The Power of the Purse

No outfit is complete without the perfect accessory – a bag. Whether it be clutch, tote, cross body or shoulder, a bag is what completes the outfit. When the colours of an outfit are neutral or monochromatic, a bag, whether in a pattern or a bold hue, acts as a perfect statement piece, while a neutral bag can act as an anchor for a colourful or vivacious outfit.

Bright bold hues, especially pinks, coral and cobalt blue, make the perfect statement piece, day or night, into the spring, or throughout the summer. Clutches in bright blue are perfect for pairing with a white dress or a floral romper, whether you’re attending Sunday brunch or a girl’s night out. Although my favourite colours for spring and summer are evidently blues and pinks, any bold colour, like orange or yellow, is perfect for livening up a neutral outfit or making a fashion statement on a smaller scale.


If you are someone who can appreciate bright colours but are not interested in making such a bold fashion statement, then neutral and more classic patterns are the perfect way to go! A neutral colour, like brown or tan, is the best way to finish a classy or chic outfit, especially when there is a cute detail, like a fringe tassel, a soft pattern, or a perforated design. Neutral or soft colour palettes, especially in brown or beige tones, are perfect for the autumn transition, when the leaves begin to change from bright green into ambers and reds.


 Purses, aside from being the perfect thing to carry all that a girl on the go needs, are an easy and fun way to finish off any outfit. No matter the colour, pattern or price point, you can find cute or classic bags that are both functional and fashionable to serve you well year-round.

You never need to brag when you have a nice bag.

Happy lugging xoxo.
