STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: The Bag Lady

April 17th, 2015 at 2:10am

Bags, totes, backpacks, knapsacks, duffle bags and satchels.

Whatever it is, they are coming in real hot this spring. Backpacks have always been a school essential but recently they are being worn much more outside the classroom. Also, since festivals, beach days and day parties are quickly approaching, backpacks seem to be the best way to carry around your necessities in style!

I personally have three or four stylish backpacks and love them because they are hands-free, which allows me to be able to text more, snap a few additional Polaroids or even carry another bag like this Fashionista. This Fashionista is rocking two bags and fullfills the phrase, the more the merrier. She proves that there are many different ways one can incorporate the untraditional bag into their everyday outfits. She also proves one should never doubt eBay or thrift shops because they are the hub of extremely unique pieces. The bag trend can be adopted in a crazy and cool holographic way, like this Fashionista’s purple one or even accessorized in a duffle style, like her white one!

She pairs her dope bags with a warm sweater and a jean skirt. Under the sweater she wore a nude leotard but kept the sweater on for the brisk spring morning. Oversized sweaters are always key in my book because they are cute and comfortable, and that is my motto. Plus, this pink color gives the whole outfit energy and life! Jean skirts are also coming back in style and while I’m not brave enough to wear them just yet, this Fashionista is giving me some inspiration.

In addition to the bags, this Fashionista accessorizes with some super cool white platform heels, knee-high socks, a tattoo chocker and confidence!

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “Channel your inner club kid this spring. Bust out the chokers, chunky heels and holographic prints and party like it’s 1999.”
