Styling Hacks using your Handbag

We all have those mornings where we wake up, look into a closet full of clothes we’ve worn a million times and feel stuck on what to wear. On a day like this, it’s easy to feel defeated and uninspired by your wardrobe. However, one way you can get around this is by looking to your handbag and starting there! 

If you’re striving to create a cute and casual outfit for an afternoon out, we suggest beginning simple with a base like your favorite t-shirt and jeans or a cute blouse and palazzo pants. From here, adding a bucket bag such as the Tower or Octagon, will set your outfit apart. Since bucket bags are structured and overstated, you can tie this in by wearing a pair of chunky sneakers to add some weight to the bottom of your look as well. 

For a more chic and elevated look, you can’t go wrong with monochrome! All black everything is a great go-to, so you can style a black blazer with black fitted pants and your favorite black clutch purse. One of our favorite clutches here at SUSU is the Angelica. Modern and trendy, you can’t go wrong with the black leather clutch or the black leopard clutch for a pop of pattern. If you’re looking for a little more flair, styling an all white outfit with a pop of red, like our Kiss bag, is a fun and flirty way to take on the day. For a finishing touch, add a pair of red shoes to color coordinate! 

Our final tip is to match the rest of your accessories to your bag. If you’re carrying a purse with gold hardware, like our Atlanta, gold hoop earrings will help bring your look together. If you’re carrying a solid color handbag, like our Josie, you can match it to hair clips or a scarf in the same tone. 

Next time you are in a fashion rut, start simple! Consider your handbag and go from there.
