Matching Handbags, Footwear and Outfits
A trendy and carefully selected purse or handbag can elevate your outfit. A mismatching one can bring your look down, depending on how you wear it. If it’s messy it won’t look right, if it’s a sharp clean look it’s fine.
Old and New With Styles and Shapes
Whether you have an older style and shape, or newer updated one, the shiny look is always in. These can be used if you do not want to wear flashy fabrics, or just don’t feel like getting really dressed up. Popular shiny finishes are gold or silver bags along with pink, blue or purple.
Other looks can be different shapes like round ‘circle’ bags that you may not use every day, or drawstring tops, shiny accents like buckles, chains, rivets or broaches. Smaller handbags are in style that would only fit your mobile phone and a lipstick. It may not sound practical, but with the proper outfit and occasion it works, as shown in the image, with Taetske holding her smaller sized purse. This purse has a unique shape with multi colors that suit the outfit she has on.
From Casual to Dressy Handbags and Outfits
If you have a fairly active lifestyle and like to be hands free, purse style backpacks are the best option. Dressed up or down, they are perfect for easy removal when needed. You can’t really wear a waist pouch with a dressy outfit, it would mess up the waistline area. You can use one with any dress down casual look. There are many choices to choose from with many fabrics like leather or metallic for a dressed up look or denim, plastic or anything that is appropriate for a casual look.
Summery handbags that are decorated with flowers are always in style. Whether beaded, painted or embroidered, they make a nice addition to any outfit. They match any type of shoe also regardless of color since the flowery patterns are mixed colors. That goes with your choice of clothing also, as Taetske has with her own flower patterned purse and the same white outfit, showing you can match anything with white.
Matching Your Handbags With Footwear
Matching your handbags with shoes or boots is still ongoing, but not necessary. This trend slowly faded unnoticed, and it’s obvious we cannot always find an exact match unless you purchase them together as a set. A multicolored handbag will accommodate any plain shoe as Taetske shows her Leopard print handbag and plain beige shoes.
It all comes down to what we are comfortable with, and not what anyone else thinks, or what the style is for that period. Actually, anything is in style now, new and updated handbags or outfits give us a choice if we find something we like. Otherwise, using what we currently have like non matching, handbags and outfits are very much in style also, as Taetske Models in the image here.
I would like to thank Taetske who modelled and provided the pictures, using her own collection of purses and handbags, and her husband Michael for taking them. They reside in the South of Spain.
