More Spring Trends That Your Handbag Will Like
In my last article I talked about five top trends for this spring’s fashion trends that you could incorporate into your wardrobe more inexpensively by using your handbag. Here are five more trends and handbag styles that you won’t want to miss this spring.
Military coats were marching down the runway this spring and with them I think you should pair messenger bags. Since they are more relaxed they tone down the severity of a military coat yet at the same time a messenger bag can incorporate elements of a military style jacket such as the buttons, metallic accents, or rigid cut. This allows you to dress your look up or down depending on the military coat and messenger bag you choose.
Red dresses are the new vogue color this spring. However, if a red dress attracts a little too much attention for your taste than try a red handbag. Red bags are considered a neutral color because they can be carried with so much so they are always in style. Many celebrities favorite handbag is red because it attracts attention without being over the top.
My personal favorite trend is an increase of gray. Gray is such a lovely color because it is a neutral so it looks good on everyone and hides flaws, but it is not so depressing as black. I am definitely going to be on the lookout for a cute gray handbag to add to my collection this spring. Be sure to look for quality since this is a trendy bag that will last you several years.
Of course, we can’t have only solid colors this spring. Bring on the bold prints! The crazier, bolder, and bigger the better. While I am not brave enough to wear some of the wild dresses that the models on the red carpet sport, (I think I’ll leave those for Lady Gaga), I am brave enough to carry a boldly printed tote or diaper bag. What busy mom wouldn’t love the chance to spruce up her outfit with a bag that hides dirt?
Polka dots are another more outgoing fashion statement. I am kicking myself now for not buying the adorable polka dotted dress that I saw on clearance last summer, but who knew the trend would be so popular? This style would look good on just about any kind of handbag, from a clutch to an oversized hobo bag.
