Some say diamonds are a girl’s best friend and others claim that shoes are the true passion of every woman. However, each of us is different and has her own staple accessory that she relies on whenever she wants to spice up an outfit. For some women the best part is picking the bag! If you build a good basic outfit and put an interesting bag in the middle, it will totally change the message! Also, sometimes changing the bag from a large tote to a fancy clutch can transfer a cool
set from day to night.
This season bags are crazy, extravagant and everything but boring! The more strange details or colors the better. First, we need to mention the great fringe trend. Its boho spirit makes it suitable for both summer and fall, so it can be one of those pieces that you do not need to put away as the weather gets colder. Add a good suede material and you have yourself the perfect accessory! Whether it is black or purple, a tote or a clutch, the fringed bag is definitely a must-have for the 2014- 2015 season!
Another, even more peculiar trend, is the “ridiculous bag” one, where you can see bags in shapes that are very far from traditional After Moschino collaborated with Jeremy Scott for a McDonalds collection and created bags based on how a fast food meal looks, everything is just falling into place. Lulu Guiness’ “mouth bag”, Charlotte Olympia’s take away box bag or the book clutches by Olympia Le-Tan are just a small part of what designers have to offer. The strange, object- resembling clutch is another hit at the moment.
The backpack is also an item that has made its way from summer into fall. Its comfort and practicality definitely makes it a good choice. If you are not very bohemian in your style, youmay go for a leather one: its simple, basic, yet extravagant and unique. Polo Ralph Lauren, Rag & Bone and Michael Kors all have their versions of this reminder accessory from the past!
One that is one of the ultimate favorites is the bucket bag. It may not be the most practical if you are trying to find something quickly, but otherwise it is very cute. The cool thing is that it usually is medium-sized, so you can wear it to the office or to the club and it can work at both places! Every brand, from high end designers to high street labels, is offering their interpretation in different colors and materials, so it is not hard to find. Its long strap is another bonus!
Overall, except if you are the proud owner of a classic, clean Chanel 2.55 or Antigona bag by Givenchy, you can go as crazy as you want when choosing where you are going to carry your stuff during fall. But remember: you do not need to buy anything simply because it is popular, co-ordinate it with your style!
