What Type of Bag Goes with Every Outfit: 8 Fashion Tips

by Gila Chabat 16 Dec 2022

Our bag is an important part of your outfit. It should complement your look, not compete with it. The right bag will make you look pulled together and stylish, while the wrong bag can make you look cluttered and frumpy. Here are eight fashion tips to help you choose the right bag for every outfit.

Consider the Occasion

When it comes to finding the perfect handbag, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, consider the occasion. A bag for work will be different from a bag for a night out. For work, you'll need something professional and spacious enough like the Oliver Bag to hold your laptop, folders, and other essentials. A night out calls for something smaller and more glamorous. Second, think about your personal style. Do you prefer classic or trendy? Bold or understated? Funky or elegant? Once you know what you're looking for, it will be easier to find the perfect bag. And if you're ever in doubt, remember that black always goes with everything.

Think About your Colours

If you're looking for a bag that will go with every outfit, one of the best tips is to choose a bag in the same colour family as your clothes. That way, even if your clothes are a different colour or pattern, they will still coordinate well with your bag. For example, if you tend to wear a lot of black, navy, and grey, a black bag would be a good choice. Or, if you prefer to wear earth tones, a brown bag would be a great option. 

Of course, there are always exceptions to the rule. If you have an outfit that is already very busy or colourful, you might want to choose a bag in a solid colour so as not to overwhelm your look. And, if you are wearing something in a print or pattern, like this Elizabeth Scott 100% Linen Dress, it can be fun to play with that same print or pattern in your bag.

Choose the Right Size

While the most important factor when choosing a handbag is undoubtedly style, it is also important to make sure that the bag you choose is the right size for your body type and the occasion. For example, a large tote bag like the Mila Boho Style Leather Tote may be ideal for carrying all your everyday essentials, but it may look out of place at a more formal event. Conversely, a small clutch bag may be perfect for a night out, but it would be impractical for use as an everyday bag. As such, it is important to consider both style and function when choosing a handbag.

Go for the Classics

As any fashionista knows, having a go-to bag that can be paired with any outfit is essential. But with so many different styles and trends out there, it can be hard to know which one to choose. If you're feeling overwhelmed, take a cue from the classics and go for a timeless design that will never go out of style.

One of the most versatile bag styles is the tote. Totes come in a variety of shapes and sizes, making them perfect for everything from work to weekend getaways. And because they're so spacious, you can easily fit all your essentials - and then some. Plus, their simple design means they can be dressed up or down to suit any outfit.

Another timeless option is the crossbody bag. Crossbody bags like the Kompanero Crossbody Bag are ideal for days when you want to be hands-free - whether you're running errands or exploring a new city. And because they usually have multiple straps and compartments, they're also great for storing all your belongings securely. So next time you're looking for a new handbag, don't overthink it - just go for a classic style that will stand the test of time.

Play with Texture and Material 

When it comes to texture and material, there are endless possibilities. From smooth leather to rough hemp, there is a material and texture out there to suit any outfit. Don't be afraid to mix and match! A soft cashmere scarf looks great with a pair of distressed jeans and a leather handbag. Or, try pairing a linen blouse with a patent leather purse. The options are endless!

Have Fun with Pattern 

 A bag with a funky print or an unexpected pop of colour can add personality to any look. And when it comes to pattern, the sky's the limit. From geometric shapes to florals to abstract designs, there's a print out there for everyone. So don't be afraid to experiment and have some fun with your bag selection. After all, fashion should be fun.

Accessorise Wisely  

As any fashionista knows, the right purse can make or break an outfit. But with so many different styles and colours to choose from, it can be difficult to know which bag to pick. One helpful tip is to make sure that your purse coordinates with the rest of your accessories. This means considering not only the colour of your purse but also the pattern and material. For example, if you are wearing a dress with a busy print, it might be best to carry a solid-coloured bag. Or if you are wearing a leather jacket, you might want to carry a bag made from a similar material. By taking the time to coordinate your purse with the rest of your outfit, you can create a look that is both stylish and pulled together.

Be Confident 

Confidence is the one type of fashion that always looks good. No matter what you are wearing, how you wear it, or where you are going, confidence will always make you look your best. If you are not confident in what you are wearing, it will show. You will be uncomfortable, and your lack of confidence will be noticeable to those around you. However, when you are confident in your outfit, you will radiate positive energy and people will take notice. So next time you get dressed, remember that confidence is the best accessory you can put on.

No matter what type of bag you choose, it's important to remember that the most fashionable accessory is confidence. When you feel comfortable and secure in your outfit, you will be able to show off your bag with pride. So don't be afraid to experiment and have fun when it comes to selecting a bag for every look.
