Get ready for summer with BagsDirect

Summer is fast approaching us, even if the weather is not quite showing it yet! When purchasing your new summer wardrobe, do not forget about your accessories. Jewellery, handbags and shoes, will finish off an outfit completely and should not look thrown together at the last minute. At BagsDirect, we have a huge selection of both fashion handbags, and trendy luggage sets to get you sorted for your summer, wherever you decide to spend it.

Mint greenLet’s start with which colours are totally hot right now. According to colour experts, this season is all about pastels, and in particular, pinks and mint greens. These are feminine and pretty, as well as being simple and chic. Bags in these colours will instantly complete your outfit, as well as making you look summer ready. Mint green has been popular for some time now, and is perfect for the warmer months. They are perfect colours to include in colour blocking, and will look absolutely brilliant with a plain white ensemble.

In our previous article, we went into the different terminology that is used when describing handbags, so if you are unsure of any at any point in this article, please see that article for a description of the bag. A bag that is set to be huge this summer is across-body bags. The beauty of this style of bag is the freedom and movement that it leaves you with. They are so practical, as well as looking on trend and chic. Another beauty of this design is that it is available in so many different styles, so you are guaranteed to find one that will suit you. Across the body bags can sometimes be uncomfortable for those with a bigger bust, but you shouldn’t rule them out altogether. It just means that you may need to shop around for one that you feel comfortable in. Opt for one that is smaller in size, to stop it from becoming too heavy when you are carrying it. Also, choose a bag that either has an adjustable strap or one that has a slightly longer one. This way it can sit slightly further down on your body, giving you a little more freedom.

All of the major designers have been very daring with their colours and styles of across the body bags, and it really is the perfect time for you to choose a bag that you can be sure will stand out from the crowd. At BagsDirect, we have a huge selection of across the body bags on offer and Kipling in particular have really experimented with their colours, and their Sunflower selection is perfect for this season. Its pale yellow colour will offset any outfit perfectly, and their style and design mean you can easily transform their bags from day to night.

If across the body bags are not quite to your style and you prefer something a little more traditional, you’re in luck. Classic and lady like retro bags are set to be huge this summer. They have been spotted on the catwalk of many a designer, and incredibly popular in the shops. Whilst other trends may come and go, this one is here to stay, and you can view your new purchase as more of an investment.  Classic bags come in a huge variety of styles, such as attaché cases, briefcase style or even bowler bags, but any will fit the bill nicely and complement any outfit. When looking for a classic style bag, the material is so important. Think soft, supple leather in traditional browns and blacks – the Tony Perotti collection that we offer at BagsDirect is perfect if you like classic, traditional bags. They are all made from an incredibly high quality leather and come in a variety of styles that will simply ooze sophistication and luxury when you carry them.

Fringing is being seen on everything this summer. From Kimonos, to shoes, to handbags, there is nothing that cannot be improved with a little bit of fringing. It is an extension from the boho chic style which has been incredibly popular in past seasons, as well as the 1070’s. If you want to try this trend, but are unsure whether you want to sport a bag that is completely covered in fringing, look for a bag that has oversized tassels, for example. Both rounded and square bags work brilliantly with this look, and if you do not want to spend a lot of money, it is something that you can easily recreate at home for a fraction of the price. If you have an old handbag that has seen better days, instead of throwing it away, head down to your local haberdashery store and pick up some fringing, or tassels. You can then simply glue these on using a hot glue gun, and hey presto, you have given your ageing bag a new lease of life, and transformed it into a bag that is oh so hot this summer!

small handbagIf you like to travel light, then this next trend is absolutely perfect for you. Small handbags are going to be absolutely huge this summer, whether they are clutch bags, across the body, or small shoulder bags. This style really is the ultimate accessory and if done correctly can flatter any body shape and style. Do not think that this style is just for the evening as well as this look can work brilliantly for the day time too, as long as you do not have too much that you need to carry around. They are however, perfect for when you just have to carry around your purse and your mobile phone. If you are unsure of how to introduce colour to an otherwise plain look, this can be the perfect opportunity. With a small bag, it will not take over your outfit, and your eye will not immediately be drawn to this, so go for it and be really bold with the colour. At BagsDirect, our collection of Falcon small handbags is perfect for you to try this trend.

Finally, if you are going on holiday, do not forget that your suitcases are just as important as your handbags. Travel chic suitcases mean that you can travel in style, and stand out from the crowd. Not only this, but it will make it easier for you to identify your suitcase at the other end! Our collection of Ted Baker suitcases is absolutely perfect. They feature an attractive flower design, are available in a variety of sizes and colours. The pastel design on the front is both feminine as well as being on trend, and will definitely allow you to travel in style.

This summer it is all about standing out and trying something different. If your style is usually quite plain, a bag is an excellent way of introducing a new style or colour. All of the handbags and luggage that we supply our customers are of the highest quality, and really are invest pieces. Get yourself ready for summer easily with BagsDirect.
