Usually for fancy occasions one grabs a clutch to complete her look, however; a bold colored satchel is the perfect statement accessory and conversation piece. To contrast the bold colored bag, adding pieces in additional, but complimenting colors works best. For example, I chose to wear a dress with a magenta colored background that had hues of teal, mint green, and dark purple, which allowed me to then effortlessly add a pair of strappy mint green heels to balance out the purse. A gold statement necklace and cream belt with gold detailing finished off the look, which allowed it to be sophisticated, rather than overwhelming.
