When attending a formal event, whether it is an important dinner or walking down the red carpet, the outfit that a woman wears will generally be incredibly well put together. Things such as shoes, hair-styles and make-up are considered. Of course, one of the most important things is the evening bag. Concerning fashion models and use of evening bags, the bag will need to complement the outfit precisely in order to achieve the image.
This does not mean that it needs to match, exactly, but the bigger discrepancy between the style of the bag and the style of the dress, the more risk there is of making a fashion mistake. For the most formal events, the bag will need to be as formal as the dress. If there is some leeway, then the individual might be able to use something more unusual, although this is a risk.
Color greatly affects the way that the bag will look against the rest of the outfit. If the bag really complements the dress, then this may be why. However, a brighter color will stand out more and it needs to be ensured that there is no clashing with the dress. If the bag or clutch is black, that is a color that will suit most dresses. It is generally a very safe and flattering shade that matches most colors and is found to suit most people. This is most likely why many formal dresses are black.
White suits most dresses as well and, also like black, there are many formal dresses in white. Of course, the downside to white is that it can ruin easily and the stains will show up, even if it is a very subtle stain. It is good to keep this in mind, even if you are chauffeured around a lot like a celebrity or a model, it is still a good idea to make sure that it is difficult to pick up these stains.
Cream is a more accessible variant, as it is off-white to begin with. Stains will still show up a lot, but a subtle taint will not affect its appearance so much. As for brighter colors, these can often offer a splash of color against a more conservative shade of dress.
This is a good way to experiment with a more ostentatious color, or to just add a little bit of life to a drab color scheme. Brighter colored evening bags can also be used in tangent with bright colored dresses. This is also a form of experimentation and the right combination of colors can be incredibly effective.
This must take some consideration, however, and it should definitely be made sure of that the colors do not clash. When you are planning your outfit in advance, include the bag that you will use. If you chose a bag with a lighter color, then although there is more room for movement, here due to the subtlety of the color, much of the same applies.
These can be used as a little color accent against something brighter, and are less likely to clash. They can also be used as an accent against black and white for a more delicate hint of color than the brighter bags will offer.
