If you never had to even think about money again and could live life without restrictions or inhibitions, you’d be grinning from ear to ear right? Apparently money can’t buy everything, even if you’re a billionaire heiress. Nikki Hilton appeared quite sober as she was seen hoofing it around the shops in Beverly Hills.
Even in casual short shorts, a gray tank and a black vest, she looked the part. Even though younger sister Paris is more famous, we think Nikki’s style is more flexible and up to date. While Paris still dresses like it’s 2003, Nikki is more often seen in current trends. Take this shoulder bag, for example.
It’s slightly different from other flap bags with metal chains. The rockstar-esque studs set it apart and give it an edgy yet chic look. The no frills leather straps keep this from being a flashy, attention-grabbing bag. The luxurious leather prevents it from blending into the background, reminding passerbys that Nikki is not just another skinny girl. One that’s a little more privileged than most.
Blake Lively is well known for many things. When her career first went from obscure B list films and hit the big time in the Gossip Girl series, she suddenly became famous for her on screen outfits. And that hair! Suddenly girls who had been obsessed with straightening every strand of hair to get a perfect sheen began to think of ways to it look messy and slept in. Years later, she’s established herself not as a trendy icon but one that will eventually come to represent the late 2000s.
These series of pictures a testament to that. Most often spotted carrying a new statement bag or another, here she caries a classic flap bag. The chained bag also goes into the “iconic looks of the late 2000’s category.” These past few years, we have loved seeing chains on bags and that is a trend no one seems to be tired of yet. In fact, we’ve been spotting thicker, more rustic looking chains and metalwork on handbags on the runway.
Black is a classic color for bags because if you’re going to invest a little extra moolah for a great bag, it should be one you can wear with a wide variety of outfits, in different seasons and even years later. Trendy colors and cuts are also a must have but they do tend to look dated far more quickly. This bag on Blake is perfect for just about anyone.
