It’s Julie Bortnick, of the fashion and lifestyle blog from prosecco to plaid, here to talk to you all about something Roz and I have both, personally, loved for a while now. We are so excited that others love it too.
For everyday wear, so long to small handbags and hello oversized. What you’ll be seeing everywhere these days is the extra large handbag, in every silhouette. From clutches to hobos, shoulder bags and totes, they are huge and extremely fabulous.
These bags are not only perfectly chic, but all of your essentials (and then some) fit without a problem. These bags are functional and fashionable.
Lucky for all of us Houstonians, some of my favorite local stores are selling the most incredible oversized bags in all colors, fabrications, and styles.Michael Kors has an Ostrich tote at Tootsies that would look fabulous with skinny jeans, ballet flats, a lightweight blouse, and blazer.
A fabulous Cornelia Guest cruelty-free handbag also resides at Tootsies along with many others from Cornelia. It is the perfect style and color for Fall and has just the right amount of structure to take you from your desk to drinks. (Roz interviewed Cornelia on Wednesday at Tootsies and you will be learning more about her book, her cookies and of course her amazing collection of handbags, all under $350 and all vegan and very humane!)
a bientot is currently carrying a classic oversized tote from Inzi, in multiple colors, with an option for a detachable clutch on the outside, which can easily take you from day to night.
Celebrities are well on their way with this oversized bag trend. Many have been seen out on the town with their large bags in tow.
You can style your oversized bag with anything. Wear an oversized clutch in the day to try something different; put your larger tote on for day or night with your heels. Anything goes, and these bags are certainly here to stay.
If you own a larger than life bag, wear it right away, and if you don’t, move it up to the top of your must-have list because you won’t want to go through Fall without one.
