Match Your Bag & Gloves for an Unexpected Twist. FASHIONTRIBES FASHION & ACCESSORIES BLOG

As cute as they are, this fall's shrunken blazers & capes leave a lot of uncovered lower arm area. Take it as a sign that you need to go shopping for long armwarmers & gloves! Matching them to your bag of the day is a fun way to introduce a touch of coordinated fabulousness without being too overtly matchy-matchy - as can be the problem with matching shoe/bag combos which run the risk of making you look like you're trying too hard.

While shades like black & blue are no-brainers to mix and match, reds, purples & animal prints are more tricky. To make them work, opt for different textures such as leather mixed with knits, and light contrasted against dark; prints like leopard look especially elegant paired with complementary but unusual fabrics, such as a metallic mesh cheetah print clutch paired with a chocolate-hued python glove.

Some fun bag/glove combinations to try this fall & winter:
