If you follow along with me on Instagram, you’ve probably seen that my latest and greatest purchase is my Kate Spade New York beau bag. After having my eye on it for months, I finally took the plunge and purchased it while in California. I’m telling you, I am obsessed with this bag. The utilitarian structure and neutral tan + white colors go with just about anything…and good news! I am going to show you 3 great ways to wear your beau all over town (you know you want to):
All you need for the 3 different looks are your fabulous beau, the cross body strap it comes with, and a fun scarf (medium length is best, but any scarf will work) I threw on a simple black and white look, because I knew beau can make even the plainest outfit pop!
Look #1: Crossbody
Wear your beau while you’re running around town – it adds instant flair and style to your look and won’t get in the way thanks to it’s cross body strap. It’s as easy as that.
Look #2: Plain and Simple
For this second look, all you have to do is remove the cross body strap. I love taking this more lady-like approach to carrying my bag. Plain, simple, and sophisticated – it speaks for itself. If you’re a 9-5 girl, keep the cross body strap on during the day and tuck it inside your beau when you’re taking your look from day to night.
Look #3: Make it your own!!
While I absolutely adore my beau all on it’s own…I love to dress it up/add a little bit of my own unique style. To do this, I just take a scarf (any scarf!) that compliments my outfit or just makes me feel fabulous and tie it on. This easy step defines your bag and makes it just a little bit more your own. Love.
