What to look for when buying a pink bag?
When it comes to buying a pink bag in 2023, there are a few things to consider. Think about :
Magenta pink might be the color of the year but that doesn't have to mean you definitely need to opt for this dark shade of pink. Barbiecore might work better if you're going into spring or summer as it contrasts nicely against a lighter wardrobe. Alternatively, the deep bold shades of pink might be perfect if you tend to wear a lot of block colors like black and white.
There are lots of different materials to choose from including acrylic pink, vegan leather, woven fabrics, or even glossy satin. Choose a material that you think will suit the occasions when you take your bag out for a spin. If you are planning to generally wear your pink clutch on a night out, then perhaps an acrylic might work best. Instead, if it's going with you to more formal events, then nothing says cocktail party quite like a glossy pretty satin.
This applies to all your handbag shopping really - consider when and where you will be wearing your bag! If you're planning for this to be your everyday bag, then you might want to consider something medium-large to fit everything. Instead, if it's an evening bag, then stick to a small clutch.
There are so many great styles to choose from when it comes to choosing the right pink bag for you. A pink wristlet is a great choice if you're looking for something tiny to just hold your cards, whilst a clutch is ideal if you're searching for the right evening bag. Want a mix of evening meets everyday? Opt for a small crossbody bag.
How to style a pink bag - our top tips
We think pink is one of the most fun and versatile colors to wear! However, that doesn't mean that styling your wardrobe to match such a vibrant colour is always easy. If you're finding yourself a little bit in doubt, we're here to help with these style tips:
1. Wear neutral colours
Want all eyes on your handbag? The best way to do this is opt for wearing black, beige, white, or grey to ensure attention remains focused on the pop of colour from your handbag. Try this style tip paired with our Nadia Top Handle Bag in a bright fuchsia shade!
2. Amp up your feminine side with an all-pastel look
Looking to create a soft and feminine outfit? Team your pastel pink handbag with soft blues, purples, greens or even lemon coloured tops or dresses. Try this look with our pretty Miki Drawstring Satin Bag.
3. Colour block your outfit
The louder, the brighter, the bolder the better! If you like to make a statement with your outfit choices, then this is for you. The best way to turn heads and create a striking look with your pink bag is to pair it with a bold contrasting colour. Consider wearing a bright yellow or orange dress or top for real wow factor. For a little shimmer, shimmer, try this style tip with our beautiful Liv Crystal Clutch.
4. Wear pink, pink, and more pink
Why not try the monochrome look? Granted, this is pretty daring when we're talking about pink (much easier to pull off with an all black look), but for the right occasion this style tip could totally work. We like the idea of a pink power suit paired with a striking pink bag in a different shade. Try it with the Emmy Crystal Clutch.
5. Florals and pink are like two pods in a pea
Have a favourite printed floral dress or top? It'll pair perfectly with a pink handbag! Similarly, other patterns like black and white polka dots also pair really nicely with a bold pop of pink. Try it with our Rosa Crystal Lock Clutch - the perfect pink evening bag.
