So much is trendy about the look above. The 90’s dress, for one. If you haven’t seen Iggy Azalea’s 90’s throwback video for “Fancy”, put it on and click repeat. The infectiously catchy pop song is a recreation of all our favorite scenes and looks from the fab movie Clueless. The dress above may have been a little less Cher and a little more Tai, but we love it. It’s looks, cute, quirky and super comfortable – way more than tight-fitted and prone-to-overheating skinny jeans. The pop culture and comic book inspired accessories are a way style the look so it looks up to date. The white Haylee Mini Leather bag is just the best way to keep it it chic without letting it get too goth, Daria-style.
A big trend for this summer is retro bathing suits. Sure, the smaller you get the more heads you’ll turn, a la Kate Upton, but if you want to be more than hot and super chic a la the pages of Vogue instead, check out the gorgeous one pieces designers have been turning out for this pool season. Even tank dresses aren’t basic anymore – you find those which look like works of intricately beaded art. And when your outfit is this stunning, a straw beach bag just won’t do. You’ll be needing a stylish leather bag to hold your sunscreen and summer reading. Check out the Goldie Medium Leather bag in black – it’s the kind of bag that will last through many seasons of wear and tear as well as outlast all kinds of trends.
Sometimes a girl’s just in the mood for a feminine and classic look. Throw together daisies, a classic flap bag, a big floppy hat and a soft scent and you’ve got the very look. There’s a time for edgy and there’s a time for soft, muted colors and pretty jewelry. Luckily, the Adele Flap Bag can swing both ways. Whether you want to go for the peppy, pretty girl look during the day or the sultry dancer at night, this bag has got you covered. No matter what the occasion or dress code, the Adele flap bag manages to complete any look.
When you’re wearing a loud, printed dress or bikini top like the ones above, don’t worry about toning down your accessories. Just because there’s a ton of color in your outfit doesn’t mean your bag has to be black or white. It’s a good idea to pick your favorite color from the outfit and plan your shoes or bag choice with that in mind. In this case, yellow looks fab and completes the look. The Julia Large Multicolor leather bag is great for shopping, long walks or even trips to the pool or beach.
Every girl dreams of travelling the world, but some of us are lucky enough to do so this summer. That means a little bit of freaking out over what to pack, how to travel light, what to wear which is both comfortable for walking ad sightseeing but still chic enough to not draw side-eye from the well-dressed locals.
For comfort, forget your heels behind. Go for flats that won’t kill the arches of your feet even if you go to museums all day and dance all night. Take along dresses that are sexy but in a discreet way. You want the gorgeous local boys to look but you don’t want to get labeled as a clueless, flashy tourist. Even in Europe, cultures and norms can vary widely even within cities. It may be okay to be dressed to kill in a bar or club but if you’re in a church or chapel, bare sleeves may be a no-no. Take along a scarf for occasions like this just in case. And don’t forget a large, stylish bag with a long strap for comfort – like the Carrie Smooth Leather bag in Wine.
Sometimes when you’ve found a killer dress and a stunning heels, it’s only right that for your bag to look just as expensive. Unless you’re Kim Kardashian and you get paid $20,000 for every tweet, it’s better to splurge on one or two pieces and stay within budget for the rest. That’s why the Carrie Croc Effect Leather bag is so perfect. It looks expensive but it comes at a bargain. The tan color allows it to be worn with so many different looks that it’s a steal.
Sometimes, a girl just needs a little pink in her life. Kirsten Dunst made some waves this month when she commented that “sometimes a man needs to just be a man and woman just needs to be a woman.” She also remarked that feminine qualities in women have become undervalued. Regardless on your opinion on her personal beliefs or politics, there’s no denying that there’s beauty in simple, feminine accessories from time to time. Whether it’s dainty floral earrings, a beautiful makeup clutch or a statement ring, go for it! Don’t shy back from that hot pink Cindy Leather Flap Bag or from bold printed heels. Sometimes a girl just needs to relax and be a girly girl and there’s no shame in that.
