Wardrobe Essentials – Part 4

Hi,

Accessories are an integral part of the wardrobe. I have discussed the essential pieces of clothing in my previous Wardrobe Essentials posts and will be listing the necessary accessories in part 4 & part 5 of the series. I would like to start with the larger sized accessories, i.e. bags, shoes and belt.

BAGS

1

The three classic bag styles- tote, handbag and clutch are a necessity. The tote is an all time favourite for runs to the departmental store and even casual meets at your favourite coffee place. The low priced canvas totes can be found in various colours and prints. The most important of these three styles is the handbag. Most of us require a medium to large bag for everyday use to carry our wallets, keys, stationery, makeup kit, et al. This hobo shaped black bag is perfect for it. Pick your regular handbag in either black, tan or nude beige as these look good with most outfit colours. Invest in your everyday bag- it’s better to buy a quality product than having to change it every few weeks of use. After your casual and official bag the third style requirement is of an occasion bag. This black clutch solves a dual purpose, you could use it as a clutch or attach the gold chain and swing it cross-body. The gold plates at the side seam add to it’s face value. First cover your basic needs and then you could purchase multiple styles in either category depending on your usage.

Tote: Forever 21 (Rs.239) Handbag: Mango (Rs.1990) Clutch: New Look (Rs.1295)
