Handbags – The Ultimate Accessory – A handbag can jazz up a rather plain outfit or lurk inconspicuously in the background when you simply do not want it to distract from the main attraction – your outfit. At base level, people have carried handbags simply for their functionality – they are a convenient to cart around all the necessities that you will require throughout the day. But handbags add flair and style to any well put together person and their ability to complete your outfit should never be overlooked.
Choose the wrong handbag and people will gawk and stare at your fashion faux pax; choose the right handbag and people will notice you for an entirely different reason. And since handbags can be had at most any price range, from a few dollars to a few thousand dollars, there is no reason to exclude this ultimate accessory from your wardrobe.
Handbags are truly the ‘it’ accessory for any woman wishing to extend the visual impact of her look. And although you will most likely see women utilizing this accessory, on occasion, men have donned and will don handbags, choosing to call them ‘man bags’ rather than handbags. A great handbag can triple the effect of an outfit. In essence, your handbag can mean the difference between a great outfit and a truly stunning one. People may not be able to exactly ‘put their finger on’ why your outfit stands out, but now, at least you know the secret.
There are literally thousands of styles and colors of handbags to choose from, so you will never have problem finding just the right handbag to accessorize any outfit. Your choice of handbag speaks to your character and choosing just the right one can say a million different things about you. Beautifully done accessorizing will always get you noticed.
One thing to remember when choosing a handbag is that accessorizing should be done in moderation. Pay attention to how you pair your accessories – you do not want to wear large earrings paired with an oversized bracelet and a chunky necklace. It is just a bit much – rather like an overdressed, brightly lit Christmas tree. Yes, people will notice you but for reasons other than the ones you have in mind. Never go overboard with the accessories – what you are aiming for is a simple, properly accessorized look.
This same advice hold true when you are selecting a handbag to complete your outfit. If you are wearing a delicate dress for an elegant occasion, you do not want to overwhelm that pricey dress with a gaudy, oversized handbag. And your sparkly, studded handbag may not be the best choice for a day at the office (unless you work in fashion) – save the sparkles for nighttime wear.
A good rule of thumb to remember when choosing a handbag as an accessory is that oversized works great for daytime wear, while you may want to choose a smaller handbag for nights out. If you are wearing a simple outfit, by all means, let your handbag stand out. When it is your outfit that you want to stand out, choose a handbag that complements and blends in.
Keeping these simple things in mind will help you to always choose the best handbag to complete your look. Proper choice of a handbag makes it truly the ultimate accessory for any outfit.
