Posted by Vicky Layton on Jan 21st 2019

There’s nothing better than finally getting your hands on that handbag you’ve been admiring for
months. Adding your new favorite essential accessory to your wardrobe opens up the floor for a
range of wonderful outfit combinations, but which are best to show off your latest purchase? Here’s
a look at our top 5 outfit ideas for you to showcase your new handbag:   

1. Animal Print

Animal print has emerged as a must-have trend in 2019, so it makes sense to team it with your new handbag. If you’re not a fan of zebra print blouses and leopard print coats, then try out the trend in a more subtle way. Team a snake skin clutch with a casual daytime look for the ultimate nod to the latest fashion trend. Not only does this incorporate this season’s hottest trend, but it also puts your new handbag center-stage.

remaining effortlessly stylish. To show off your latest find, pair it well with your smart office attire. A sleek, black leather bag works well with a skirt suit, coordinating the outfit to create a well-
presented look.

You may have completely transformed your wardrobe just in time for your holiday, the perfect
excuse to show off your new contemporary pieces. Your outfit choices on holiday tend to be little
more experimental and colorful, mostly because you’re not afraid to hold back when the sun
comes out. Team your patterned handbag with a flowing skirt, heels and a simple vest top for the
ideal beach babe ensemble.
