What woman doesn’t want to achieve a total look that suits them, no matter the occasion? Even though they may have various looks for different activities, the look they are after matters and that means paying attention to every last detail from jewelry to accessories. Even their stockings matter! Here are some tips for the fashion-conscious woman seeking ways to complement their style with the totes they carry.
1. Bags for Formal Affairs
There are times when the oversized totes trending today aren’t appropriate for the occasion. For example, you are going to a formal event at a luxury banquet room. You wouldn’t want to carry a hobo bag. It just doesn’t fit! This would be a time to look at the over-the-shoulder Saint Laurent bags found on fashion sites like SSENSE. You can look at one of Saint Laurent’s handbags such as the small Black Velvet Toy LouLou Bag. Imagine how black velvet would complement a formal evening dress. Also, sometimes the designer is just as, if not more, important than the style. You can never go wrong with a Saint Laurent bag at a formal affair.
2. On Casual Day Bags
Here, you can go almost in any direction you choose. Some women adore those oversized bags mentioned above while others simply want a small clutch as opposed to a tote. It is imperative to consider how much space you will need. Some women travel lightly while others use their totes for everything from carrying work from the office to a day out at the mall. Just bear in mind that true style begins with the designer, so it is important to remember that a name is everything. You may be going for a casual look, but that tote from Wal-Mart will never compare to a Saint Laurent Black Large Quilted Tote. There’s no comparison! Carry a designer bag and you go in style, even to the beach!
3. Only Carry What You Can Manage
Then there are those women who truly need an oversized tote but simply can’t manage to carry it with style. It ‘feels’ awkward to them and it shows. Perhaps an over-the-shoulder tote would work better than a handheld tote. Oversized totes do come in both styles, so only carry what you can manage comfortably. Badly managing a designer bag is just as deadly to style as wearing a discount store bag. You want to give the impression of being comfortable with designer brands, so give care to how you manage what you wear and what you carry.
Always remember that people really do judge by appearance and a huge part of that is how you complement your look with the right kind of bags and accessories. You want to give the appearance of being in your second skin, as it were, so pay careful attention to the occasion and what you can comfortably manage. Dress in designer brands if impressions matter and always accessorize according to the outfit and occasion. Accomplish that and you will have that total look you are after.
