Animal prints are in style. Coordinate up to three different colors in your print with the rest of your outfit. Wear a splash of jaguar or leopard with tones of black, brown, gray, white or gold. Your favorite zebra print jacket will blend nicely with a solid black, solid white or two-tone handbag. Some of the new fashion styles in clothing feature animal prints in unusual colors such as fuchsia or blue as part of the design. Accessorize these vogue prints with a matching fuchsia or blue purse to make the colors pop.
Match your metals. Wear the same tones in hardware on beautiful high fashion handbags, belt buckles, earrings, boot studs and other accents. One of the latest hardware trends is toward metals with muted tones. Stainless steel and polished silver straps and buckles are still in style, but brushed bronze and dark copper accessories are showing up as elegant alternatives.
Bold florals on black backgrounds are trending for fall. Pair your favorite black handbag with a floral-centric outfit for a luncheon, business meeting or evening gathering. Enamel-coated calfskin leather and Italian synthetic leather are solid choices for subtle accents that seamlessly tie together your ensemble. Choose leather handbags in coordinating colors of deep purple lizard skin, red crocodile and playful magenta for a bolder look.
Don’t be bashful. Rock the new season with winter white. It goes with almost anything, and it’s perfectly fashionable after Labor Day. Feature a two-tone handbag with a winter white skirt suit or an oversize topcoat for chilly weather.
Some trends from last fall are still in vogue, and they carry a slightly different twist. For example, the turtleneck has made a resurgence. Wear one in a layered look and coordinate its color with your handbag. Flannel and leather are still trademarks of the grunge and street looks. Long lengths in sleeves and skirts highlight this seasonal update. Wear a basic black leather handbag with a long shoulder strap or a discreet clutch to finish off the mood.
Coordinate popular colors with comfortable accessories as you sport the new fashions. It’s a great way to let your sense of style show through.
