There is never a shortage of designer, statement bags competing to become the ‘it’ purse of the season. Luckily, a select few have survived the test of time, and proved themselves to be worthy investments for any Fashionista’s future.
The ideal ‘classic bag’ should work for any season or style. Take Louis Vuitton, for example – the iconic logo of this French fashion house (founded in 1854) compliments in any silhouette or shape. The neutral colors, subtle monogram print and minimal hardware on these purses are the perfect addition to any outfit, any time of the year.
Try a casual look like this Fashionista did to let your statement bag shine. Start with a cool, basic dress: a floral, ruffled babydoll or summery maxi dress are two perfect pieces that work well with this style. Throw on a light cardigan, but keep it cropped and muted in color, as not to distract from the rest of your outfit.
Flip-flops are a seasonal staple, and I still think J. Crew makes some of the best. The ‘skinny classic’ comes in a variety of tropical colors to match any ensemble, or step up your look with the same hue in ‘skinny wedge’ instead. Dressing for evening? Finish with strappy sandals or wedges that add polish and flair.
Hint: A playful romper can also offset your favorite accessory. Throw on a jumpsuit for a more comfortable dress alternative that’s more fitted for summer fun.
