The right bag is essential for finishing off an outfit. If you want to look your best, it is well worth keeping up with the latest handbag trends. I always do and thought that it was high time I started sharing examples of some of the most interesting one with you.
This year, there are some fantastic bags available. I promise you it does not matter what your tastes and needs are you are going to be able to find what you need.
The bum bag is back in vogue
Perhaps the biggest surprise is that the belt bag is back. This spring/summer they have been all over the catwalks and are not starting to appear in the shops. Even if you do not think you like them, it is worth taking a look at this particular style of bag. They are far more versatile than you think. You can do far more than just wear them around your waist especially if you buy a multi-strap version. The type that features a cross-body strap and a belt look especially stylish and are super secure.
Every year brings a new and interesting color trend, and 2018 is no exception. This time around it is chocolate brown. If you are looking for a practical yet sophisticated handbag, this color is for you.
But, I appreciate that not all of you like darker colors. If that is the case, do not worry because the other main trend is for nude colored handbags. They are a particularly good option if you can only buy one new bag this year because they go with virtually any shade or tone.
Chains and top handles
This year, top handles are widely available. They are surprisingly comfortable bags to use, but the fact you cannot wear them across the shoulders could be an issue for some women. But, that potential issue is easily solved if you buy one that has a strap built in. Chain straps are strong and, of course, they look really attractive and because they are relatively thin they will not spoil the overall look of a top handle bag. So, they are a particularly good option.
If you want a dainty bag for a night out or to use at the weekend a drawstring one could be the perfect answer. It has been a while since we last saw this style of handbag, so if you see one you like make the most of the chance and buy it. Perhaps the only drawback with this style of bag is that they are not particularly secure.
How to make owning a designer bag affordable
All of the above bag styles are going to be easily available online and on the High Street in affordable formats. So, everyone will be able to enjoy owning them.
Fortunately, you do not necessarily have to buy a designer bag to look your best. But, if you want to, you can, especially if you look after it carefully and do not mind selling it on later. There is a big market for second-hand designer handbags. Provided you buy wisely you can sell it and make quite a bit of money. You just need to click here to find out more about how to do this.
Wife, mother, grandma, blogger, all wrapped into one person, although it does not define her these are roles that are important to her. From empty nesters to living with our oldest and 2 grandchildren while our house is rebuilt after a house fire in 10/2018 my life is something new each day.
