We all know the confidence boost that can come from a perfectly pulled together outfit. You walk a little taller and feel like the best version of yourself. You’re ready to conquer anything. Head-to-toe styling creates a polished look, and always requires a little piece of arm candy to complete the look. We broke down two of our favorite fall handbag trends that will make you feel like a million bucks, whether you are heading out to dinner or to a big job interview.
1.) Don’t Be Flat. Texture Tease.
The first trend we are loving is all about texture. This season’s hottest bags feature everything from slick patent leathers, rich animal embossing, intricate weaves, and nubby fabrics that evoke opulence with every wear. A textured bag can make even the flattest outfit pop. Pick textured bags in deep or neutral colors and avoid venturing into the vivid color spectrum, which can risk your NEW handbag looking less than luxurious.
2.) Be Bold. Rock White After Labor Day.
If texture isn’t your thing or you are ready to add additional pieces to your collection, our second trend seems to break all Fashion 101 rules. Yes, it’s time to be bold and ditch one of the oldest rules in the style book…wear white after Labor Day! These crisp clean bags add a polished look to any ensemble and work all the way through winter. For a groundbreaking fall look, pair one of these white bags with an outfit composed of whites and creams, and accent the look with one jewel-toned piece, such as an oxblood-tone belt or emerald blazer. You’ll instantly feel pulled together and ready for the fresh, fall season.
Whichever trend you choose, make sure to rock it with confidence and pride!
