Trend Alert: White Bags Are the New White Boots

We are embracing the whiteout trend this season and thank God it has nothing to do with weather.White accessories started as a white boots and we have seen it migrated into purses.

We have found this trend on Fall 2018 runways at Proenza Schouler, Dolce & Gabbana and Balenciaga, to name but a few. We’ve seen the furry versions of the trendy white bag at Alexander Wang and  Michael Kors, where the white totes were decked out with watercolour drawings courtesy of illustrator David Downton. The white purse accessory continued  into Spring 2019 at Burberry, Alexachung, House of Holland, Chanel, Victoria Beckham and Miu Miu. While the white bag trend has been back and forth in the fashion industry, where it really matter is in the hands of the street style stars.

A bright optic white is the favoured look among street stylers, but any shade from blinding white to alabaster to cream will make an outfit pop. The same goes for shapes and fabrics. Those who want to opt for a white purse that’s more practical, they can go for a wipe-able fabricated ones with patent finishes that help repel stains from setting into that bright-white finish. And never, ever carry any pens or potentially explodable makeup products in a white bag.

White purses offer the versatility of other neutrals while providing a fresh finish to any outfit. A white bag perks up the season’s dark colours, pairs prettily with cold weather pastels and obviously looks dreamy when it completes an all-white look.
