Some people see luxury handbags as an unnecessary expense and many say that you're paying simply for the name. Others will disagree and say that they are one of the best investments that you can make, and they'd be right.

Essential rules for appropriate accessories

The fashion industry is evolving like never before.

With such a vast set of available accessories its hard to distinguish the right amount of additional 'stuff' that can enhance your look.

In a hope to appear more captivating, we tend to over exaggerate our style without the need for it in the first place.

The question is - how to avoid the unnecessary details of your look?

Let us take a look at what things you need to avoid in order to look tasteful and chic.

The Right Choice For The Right Occasion

The first rule to remember is that you should find accessories that compliment the colour of your outfit and your complexion.

A handbag is generally an accessory every woman needs to invest in, and choosing a high quality, and appealing Italian leather purse will match nearly any combination of clothing.

The right handbag, in a nutral colour can go with many styles and colours of clothing, and will stand the test of time and fashion changes too.

Bright colours in handbags and accessories such as scarves can be great, but be careful to choose them wisely so that you dont look more of a parrot than someone who has an undisputed taste for fashion.

Whenever you are unsure about your definitive choice of colours in accessories, go for blacks, whites and nutral tones, that prove to be adequate for nearly any occasion.

Details That Capture Everyone's Eye

Keep in mind that it is conceivable to combine large accessories together in one outfit, but there should never be more than two or three of them since you will never want to look overdressed.

Connecting with the material your accessories are made from is generally the right choice, and it can easily show off the level of style that you possess with just the right simple choice.

Try to conclude specifically what is that you want to achieve with your style, and only then add the additional accessories that will enhance the wanted outcome.

Needless to say, your makeup must be made out of colours that build on your outfit, or in a stylish contrast, which might even be the better choice for most occasions.

When in doubt, going for classic and traditional choices is always the right idea, since the general rule "Less is more" does indeed apply to your style and you never know who will compliment your outlook, with the stylish simplicity that you brought with yourself in your new favourite outfit.

The Perfect Purses for Autumn & Winter

For many, autumn and winter are a new chance to swap out those summer and spring styles for cold weather classics, like fuzzy sweaters, knit hats, and purses that complement your seasonal attire. It’s time to start off fresh again, and breathe some life into your wardrobe! Don’t throw away all your old bags, but adding some new classics to your closet for the new season will help make it easy to create the wardrobe looks you wait all year long to show off! Here are a few purse styles and shapes that will help you upgrade your collection from old to new again - without completely modifying your current collection.

Micro-mini

Minimising is in and with these micro minis all you need is your phone, credit card, and a lip gloss for the perfect night out. This is ideal for those cocktail dress nights out on the town, where you don’t want to lug around your regular mini bag.

Unique Clutches

The classic clutch never goes out of style. This autumn and winter, try a clutch that is a little more unique, like a hard plastic acrylic bag or a woven clutch - they make for an artistic touch to any outfit, and are a true statement pieces of their own. You can find simple envelope style cross-body clutches, as well as intricate textured designs. Try pairing these with a casual pair of jeans and blouse to really make it stand out.

Doctor Bag

This old-school look will have you replacing your classic totes with a much cleaner and more professional look. Totally roomy, you’ll love stuffing this bag with all your work and daily necessities! Match this with any office look or your date night apparel for a sophisticated style that’s versatile for your day-to-night lifestyles.

Belted Bags

You may be thinking fanny pack at the mention of belt bags, but this strappy design is a great autumn accessory, especially when hitting up those outdoor activities and festivals. Out of sight and out of mind, the strap fits snug around your waist when adjusted properly and won’t steal the show away from your outfit. When you’re out and about, pair your belt bag with your favourite leggings and comfy sweater!

Decorative Pouches

Not quite a clutch, and not quite a wrist-let, this combo makes it easy to grab and go. The pouch design is also super flexible, and makes it easy to throw in all sorts of necessities without cramming items in like a puzzle to fit just right. This little bag makes the perfect accessory for those fun dates nights! Whether you’re hitting the local carnival, or go-kart raceway, this flexible bag will look great with your semi-casual attire.

Scarf Strap

Yes, that’s right! A purse with a scarf strap has the combination of fashion and convenience — all in one. The soft strap won’t weigh heavy on your neck and shoulder, and will look creative too! Scarf straps allow more room for creativity, with bold and exciting patterns, and colours that add a little something to your little black dress.

Circle Purse

Don’t be a square, and hop on board to this vintage comeback! The circle purse usually features a small wrist-let to hold onto, and a convenient snap closure. Circle bags have been massively popular this year, and it’s easy to see why - this retro look will pair great with a short and sassy dress for parties, and bring that old-school design we all dream about!

Lady Bags

Super clean and minimal, this classic purse means business. The sleek look will create a sophisticated style when matched with your office wear, and can easily go from work to happy hour! Dressed up or dressed down, it’s easy to match this feminine look to almost all your wardrobe styles.

Ring Handle Bag

Switch out your evening clutches for something a little more modern, like the new ring handle bag. This look brings a retro vibe and makes going out more fun when you can let it hang from your wrist, rather than struggling to carry it tucked under your arm all night. This little sidekick will look classy when you match it with your sleek trouser suit outfits.

Bucket Bags

There’s a new modern twist to the traditional bucket bag. These bags keep their structured design, but offer a little more fashion to them with special designs like woven looks to add a little something to your everyday attire. The bucket style makes it easy to carry an assortment of things with you at all times. Whether you’re a mum on-the-go or a busy manager, this is the bag that has all the room you need.

Switch It Up
