In order to create a memorable and stylish look, sometimes it is not absolutely necessary to buy many new clothes… may be sufficient only a new bag. So the method of transformation into a refined lady is one of the most simple and affordable.

The biggest difficulty for many of us is the correct choice of the bag that will match the shoes. You still think the bag and shoes should really have the same shade and the same texture? Wrong! This understanding is history. Today, designers tell us to give evidence to more courage and imagination when choosing a bag. Yet, a rationale clean and refined taste does not hurt.

Bag and shoes

Practical recommendations

If you really need a set of similar bag and shoes, then nobody will forbid anything. However, the diversity of options is so great that there is no need to analyze them all. It is enough to remember some basic rules:

– You may and should combine different textures. Agree that matching a pair of patent leather shoes with a similar bag minimum creates a feeling of boredom. Try instead to match a pair of patent leather boots with a suede bag. You will immediately see how your look becomes more interesting. Or vice versa, suede boots plus a patent leather bag. In a word, put your fantasy in motion!

– You may and should combine prints with monochrome fabrics. If you have a bag with a picture of a beautiful flower that you carry with pleasure, its charm can disappear instantly if you will match it with a pair of shoes with the same print. The beauty of such bags would be ideal accentuated if you add a pair of red but monochromatic shoes. At the same time, a pair of dainty shoes with flowers or polka dots will look perfect if matched with an appealing monochrome bag. Such bright duo will look very harmonious.

– Brightness and matte. Choose shoes and purse in the same shade, but made of materials with different textures. For example, match matte shoes and a bag with metallic shade surface. Just imagine how stylish the following combination looks: match beige or brown shoes with a bag with bronze or golden glitter. A pair of white shoes matches well with a gold handbag, and so on.
