Now that Spring has officially arrived, it’s time to move those winter clothes to the back of the closet. I picked up this leather calf hair purse from Club Monaco on a great off-season sale. I wanted to be able to put it to use before it was too late. Here are some tips to make even the most winter handbag work for Spring.
How to Make a Winter Handbag Work for Spring
Dark distressed denim
AG jeans are my absolute favorite denim. The fit is perfect for me and the leg opening makes them great for cuffing. I recommend the dark wash over the light. The distressing can give it a warm weather feel.
The light weight material of your top will minimize the off season bag, and give you a fashion-forward look that is perfectly transitional.
I know I say this often, but a bright lip will do you wonders. It will also brighten up your smile and give you an upbeat appearance.
Sandals or an open toe shoe
Either one of these options will keep you looking fresh. I was hesitant to go with a nude sandal since I didn’t have the color represented anywhere else, but I think it worked out.
Since the color of the purse is black, I went with black accents (bracelet, ring, and necklace) to pull in the color of the purse and balance out the look.
Have you been able to get an extra season out of a piece you love?
