Shoe and bag combos for every spring/summer outfit!

Who wants to look effortlessly put together every single day? I do, and I think you do as well! I have a style tip straight from the dressing room that works every single time. Here it is: own several shoe/handbag combinations that work with many different outfits. If you have a few shoe/bag pairings on hand, you’ll never have to think about the finishing touches to your outfit. (This is super helpful when you’re in a hurry.) And, after all, this combo is what takes every outfit to the next level. For example, the Loewe tote and YSL sandal that I’ve been wearing nonstop? It’s a perfect example of a pairing that works with almost every one of my favorite spring and summer outfits!

Today’s post is about three perfect shoe and bag combos for every spring/summer outfit. You can start with a neutral shoe, like this best-selling Schutz sandal. Pair it with this Rebecca Minkoff bag and you get a stylish and versatile set. I also tried this black shoe and bag combo, as well as this caramel colored bag and shoe (similar to what I’m wearing above). Trust me on this one, if you haven’t tried this style tip, I think you’ll find it really helpful!

P.S. I’ve been writing A LOT lately! So, I’m including two recent blog posts I think you might like to read (or re-read). And, if you’re new around here, click here to subscribe so you never miss a post!

Of course we all need black bags, but fun, bright ones do bring joy to getting dressed. And, you might be surprised at how often you turn to a non-black bag! This is especially true when wearing a monochromatic outfit.



Straw & Canvas shoe and bag combos

Straw and canvas bags are trending, with good reason! They’re perfect for spring and summer, and very versatile. Great for travel, great for errands, great for everyday use. In an ideal world, I’d have one of each 😉 Everyone could use a couple of these!



Tan & Caramel shoe and bag combos

Great Neutrals

These are the best neutral shoe and bag combos you’ll find. And, while they aren’t the most exciting, you’ll have outfits for days! The bags are all seasons, and they go with everything from work outfits to t-shirts and jeans on the weekend. I also believe there’s room in our wardrobes for both colors (caramel and tan) since they are slightly different.



Classic handbag and shoe combos

I call these “the classics.” All three of these designer handbags are versatile, year around and hold way more than you’d think! They’re under $1500 and you’ll be able to wear them with almost anything in your closet. And, since we’re going into summer, I paired them with shoes that are seasonal.
