Choosing a bag for Fall-Winter 2012-2013

One wouldn’t argue with the fact that fashion helps us to choose a design, color, size, and style of a bag, in fact fashion will always give you proper choice.

Let’s try to understand what was prepared by this whimsical young “lady”.

Color, model, size, and style – How to choose a proper bag?

First step – try to define color and style of those clothes you will be wearing it with.

Pay attention to any small nuances in its design, it should be in harmony with the basic concept of your style. In this case remember you are buying a bag to match your clothes, not vice versa. In fact you would not like to create a new wardrobe just because of a small handbag; – it is absolutely senseless. Nevertheless it is better to act contrary.

Choose base colors, fashion is conservative enough, such bag has more chances to get in top popular things of your wardrobe, and it will conform to recommendations of season – let it be the same color and fabrics as your suit, as in a collection of fashionable mark Jaen Paul Gaultier.

When buying a big model of bag, don’t choose something really bulky – there is nothing more ludicrous then a woman dragging excessive luggage. If only you do not have footman who will carry it all for you as on presentation of Louis Vuitton.

In general, when choosing everyday accessories for a new season, it is necessary to make a compromise with your taste, having given a tribute to fashionable tendencies and modern forms, rather than old-fashioned, only because you have got used to them.

What is in fashion right now? 

The form of bags in a season of Fall-Winter 2012/2013 has become more compact. There are small and average size handbags-envelopes, modest size sacs, big flat clutches in fashion nowadays. In collections the precise tendency of furnish is traced by materials of the different texture repeating details of a suit: guipure, metal, fur, and gobelin tapestry. Colors of a season are neutral, for example: beige, grey, black, and brown. From the basic materials the smooth leather and snake furnish is used, less often suede.

There are also bags from bright leather, look for example at the collections of Marc Jacobs, Jil Sander, Jean Paul Gaultier, and Bottega Veneta. Only such bags will be pertinent, if your suit is absolutely neutral. Several colors in ensemble should be left till next summer. Different shades of the same color is a maximum for the season of fall-winter 2012-2013.

What with and how to wear a new bag? 

Well, first of all, as we have already defined, it is necessary to carry a bag with those things which at you have in your wardrobe. As to the sizes if you do not have indispensability in the huge bag, (and yes, it is not fashionable) choose a model of the average size. Carry a flat bag in a hand; let the handle hang down freely, as recommend by fashionable marks Phillip Lim, Jil Sander, and Jean Paul Gaultier. In a fashion now are sacs with two handles – with long and short.

I hope, my fashionable advices will make this buying a pleasant and exciting event, as well as successful, practical and fashionable purchase.
