The Purse Accessory That Will Take Your Handbag to a New Level

Interchangeable Purse Straps. THESE are the 3 words that girls really want to hear. Designer bags are typically the most expensive and treasured items in a woman’s closet, which is why we would love to change the look of our bag without having to buy a whole new one. When your beloved handbag feels not so fresh anymore, just change the purse strap to give it a whole new look!

Purses that are sold with the options of different straps are all the rage this summer. Brands like Steve Madden and Fendi (to cover both ends of the cost spectrum) have made some fun and eye catching purse straps to pair your handbags with. One thing that I love about this trend is that no matter what your price point is, you can afford a purse strap. Wake up your bland winter bags with an embroidered or studded purse strap to achieve a fashion forward and vibrant summer look.

Designers have made specific handbags that are meant to be able to go with multiple purse straps that they have made, however, ANY purse that came with a strap can be interchanged. How beautiful is that? The thought of changing the strap of your bag is so fun because you can buy multiple different styled straps without having to ditch your favorite bag. As a precaution when shopping for a new purse strap, bring your handbag along with you. You want the purse strap to still compliment the handbag so it does not look super funky. I’m not saying that you can’t buy that awesome colorful or patterned strap, I just recommend that it be in the same color palate as the handbag you are putting it on. With that being said, if your bag is a neutral color, you can pull off almost any crazy fun looking strap or another more simple one depending on your tastes. Here are some handbag straps that I think would be awesome for your summer style. Upgrade your handbags ladies… then upgrade the rest of your wardrobe. It’s all about baby steps here, so start with the strap.

I am a 21-year-old from Tulsa that is engulfed in a world of fashion. From modeling, styling, and writing about fashion I can say that I have lots of knowledge concerning the fashion industry. I am continuing to follow my passion of fashion at FIDM in Los Angeles, and plan to graduate December of 2018. I have big dreams of making my mark on the fashion industry. Eventually I hope my career allows me to live in Manhattan working in the industry that I love, and giving me the opportunity to travel the world for fashion weeks and other fashion related ventures.
