Colors You Should Try

Top handle designer bags aren’t all about texture and shape. For starters, color is a major influence on our taste in not only accessories, but ultimately everything. For handbags especially, most of us tag along the basics and stick with neutrals and black. The only issue with this is the lack of trends when new seasons come around. This summer, we’re trying the KATE SPADE NEW YORK Gracie Medium Wicker Top Handle Bag and the VALENTINO GARAVANI Mini Vsling Top Handle Bag.  They’re likely two colors you have yet to try and why not explore? New styles and in this case, colors, offer us new palettes to build off of. With more options to discover and love, the easier it’ll be to pair together your looks. That’s another reason there’s a whole lot to love when it comes to these accessories!

Top Handle Shapes That Deserve A Chance

Most top handle designer bags are extremely versatile and timeless ones. The secret to leading a stylish summer is exploring outside of the box and finding something that takes your personal style to the next level. How to do that? Find a handbag with a shape or texture that speaks to you? For example, maybe you wear a lot of angular looks. The best idea for your style would be to introduce  rounder, soft handbags into the mix—like the BALENCIAGA Hourglass XS Metallic Croc-Embossed Top-Handle Bag. This won’t only add some contrast, but it’ll also help balance your look head-to-toe. Finding the right designer bags for your wardrobe isn’t hard, it’s just a matter of what works for you. Explore your style with accessories and have fun with it!
