5 Ways to Style a Statement Bag (+ Win a $150 Gift Card!)
On the fence about splurging on a statement bag this fall? Us too. That’s why we were pumped when the folks at Maple and West decided to team up with us on this giveaway. Not only do we get to show you 5 different ways you can style up your bag, we’re giving one lucky winner a $150 gift card from Maple and West!
Now, let’s see about how versatile a statement bag like this can be. The bag in question here is the Ludlow Tote in Coral by Botkier. Made of Italian Cowhide with light gold hardware, this bag easily switches from being a shoulder bag to a more formal hand bag.
First up, we’ve got Brit all styled up for a Saturday filled with brunch and shopping. This is a great day-to-early-evening look because you can dress up that amazing jumpsuit with a layer or two, which fit easily in your bag! This look would also be a solid airplane outfit – you could fit everything you need in your purse.
Next, who says you can’t cart around a big bag out on the town? Where are you going to put your late night dance party flats anyway? We love the big bold splash of color this bag adds to a chic black cut-out dress.
Now we’re off to the park or the beach! Can you believe one of those awesome Navajo blankets fits inside this bag? Seriously. Add to that a few magazines, a bottle of champagne, and a good friend, and you’ve got a whole afternoon of sunshine.
Of course, the most traditional use for this bag is probably doubling it up as a laptop case. A laptop fits sleekly into the purse along with the regular essentials you carry everyday. It adds a nice pop of color to an otherwise basic business ensemble.
Finally, you can totally stash a yoga mat in this bag! Yes, it will peek out a bit but that just makes you look like one of those super fit people you size up on the bus and wonder when on earth they have time to do yoga! ;)
Okay, so now you’ve seen just how versatile this bag. Will you enter to win it? Or another piece of awesomeness from Maple and West? Again, we’re giving away a $150 gift card good for anything and everything at Maple and West.
