Unsuccessful shoes or a bag that are not in harmony with each other or with the image as a whole can completely ruin even the most beautiful outfit.
Are there rules for how to find the perfect pair of bags and shoes? After all, the times when a bag and shoes of the same color and design were considered the right choice and a sign of good taste are over. Now you can give free rein to your imagination and, it would seem, combine the incompatible, although you shouldn't forget about some rules, because our goal is to create a harmonious image that would emphasize our individuality. As Coco Chanel used to say: "Careless toilet - they look at it, flawless - they look at the woman herself."
These are rules, but not laws. Although there is perhaps one law - everything should be appropriate. The evening duet is for the evening, and the everyday one is for the daytime. So, you can combine a bag and shoes according to the following principles:
1. By Color
It is permissible to combine a bag and shoes of the same color in monochrome sets or to recreate ensembles in a retro style. In order to combine accessories by color, one of them must be solid and the other multi-colored. You can always choose one of the shades of a multi-colored element and repeat it in a second accessory. As we can see in the example of the first pair, the pink color of the shoes is one of the three on the bag. Conversely, a plain bag combined with colored shoes. It is not necessary to follow a complete color match. You can use colors of the same range or colors that complement each other. One of the accessories can act as the main accent, or both items can accentuate each other's color in a winning manner.
2. According to Figure
Duets look great, where one accessory is with a pattern, and the other is monophonic. The pattern on the bag and shoes can be completely different, but then it should be kept in the same color scheme. In order not to overload the image with details, you should remember that a simple geometric pattern and a floral / plant print are very well combined. You can use the same pattern for both the bag and the shoes, but then it should be in a different size or color.
3. By Texture
As for the texture, the rule is again that one accessory should dominate. For example, a lacquer bag and shoes look quite vulgar together. A patent bag is best complemented by shoes made of suede or just matte leather, and vice versa. Weaving and products made from straw or textiles in general harmonize well with any material other than their own. Rubber bags or shoes look great with suede and textiles, while metal or metallic accessories are best worn with suede.
4. By Decor
Often, designers add plentiful or voluminous decor to the product. An accessory used in tandem with such a complex element, on the contrary, should be extremely laconic. So you can present an elegant piece of your wardrobe with great chic. Also, you can pick up shoes and a bag united by a common idea, where the decorative technique is not literally repeated. In the picture for the third pair, the gold ball on the ballerinas echoes in the polka-dot pattern on the bag, and the constructivist sandals in pair # 4 echo the geometric pattern.
5. By Design
One of the simplest and most lax rules that is easy to follow is the combination of design accessories. A bag and round-shaped shoes look the most harmonious, and, on the contrary, shoes with clear lines will be an ideal addition to a rigid-shaped bag.
6. By Style
Of course, grunge is very fashionable and mixing different styles creating unusual images is very fashionable, but no one has canceled outfits belonging to the same style. How beautiful can be French chic, minimalism or pure classics.Why not pick a stylish pair in a nautical style or bohemian chic? Many women of fashion prefer to follow their favorite style. This greatly contributes to the creation of an image that is associated only with you.
