We love a handbag that’s versatile enough to be styled multiple ways. A bag that can go from casual to formal — and even be worn during different seasons — means more bang for your buck! The Broad Ripple Satchel, a Handbag Heaven best seller, is one of those handbags that can be styled in a number of ways. This bag was featured in the May 2011 edition of Everyday with Rachel Ray magazine and comes in five different colors: bronze, pewter, dark brown, white, and red. I’ve chosen the bronze version to showcase three different ways you can style this particular bag.
Look One: This first look is perfect for a date night — or even an afternoon of lunch and shopping with gal pals. The satchel pairs nicely with black leggings, a pair of riding boots, and a sweater dress for a look that feels comfy but looks amazing! I think gold jewelry really complements the Broad Ripple Satchel’s gold hardware.
Look Two: The second look is a little dressier, perfect for a holiday soiree or a New Year’s Eve bash. The bronze color of the bag goes perfectly with the jade shade of the dress. Pair them with some glitter pumps, a bauble necklace, and a turban headband to be one glamorous gal.
Look Three: I don’t know about anyone else, but I saw the first snow of the season last week and now I can’t get the cold out of my mind. For this look, I paired the handbag with a scarf, boots, and a sweater. Pile the layers on and add a coat and some warm socks to fight off winter’s chill.
Now I know I’m not speaking only for myself when I say a handbag becomes a girl’s best friend — it’s so easy to become attached! That’s why it’s great to find the perfect satchel bag or hobo handbag that allows you to wear it with multiple looks! Once you find the right bag and learn how to style it for different occasions, you’ll be able to take that baby with you everywhere you go.
