Which accessories we wear to complete our outfit – often it’s the same difference. Even if necklaces, bracelets and scarves are pretty to look at, we could do without them, really. With glasses and handbags, it’s a different thing though. Because prescription glasses we just really need to be able to see clearly, and handbags to stow away our glasses cases, lipsticks, etc.
So, to make sure that the accessory in our hand or on our shoulder goes with what we wear on the back of our nose, we collected combinations that superbly match and so make for a harmonious all-over look.
XXL bags – Something to properly hold on to
Even if it’s not the size that matters, as we all know, oversized bags are very popular. They have the advantage that they can be seen from far away and attract attention, but they also have an enormous volume, which, looking at the current developments in London, will probably soon be considered valuable living space. A really big whopper is the Louis Vuitton Neverfull.
Those who would like to play in the same league with their matching choice of glasses are going to make their find at Versace’s. Although the Versace glasses VE 1244 are labelled XL, they have a size of their own, really. Colour-wise they match the Louis bag, but on top of this they are also a timeless classic with their Havana brown.
Small, but oh my!
So if it’s not the size that matters, what is it, then? Exactly, the t…rends. Well, we don’t want to turn anyone into a tag-along copycat. But between a trendsetter and a hype beast there’s a lot of wiggle room! And here’s the one trend you just really don’t want to miss out on: micro bags.
Micro blading, micro sim card, Microsoft. Until now, everything got better with the “micro” prefix. So why not also the popular bags? They definitely look cute. And we certainly won’t suffer from posture problems when carrying the mini bags around for hours. However, there is just a small disadvantage to them: unnecessary equipment such as predetermined breaking point creators for eggs, or knick-knacks like puking Tamagotchi should better stay at home. We compress the interior and focus on the exterior.
Chanel, for example, features the little red one in their product range. But because this mini handbag tends to get overlooked due to its size, the glasses can be a bit more conspicuous in this case. For the ladies who like to highlight their femininity, we recommend cat eye glasses with delicate metal frames. With their red details, these Miu Miu glasses from the core collection are a wonderful match to go with the outfit above.
Handbags to get saddled
The saddle bag has been in the bag business for a while now, although we can observe a gradual move from the hands towards the waist. Back in the day it was thrown onto the horse’s back for the ride downtown, nowadays fashion conscious women throw it on their own hips for the shopping spree, just like a fanny pack. Yee-haw! We’re all for Dior.
To spur you on stylistically and to encourage you to try something wild, we challenge you to put on the L.G.R Reunion. Should you need an outfit to go on a duel just after sunrise, you should also seriously think about the sunglasses by L.G.R Only on Safari does it get wilder than this!
From cowgirls to country bumpkins
If the ride into the sun is too wild for your liking and you feel more comfortable in the peaceful and protected nature, then your vibes are probably better represented by a handbag made of all natural materials. To find an ethically flawless handbag made of natural resources, you don’t need to be a hippie with shaggy hair but just simply learn about the advantages of hemp. Hemp fibres are 100% biodegradable while still extremely robust and durable. Talking of hemp btw, before your tent neighbours at the next festival try to roll and smoke your bag once they have finished their stash, you better let them know that industrial hemp doesn’t contain any THC. So the stuff is absolutely legal and you keep a clean slate despite all that earthy stuff.
But before you get so thrilled now that you run into the woods to hug the next oak tree, just let us top this by letting you know: there are also glasses and sunglasses made of natural resources! Should you like to make a certain Swedish girl very happy, you should either cross the Atlantic in a rubber boat made of natural caoutchouc, or choose glasses made of either stone or wood. With the latter, the range of materials goes from light silver birch to African blackwood. Would I wear glasses made of wood? Yes, I wood! You wouldn’t? How dare you!
