Any woman of culture understands the importance that the correct handbag brings to her overall look. A handbag must be stylish, seasonal and age appropriate. The wrong handbag will give her a less than polished look. A quality handbag adds the look of sophistication and class to the wearer.
While there are classic handbags that are made to be worn for decades and they certainly are a good investment; there are times when they simply do not work with the outfit. Traditionally, darker colors are normally for the cooler months while light colors blend well with light colored clothing of spring and summer.
The handbags of the spring, 2016 season will be very colorful. They will add a splash of color to any outfit while presenting the look of an accessory as the size will be very small. The spring collections will feature long straps to be worn as cross-overs or over the shoulders and rest comfortably on the hip.
Women have long faced the dilemma of buying a handbag that is new for the season, or staying with traditional bags of quality and color. This year will be no different. With a little planning, a woman can have the current style and adapt it to future trends.
While Coach, Michael Kors, Kate Spade and other big names in the handbag industry will surely produce the bag that is new for the season, one must be careful to buy handbags that will remain fashionable for years to come. Many handbag lovers will take advantage of the small and bright handbag of the spring. Though handbags do go out of fashion, they often resurface. As long as the handbag is of quality material which will remain vibrant and in good condition, it is worth the investment.
The second option for handbag lovers is to purchase a handbag that is produced by a less expensive designer. With less financial commitment, the customer can afford to use the bag for a couple of years and then replace it with a current model in the future.
There are classic handbags that never retire; those handbags are always a good choice. They are handbags made of quality leather in basic colors such as beige, black, brown, white, blue and red. The summer large tote never goes out of fashion.
The winter months are always good for red leather and, of course, black, navy and brown leather. A classic style in a mid-size will serve the client well for many years.
Handbag lovers know they can update the look of a traditional handbag by adding current accents produced by the manufacturer. A bold charm, key tag or scarf will bring a new look to a much-loved handbag.
