The infamous hip purse and backpacks, some people love them (like me) and others are not fans. That’s perfectly fine but no matter what side of the spectrum you’re on, sometimes you need inspiration. As Winter is upon us, I put together a Vegan Bag Style Guide where I share 8 looks using these two vegan handbags from White Rhino.
But First, Let’s Find The Right Bag…
Whether you want a bag to travel in or for everyday use, it’s important to stay true to your style. After living in my White Rhino bags, I recognized what’s important to me… lots of pockets. Aside from being your one stop shop for cruelty-free, vegan leather bags and accessories. These vegan handbags provide just the right storage space while also remaining compact.
Do you tend to dress more athletic, casual or glam? Is color the most important feature for you or is it size and fit? Hip purses and backpacks are versatile. Once you determine what features are right for your style, mixing these bags in your wardrobe will soon come naturally.
Monday: All Black
Black is my classic go-to when I want a traditional bold look. Try pairing a neutral color together for this outfit. Whether it be all black, all red or picking two colors, the ‘Allie Hip Purse will be a solid addition.
Tuesday: Twice Unique
Why not couple two unique looks, a hip purse, and overalls. Another side to fashion is to be a bit daring. I mean why not? Honestly, you never know what outfit you will enjoy until you try it on. So exercise your right to experiment.
Wednesday: Your Favorite Combo
My favorite colors, red and black are two striking shades to wear. Here I used the hip purse as a belt to create a silhouette with an oversized blazer. Essentially you can replace any belt with this bag.
Thursday: The Suit
Another way to wear your hip purse is as a cross body bag. Connect the bag at the last hole and test what side you feel comfortable with best.
Friday: Earthy Tone
The Weekend: The Darker Shades
Following my roots, for this look, I paired the backpack with black. Whether it’s an athleisure look or blacked out with a pop of color, the green stands strong.
Bags have more than one purpose. Yes, they are meant to carry valuables but they also give life to your look. As I wore my White Rhino bags not only did I feel at peace with the fact that they are cruelty-free but a sensation of ease fell over me. These very bags allowed me to tell my story. My story through what I represent as a cruelty-free activist and creator. What story are you telling with your fashion?
