Stylist and influencer Amanda Schweers is one of the best-dressed women on our radar. She always posts enviable outfits and elicits inspo with each new photo she posts. Since Amanda knows best that the handbag is the perfect finishing touch for any look you put together, we asked her to take some of Italic’s most in-demand handbags for a spin—and show us how to wear them with ease. See her style notes below.
Consider The Color
When it comes to color selection, Amanda gravitates toward tonal colors or an impactful contrast. She’ll pick a powder blue hue to pick up the same shade in a sweater she’s wearing, or grab a richer saddle brown that pops against a lighter herringbone blazer. The one we love most? Our Annie Mini Trunk Bag in navy paired back to a crisp white dress.
The bag should work hard but not do all the heavy lifting. With looks so good, Amanda never wants the bag to overshadow what she’s wearing, which is why she loves the minimal styles, devoid of labels, shouty logos, or chunky hardware.
Always with clients and on-the-go, Amanda favors hands-free options. A belt bag that can be worn crossbody, or a chic box chain strap that can be added to a clutch increase a bag’s appeal for this multi-tasker.
Working with clients, Amanda knows that quality counts. Handling a bag that was made in the same factories as Celine and Prada means she never has to sacrifice the touch, feel, and craftsmanship of her bags for a reasonably priced alternative.
Go for gold! Amanda shows us that metallics weren’t just meant for nighttime wear or evening outfits. Instead, she pairs her silver Kayla Wallet on a Chain with a tough leather jacket for day. The go-with-anything metallic is the perfect unexpected color that will take you from workwear to weekend.
