Handbags play a dual role in our life, we have them for practicality and for style as well and My love for hand bags knows no bounds. Well who doesnt love handbands, if given a choice I will try and get one bag in every shape and form. You can read all about the latest trends in handbags here from my last post.
By Practical I mean – we buy handbags that can hold everything, are versatile (who wants a bag which can be worn with only one outfit)
By Style I mean – a bag which along with being practical has a personality and can add a bit of oomph or style to the outfit
Hence a handbag is a mix of style and practicality to all of us, an accessory which has a bit of function along with adding that extra punch to the outfit. A handbag is not an impulse item, if you decide to splurge on a bag make sure you take care of your bag properly by storing it right.
This season I have added a new handbag to my collection, a new style which i didn’t have in my wardrobe before. Something that represents my current style and state of being.
So here is the big reveal – the new addition to my wardrobe is the YNOT London Kiss Tote. No brownie points for guessing why I chose the London theme bag.
But if you didn’t, well it’s because I love the London and the bag which represents one of my favourite cities in the world. This is a kind of bag that you can style with any outfit to instantly add oomph to your outfit. Tote bags is always a great style for both work and casual days. You can use it for shopping and stuffing small items in your bag and also to add grace and polished look to your outfit.
Here, I have paired this with a grey boyfriend blazer and stripe tshirt and blue ankle length jeans.
Weekend is meant to be a relaxed time of the week and when you are doing different things like meeting friends, shopping etc. and a stripe top can be versatile and be paired with lot of things to create new looks.
To add oomph to the outfit when going out with friends I instantly added a platform heels and a statement bag and voila it was a look to kill for but very effortless, in nutshell such looks makes you look great without looking like you tried too hard for it.
I even pushed my hairs into a ponytail to make sure they looked sleek.
Also, here are some of the tips on how to style a handbag –
- Make sure you buy a bag which you can carry from day to night and pair up with multiple outfits
- Get bags in different shades, if you have lots of black and grey bags they will look the same so make sure you have prints and coloured bags in your wardrobe too, to add versatility to your outfits
- Bags with defined shapes look better than the slouchy ones any day
- Invest more in a bag that you will carry all day and the occasion wear bags can be where you can save some bucks by buying bags from high street brands
Remember to be different and daring and not be afraid to experiment
YNOT? is a brand of bags and suitcases that combines traditional materials in original prints. The products “Ynot?” are the result of a long family tradition, begun in Milan in the 50s.
It is not just a fashion brand, but an invitation to freedom of expression: the products become, in this way, a media to communicate their own identity and emotions. The different collections are inspired by these values.
