Brown bags are a versatile trend. They almost go with many outfits. It's a good addition to your wardrobe, so get yours from boutique stores online.

I'm going to tell you a little secret: ALL bags come with a brown version.

Well, maybe not all of them, but most do! From women's handbags to shoes, clothes, and accessories, brown is one of the most versatile colors in the world. Brown is the color of the year. It has been used in several fashion collections from different designers this year, and we can see why! This is not a very common color for accessories, but yet it's been everywhere lately.

Remember that brown goes with pretty much anything, so you may want to think about what would work best for the occasion. A casual day shopping won't look the same as a formal dinner, right?

Types of brown bag

First thing's first, you need to know what kind of brown your bag is. There are 3 types of brown bags; light, dark, and medium brown.

Light Brown: Became popular in the early 60s. It is a very bright shade of brown with yellow hues.

Dark Brown: A slightly more muted version (obviously) of the light brown. It's known for its deep, dark chocolate color that will always be in style no matter how many years pass by.

Medium Brown: A rich shade of brown that has just the right amount of reds and yellows to give it character. Unlike other shades, medium brown is usually paired with black or white to give it an edgier feel.

Now that you've chosen what kind of brown bag you want from a women's online clothing store, let's move on to the fun part!

Tips on how to dress up your outfits with this beautiful bag color

The Boho Chic look with a crossbody bag

Never forget your roots! Many boho-style festivals and concerts require the traditional I'm-on-vacation outfit. You know what we're talking about: graphic tees, cut-off shorts, and flowy tops. To finish this look, add a crossbody brown bag that's big enough to fit all your stuff in it! But don't forget to keep it small enough only to bring the essentials. This bag will go perfectly with your outfit because it has a bohemian feel to it.

The Casual look with a leather backpack

Since this is a casual style, you want to keep it simple! For example, leave the graphic tees at home and wear an oversized shirt instead. Make sure that your jeans are comfortable and that your shoes are sneakers or flats. To complete this look, you need to add a leather brown bag backpack that looks like it can take everything in stride without breaking down! The best part is that you're only adding one more layer (the bag) to an already casual outfit!

The Relaxed look with a shoulder bag

When you think of this, images of people wearing sweats and Nike sneakers probably come to mind. To complete this look, add a simple brown bag that fits the theme of your outfit! Since most people wear sweatshirts, you want something that looks like it was made for sports. Also, keep in mind that this can be worn with any type of shoe, so it's easy to customize!

Easy right? Now you can look fashionable no matter where you are!

The Trendsetter preppy look with a textured bag

If you're feeling girly, then keep it that way! Go all out with cute women's dresses and high heels. Add a small brown bag that can go with anything (but not too small) to complement this look. The best part about this outfit is that you don't have to worry about what shoes or tops to wear because you're already rocking the outfit.

When you think of preppy, get ready with a sweater style guide wearing Armani jackets and Burberry pants probably come to mind. To complete this look, add a brown bag that has the same refined feel as your outfit. From looking at it, one would assume that your bag is made of real leather (and it is)!

The Study Buddies look with a structured bag

When you think of study buddies, images of black and white come to mind. The best part about this look is that it's always appropriate for school or work so that you can wear this with any kind of outfit!

To complete the look, add a small brown bag that has a smooth texture like leather with your outfit, be it a jumpsuit or jeans with trendy women's tops on!

Few tips to keep in mind when styling with brown bags

  • Pair your bag with neutrals such as black, white, and grey (and other browns, of course).
  • Don't be afraid to let the bag stand out! Your brown bag may look good, but it doesn't mean that another color should not make an appearance in the outfit. A great way to do this is by adding colorful details like a belt or scarf.
  • Bold prints are also a great way to make your brown bag stand out. We love the idea of orange paired with brown.

In Conclusion

Brown bags are in trend, and it's a great way to add color and personality to your outfit without going overboard! However, choosing the right bag can be very intimidating so remember to keep it small enough for the essentials and large enough to fit what you need.

Now that you know what style fits you, it's time to get shopping for your new bag. Go online and browse online women's clothing stores through the many different styles and designs of brown bags until you find one that suits your taste!
