Hey style sunday peeps hope you had a good week. Its been a huge
while and I am happy to be back. So, the clutch, hand/sling purse, murse (man
bag) and generally, fab and cute bags are back on the platform this summer not only to events but on a day to day basis, depending on what you are sporting.
For my gurls who by the way run the world, Your clutch/purse suggests your
style, kind of person and adds that one last tint you need to your ensemble.
Its lady like, could be fierce or playful.
Okay, now I know our brothers in the
Lord are getting uninterested thinking bags apply to just the sisters but sorry
to disappoint u, the MR’s are sporting bags more than ever before, this season.
A few bag collections have been
created by designers like Fendi/Prada and Naija’s very own Adebayo oke-lawal.
These have graced fashion runways in Milan and Paris to mention a few and rocked by style
buffs like Kanye West and David Beckham (recently crowned one of the sexiest men on earth)
Anyway, there a few things to be
mindful of when picking out a hand piece for the occasion:
When going fierce, be sure to
explore purses that are off your style of clothing, so there is a loud contrast
that celebrates the purse/murse exclusively
When playing safe or coordinating
colors; especially to a formal event, pick one, two or at most three of the
colors in your ensemble for the bag or do the staple black that always works
Events suggest trendy purses like
the envelope style, cute clutch or studded/accessorized satchel (all displayed in this post) that makes a bold
statement when you walk in
Purses can also be paired with casuals
like denims, dresses (formal/informal) and native designs but be mindful of the
The size of your purse should
determine what you carry around; stuffing things into a purse disfigures and
makes it loose beauty
Your purse doesn’t necessarily
have to be the same color with your shoes but be sure to achieve a connection
except when color blocking
The solemn the event, the smaller
the purse; an official dinner does not warrant a purse as big as your PC in the
office and a friend’s 25th sure does scream a gorgeous piece
On the whole, purses/murses stand
you out as they don’t occur to the everyday/regular person.
They also make you feel a
lot more confident as you can peek into them when you want to get away from the
obvious, hold on to them when striking a pose for a picture whilst serving the purpose of keeping your special effects together, all in one place, a sign of someone who’s got style.
Have a good weekend lovelies!
