Quilted pieces have always been travelling in and out of the fashion town till they became style staples. One of the most preferred forms of quilted fashion are bags. Quilted bags in any material, ranging from leather to pleather to velvet, any color or size is capable of elevating your outfit to another level. This kind of bags and clutches are a glamorous way of adding texture to your ensemble in a subtle, yet classy way. Though the diamond-shaped quilts are seen to be sported the most, other patterns include horizontal, geometric and even abstract ones. Here’s how to incorporate some quilted beauties in your outfits this season.
Captivating yet classy
Heading out for a dinner date or a brunch with the girls? Well a quilted handbag is your ultimate fashion BFF for a feminine vibe. A classy and elegant piece in white or light neutral shades will do wonders to your outfit – be it with long floral maxis in breezy fabrics like chiffon or georgette for your weekend brunch or a head-turning body-con in hues like red, black or navy for a Saturday night dinner date. Keep the jewellery minimal and with heeled pumps on the feet, you will definitely tick all the right style boxes.
Perfect for the party
This is the season for parties, parties and more parties! For some, it may be an every-weekend affair and for others it’s once in a while break from the otherwise regular monotonous life. But whatever it be, parties always demand that you look your stylish best and a quilted sling bag will help you do just that. You can choose the evergreen party staple i.e. the LBD or team up a bling-y cropped top and pencil skirt, along with a quilted sling bag in metallic shades that will add style to your ensemble, while holding all your essentials. Add on some statement jewellery and stilettos to prep up your outfit even more and you are all set for the night.
Care-free and casual
A long, lazy day spent at the flea market or a day spent shopping with the girls call for a fashionable bag that will look chic and hold all your must-haves at the same time. Quilted bags come to the rescue on such casual occasions too. Choose one in pastel shades like mint blue, lavender or baby pink and team it up with a printed skater dress or a pair of denims and off shoulder top for that casual yet trendy look. Add on a layered pendant and ballet flats to enjoy the day, while giving off that perfect girl-next-door vibe!
Onto the office scene
You all know that the corporate look is all about crisp shirts, tailored straight cut trousers and well ironed blazers or pencil skirts. But now you can add a chic twist to boring workplace dress codes with a classy quilted bag. Quilted handbags in nude or neutral shades add a smart touch to the otherwise regular white-black-beige-grey palette. Sport the handbag with your office staples, a white buttoned shirt tucked into a pair of black pants and along with a pair of nude peep-toes, you are all ready to conquer the world.
Quilted bags are one of the must-have accessories this season and not owning one is a total no-no. So, update your wardrobe with some quilted beauties and accessorize away in style as you flaunt these textured pieces everywhere!
