Punk has taken a bag seat in trends since the resurgence of the nineties but I am to see it make a resurrection this Spring with accessories once again getting the stud, rivet and nailhead treatments! Darker colors are also in this Spring which is a nice edgier change..I love when punk is in trend because I get to add better quality and cheaper pieces to my wardrobe without having to scour the net..I decided to choose Grommets on bags because this detail is usually reserved for protecting added holes to garments; so it gives a light weight but cool detail when used as decoration.. Below are our faves under $50!
It’s been a while since we chose a specific luxury designer item and tried to find it’s match. Fakes should never be an option (and I won’t preach to you all the reasons why when you can google it if you are interested) as there are so many small businesses that create well made pieces that look just as good as the real thing and will cost a fraction of the high end designer. I decided to first choose the Hatbox bag as it has been all over the runways and is a cool unique shape that can dress up any outfit. St. Laurent is made of calfskin ( which I know isn’t vegan friendly) while the Lux De Ville dupe( which I own the glitter purple version of so can attest to its well made and beautiful craftsmanship) is made of vegan leather and has a quilted spider web design..FYI the bag of the Luxe De Ville bag is solid black in the back so if you don’t like the spider web u can flip it to the back and also remove the skull keychain that comes with it.
We continue our guide with my favorite; the pastel colored satchel! The satchel is a nice chic way to add structure and style to your wardrobe and gets an update to match the sugary colors of the year you will be seeing now until Summer!
