Coolest Women Messenger Bags

Just like many other fashionable pieces, messenger bags were first made for practical reasons in order to help bicycle couriers, postal workers and messengers on foot, which means that these bags made even in ancient times.

They became popular among fashion world during the 80’s but it is safe to say that over past few seasons they are a fashion must have. Just like satchel bags and backpacks, messenger bags came a long way from their original looks, making them a piece of fashion history.

But let’s focus on today’s messenger bags and which ones are the most popular and what to wear them with. They come in various sizes and colors, for different occasions and it is safe to say that wherever you are planning to go, there is a perfect messenger bag you can carry with. These bags look great with formal outfits as well as stylish office looks or casual sightseeing. Here are several fabulous IT bags, so check out how to match them with your personal style.

Style and Taste

This is a classic look that will never go out of style. A tartan blazer, chiffon blouse and a little pencil skirt are an excellent choice for mature and feminine look. However, if you want to stand out in fashionable way, choose a pair of simple red pumps and a printed red messenger bag. Since red is one of the hottest colors of the season, not only will you look like a regular fashionista, but you will also show how to turn a timeless outfit into trendsetting one. The one I chose if from Mango and the price is more than affordable.

All Lady Like

Another hot messenger bag from Mango is decorated with fringes which gives its romantic look a bit of an edge. While you can wear it with pretty much anything, since nude is great for mixing and matching, my choice is a sweet and romantic outfit, which can be dressed up with some jewelry for special events. Peplum tops are in, while pleated skirts look great on every body type, so this outfit is also very flattering and girly. You don’t need platforms or sky high heels, but a nice touch of polka dot prints on you will make this outfit memorable and authentic. You can wear the outfit during the day or night, at work or for a cocktail night.

With a little black dress and an interesting pair of hoop earrings, this Sam Edelman’s bag with python print and studs is a magnificent choice. The whole outfit is inspired by the 80’s, so it is a great choice not only for a wild night out, but also for a rock concert of your all time favorite band.

Interesting Simplicity

A leather messenger bag goes great with relaxed, casual style. You can even wear it with a pair of fancy sneakers, like these ones from Ash. Choose a simple messenger bag, like the grey leather one from River Island, which is very versatile and appropriate for every season. Wear the sneakers and the bag with capri jeans, a plain top and a cotton oversized vest, to make the whole outfit more interesting. Accessorize it with a chunky, oversized necklace and some cool aviator sunglasses.

Brighten Up

Michael Kors’ knows which bags women simply love and enjoy wearing. This mini messenger is not an exception: it is colorful enough to brighten up even the greyest day, while it still looks amazing with white and loveable floral prints. You can wear the dress and the bag with a pair of flats, but dress it up a bit with a mature looking bolero jacket and a pair of long earrings in gold. This is an outfit that you can wear during the day or on a date. It is simple and cute, but at the same time very elegant.

Girls and Suits

Create a color contrast with a powerful plum suit and a gentle mint green blouse. This way you will avoid the uniform look that a suit might give you. With a pair of pointy pumps in darker green and navy tones and a croco messenger bag, all you need is a pair of dark red earrings and you have successfully transformed a rather masculine look into lady like one.

Back to the 60’s

Apart from black, light brown is the best choice for shoes and bags, simply because it looks great with other colors and you can wear it during hot and cold days, for daily or special occasions. If you are a fan of swinging 60’s, you must like this outfit. It is very modern, but with a careless, vintage feeling.

Polka dotted dress and a pair of interesting wedges with a matching messanger bag are a combination that will look good on anyone, but for that extra something wear a headband with flowers and don’t forget the eyeliner. This is a great outfit for women who like to look good, but who are not too keen on dressing up or working too hard just to get an outfit completely right.
