Shoes might make an outfit but a handbag definitely completes it. Small or big, tote or clutch, a good handbag sets the overall tone of an outfit and most of us ladies are prepared to spend almost all our savings on a stylish handbag we have spent many nights dreaming about. For many women, handbags are the most expensive items on our shopping list and yet are often the most satisfying purchase. We want our bags to communicate our fashion savviness and know-how.
Sometimes even clothes take a second place to this most covetable of accessories as the pleasure that comes with snapping up the perfect arm candy can even outweigh the thrill of spending money on a body hugging summer dress.
2016 has been all about the wow factor for the most beloved accessory and we have selected a few of our favourite blue bags in the colour blue that will complete your outfit in the most stylish way and make you stand out.
One of our favourite blue bags is by India Mimi. Made in Italy, this tote bag is minimalistic in style and spacious in size. Crafted using the finest vegetable-tanned Italian leather it is unlined for a clean-cut, contemporary finish. With its sleek silhoutte the bag is suited for every occassion from everyday use to travel. It’s the ultimate investment in timeless, versatile style.
For a day look, this Faux leather shirt dress by AMENPAPA complements the blue hue of the leather bag. You can choose to accentuate your waist by pairing the dress with a HOSS INTROPIA thick waist belt or you can wear it just as it is. A pair of stylish heels by Kim Kwang will add a bit of glamour and style to the outfit. Throw in a pair of CHRISTIAN ROTH vintage oversized black sunglasses and an ABBOTT LYON gold watch for an elegant finish.
Next on our favourite blues is this gorgeous KIM KWANG mio alligator and calf bag. The Genuine Alligator & Calf leather Mini Messenger hand/shoulder bag is hand crafted in Italy and has such a stylishly sleek exterior that makes it suitable for many occassions.
For a dinner out with some friends or colleagues, pair up this hot bag with ANTIPODIUM’s stunning and comfortable culotte trousers in ivory. The colour is rich and elegant and features well with DORIANE VAN OVEREEM’S fabiola metallic leather top. Spice up the outfit with some jewelry from JOUBI and LARA BOHINC and finish your look by wearing DE SIENA’S amazingly crafted myrcella animal printed sandals.
A little mixture of black and blue never hurts as seen on this beautiful HIBOURAMA valentine calfskin shoulder bag. The VALENTINE HandBag is a chic and accessible luxury accessory characterized by a sophisticated and flawless craftsmanship. This must-have bag, with its classic colours, will make a chic addition to your wardrobe. Spacious enough to hold lots of essentials, it is perfect to be worn during your days or nights out.
Style it with this glamourlous gilet by RICHARDS RADCLIFFE worn over a sheer black georgette shirt by HEMYCA and an orbiane black jacquard mini skirt by FETE IMPERIALE. Complete the look with KIM KWANG’s baby calf leather ankle boots and ZOHARA black plain tights and throw in a pair of CHRISTIAN ROTH sunglasses to make a wonderful impression.
Another blue masterpiece from INDIA MIMI is the ISADORA TOTE BAG. Crafted from premium-quality Italian leather that has been vegetable tanned for a natural look, the blue Isadora tote will elevate even the simplest of outfits. The identifying fold-over top flap is as much of a practicality as it is a design feature; it hides the top zip fastening and creates a sleek silhouette. Carry it in the crook of your arm throughout the week, switching your office must-haves for off-duty essentials.
Carry this bag and enjoy a brunch out wearing BODY FROCK’s sunflower strapless dress in ivory worn under this lovely FETE IMPERIALE cardigan for some warmth. Pair the outfit up with DE SIENNA’s melysandre ankle sandals in beige. Touches of jewelry from EDGE OF EMBER will complement the soft feminine feel of this look.
Add some eccentricism to your look with Givenchy’s Pandora Sugar shoulder bag. Crafted from leather, this Italian-made bag has an unstructured design, silver-toned hardware for an added touch of designer-luxe and an optional shoulder strap, allowing you to work this bag into any outfit.
For a trendy eccentric look, pair the bag with RAOUL’s stylish Tribeca suede culottes in soho red. The rich colour and the stylish cuts of the culottes add a captivating look to this outfit and together with AMENPAPA’s white cold-shoulder top, KIM KWANG blue heel ankle boots and ESTABLISHED Nino Si sunglasses, prepare to turn heads wherever you go.
