A fabulous statement bag is for those days where you want to be as inconspicuous as possible, but still want to look glamorous. (Like those less-than-awesome hangover days?) We got you, girl. Here at Bullet Blues, we know the struggle is real. For those days, look no further than the tried-and-true celeb combo of the statement bag, sunglasses, and a cute hat.
The only thing we Bullet Blues girls love almost as much as our designer jeans is a cool statement handbag, and nothing says ‘don’t look at my face!’ on a strugglebus day like a big ol’ statement bag – the bigger the better! Some of our favorite stylish celebs have this look down to a science: read on to learn how to wear their killer statement bag + sunnies + hat looks!
Kourtney Kardashian Statement Bag
Always rocking a beautiful statement bag, reality TV star and entrepreneur Kourtney Kardashian is a member of one of the most fashionable families in Hollywood; she always looks polished and pulled together – even when she probably doesn’t feel that way! This classic and chic black one white look would be pretty forgettable if not for that drop-dead-gorgeous statement bag from Celine.
Start with your neutral but polished bases – a drapey, crepey, boho-y blouse and a pair of sick skinny jeans, like Bullet Blues Chic Parisien Skinny Cigarette Jean. Then throw on tons of edgy black accessories, like a black velvet blazer, quilted biker boots, a trendy black hat and round sunnies. The final touch is the luxe Celine Trapeze bag, in an interesting and covetable silhouette.
Jennifer Lawrence Statement Bag
Aside from being an Oscar-winning actress, the star of the Hunger Games franchise, and the coolest girl on the internet, Jennifer Lawrence is well known for her polished red carpet style, always carrying a nice statement bag. Her laid-back street style is just as enviable. Here, Lawrence looks cool and comfy in a crocheted crop top, low-slung boyfriend jeans, and slip on sneakers.
Get the Look with a great statement bag
For Lawrence’s effortless look, pair Bullet Blues Le Copain Reverie Boyfriend jeans with a cute black bra and floaty, lacy top; the translucency of the lace will add just a peek of skin and bra, the perfect feminine counterpoint to the jeans’ masculine silhouette. Cool-girl staples like leopard slip-ons, a felt hat, and aviator sunnies give this simple outfit a trendy vibe.
We combined Lawrence’s purse and travel bag into one purse here – the perfect, western inspired bucket bag from Pendleton. If a Pendleton bag is a little out of your price range, there are some good options for you, too.
Actress and model Rosie Huntington-Whitely doesn’t have to do much to look chic and glamorous, even on her off-days. When paired with a neutral outfit like this, her cherry-red statement bag almost – almost – steals the show in this look. It’s hard to hide genetics like that, isn’t it?
A chic white base of a simple white t and Bullet Blues Miami Chic Cropped Skinny Jeans gets an unexpected update from the addition of peach and camel colored accessories, like a felt wide-brimmed hat, an ankle-length duster jacket, and camel booties. A pair of trendy tortoiseshell glasses picks up the camel and peach-tones of the outfit nicely, and adds a little old-school hollywood flair.
Add a final dash of color with a gorgeous bag like this Kate Spade tote, and you have a lovely, feminine, and warm look that’s perfect for the glamorous model-off-duty that you are.
