We will talk about handbags and the identity that they have gained in guest looks because they bring elegance and a lot of class. But beyond special occasions, it is increasingly fashionable to reuse this accessory. Those of you who follow me already know that I am a firm opponent of keeping shoes and a party bag in the closet: you have to take them out and wear them with sportswear.
In the last few years, handbag designs have become more varied and versatile. They offer a range of styles, from classic and timeless to bold and creative. Handbags now come in different shapes, sizes, and materials, allowing people to express their own personality and fashion choices. In this post Albeli has described some useful tips.
Evolution of Handbags
Let’s take a moment to appreciate the long history and evolution of handbags. From their humble beginnings as practical pouches, they have become symbols of elegance and sophistication. Handbags are an essential part of the fashion industry, inspiring designers and fashion enthusiasts alike. So, the next time you grab your favourite handbag to complete your outfit, remember that you’re carrying a piece of fashion history and contributing to the ever-changing world of style.
There’s a growing focus on sustainable and eco-friendly fashion, which has also influenced handbag design. Many brands are now prioritizing ethical practices and using eco-conscious materials to make stylish and environmentally friendly handbags.
In today’s fashion world, handbags make a strong statement in both formal and everyday outfits. They are not just accessories; they also reflect a person’s identity, taste, and values. Whether you prefer a classic leather handbag, a stylish clutch, or a trendy crossbody, there’s a handbag for every occasion and personal style.
From jeans to black skinny jeans, going through a casual dress, a skirt, a top, etc. It is a perfect way to give ourselves a ‘chic’ touch with a single gesture and to feel tidy when, for example, we finish a work day and want to go out for a drink or dinner with friends or family.
Now, what are the keys to getting the most out of a portfolio and showing it off wonderfully? Pay attention!
In 90% of cases, the charm of a handbag lies in creating colour contrasts with clothing. The most beautiful thing about carrying a bag is that it stands out from the background, that it is a point of light or dimming, as the case may be, and that it draws attention, but in a harmonious way.
When choosing the colour, other elements must be taken into account, such as the earrings, the headdress, etc. And it is possible that sometimes the most flattering thing is that the colour of the bag is integrated into the clothes so as not to generate too much noise. But in most cases, bet on the contrast.
There are wallets of many sizes and shapes, and when choosing ours, an important factor such as height must be taken into account. It would not be nice, for a person who is not very tall, to carry a bag that is too big. Especially if you are also wearing a large hat or headdress, for example.
The trick is to compensate. In a guest or street look, you have to know how to balance the sizes and shapes of the clothes and all the accessories. That is why I advise that before choosing the bag, you keep in mind your height and what other accessories you are going to wear.
As I indicated in the introduction to this post, the handbags have not been designed to remain stored in a drawer or in the attic of your closet once you have released them. Take them out, enjoy them and take advantage of them because they are the most practical.
Now is an ideal time to carry a wallet, when we go for a walk and need to carry our basic personal belongings. A flowing and fresh maxi dress, for example, is filled with style just by replacing the shoulder bag with a handbag.
Just as we take care of our makeup or hair, we also have to pamper our hands, which says a lot about personal care. Keep in mind that when carrying a bag, we focus on the hands.
That is why one of the tricks that I always resort to is to wear a nice bracelet or bracelets, or even a jewel belt, which also stands out a lot from the bag and diverts attention if we do not have the ideal manicure or our hands are slightly wrinkled. These are small gestures with which we can ally ourselves to extol and highlight how beautiful we are, which in each one of you is a lot.
