That time is here again when fashion magazines and blogs are full of the latest trends and designs of handbags for the upcoming season. They are simply overflowing with the ‘it’ bags for the new season, but your search for the ideal and perfect bags and other accessories yields you nothing because what you have found are the advertisements of a handful of designer bags that are ridiculously overpriced. However, you don’t want that. What you want is a different and trendy look and you don’t want to spend your savings and your paycheck on something that’s going to be used and seen by everyone.
You can ditch the crowd by forgoing the designer handbags and still remain savvy and smart with some unique handbag trends that can be used in this season. Here are some of the options:
This is the new favorite bag as it plays the role of a versatile carry-all in the fall winter season. It can add structure and sophistication and can be used pretty much anywhere. There are endless occasions where you can sport this structured tote handbag because it can be dressed up or dressed down, depending on the requirement.
A svelte new makeover is given to shoulder bags and handbags this season with elongated frames. These ladylike bags are flattering and sleek and the best part is that they can keep all the volume without showing it off with the bulk.
Shades of Gray
The favorite color choice for this season runs the spectrum from white to black, but leaves plenty of room for matching and mixing with plenty of shades. When you are looking for a monochrome ensemble, handbags in gray shades look extremely great because they can be used as a neutral counterpart for the bold hues of this season.
Small Cross-Body Bags
Women on the go prefer the trend of cross-body bags. Not only are the useful when people are traveling light and running errands, but they can also be used as evening bags when bags embellished with fringe, metal accents or beads are purchased. The ideal part is that even if you go dancing, these will not fall off your shoulder.
The classic clutch has undergone an update this season and has taken a streamlined and sophisticated envelope shape that’s perfect for a glamorous night out. However, the rest of your outfit should represent a feminine and soft silhouette with these architectural accessories for avoiding a severe look.
An ultra-practical backpack is a must if you already haven’t gotten one. Once the exclusive item for school-goers, it has become an icon of modern and refined fashion and can be found in a multitude of colors and materials.
Menswear Inspired Shape
This season the runaway was taken by a storm by menswear and the same is applicable to accessories. A lot of briefcase, doctor and bowling bags are replacing the dainty shoulder purses and hobo bags for adding a masculine element to the wardrobe.
