Fashion Handbag Trends of 2010 The Animal Print
The handbag, the perfect way to store anything you may need for a night out, a day at the office or a journey to another place completely. Not only is it perfectly practical and a must have for any girl, it is a great way to accessorize your outfit or even to reinvent an outfit or look. Here at handbagswebsite.co.uk, we've had a look at the most fashionable looks this season, which are to add that je ne sais que to your outfit. The Wild Card Handbag Bring out your wild side, with an animal print handbag. A popular pattern for the last few seasons, the animal patterned accessory is set to continue to be one of the most wanted and fashionable accessories. Popular patterns range from the eye catching giraffe and the zebra to the wild cat prints (tiger, leopard and jaguar). The best thing about animal print bags is the fact they can easily revamp a plain outfit and will go with just about anything! The designers have as usual gone mad over the animal print handbag, creating handbags of various shapes and sizes (from tote to purse). So far this year, we have seen the likes of Ralph Lauren create an oversized hobo with Ocelot pattern (painted leopard), Jimmy Choo's suede zebra clutch bag, a leopard bowling bag from Yves St. Laurent and the Longchamp shoulder bag in jaguar print. This year it certainly seems the season for cats! Bring Out Your Inner Sparkle It's back, the metallic handbag of course! Since it arrived on the scene in 2007, the metallic handbag remained a popular design and like the animal print bag, it is set to be a bag on everyone's shoulders in 2010 and 2011. Metallic this season can be worn in its full on glory, shining brightly in golds and bronzes, or added onto a plain suede bag as a complementary colour. Whether you choose full on metallic or partial, it's bound to give your outfit that much needed sparkle. So from the designers, we have seen several metallic beauties which have appeased us this season. Mulberry's Gretchal Satchel is an appealing metallic lambskin purse in a golden bronze, which is not too in your face. Its browney-golden-bronze colour makes it a perfect choice this autumn as an complimentary accessory to heavy brown sued winter coats. If you don't do subtle, the Diane von Furstenberg metallic gold tote bag is for you. Bright gold leather is bound to get you noticed, and compliment any outfit.
