Spotted on the runways in New York, Paris, Milan and London, metallic handbags are taking the streets by storm. Every metallic hue has been seen including silver, pewter, gold and metallic versions of every color on the rainbow. Metallic hues are being spotted on mini, small, medium and large handbags; although medium is usually the largest handbag one would want to be metallic; for good taste purposes 😉
The metallic handbag is a fresh way to wear a neutral purse this fall season. Metallic hues blend well with almost any color palette and can be worn from day to day. Smaller metallic bags can easily transition into evening and can instantly dress up a pair of jeans.
There is also a trend towards simple, understated handbags. While metallic bags are not understated due to their shiny and eye-catching appearance, the style of the handbag this fall season is in theme with the trend towards simplicity. When shopping for a metallic handbag, look for clean lines, not a lot of hardware and simplicity.
I found a few metallic handbags around the web which fit perfectly into fall 2014’s metallic handbag trend and assembled them into the shopping widget below. For vegan styles, please visit JillMilan.com.
