Yellow bag but making it corporate

Updated: Feb 20, 2022

This post was in #collaboration with Bag Boudoir in which they kindly gifted the bag.

Working in the corporate world where everything is dull; I mean the dark suits, the pastel colours, having a colourful bag is a good way to show a bit of personality. It needn’t be something that has to match with your varied workwear wardrobe, it just has to be something that you like.

I saw this bag and immediately fell in love with it. What I loved about it, is its small, compact and versatile - it can be matched with a combination of many colours. I also remembered I own a pair of shoes that have the same print as the bag (bonus!).

Fun Fact: I always carry a small bag inside my work bag. Why you may ask. I just think you never know when fun will hit you; from after work 2-4-1 cocktail hour to last minute reduced theatre/concert tickets you just always need to be ready. I hate tredding around London or walking in small spaces with a bulky bag, I mean I'm already petite! Instead I carry a clutch bag instead, small enough to fit my wallet and phone. A great on-the-go bag.

Here are three ways to style a bright bag

1. Let the bag speak for itself.

Because a yellow bag is vibrant and colourful already, you can tone down your look with an all black look so the bag really shines. This can be a suit, a dress or jeans and a top but the key here is that it is a one-colour outfit, dark enough to make the bag shine.

Suit and Shoes - Primark

2. Wear the colours of the bag

If you just don’t know how you can pull of a colourful bag, match your outfit to the colours of the bag.

I really wanted to go for a bold look so I opted for a two-tone all mustard outfit paired with black heels. What's great is that you can mix and match the items. For example, with this bag I could wear a black top, mustard pants/skirt or vis versa.

Top - TK Maxx

Heels - New Look

3. Match the bag to a pair of shoes and colour block

I thought I would experiment with colour here, keeping life interesting right! I wore an all green outfit – very different to the bag colours but it worked and I actually really like this look. You can combine with other colours too or wear a one-colour dress.

Shoes - Zara

Trousers - Primark

Watch - Debenhams

I’ve showed you three way in which you can style a colourful bag. I realise all the outfits are in one colour but this is just to show you the extreme end. Now imagine if you toned it down, endless possibilities!
