Finding the Perfect Handbag: Does it Have to Match Your Outfit?

A handbag is more than just a fashion accessory; it's an essential part of our daily lives. It's where we carry our phones, wallets, keys, and other essentials. So, it's important to choose a handbag that's both stylish and functional.

Function vs. Style

In the past, it was considered a fashion faux pas to "not" match your handbag to your outfit. However, in recent years, there's been a shift towards more personal and expressive style. Mixing and matching colors, patterns, and textures is now considered a fashion-forward way to show off your unique sense of style.

Tips for Mixing and Matching

If you're new to the world of mismatched handbags, here are a few tips to help you get started:

  • Embrace pattern: A patterned handbag can add a touch of personality to a plain outfit. Just be sure to choose a pattern that complements the colors and textures of your outfit. Not ready to go bold? The displayed outfit at right shows how to mix and match patterns keeping it simple, yet stylish. Start with the basics like a white textured sweater, tan suede skirt and black suede booties. We've added out 'ChocoLatte' windowpane plaid crossbody vegan leather crossbody bag and matching sunglasses and eyeglass case. Plus, we added our 'Spiced Rum' color zip around wallet and a 'Boho Palms' print credt card holder.

  • Contrast block colors: If you're feeling confident, try pairing a handbag with a color that's completely opposite of the color of your outfit. This can create a bold and eye-catching look like our 'Vivid Magenta' color crossbody bag paired with a black outfit.

  • Consider the occasion: The more formal the occasion, the more conservative your handbag choice should be. For casual outings, you can experiment with more playful and mismatched styles.

No Hard and Fast Rules

Ultimately, the decision of whether or not to match your handbag to your outfit is up to you. There are no hard and fast rules anymore. The most important thing is to choose a handbag that makes you feel confident and stylish.

So, go ahead and experiment with different handbag styles and colors. Don't be afraid to express your personal style!
