We women love our bags, and let’s admit it, we can never have enough of them. This season, you will have to make some additions to your collection for Spring 2015 has brought in some new, explosive trends. This is not to say that your trusty totes and flashy clutches are totally redundant now. But innovative reinvention of these classics has been quite the rage and your closet may need some sprucing up. These are what you’ll need:
These are timeless pieces which have made a recurrent appearance on fashion charts every other season. A good reason to keep these well-maintained – leather and all, aside – is because they are back in season once again! Typically, it is leather saddles in deep, rich shades that have been popular in the past. But this time, suede saddle bags are the A-listers in high couture bag fashion.
In a variety of shades, these cross-body styles are ideal to team up with casual-wear. If you don’t have one already, get one for it will not be a simple purchase but quite the investment instead. Why, you ask? Because, saddle bags just keep coming back in style!
You probably have a couple of these stashed away for those times when you need to lug a bunch of stuff around. But do you have these in quirky styles that are not the conventional, one-toned kinds?
Because that’s what this season’s totes are all about – a funky twist to the beloved staple! Metallic embellishments, digital prints, graphic patterns and whatnot has been adorning these bags on the ramp. So when you step out with yours, remember, the jazzier the tote, the better!
Circular designs have been spotted again and again on the runways of Spring 2015. While round slings, pouches and briefcase-bags were certainly aplenty, round clutches stole the limelight.
Simply put, you just cannot go wrong with a circle or oval shaped clutch. Keep that in mind when you’re dressing up for your next big bash – such fabulous accessorizing will leave that watchful party fashion police quite satisfied (and maybe slightly envious too!).
The Bucket Bag
Variously shaped bags with a pair of C-shaped handles – now who thought they would climb their way up the trends’ ladder? It seems that every major show this season has had a gamut of these bucket-bags on conspicuous display.
Unconventional and oddly convenient (it’s like carrying a light picnic basket), bucket-bags can instantly glam up your everyday office outfit. Give these a try when you’re feeling confident and experimental.
This Spring, cross-body bags have given way to striking hand-helds. Long, strappy carryalls have been replaced by tinier varieties to be held in the hand. From wrist-straps to finger-frames, anything that is neither to be strapped nor to be clutched, but held squarely in the palm of your hand comprises this style. It may seem slightly tedious, so go with hand-helds when on a short outings exclusively. But rest assured, they’ll keep your style-quotient on an all-time high!
By now you’re probably prepping for your next shopping spree. Because this season, even as the clothes have shown a revivalist trend, bags have been quite the opposite with radical modifications to older styles. Time to revamp your collection maybe? Who needs a reason though? Spring or no spring, when it comes to bags, you would do it anyway!
