ACCESSORIES REPORT: Must-Have Spring Accessory

Accessories Report

With the arrival of spring, our purses are finally becoming lighter. We no longer need space for gloves, scarfs or earmuffs, which gives us the possibility of using small bags instead of those big heavy totes. Brands are bringing out unique bags, such as clutches and shoulder bags for the spring and summer seasons. Chanel uses its infamous quilted pattern and Olympia Le-Tan’s book clutch collection adds a little spunk to an ordinary wardrobe. There is a clutch for every style and personality.

This Fashionista, for example, chose a Red Valentino purse from the spring/summer 2014 collection. The small brown leather bag is perfect to put your essentials in and go out in this perfect weather. The bow in the front gives the Valentino bag a feminine delicate touch that reflects the Fashionista’s personality. The bag is perfect whether it’s to go explore the outdoors during the day or going out to dinner with friends. It’s a piece that can be taken from day to night with the right outfit.

She combined the bag with a fabulous spring outfit. A mid-length MANGO pleated skirt enhanced her silhouette and made her look thin and taller. The gray skirt played with a one-of-a-kind mint-texturized Zara blouse. It was a romantic, flirty look that played with her skin tone and showed her personality. This Fashionista is ready to take on spring without being weighed down by her bag.

Spotted: Valentino spring/summer 2014 collection has all kinds of bags. Big, small, colorful and classic — choose the one that goes with your style and enjoy it!
