As the great Carrie Bradshaw once said, ” I like my money right where I can see it…hanging in my closet.” I have to say, this Brahmin purse was the best investment sitting in my closet for 2017. There are a lot of ways to make a statement with your accessories and investing in a bold bag is one of my favorite ways to do so. Here are the reasons why YOU should invest in one too-
1. A statement bag can liven up any outfit
A purse with a fun print, a bold color or is made of a luxe material can allow you to keep the rest of your look minimal while still being exciting. My red croc embossed bag made my outfit pop by bringing bold color into my outfit filled with grey, white and black hues. This type of bag is the easiest way to make your outfits make a statement without being too loud. Even if you choose to go casual, the bag will never fail to dress up your look.
2. It doesn’t need to cost you an arm and a leg
Sure, there are a lot of really fun bags out there with pretty details and unique designs. Gucci has been at the forefront of this trend with their embellished Dionysus bags. Unfortunately, not all of us can drop $2,000 on a bag just for the heck of it. Luckily, there are less expensive options that still make a bold and dramatic statement without draining our bank accounts. My Brahmin bag (seen above) retails for $265 and their line is full of beautiful bags that are guaranteed to make your look stand out. Many of the bags in that line are reasonably priced as far as crocodile bags go. Retailers like Zara and Target (Who What Wear Collection) also carry statement bags with the season’s latest “it bags.”
3. You don’t need to get too crazy…but the option is there if you want it
A statement bag does not necessarily have to be something crazy and outlandish. While my bag makes a statement, it still has the sophisticated and elegant feel to it. It has the structure of a vintage piece with a modern feel from the croc embossed leather. If you are going to invest in a piece, you want to make sure you will be getting a lot of use out of it. It’s better to purchase something that you know you will get a lot of use out of long term.
4. Your bag should match your personality
Fashion has always been used as a means of expression for many. Our style is often a reflection on our personalities and lifestyles. Now, there are bags to represent anyone. Bright colors and eye popping prints are some of the best ways that you can spread light, happiness and show off your dazzling personality. You can customize your style to fit you.
5. There’s so much to choose from that you can’t go wrong
There are more bag trends for 2017 than I’ve seen in past years. Even fanny packs have made a comeback! Here are some bag trends for you to choose from; micro mini bags, oversized bags, statement strap bags, crocodile bags, and top handle bags are just a few. You can experiment with them all and see what fits you the best.
