Hi guys, I took a little break for the holidays, only posting a couple posts per day, but starting today, I'm back on track doing my usual 2+ blog posts every week.
Today, I wanted to be daring in the thing that I chose to focus on, because it's easy to find out how to wear the big styles, such as skinny jeans and blazers, but it's harder to find tips on how to wear things that are around, but not considered a 'trend.'
Today, I am going to be talking about bright coloured bags. Any kind will work, whether it's a clutch, a cross body bag, suede, leather, cheap, expensive, orange, electric blue. Any will do, as long as it's a bag, and it's in a quirky colour. I'm going to use electric blue as an example, because personally, that is my favourite colour for adding accent to a dull outfit.
First, start off with the bag you've chosen. I found a gorgeous electric blue Fiorelli satchel for £49/$75 from asos.com which sounds like a lot of money, but it's a good investment. You'll use a bag like this more than you'd think.
E.g. if you had a bright pink bag, you'd use tans and creams, and if you had a bright purple bag, you could use greys and near blacks. Since the bag I'm using is electric blue though, I'm using the most basic colour. Black. Black and blue always look beautiful together (Unless you're dealing with navy.)
I also want to make sure the clothes I use aren't very daring in their shape, fabric, and detailing, but at the same time, I don't want to end up just looking dull. I also don't want to have the same colour on the top and the bottom unless I'm dealing with a dress. This all sounds so complicated, but it really isn't. We're just going to add a top in the same colour as the bag, but toned down, so I'm using a pretty pale blue and turquiose colourblock cami from forever 21. This is only £12/$18 so that the outfit doesn't have such a dramatic total because of the expensive bag.
Thanks for reading! ☺
