The most versatile piece a woman can own is a great purse. Yes, it’s true that a girl can never have enough shoes, but I also believe a girl can never have enough purses! Purses are constantly evolving, not only in the fashion world but also on the streets. Think back to when you got your first purse as a little girl. Whether it was your Hello Kitty or fuzzy, bedazzled purse, it was a key accessory you had to have to complete your look. It is no different now. From clutches to cross-body bags and totes to messenger bags, you are sure to find that must-have bag for any type of occasion!
A good bag can complement almost any outfit and is very practical for young Fashionistas! I love how this Fashionista paired her bag with a casual denim top, dark-wash jeans and a pink Lilly Pulitzer scarf. The one thing I adore about her bag is that it proves how a purse can work with any type of outfit, casual or dressy. The gold chains and black stitching give this purse a very unique look while also adding the option of a strap, making it suitable for everyday wear. It also is the perfect size for running errands, going to the mall with friends or even attending sporting events on campus. Brands such as MICHAEL Michael Kors and Cesca have a great selection of purses varying in prices that are well worth the splurge. But if you are looking to save money, which many college students are, Francesca’s Collections’ fall handbag collection will not disappoint you!
One way to turn this look from day to night is very simple. Removing the shoulder strap from the purse will give it a more edgy feel while resting on your forearm. Swap out those dark-wash jeans for a pair of black skinny jean while topping it off with a classic leather jacket. Since the whole outfit is very dark, use that pop of color on your shoes or rock that to-die-for red lip!
Whether you are going to class or having a night out on the town, you can find the right purse for any occasion. The versatility of clutches, cross-body, totes and messenger bags is what makes these purses such a staple item!
