Brown Leather Handbag: 3 Fashion Rules You Should Break With It

January 17, 2015

I've always loved clothes, especially handbags and shoes. I'd rather save my money on clothing and wear crap, but have the handbags and shoes - Alicia Coppola

There's no denying the fact that women intuitively keep track of all the hottest designs and styles of handbags that are in vogue. However, the task of mixing the right handbag with an appropriate outfit is something that drives women crazy. This obsession, nonetheless, comes from the so-called 'Fashion Rules' that has been made since time immemorial.

Every woman has been told about these fashion rules. Even at my household, I would get a rap on the knuckles from my mom or grandmother if I wore something that they didn't like. Even if your overall appearance was okay, those subconscious dilemmas and 'what ifs' would ultimately screw up your mind. It's like they have been ingrained inside your head over a period of time.

Here's the thing: CHANGE THOSE FASHION RULES NOW!

As much as I love fashion and understand where those rules are coming from, it's time we stop following orthodox and absurd traditional fashion thoughts. Let's usher in 2015 with chucking out what doesn't apply in today's times.

Without further ado, let's check out some of the fashion rules related with leather that you can tweak or break with the help of a large brown leather handbag.

1. Matching Your Shoes To Your Bag

It's just so passé now! There's no need for you to match your shoes with your bag. All you got to do is match your outfit with those accessories, and that's about it. Moreover, it's too much of a pain to constantly worry about these things.

Remember, the main thing is your outfit; everything else is ancillary. Think of interesting ways to highlight your outfit by picking a handbag that's simple and elegant. Even if it's not bright and funky, no problem. Modern times have made it easier to create interesting combinations.

For example, you can take the initiative of wearing a delightful combination of white clothing (dress, coats, blazers, even shoes!) with an elegant brown leather handbag during winters. Trust me, it's a fun way to freshen things up!

2. Not Using Leather Products in Summer

Some of the world's best jackets, coats, blazers, bags, purses and shoes are made from leather. Why I should not use a leather product in summers is beyond my comprehension. In fact, leather bags seems to be trending such big time; it would be a pity to pack them off inside the closet.

If you're still unsure, choose a lightweight material in leather. Additionally, go for lighter colors of leather for summers.

Again, Soulful Collection's brown leather handbag is an ideal companion in summers, even throughout the year. The light brown color of the bag adds to its aesthetic appeal.

3. Wearing Too Much Leather is Tacky

There was a time when wearing multiple leather outfits and accessories at the same time was considered a faux pas. While there is some grain of truth in the rule, the overall look can be a bit tweaked to allow several leather items to be worn.

If you want to look like a rock star dude or chick, follow this simple rule and wear only the following items at one time:

1. Leather jacket

2. Denim Jeans

3. Ankle-length leather boots

4. Leather Accessory: Either a leather messenger bag (for him) or a large brown leather handbag (for her)

However, in the above combination, there's one important tip that you should always remember: Don't wear leather skirt, pants or leggings and anything that's made of shiny patent leather. That's the only thing you should avoid.

What are your thoughts on some of these fashion rules related to leather? Do you think they are justified or just plain lame?
