up bag. This is a great option to be on trend and add a touch of sophisticated edginess.
Buy your classic or a chain bag, but also purchase a colorful tote. These splashes of spring can be found everywhere in a variety of costs. Color blocking, stripes, two tone or a great straw bag will add a bight crisp pop to any outfit. My Sister Closet has a great selection of designer and favorite bags. Ranging from $24.50 up to the designer level of Christian Dior and Prada as shown below.
Another great buy for Spring and into summer is a Hot White Bag. Keep it clean by finding a cool texture of patent leather that doesn't show a little dirt. Since this is a seasonal trend bag try and keep it under $100.00.
What good does any of this shopping and sourcing do if we do not know how to carry the handbag. We must look to our friends on the runways and listen to Ken Downing as he tells us to wrap the bag under our forearm and hold it with our hand.
A new handbag is a fun shopping experience. it is always and easy fit and requires little effort to try on. Do look in a full length mirror to be sure the bag is in proportion with you size. We no longer need to carry the kitchen sink. Keep It Simple...
