Spring Bag Guide
Posted on 30 August by Lakeside Joondalup
If you are in the market for a new spring bag it’s important to consider more than just seasonal trends. Whilst tan leather is strong this season, satchels are back, and woven and rope fabrications are super chic, the secret to the perfect handbag is one that suits your body shape.
If you have curves avoid round, slouchy or small bags. Look for styles with straight lines crafted in softer fabrications or leather that sits flat against your body rather.
We love: This season tan is a hot hue and looks its most luxe when supple. The Emiliana Leather Shoulder Bag from Trenery is your perfect fit.
Look for a style that isn’t too boxy or overly structured. Because you are angular, softer slouchier styles will soften your silhouette whilst moulding with ease to the shape of your body.
We Love: The hobo bag is back and the perfect style for slim bodies. Check out the Angelina Hobo from Country Road.
Select a bag that is long vertically as it will create the illusion of a longer torso. Always opt for a shorter strap that is in proportion with your shape. Avoid anything too big or oversized.
We love: We love the Ring Handle Woven Tote from Seed for its perfect proportions, neutral colouring and fab woven style.
If you are super curvy in your hips and thighs choose a structured style bag with shorter straps that hangs higher on the body.
We love: The Gemma Tote Bag from Forever New is on-trend with nude faux leather and luxe gold fittings. It is every pear’s perfect arm candy.
Thick-waisted or top-heavy
Look for a hip length bag with long handle that doesn’t hit you at the bust or mid-section. Cross body bags are particularly flattering as they provide a diagonal line across the body that creates a slimmer look across the waist.
We love: The Raya Soft Crossbody Bag from Witchery in rich latte is crafted with a practical detractable cross body strap so you can carry it on your arm or slung across your body.
