But a lot of people ask: how can I decide when to wear a bag, or a clutch, or a box bag, or a satchel?
First of all, with a little help from Topshop.com, let's see what we're talking about:
So now let's talk about when and why!
- satchel: right now is the perfect casual and cool bag, the one you use to give a personal touch to an everyday outfit, for example a simple jeans+tee+lace-up shoes outfit, because of its shape, originally coming from a bag that was employed by office worker, or teachers.
- box bag: is perfect for outfits that are elegant but special, for example some vintage dresses or some balloon skirts, because those bags are kinda vintage and special themselves, so they have to be added to an outfit that can keep their meanings on.
- clutches: similar to box bag for the way you can use them and for their dimensions, but they are more versatile and, actually, can be stiled with a casual-smart outfit, but you have to be very careful: you can do this if you're wearing some elegant details in it, for example a blazer on a legging, with heels (Kate Lanphear style!). Perfect for an evening party, with a cocktail dress.
- tote bag: is the empowered, re-visited version of a shopping bag, for each hour of the day. It comes in a milion of prints, patterns and shapes. It's very useful and practical. It's the easier to combine. It really goes perfectly with everything, from a tee to a dress. You can't go wrong with that!
So... what's your favourite kind of bag?
