Meet the Top 10 Handbag Bloggers of May 2014

When you can’t figure out how to wear a certain purse, that’s a disaster waiting to happen because that means you don’t know when and how to use it. Fortunately, we’ve managed to unearth some great outfit ideas that will go well with whatever bag you’re using — whether it’s a classic black crossbody or one bedecked with feathers. These looks are, of course, courtesy of the bloggers who came out on top of our list for the month of May.

1. Ivana Petrusova from Slovakia

Don’t know what to wear with a feather clutch?

Take a cue from Ivana of Sweet Lady Lollipop. This 19-year-old shopaholic paired her flamboyant arm candy with a tailored topper, a girly blouse, and an even more feminine skirt. The outcome is a look that is frilly, feminine, sophisticated, and elegant all at once.

2. Agata P. from United Kingdom

Printed messenger bags or satchels are a dime a dozen, but when you’re faced with one and are clueless on how to wear it, just follow Agata of Laughing in the Purple Rain by pairing it with a white tee, black leather skinnies, chunky boots, and a cute hat. It’s easy to do, and it’s completely fool-proof.

3. Karina Malina from Russia

Book clutches and book bags are unique accessories that are also great conversation starters. There are countless ways to wear them, but one style trick is to check what’s on the “cover” of the purse, and then to dress according to its “theme.” Here’s Karina Malina channeling prim and sweet by wearing a vintage dress with her Edwardian-looking bag. Get more fashion ideas from Karina at her blog.

4. Micah Gianneli from Australia

Every now and then, we come across a one-of-a-kind purse that is ahead of our time. It’s usually a statement piece, well crafted with a unique silhouette. If it’s black, take a cue from Micah Gianneli and fashion it with an all-black look that is minimal, sleek, sophisticated, and androgynous. This whole getup — including the futuristic Lya Lya satchel — is our favorite.

Micah is a renowned stylist and creative genius in Australia. She is also a fashion designer and has collaborated with brands like Topshop, L’Oreal, Mimco, and Mossman. If you want to be sartorially inspired, then visit her eponymous blog.

5. Yana Fist from Russia

If it’s a bright colorblock foldover you want to use for the day but you’re too lazy to come up with the outfit, then simply follow Russian stylist, makeup-artist, and blogger Yana and pair it with a black top and black cropped trousers. Finish things off with the season’s must-have slides — those casual Birks. It’s a look that is cool, laid-back, and chic.

6. Elizabeth J. from the United States

That vintage-inspired acid green drawstring pouch from your nana looks really cute, but you can’t quite figure out how to style the piece. No problem. Simply color-coordinate like Elizabeth J. of Miss Strange Name.

This Accounting student channeled retro and funky by matching the purse with a printed dress and equally green separates (jacket and shoes). Finish up with a pair of round-rimmed eyewear, and you’re all set!

7. Michelle from the United States

Round crossbody bags aren’t that common, but if you ever “catch” one, try styling it with a hint of retro as Michelle of Catching Couture did. She paired her spherical purse with a swingy dress and a set of pastel oxfords. The result is an easy-breezy style that’s one for the books.

8. Marketa B. from the Czech Republic

If you’re thinking of wearing your go-to classic black crossbody bag for the day, give it a fresh spin. Borrow ideas from Marketa Bartova. This blogger paired her purse with simple separates but took things to the next level by wearing the mix with standout studded sandals and stacks of arm party.

9. Maria Consiglia Rondinella from Italy

Your classic burgundy satchel can get a quick pick-me-up by pairing it with a blouse fashioned with a quirky print, a matching burgundy hat, and some cat-eye makeup. For a funky twist, go with denim cutoffs, fishnet stockings, and chunky boots instead of the usual skinny jeans and pumps. This is an outfit idea straight from Italian blogger Maria Rondinella of Paradox Site.

10. Mirela Oglan from Romania (based in Germany)

Color. Color. Color. For those brave enough to step it up, here’s a great styling idea from Mirela Oglan of Fashion en Vogue. Style your poppy purse with printed trousers and equally bright pieces. If that’s not enough for you, accessorize with a statement necklace and put on some cat-eye peepers.

Mirela used two bags for this look. One in red and another in blue (from Sportmax). The trick is to make sure you wear colors that fall in the same color palette. Will you give this look a try?
