Every now and then, we want to spice things up and give our bags need a new look. A little customization can go a long way; transform your handbag with its own accessories like charms, silk scarves, and changeable straps. We’ve gathered a few ideas on how to style your purse.
Many designer brands like Louis Vuitton, Hermes, and Fendi sell a lot of accessories to dress up your bag like key chains, bag charms, silk scarves, and even shoulder straps.
Use Bag Charms and Key Chains
A bag charm decorates a handbag by clipping onto hardware or a strap using a key ring, snap hook or d-ring. Mix and match bag charms with your favorite bag to show off your unique style. The most popular designer bag charms: Louis Vuitton Facettes bag charm, Louis Vuitton Fleur De Monogram Bag Charm, Fendi Bag Bug Key Chain and Bag Charms.

Tie a Scarf on Your Bag
Update your bag with nothing more than a scarf! Bandeaus, twillies, and scarves aren’t just accessories for your décolletage: a classic silk scarf can add polish or a dose of cool to any bag. Try casually tying one onto the strap of your favorite Louis Vuitton Speedy bag or intricately wrapping it around the top handle of your Hermes Kelly bag.
Wrap your twilly or bandeau scarf around the handle.
Pro-tip: wrapping your strap in a scarf can also protect the handle from wear.

Tie A Bow
Loop your bandeau or twilly through the handle hardware and tie the scarf in a giant bow like this:

Add A Shoulder Strap
For a different look, a strap in a different material or pattern can be attached to your favorite purse. Mix and match materials, textures, and strap lengths. And yes, we think mixing LV Monogram and Damier looks great.
