DRAWSTRING BAGS FOR FALL
A Drawstring Bag Is A Must Have Accessory For Fall!
We’re bringing it back to the old school with the look of drawstring bags that everyone seems to be wanting for fall. The bucket bag was huge back in the 70’s and it seems to be getting bigger this year. The super sleek style of this bag adds a whole lot of glamour but also a sense of casual being as well, so you can wear this out with a pair of jeans or your suit to work and really look fantastic either way.
Drawstring Bags for Fall: The Color
When it comes to fall, the color palette is all about warm colors such as mochas, deep reds and stunning camels. Of course black and navy are also a winning choice as well. When looking for the right color of your drawstring bag make sure you get something that is fitting for this time of the season but also something you can see yourself wearing everyday. While prints are fantastic for fall, you may want to keep them low-key on these bags and opt for a clutch with a bold animal print instead. Drawstring bags are purses to wear everyday with your casual duds or your work attire, so keep the color clean and wearable.
Drawstring Bags for Fall: The Size
The thing that women love about drawstring bags is that the size is virtually perfect. The shape is ideal because it is feminine and never too bulky, which helps makes the size perfect to wear along your arm at anytime of the day. The thing you need to remember is to keep these purses at a decent size. While there are some great smaller versions like this Madewell Mini Drawstring Bag that work nicely when you want to only keep your cell phone and money in them, when you are looking for a purse for everyday, you need something that will hold all that and then some.
You also have to make sure that the strap works properly for you. Some purses have very long straps, and when you are petite that may be a problem. Always make sure you can find a strap that is adjustable so you can keep the purse a little below hip level. Anything longer can be just a nuisance and look rather awkward.
Drawstring Bags for Fall: The Outfit
Now that you have a fantastic new purse you need the outfit to match its sassy personality! For a casual day around the city, wear a lightweight tunic sweater, a pair of ankle leggings and some colorful flats. Remember to tie a thin belt around the waist to give you some definition. Swing that Deena and Ozzy Tan Bucket Bag along your shoulder and you are ready for a fun filled shopping day in comfort and impeccable style.
When heading to the office, wear a pencil skirt with a blouse and cardigan. Stick with closed toe heels and a navy drawstring bag to add lots of flavor that is always work appropriate.
Drawstring bags have never looked this good, so you better get your hands on them while you can!
