A bag is an ultimate accessory to a woman’s ensemble. A bag is also a woman’s confidante when she is out in the streets. A good style is when fashion and function amalgamate. You may have a parade of bags lined up in your closet, but do you know when to use them? Writer’s Pad brings you a list of five standard types and their functions….
The term ‘tote’ means ‘to carry’ and that’s exactly what these bags do. Generally made of sturdy canvas or leather materials, totes will hold anything that you throw in them unless overloaded beyond capacity. Totes are mostly unfastened bags, have sturdy parallel handles and a single spacious compartment.
Very chic and stylish, a sling bag has a long strap that goes over one shoulder and rests on the chest. These bags are not too big or spacious but are perfect for a girl’s day out.
The quintessential party companion, clutch bags are nifty strapless bags small enough to be carried in hand. Clutch bags have just enough space to hold bare necessities like money, cards and touch-up articles.
A hand bag is smaller than a shoulder bag but much larger than a clutch. Hand bags are supposed to be carried by the wrist and are best suited for a normal day at office.
So now you know when confiding in which bag will up the ante of your outfit. Wherever you maybe, a woman always needs some one to watch her back. Your bag is your most faithful friend, and it knows how to keep a secret.
It’s July and while Monsoon has hit some parts of the country, other parts still await its arrival eagerly. But it’s never too soon to stock up your wardrobe with fashion items that you’ll need this season. Writer’s Pad brings you a set of Do’s and Don’ts of Monsoon Fashion…
Stay away from knits and linen since they tend to stick to the skin. Denim, once wet tends to stay wet for a long time, so if u cannot avoid wearing it, try not to get it wet.
Leather is an absolute no-no! The moist and humid weather aided with the mud water will kill your leather.
Don’t wear light coloured clothes, especially for the bottom. These will get stained by the mud and dirt. Besides light coloured materials become transparent when wet.
Don’t add on to the gloom of grey clouds by wearing dull colours. Think bright!
Designer Deepika Govind suggests wearing high quality cotton and natural fabrics like bamboo fibre in Monsoon. Crepe silk and gabardine can be considered too since they bounce of water.
Who said rain coats aren’t trendy? Check out the rainwear designed by Christopher Raeburn. Well, you don’t have to get a Christopher Raeburn but you can buy rain coats in bright colours and stylish prints.
Wellies and rain boots are must-haves. They not only look super but also protect your feet and bottom wear from mud. Besides they can be cleaned easily.
Invest in waterproof watches and plastic or metal accessories. No wood and no fabric, you can save all that for later. Did you know you could accessorize with a very stylish umbrella too?
As mentioned earlier, go bright when it comes to colours. Go for fuchsia, blueberry, lime, bright yellow, olive-green and any bright colour that you please. Neon shades and fluorescents will work great too. Have you tried colour blocking yet? Now would be the time to start.
Monsoon is cloudy and gloomy and in Indian streets, pretty dirty. At the same time, Monsoon is the season of rain, the season of romance and rejuvenation. So if you have to protect yourself from the mud and sludge, do it in style. Most importantly, don’t forget to enjoy yourself!
