Summer bags and accessories

(Photo by Artem Beliaikin, from Pexel) Summer bags … how much we love you! The passion for bags still goes on in Summer too. The joy for the Summer brings us good vibes and if we had some kind of budget available we would always be looking for the last bag. And what about accessories? They are never enough, especially at the age of 40, when we are driven more towards simpler clothes and classic colours, thus we need to look for those accessories that are a bit special, able to give personality to our outfits.

Follow the advice by Yourstyleover40 to find the Summer bags and accessories of your dreams or reuse what you already have, in any case to understand how to create winning combinations.

Do you remember a special item you bought that attracted you so much? Have you ever wondered why? They are often objects that accompany us for many years. A watch with a nice strap, a designer belt, a shoulder bag that we like to wear both to go to the supermarket and to listen to a classical music concert. Often they are more expensive items, but just for the fact that they enhance each of our outfits, it is worth saving for their purchase.

On the dedicated page of the blog, I have identified some second-hand fashion accessories that are among my favourites. What are you waiting for to read the post?

The evening bag! What a special Summer bag! And also elegant bag! A small jewel, a precious accessory that changes the outfit. This is the right definition. I hope none of you have thought that the topic about bags was concluded with the post I published last week, dedicated to the day bag! Indeed, as the sun goes down, bags too change and become smaller and sparkling. They still remain important and indispensable to create unique and special outfits. In addition, elegant bags for ceremonies too belong to this category, so, if in this wonderful Spring’s month, between a wedding ceremony and your daughter’s First Holy Communion you do not know yet which bag you should go for, well, keep on reading my post at the dedicated page, the one that speaks about gorgeous evening bags.

How to choose the perfect day bag

How to choose the day bag? Well, it must be capacious because women put inside it a lot of things, even those that are not needed. So go for the maxi size if you are tall, but if you are like the majority of Italian beauties, you’d better choose a medium-sized bag. That’s because the bag too must be proportionate to the body shape. Try to imagine a giraffe woman with a small bag … Unbearable! Another detail not to be overlooked concerns the way how you carry the day bag. Do you remember when I told you that edges and details should never coincide with the largest part of your body? Well, this piece of advice also applies to the bag!

It was perfect for my clothes, it had the same colours and I completed the outfit with my beautiful blue and gold sandals.
