Style Trend: Quirky Accessories

A lot of these bags and clutches that are crafted into objects are so cool to look at. They are very commercial right now, but you might be wondering how you might actually style these with your wardrobe. I went to Polyvore.com to search for some of the tougher ones to pull off. Here’s what I think a person can rock for each bag, so hopefully it gives you some ideas.

  1. The French Fries Bag: This little bag is adorable but hard to pull off, especially with the bright red and yellow color. For this bag, I’d recommend an edgier outfit in a black and white outfit. I’d wear casual blue jeans with a simple white tee and a leather jacket. In general, I’d take a more casual approach to this bag.
  2. The Book Clutch: This clutch is a nice play on carrying a book everywhere you go. But when would someone use this? For this clutch, I’d take a much more preppier approach. I’d wear a pair of boyfriend jeans with a blazer and loose tank top. Again, it’s something to bring along if you’re just going to a lunch so it’s a casual look with a preppy vibe.
  3. The Panda Bear: This is a bag that can be worn with a simple striped shirt and jeans or can be worn with a fun polka dot print. For this clutch, I’d focus on a print. If you want to tone down the outfit, stick to the black and white print. If you want a louder statement, wear a bold color. Just don’t do both, otherwise it’ll be too much.
  4. The Camera: Similar to the book, I like the idea of turning a bag into something people legitimately carry around with them at all times. For this bag, I like the idea of wearing a bright color sun dress in a bright green or pink color. Because the bag is so animated, I think the brighter colors work better here for a fun look.
  5. The Face: The clutch is very animated and I love that it can be worn casually too. This is a fun clutch to bring if you’re going out because it’s small and still a statement piece. The pop of red is a nice touch too.
  6. The Lemon: This was my favorite bag of the bunch. It’s summery and would work for a more formal event. It’s a little more understated too. For this bag, I’d wear a shift dress in a bright color like cobalt blue or green because I like mixing solid colors. For a casual look, I think a loose button down with cutoff shorts would work well with the bag to make it stand out.
  7. The Paper Bag: This was hands down the hardest bag to even imagine having. It’s the most interesting but how would someone use this? After realizing it’s actually vinyl, I thought this metallic bag served more as a clutch so I could see someone wearing it in place of a metallic clutch.
  8. The Toothless Backpack: I actually think this bag is super versatile, but I wanted to add it because it’s Toothless, which is awesome. You can bring this to an airport as a carry on or for everyday activities like going to class or shopping.
  9. The Fan Bag: I like that this is a more feminine bag than the others so it has a much more romantic feel. I would use this for a formal event with a soft pastel colored dress or a floral printed dress. It would also work with lace or crocheted dresses.
  10. The Eggs Bag: This is a cute little pouch to put in a larger carry on so it’s versatile enough to throw coins in or put makeup in.
