There are bags that catch your eye from a distance and hearts from up close. Wonder what they are? Check out the assortment of stand-out bags that can do just that below.
Upon trawling fashion blogs and Lookbook, the classic bags in neutral color and shape do come up aplenty. In fact, they are a must-have so that the fashionista can focus on other aspects of her wardrobe to coordinate and fuss over. The bags and shoes shall remain in the background, quietly donned at the very last moment.
Today, the focus shall fall onto these so-called accessories to an outfit. Instead of being the quiet addition to the wardrobe, we look to statement bags. Like shoes, they must complement the outfit well as they can and do make or break a look.
For me, a statement bag plays upon these three elements: color, shape (texture) or pattern. To have a bag in the loudest of color, unusual structure or shape and the inclusion of some fun promise for the ultimate package of a statement bag. But of course, a little compromise will do in that to have any of the three elements present in a bag is sufficient enough depending on your style preference.
Let us scour the list of statement bags below and ways to wear them so that they get to shine instead:
♥ highrack tote bag | Marrí Louren
A graphic tote for the edgy crowd. The ultimate conversation-starter.
♥ neon clutch | Andreea Design
Dressers of neutral outfits can indulge in pops of neon via bags and/or shoes.
♥ fringe bag | Tia Newton
A bag in a neutral color minus fringe = a garden-variety classic bag. Embellished with fringe, consider it transformed, an accessory worthy of a second look.
Printed Wild Feline
♥ leopard bag | Reneta Kanevska
On even the loudest of little red dress, a leopard print bag highlights the highlight. The bag is not only just a winner in print, but in shape as well.
♥ retro scalloped satchel | Polly Alba
A plain brown bag is a classic and can remain the neutral accessory that it is. A brown bag with scallop edge and buckle accents? Now that is a classic retro statement-maker.
♥ studded bag | Sabrina Kwan
Black bags plus many, many studs are forever my favorite. Something about the shine and the almost-lethal protrusions speak to the rebel within. The perfect option for those not too comfortable with loud print and color.
The Invisible Bag
♥ see-through clutch | Asena Saribatur
A touch of neon and plenty of transparency in a bag can be pretty out there. All of your things are literally paraded out for show, kind of like how the contemporary fashionista is on her social media.
