Double Your Summer Wardrobe with One Piece!

Hi Everyone,

We’ve all heard the saying “let the shoes decide where the outfit is going”. Meaning that  an outfit can be dressed up or down by simply wearing different shoes. However did you ever think of changing bags instead of (or as well as), shoes?

The straw bag trend this Summer means we can take that lovely shoe saying just one step further. A round straw bag is as staple as that little black dress this Summer. Make the most of the trend to double your wardrobe!

Let the Bag do the talking!

By having a lovely leather bag which matches an outfit and a casual straw bag you’ll achieve two totally different looks in one! Being neutral in colour, a round straw bag can be teamed up with every clothing item you own!

Hence the title of this post “double your Summer wardrobe with one piece”. Keep scrolling for some styling inspiration…

A straw bag may be the one thing you too bring home from Summer vacation!

Different jacket here but the straw bag keeps the whole outfit casual.

The great thing about the round straw bag is that they can be as sophisticated or casual as you choose – they still serve the same purpose of adding fun to your outfit.

Shoes – vintage Prada, others:
