small black handbag different outfit styles


If you're a fashion-loving woman (or just a woman in general haha), you're more or less interested in beautiful pieces of clothing and accessories. And I'm pretty sure you all are since you're reading this fashion blog๐Ÿ˜‰ Well, anyway, every woman has their "weakness" towards some type of clothing or accessory that she never has enough of and keeps collecting more and more, whether it be shoes, jewelry, jeans, dresses or why not bags. Sounds familiar?๐Ÿ™ˆ

The truth is, we often tend to buy things with one particular outfit in mind and when we've worn this look already, we don't know how else to style it and so, buy yet another new item (women huh๐Ÿ˜…). Which is why it is wise to collect chic, timeless and versatile pieces of clothing and especially accessories that go with many different looks and styles!

And so today I want to focus on the accessory part, bags in particular. A classic black leather bag is the queen of all bags and belongs to any woman's wardrobe. It is a super versatile piece that goes with absolutely any type of style or outfit. When opting for a smaller size and a trendy square shape, you're good for basically any look you wear this coming fall / winter season! So without further ado, here they are:

The three ways to style a black handbag

1. Chic Officewear

For the office, you need a good bag that is formal enough and that fits your daily belongings. This fall, opt for a plaid print skirt (which is the hottest print of the season๐Ÿ˜‰) and a chic leather jacket in a dark green shade for a stylish fall office look. Pair the outfit with chelsea boots and a simple knit.

2. Cool Casual

For a weekend fun with your family, going out shopping or cafe hopping, a chic small bag is all you need! Style it with a pair of jeans with side stripes, cute velvet flats and a chic jacket to keep you warm.

3. Stylish Afterwork

Often times we have different events and goings after work that require dressing up such as heading to the theatre, going out for a dinner or on a date, meeting up with friends etc. You don't want to carry your large tote to those places, so a simple small black bag does the job just great! Dress it up with a pleated midi skirt (which is the trendiest skirt type this season๐Ÿ˜‰) and a stylish teddy coat. Wear the outfit with a pair of heels or flats and you're good to go๐Ÿ‘Œ

  1. I love the third outfit, that coat is so fun! My go-to bag is a Bottega Veneta cross body that is easy to grab and head out the door with the baby but is also chic :)
