Winter 2011 handbag trends

September 02, 2011 2 Comments

Handbags are without a doubt one of the most stylish and practical accessories modern women use extensively on a daily basis. Each new season offers a variety of style options when it comes to accessories, offering women the opportunity to vary their look by making a simple change. 

The winter season of 2011 comes with a lot of bold and interesting choices we can use to create a trendy and modern look. In creating interest, choosing the right type of accessories is an essential step. Considering the fact that accessories tend to be an accurate reflection of the main fashion trends, it can be relatively easy to predict at least some of the trends when it comes to handbags.

An interesting blend of luxury and opulence on the one hand and functionality and minimalistic designs on the other hand can be noticed if we start to analyse this year's fashion trend more closely. While it can seem quite challenging to understand how the two seemingly opposite concepts can merge together, designers from all over the world have come up with various ideas when it comes to the defining characteristics that the perfect handbag should have.

Fur insertions as well as animal prints are two of the defining characteristics of the winter season of 2011 so seeing variations of these trends in handbags is quite natural. The idea of preserving the winter spirit and creating the impression of richness and luxury is illustrated perfectly by P&H boutique’s selection of handbags. 

Envelope bags are another classic choice that will allow you to stand out this cold season as it can be a perfect choice for those who like minimalistic designs as well as for those who are in need for an accessory that attracts attention without being overpowering. Whether you opt for an elegant clutch or you go for an oversized version it can be simpler than ever before to find the best style option for you. 

Another type of bag that is essentially one of the main stars of the season as far as handbags are concerned is the Charles & Keith range of bags, exclusively imported by P&H boutique to the South African market. Functional and very practical, these types of bags are a great choice for casual outfits as well as outfits with a modern urban touch. Combining a great variety of textures as well as fabrics, the style choices for the season become very varied.

Opting for clearly defined cuts as well as details that create interest such as buckles can be another smart idea you can use to stay fashionable this season as well as to make a fashion investment that will allow you to stay fashionable on a day to day basis. With the great palette of choices that exist nowadays, updating your style becomes only a matter of creativity so take advantage of this season handbags trends to make a memorable fashion statement.
