Go by Shape
One method is to choose shapes that match. For example, the shape of the clothing items being worn can match the shape of the handbag. Slim fitting items such as skinny jeans and pencil skirts can be matched with a clutch or tote. Pleated dresses and skirts have a romantic feel, and match well with a satchel, baguette or drawstring backpack to complete the look. These types of handbags are for sale throughout the year.
Matching materials is also an option. To make it easy, the materials that the items are made from must complement each other. So if one is wearing wool, cotton and other synthetic types of fabrics they should put them with leather. Another rule is that leather handbags on sale should be matched with leather shoes, be it sandals, boots, heels or flats it doesn’t matter.
Clothing that is produced with lighter fabrics like silk, satin and rayon go well with bags that are also made with those fabrics.
A Pop of Color
Handbags on sale are a great way to add color to any outfit. If the outfit is all white or all black for example, or a white button down with black slacks or skirt then a bright red or yellow purse will make the entire outfit pop. Readily compliment any set of attire with a brightly colored purse, doctors bag or bowling back purse. It’s also fun to add matching statement earrings, bracelet, necklace or brooch to really turn heads.
To keep an outfit from looking too crazy, if it has patterned elements its best to stick with handbags on sale that are neutral and solid colors. It doesn’t matter if it’s a tiny pattern or large and colorful. Stick with a white, black or brown purse to keep it versatile. Beige, tan, grey and cream also work. There are many shades of these colors that will be fine.
Make Sure It’s Comfortable
There are always many handbags on sale, but not all will be comfortable or convenient with the chosen outfit. If it’s wintertime and the outfit includes a long, bulky jacket then a smaller bag or clutch will be perfect. Anything that is carried over the shoulder will just add to the bulk of the coat and be inconvenient.
Blousy sleeves and tops are another example for this. There’s no sense in getting a strap hung up on the blouse and being frustrated. Stick with a hand held bag and be proud of the look rather than feel frumpy.
Step Out in Style
By following these simple rule when shopping for handbags on sale, every outfit will be complemented well, and the wearer will be dressed to impress for work, school or any special event. Take the guesswork out of matching bags and outfits, pass the information along to friends and family! It’s smart to keep varying bags in each style available to go with whatever is being worn. This way, there is little frustration when getting ready.
Keeping on top of the various sales that happen throughout the year will allow the best and most impressive styles for every season. Stock up on basic colors, and a variety of clutches, satchels, messenger bags and more and never have to search for the perfect handbag for any outfit.
