The best thing about blogging is getting to meet so many new people - like fashion blogger Suzy Walsh. Check out her amazing insight on this season's handbag trends below!
Most women have a fetish for shoes, handbags and accessories. No matter how many you own, you still want to shop more. Every season, designers come up with new collections, and besides the clothing and outfits, there are handbags that demand instant attention. Since this blog is about traveling, I thought of doing a post on handbags, which are easily one of the main essentials for ladies on the move. Here are the best picks from fall 2017 collections that you need to try.
Straps and more straps: Instead of the main handbag, many designers chose to work with heavy and funky straps. Mulberry had sling bags that had scarves wrapped on the straps, while Alexander Wang worked with amazing details for a hobo bag. There were others like Fendi, who worked with fur. The idea is to shift attention, and with a quirky and stylish strap, this job is done for sure. You can pair these handbags with trench coats, dresses and jumpsuits with ease.
Small and smaller: Well, micro mini handbags seem to be the flavour of the season. Coach, Mulberry, Tory Burch, and Fendi were some of the brands that worked with this trend in different ways. Probably not a practical choice, especially if like to carry the world in your handbag, but when it comes to fashion, you hardly need a reason anyway! These handbags can be perfect for those one-day outings, when you are traveling with the minimal essentials.
Larger than ever: If you are a traveller or someone who likes to pack everything in one bag, this is the trend for you. Basically, designers like Michael Kors, Altuzarra, and Gucci, worked with large bags that almost resembled a regular gym or duffle bag. The shapes were different, but the idea was quite obvious – big enough for everything, including your small laptop, makeup essentials, phone and tablet. These are ideal for long vacations, and for the fall, you can carry them anywhere, with a scarf/shawl to keep you warm.
Crocodile prints: We don’t support animal based fashion, and you shouldn’t either. The crocodile print, however, remains a big influence. The good thing is you can find all kinds of faux products, which almost feel and look same as real. Also, there are so many different styles in the same texture that you would be spoilt for choices. You can check the collections of Jason Wu, Fendi, Gucci and Mulberry to find a few ideas. The good thing is you can find a lot of cheaper options on online stores. You can get a clutch or a sling bag – as you like it - and don’t worry, this is a classic, so it will never get out of fashion.
