Essential Accessories for Women:
Handbags! Part 1 of the fashion blog’s 4 part series on the must have accessories for all women.
Recently I went over the top 40 wardrobe essentials for women and found that aside from shoes, that list was completely lacking. In accessories!
So in order to fulfill my faithful followers I thought “I ought to throw together a list of absolutely all-important accessories.” Starting with the most important; handbags.
5 handbags minimum – You don’t have to have 5 handbags but it does help to express your style and is the second thing people see other than your jacket… and your face but we’re talking fashion here, keep up.
The reason why the nylon Prada collection is still their highest grossing collection is because it allows Prada lovers to own a piece of iconography, as well as have a light weight bag that seemingly goes well with everything. I say seemingly because yes, it will go with everything because it is black but there is usually something that will express the intention of your outfit better than the most affordable (cheapest) Prada you can get your hands on.
Handbags that do not fall under the basics category must be wardrobed to mesh with your selection of shoes, belt, and other accessories. If you only buy 5 handbags in your life (very unlikely (impossible)) then 2 must be basics (comfortable, flexible, strong, and of a color that goes with many things in your wardrobe.) The other 2 should be great day bags that match with a favorite pair of pumps or that rare croc belt you have, and should be a little less than practical (A.K.A. you should not be able to hold a laptop in it.)
The last bag is all about evening. I would suggest owning two evening clutches but since I have to fit this into 20 accessories I am narrowing this down and cutting the fat. So the one evening clutch you must own should be versatile and slim. When you go out this bag should be a subtle way to say I’m better than you while holding a thin cell phone a condom and your credit card (BF gets to hold the keys to the beemer.)
