To sweet to say “no” to
I’ve never been much of a sweet tooth but the explosion of pastel-hued handbags has me reaching for the candy jar.
Delicate, feminine and yet punchy, these pretty bags offer the most delicious antidote to a winter wardrobe. Not only that, but they also provide another dimension to a minimal look. It’s simple, if you want to give your outfit a boost, throw in a pastel handbag and wait for those compliments to roll in.
I know what you’re thinking, if you’re going to make a safe designer investment you’re going to go for a classic black bag. I won’t blame you, it’s foolproof. But you’ll be surprised by the amount of baby blue and blush pink handbags that make it to checkout.
Pastel tones are also associated with positive emotions like childhood memories or plush toys you used to have. They bring a sense of calm to the darker shades in your wardrobe, and we all can do with that as we prepare for millions of kids to go back to school on Monday.
Styling these sherbet shades is easier than you think. You can match your entire outfit to the bag, or keep the look simple and make the bag the star of the show. Pastels clash well with prints but if you’re a minimalist, why not pair your bag with an equally sweet eyeshadow.
