hen it comes to handbags, most of us favour the glamorous totes and clutches but there are times when nothing can beat the high school coolness of satchels. Thanks to fashion gurus who have made the modest satchel make a come back. Designer houses like Gucci, D&G, Emilio Pucci, NEXT and Armani have given a fresh take on satchel in the form of colours, prints and structures. From high school to high street, everyone is working this geek-chic trend in their own way. Satchels give everything from casual to dressy outfits a shot of coolness.
Giving us style inspirations are our celebs. Everyone from Kareena Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor, Diane Kruger, Sridevi, Rhea Kapoor, Dakota Fanning, Vanessa Hudgens, Mandy Moore, Sona Mohapatra to Anushka Manchanda have been flaunting their satchels.
Those who think that satchels can be accompanied only with casual looks and not with anything dressy, got to think again. Here are a few tips on how to style this trend.
It all lies in the way you hold or carry your satchel. If you plan to wear a fitted dress during the night, carry your satchel with the top holder instead of the long strap. The look will give you a good break from the usual dress-clutch combo.
A fail safe way of carrying a satchel is hanging it diagonally like a cross-body bag. This will go very well with most of your casual looks. Picture a T shirt paired with boyfriend denims and a satchel worn like a cross-body. A perfect day outfit is ready!
You can also opt for a mini satchel for dressier looks. The small size of the bag will add dollops of chic to your look. This works great with boxy silhouettes and even dresses!
Big or small, at least one satchel deserves to take space in your closet. Get one today!
