The party is just over. We ushered in a brand new 2018 as we bid adieu to 2017.
The world over, the party went on until the wee hours of the morning. Great music, good food and a super group of people got together to celebrate a whole trip around the Sun.
Whether the event you went to was just simple friends and family one or a big gig that all the who’s who was eager to get invited to, getting ready for that must have been your number one agenda.
You made sure you got the dress in proper order, you got the hair spa appointment, the manicure and the pedicure too done a day or max two in advance. The shopping for the perfect shoes too must have taken its importance to ensure the perfect look, from head to toe.
The earrings, the eye make-up, the jewellery all was in place …. But wait. Are we forgetting something?
Ever wondered, what others notice when you make that grand entry into the party or into anyone’s house for a social event – trust us on this… they notice everything. Not just the earrings, the bracelets or the shoes or the well cut and perfect fitting dress, they will notice everything, right from how you wore your hair that day, to what colour were the shoes. Err… did we jump from the hair to the shoes directly… there is something important that you held in your hand – yes, we are talking about the wallet, purse or the clutch that you carried. Unfortunately or just by plain over oversight, most of us neglect this accessory or keep it as a last priority item. Here is a quick rundown of that you can look for in this area.
The traditional clutch –
This comes in various colours and textures. The typical croc skin style and the boa skin style are a hot favourite in his category – blending well with a white or black dress or an evening gown that shows the class you wish to flaunt. The typical black, white, blue and red in various leather finish are also popular based on how critical the colour match is.
The bigger but not too big clutch –
This one comes with a belt or a chain that you can hang over the shoulder. The belt often is in the same texture and colour as the purse and has the option to be neatly folded and tucked into the purse itself making it a versatile and traditional clutch whenever you need it to be. Metal chains as belts bring out the jazz in them as well. Gold, white or steel are the most popular colours available for these belts.
The big one –
This can also double up as your tote and has a number of compartments that can help you keep those ever so essential items that are a must-have in every girl’s purse.
Last but not the least – The simple money wallet
Sometimes you wonder if this one is a men’s wallet or a women’s wallet. As much as you would appreciate, minimalist fans love to keep it as simple as they can. This one just carries your cash, a few cards and maybe a single key without a keychain. Again, this one is a handheld accessory and carrying it with your cell-phone can become a bit irksome, especially if you are going to each and the crowded party has no free tables that you can sit at. Colours – usual, black and brown are hot favs. Some funky white and reds can also be the fancy of few out there.
Bonus tip: these can be pretty slim and do have an uncanny knack to fall into gaps between chairs and sofas… so be careful and place them on the table when you sit to eat. Make sure the material is good quality so that simple water or small food items bits don’t stain them.
