2009 Handbag Trends: Big, Bold & Colorful!
I am loving fashion this year because we are breaking out of the boring and safe neutrals. Clothing and accessories are louder and bolder than ever. And it's no different when it comes to handbags. Some of these may be weird and wacky, but they are definitely rockable. The 80s are here again and the colors are loud! The last time I broke out my Aqua Net was when Madonna was rolling around onstage with her extremely bushy brows. Or was that the early 90s? Anyway, the point is, it's back.
If you're afraid to fully embrace this trend, then opt for popping your outfit with an over the top bold purse. That way, 10 years from now, you won't remember how you fell victim to a trend since you only supported it with an accessory. For this season, you'll notice big bags and small alike will have bright colors and bold patterns. You'll also notice bags that are studded or fringed, with all different types of over the top embellishments. These bags can easily be found in any mom and pop stores or forever21 for a very reasonable price. Even Louis Vuitton is trying to follow this trend with their 80s inspired graffiti bags. I don't recommend spending that much money on such a temporary look. Unless you have disposable money.
Seriously though, go all out when when choosing a fun handbag. Committing is absolutely necessary and definitely celebrated. So if you're ready to add some big, bold and colorful bags to your collection, here are some cute recommendations:
