Party dresses and matching clutches

By  |  1 Comment

Now that Christmas is so close, I am sure some ideas about party outfits are more than welcome. Many times what I see at parties are pretty ladies in amazing dresses or cool outfits but… with a handbag that’s totally out of place. Either it is too old and trashy, or the color doesn’t match the rest of the outfit. What many people don’t get is that a handbag should complement the outfit, and that’s why it shouldn’t be neglected.

Fashion tips for glamour outfits

  • If the dress has a strong color, I would choose a bag with a lighter color. A purple dress for example goes well with silver clutches, a red dress with a golden or beige handbag. If you dare, you can even choose a leopard print bag.
  • If the dress has a pattern, the handbag should ideally be single-coloured. Have a look at the colours of the pattern and notice which color is the least important. Use that color for your shoes or the bag. For example, if the pattern is mainly red, partly black and only a little bit green, than go for a green clutch.
  • Don’t be afraid to match contrasting colors. A black dress for example goes well with a white clutch and grey shoes (better avoid white shoes…)
