How to Select Designer Handbags and Shoes

Many times while choosing selections for our wardrobes we make wrong choices. Many of us pick designer labels over comfort. Or select a cheaper price point, and get a style that may not be our first choice

Many times while choosing selections for our wardrobes we make wrong choices. Many of us pick designer labels over comfort. Or we may select a cheaper price point and get a style that may not be our first choice. There are two items that you must not skimp on to always look fabulous.

Shoes

Always purchase the best fitting shoes that you can afford to buy. Go to a department store and have your foot sized. After pregnancy or weight gain or loss, your foot may have changed sizes. A basic pump, ballet flat, or a wedge in leather, suede, or other similar textured material is a great wardrobe staple. If you are a vegan, look for brands that do not contain leather, suede, wool, or silk. Vegan friendly shoes and handbags can be found at www.zappos.com. Avoid at all costs shoes that look like they are made of plastic. These shoes may damage your feet, scuff quickly, and not retain their shape.

Handbags

While selecting handbags, feel the fabric. Look inside at the liner to check for quality stitching. Designer is always best. Isn't it better to have some great handbags that will last? Your daughters and nieces could enjoy these bags in the future. That would never happen with a synthetic discount store bag. Look for designer handbags in a major department store, directly with the designer, or with a proven online retailer. This will ensure your handbags authenticity.

Department stores and discount retailers like TJMaxx, Marshalls, and Ross have a great selection of designer and name brand hand bags. Choose a shape that is opposite of your body type. If you are on the thin side with few natural curves select a large shapely bag. Ladies with more curves can opt for structured bags.

Color

Pick a color that coordinates with what you already own. Think bronze, black, brown, silver, red, or nude. Your bag does not have to match your purse exactly. The key is to have it in the same color family, or be a contrasting color. If you own a lot of khaki, orange, and brown tones, bronze may be a great color for you. If you're wardrobe contains many turquoise pieces, a silver shoes and bag would look great. Wearing a yellow bag with red shoes is a cute unexpected surprise.

By having a stylish shoe and handbag you can extend your wardrobe. Picture yourself in a great trendy top with dark denim jeans wearing white athletic sneakers and your basic black bag. Imagine a better view of yourself, wearing that great trendy top, dark jean, wedges, pumps or ballet flats and a contrasting handbag. Pull out those dull basic pieces that may be lurking in the back of your closet. New accessories may be all that your wardrobe really needs to look fresh and current.
