Brooches as a handbag accessory

Brooches aren’t only an accessory that can be used as costume jewellery for your coat lapel or for even ad a hair accessory. Brooches can look fabulous for accessorising your handbags with, whatever type of handbag you decide to carry including wedding handbags and leather handbags.

So if you have a simple black handbag, why not a for example the crystal wreath brooch to your handbag on a special evening out to make it look amazing. You can also add a brooch to your wedding handbag, like the crystal and pearl brooch to accentuate your white handbag or your ivory handbag even more.

Brooches can be used in so many different ways, whether on your shoes, on your clothes as an accessory or on your handbag to make it a normal bag look extra special.


You might think that since you are getting married you have to go for traditional looking wedding handbags like white wedding handbag or ivory wedding handbag. But this doesn’t need to be the case. Other colourful handbags can also be used and here’s a guide to how you can wear your wedding handbags.

If you have an off white lace dress as your bridal gown, this would look great with a little bit of brown added to it. So this could be a brown lace bow around your midriff, and then topaz or brown accessories with a brown clutch handbag. Or if you are accessorising your dress with gold costume jewellery why not try adding a gold handbag to as your wedding handbag of choice.

There are many other ways that you can accessorise your wedding dress, especially by adding a splash of colour it’s your wedding handbag.


Depending on what your bridal gown looks like you might want to choose your bridal handbag accordingly. You should compliment your dress so that your handbag accentuates it and also your jewellery. So does it matter which dress type goes with which type of bridal handbag. You wouldn’t think so but it does as you can get it wrong.

As far as strapless gowns go, a bridal handbag with a shoulder strap would be great as it would look fantastic as it would accentuate your shoulders. And as far a clutch handbags go well they match just about any type of dress. If you have a fairytale bridal gown, why not try a metal bag, one with a metallic finish and handle as this would make you look like a real princess.

The perfect evening handbag

What makes the perfect outfit- is it the dress or the shoes? We think it has to be the perfect evening handbag, as that’s the next thing a person will look at when you first walk into a room. Although you can look stunning without an evening handbag, nowadays an outfit that isn’t accessorised with a stunning handbag is like wearing an outfit without shoes! It just can’t be done! So what does make the perfect evening handbag?

Well I think to begin with you have to think about what the dress looks like. So if it’s a black dress maybe complimenting black filigree earrings with a black evening handbag would look fabulous. Or crystal earrings if the dress would suit it with a diamante handbag. Also think about the rest of your jewellery if you are wearing a crystal cocktail ring you should stick with crystal as your main colour for example. Or if you are wearing a coloured dress for example fuchsia, then why not go for a fuchsia bracelet? Then you have to think about your shoes, and make sure your jewellery and your evening handbag match.

There is a lot to think about when picking the perfect evening handbag, but don’t over think it too, since and evening handbag should also reflect your own personal style.
