TREND: Purse Perfection

Girls don't go anywhere without their bags so as far as accessories go, this one may be the most important. We mustn't underestimate the power of a smashing purse, ladies. This week's Fashionista didn't, and she's got a great look to show for it.

Her quilted leather box bag in bright purple is the perfect accessory to amp up her otherwise casual sweatshirt, leggings, and sneaker ensemble. She plays off the extremes of the structured shape of the box and her slouchy sweatshirt for a look of effortless cool. The luxurious purse (emphasized by the chain-link strap) contrasts her comfortable loungewear producing a look of tastefully balanced glamour and ease.

Make like our Fashionista and don't let your purse just hang there – make it work for you! Even if you're feeling lazy – or if it happens to be laundry day! – you can jazz up your plain leggings and t-shirt with a bold statement bag. If you're in sweats or a soft cardigan which makes for a weaker silhouette, try a little contrast with a box purse or clutch. If you're wearing neutrals, throw a bag in a bold color or eye-catching material (feathers, beads, wicker – the possibilities are endless) over your shoulder and you're set.
