Trendlight: The Quilted Bag

Left over from the waves of bohemian chic that defined last season, the quilted bag, as a result of its versatility and transitionability, has not only lingered on the streets but grown to serious trend status over the past couple of months. And with the presence of traditionally bohemian and hippie trends like florals on the runways for this season, I have no doubt that it has the potential to be the new 'It' bag.Although the most dominant label associated with this trend is Vera Bradley, several similar bags have been found in major stores and small boutiques alike.

I absolutely love this trend, and not just because my style has a predominantly bohemian vibe too. I also love these bags because, they add an instant punch of colour and style to even the simplest of outfits. With the amazing print found on these quilted bags, even an otherwise plain outfit can look stellar. Another reason I love them is because they are so soft and easy to carry (see comfort and style). Finally, and most importantly I think, is that they can be found in a wide range of styles, prints and prices. There's just so much variety available, especially if you know where to look. As of now, I have a quilted backpack, tote and ID wallet (backpack from Staples and tote and ID from Barnes and Nobles). And in case you fall in love with this trend and want to decorate and equip your dorm/room/locker/desk with similar Vera Bradley stationery and luggage pieces , you can. However, if going all out there and investing in the larger pieces is not your thing, they have several smaller pieces such as cell phone purses, ID wallets and clutches available too. Either way you look at it, this is sure to recapture the essence of summer as winter nights draw nearer.

Love you all and Stay inspired,

P.S. So let me know what you think. Is this a trend you would try/ have tried? Does it fit in with your style? And how would you rock it? Feel free to let me know in the comments below.
