Style, Fashion and Statement – All Reasons Why Women Love Designer Handbags

Many of us have talked about the advantage of a designer bag. They are stylish; they add to the class and status of the wearer and are durable. However, luxury bags are a lot more than just these. True, they are stylish and they will always be. Yet, they are also well crafted and are a pleasure to look at.

What would you love about a designer bag?

Everyone knows that beautiful bags are one of the best things you can own. Trying to explain why designer bags are amazing is like trying to explain why chocolate tastes great. So if you have your heart set on a luxury bag but your future bank balance scares you. Here are five reasons you absolutely cannot do without at least one designer bag in your closet:

1. Fashionable

Who doesn’t like something fashionable? Owning something that is fashionable helps you feel good as well. Nothing speaks ‘great fashion sense’ like a stylish bag. Handbags are the forerunners of trends and are made by the people who, quite literally, create fashion. A designer bag tells the world about your fine fashion taste.

2. Accessory

Fashion handbags are very useful. In fact, each kind of bag fulfils a unique purpose. Depending on where you are going and what you will need throughout the day, there is a stylish bag made to fulfil your every need.

4. Grabs attention

Nothing turns heads like designer bags. A designer bag gives you the “in the know” status and brands you classy. It implies that you have a good dressing sense too, which is something all women want.

5. Best designer buy for the value

Think of most other designer purchases such as dresses or shoes. These are buys that are not worn too many times. Once they are worn and noticed by people, it is unforgivable for a fashionista to repeat them too many times. But this is the very purpose of a classic designer bag – thus providing real value for the money.

Of course, there are many of other reasons you might want a luxury handbag. When you use your first bag it will tell your friends and fellow travellers of your fine taste in eloquent accessories.

How Women Can Dress in Urban Style Fashion

When women dress in urban clothing, it can be a reflection of their will to put up a fight for higher standards of living and success. Urban fashion is usually defined as relaxed, functional, and comfortable. If you’re a woman on-the-go, this is a good choice of fashion for you. Just because it’s described as comfortable doesn’t mean that it’s not going to make you look good, because that’s not true. You can look great in urban wear and your accessories will make the most of your urban look. If want to fit in the big city, then you need to urbanize your wear.

In order to really embrace the fashion of urban wear, you need to understand clearly what makes a certain look urban.

*Your look needs to be functional
*Your look needs to be a little on the ethnic side.
*Your look needs to be bold and tell a little something about who you really are.
*Your look needs to be edgy.

There are two different types of urban clothing for women to wear. There is weekend wear and business clothing. Weekend wear can be anything from evening gowns to skinny jeans with furry boots and a nice comfy sweater. Business wear can be clothing like maxi-dresses, power suits and vintage ensembles.

When wearing urban wear, you shouldn’t be afraid to mix and match elements that typically would not go together. Keep in mind that bold is beautiful, the bolder you make a combination, the better it’ll be.

The basics of urban wear are:
*Jewelry that catches the crowd
*Skinny Jeans
*Wool coats
*Ankle or knee length boots
*Thin skirts
*Corduroy Blazers
*Bold belts
*Flats
*Black cardigans

With urban wear you can easily transform your mundane business suit into something to wear to a club in just a few easy steps. Add a headband and some makeup that will make you sparkle. Then trade in your pumps for some boots and you have yourself a great outfit to wear to the club. You don’t have to be half naked in order to look good for a night out on the town. You want to show that you are smart, sensible and bold. You don’t need to be dressed in skimpy lace and short shorts to get attention.

Like I mentioned earlier, accessories are very important to urban fashion. The best jewelry to wear are made with precious stones, many different metals and crystals and pearls. Wearing urban jewelry isn’t wearing all of your grandmothers old jewery. When you wear urban jewelry you should be trying to send a message saying that you are a bold woman. Large jewel encrusted necklaces and pendants to gold hoop earrings are the bold urban fashion statements to make everyone look your way.

Military-Style Fashion for Fall

Military-feminine. If you can get your hands on it, please do! Plan to wear your boots and look Eastern bloc mysterious undercover agent unbelievable. Blue-grey and steely colors form smart top-coats with faux fur trim. Narrow army coats sport distinct buttons and epaulettes. Soften your hard-as-nails look with a hint of lace cami that peeks out from underneath the lapel of your trench, or a surprisingly gorgeous fabric pencil line, to the knee or just above, slits at the side or back.

Buttons are key, large and small, as they embellish the rich look and cut of these fashions.

Now, just a few more tips to look military chic!

1. Wear your military style jacket or coat overtop your favorite jeans and with a lightweight or sexy top underneath. You can keep your clothes simpler due to heavy embroiders, embellishments, epaulettes, ornaments and the like (especially so if you’re lucky enough to find a really fabulous overcoat or jacket.)

2. Remember, the look you’re going for is not soldier camo (which to some onlookers may be in poor taste – given the times.) You are aiming for a classic officer class look, cooler and Russian romantic. Fur trims are keys, shiny brass anything, dressings up on the shoulders, and don’t forget signature long shiny leather boot-wear.

3. Keep the overall feel of the outfit hard (with a bit of mystery of course!) How? Lots of black, very fitted, waist-accentuating and buttoned-up chic. If the jacket is long, opt for a belt if possible.

4. Black, more black, and if not black, somber and foreboding color is key.

7. Yes, you can wear your flats with a military-style jacket.

8. Is your military style jacket or coat missing the bling? Not to worry! Get creative and populate those empty spots and lapels with your own accessories. If your fashion find doesn’t have pins, big buttons and the like, try out vintage items, medals, fashion jewelry, and other second-hand items. Get creative, the items don’t have to be military-ish. You can also check out your local sewing or craft-goods store to dress up your find with your own custom design.

9. Accessorize to impress. Choose a belt or bag with dictinctive glamour. In tasteful amount, brass studs, buckles, belts. Keep it spy-rific.
