Every Fashionista has that go-to purse they can use day after day, but sometimes it is fun to mix it up. Wearing a regular neutral purse with a bright color is a fun change for spring. As a huge fan of color, a purse can be an unexpected pop for any outfit.
I found this Fashionista embracing spring colors with a red bag she purchased from ALDO. She paired her bright bag with a lacy tan top and skinny jeans. The traditional shape of her bag balances the bold red to create an updated classic. This spring is all about bold colors so this is the time to try out a fun bag! Although I love how this Fashionista kept her outfit simple, a bold bag does not have to be paired with only neutral colors. A bag can add effortless contrast to every look. This Fashionista said she changes her purses frequently to match outfits and occasions.
Purses are powerful accessories because they are used so frequently, so don’t forget about that next time you buy a new bag. Any color bag would be a fun way to spice up your springtime wardrobe. I love this neon cross-body from Urban Outfitters and this Marc by Marc Jacobs tote, which are both very on-trend with the neon colors. Don’t get stuck in the habit of just using one bag every day and try a fun new change for spring.

So, I will admit there is one thing about wearing a coat in fall/winter that I do not enjoy… No one can see your fabulous outfit! We all tend to feel a little drab during the cold season with all the bundling up and layers. Since all we are ever thinking about is walking to and from class while attempting to stay warm, we tend to forget that it is still easy to look stylish and stay warm. That is why you need an accessory that will really make your outerwear pop. That’s why when I saw this week’s Fashionista I knew I had to take her picture because I fell in love with bold colors she was wearing.
I think the best way to spruce up any winter outfit is wearing bold colors that complement each other and really make you stand out. Normally, I am not a huge fan of yellow but this Fashionista’s bright yellow Kate Spade bag completely changed my mind. It’s sophisticated, chic, and adds to her preppy inspired look. It also looks amazing with her bright red coat and is the perfect statement piece.
This winter should be spent experimenting with color. Try a printed coat with navy handbag or an emerald coat with a purple handbag. The possibilities are endless so let the searching for a bold handbag begin! Do not be afraid to experiment Fashionistas and Fashionistos!
A classy striped sweater really pulls this whole look together with the help of her pearl necklace and her oxford shoes.
