Choose the right bag for your life

Before we dive deeper into the art of matching your everyday bag with your outfit, it's important to choose the right bag for your lifestyle. An everyday bag should be both practical and stylish, and it should fit into your daily routine effortlessly. Think about how you use your bag - do you need a lot of space for work documents and personal belongings, or do you prefer something smaller and more portable? It's also important to think about what style fits best with your personal taste and daily attire.

Explore different styles and patterns

When matching your everyday bag with your outfit, it is essential to think about color and pattern to create a harmonious and coherent look. A simple rule is to either choose a bag that matches one of the colors of your outfit or choose a neutral color that complements your look. If you're wearing a colorful outfit, a neutral bag like our Bo Bardi might be the perfect choice to balance your look and let your clothes take the focus. And, if you're wearing a neutral outfit, a pop of color on your bag can be the perfect way to make your look stand out and add some extra spark. Our Micro Curie in the color cobalt blue would be a great choice to elevate your outfit and give it an extra touch of color and style.

Make sure to explore different styles and patterns in your clothes and accessories to create a unique and personal style that reflects your personality and taste. Don't be afraid to try different combinations and experiment with different patterns, colors and textures to find the perfect match for you. Remember, the most important thing is to choose a bag that you really love and that you feel comfortable carrying every day.

Functionality meets style

Choosing a practical and functional everyday bag is important for your daily life and style. Think about your daily activities and what you need to carry with you. For example, if you travel to work or commute to work, a spacious bag might be a must to fit your computer, notebooks and other work-related items. However, if you're looking for a more compact option to only carry your essentials such as your phone, wallet and keys, a smaller crossbody bag or shoulder bag may be more suitable. In addition, it's important to consider details such as multiple sections, adjustable straps and durable materials to ensure your bag can handle your daily adventures. Also, think about how your everyday bag can complement your personal style and attire to create a unified and balanced look that fits your unique lifestyle and needs.

It is also worth thinking about materials and quality. Choosing a high-quality bag is important for several different aspects of your style and daily life. Firstly, a well-made bag will last longer and keep it's beauty and functionality over time, making it a good investment in the long term. In addition, a high-quality bag will give you a sense of confidence and elegance every time you carry it, which can elevate your entire look and give you a sense of pride in your style. Finally, it is important to think about sustainability and environmental impact when choosing your everyday bag. By investing in a high-quality bag that is made from sustainable materials and produced using ethical manufacturing processes, you can reduce your environmental impact and contribute to a more sustainable fashion industry.

Match your bag with your outfit

Once you've chosen your perfect everyday bag, it's time to start matching it with your outfit. A good rule of thumb is to choose a bag that either complements or contrasts your outfit in a way that makes both really stand out. For example, if you're wearing a simple and neutral outfit, a colorful and patterned bag can be the perfect way to add some extra life and color to your look. If, on the other hand, you already have a quite colorful outfit, a more neutral and simple bag might be the best choice to balance the look.

To take your outfit to the next level, it's important to complement your bag with the right accessories. A pair of stylish sunglasses, an elegant scarf or some well-chosen jewelry can all be perfect accessories to complete your look and make your everyday bag stand out in the best way. Remember not to overdo it with the accessories but instead let your bag be the focus and then let the rest of the accessories complement and enhance your outfit.

One trend that has become increasingly popular recently is the use of the sandwich-method. Now you might be wondering, what is it? Well, let me explain. The sandwich-method involves matching one part of your top with one part of your bottom and placing a contrasting detail in between. For example, if you are wearing a black sweater with blue jeans, a great choice would be to match it with black shoes. You can also complete your outfit with matching accessories, such as a everyday bag. Then you could match the bag with either the sweater or the shoes you are wearing. This way you create balance and interest in your look while giving your outfits a more stylish and complete feel.
