1. Pretty Picnic Basket

Meet Ashlyn of Triple Thread, whose fashion blog is unfortunately no longer available online. Sure, her outfit looks pretty simple, but the fish print shirt and that pretty picnic basket made a whole lot of difference.

In fact, this look is all about the bag. Seriously, we can’t take our eyes off it. We want it!

It’s preppy and perfectly coordinated. She also picked the right cross-body bag to cap it all off — a poppy persimmon-hued purse from Kate Spade!

These pictures from Rosalyn Kirkman of My Fancy Pants easily caught our attention

They are literally all about the bag (and perhaps those leopard-print heels as well). Both extras are from Kate Spade if you haven’t already figured that out yet.

6. Proenza Schouler Mini Bag

Zina of Fashion Vibe is a multitasking maven. She’s a brand manager, a photographer, and a blogger. On top of that, she looks like a supermodel, has this really cool fashion sense, and owns an envy-worthy collection of designer pieces.

7. Buttery Brown Backpack

A good bag makes an outfit. For a case in point, look at this boho-chic look put together by the stylish blogger Gabriela of Kolorowa Dusza. Her buttery brown ultra-detailed backpack really pulled the whole look together, yes?

8. J. Crew Tote Bag

Sometimes, a simple no-fuss look is enough to make a statement. Proving that is this two-tone style put together by Ashley of Ash N’ Fashn.

The dark blue and beige combo is perfectly pristine. And it made the J. Crew tote bag stand out beautifully. Very classy, indeed.

10. Donut-Print Laptop Sleeve

Playful extras always catch the eye. Take, for instance, Prisca’s donut-print laptop sleeve. We love the way it complemented her cross-print denim frock and a graphic tee.

11. Stressed But Well Dressed Clutch

Palm tree and floral prints can look sophisticated, too. Just make sure you pick structured pieces with clean silhouettes.

Finish the attire with an equally structured handbag in a classic hue or in a color that complements your getup. Even better, pick one with a statement, like the dress from Zara worn by Marsha Campbell of Style of a London Tall Girl.

12. Blue It Bag

Mid-thigh denim cutoffs can give your outfit a boyish spin, but make sure you polish it up with stunning high heels and an “it” bag. Style cue from Sasa Zoe of Shall We Sasa and add a dash of extra by wrapping a printed shirt around your waist.

13. Brown Suede Bucket Bag

Bucket bags and backpacks are back in style. Try a safari-inspired look by picking one that comes in brown suede.

Go rustic by mixing it with separates in earthy hues — such as a chunky sweater, linen shorts, strappy flat sandals, and a rope-like bracelet.

14. Chain-Detailed Tote

Black-and-white outfits don’t have to look boring. Keep things sexy by showing bits of skin. Like Anna Gotsyk of Dream. Love. Shop., wear a crop top and mix the piece with a short skater skirt.

Spice things up with high heels and a simple but glam chain-detailed tote. Easy peasy, right?

15. Studded Fringed Bucket Bag

Give your romantic lace dress a different flavor by adding a touch of funk and edge to it

Mix the frock with creepers and a studded and fringed bucket bag, and you’re all set. Not content with a combo? Try topping the look with a floppy hat. Brittany Bao’s fashion blog, I Would Go Out Tonight, is unfortunately no longer available online.

16. Trendy Fringe Bag

Can you rock fringes, ruffles, and floral print in one go?

We say, why not?! Keep things a little masculine, though. Go with floral-print pants and a ruffled top that comes in a simple silhouette. Finish with a fringed bag, and voila! You’re all set.

We’re taking this advice from the filmmaker, graphic designer, and blogger Veronica Foregger. Her blog, Fancy to Go, is unfortunately no longer available online.

17. Zebra Print Handbag

Take inspiration from Paulina Baglaj of MaGicLovv and give your black-and-white attire a refreshing twist by mixing it with a boldly printed purse, such as a zebra or striped handbag like the ones below.

18. Poppy Yellow Handbag

We don’t know her name, but we love her fashion sense. Aside from bold prints, one other quick way to spice up a black-and-white outfit is by infusing it with a splash of color, such as a poppy yellow bag.

It’s a bold and statement-making accessory, so keep your separates simple in silhouette. Her fashion blog, Fashion from Smyrna, is unfortunately no longer available online.

19. Colorblock Tote Bag

Light neutrals can look exceptionally immaculate and beautiful when paired with shots of tan and navy. Try this ballerina-inspired ensemble from Nicoleta.

Wear a beige trench coat over nude flats and a fit-and-flare frock in the same hue. Finish things off with a bun, dark eyewear, and a colorblock tote in navy and tan.
