Silk flower handbags offer a touch of femininity that is perfect special occasions or for the long days of spring and summer. From bags with a single silk flower and a hint of country charm to dramatic designs with oversize flowers, the effect of nature's budding beauties offers incredible inspiration for silken flower handbag designs.
About Silk Flower Handbags
Silk flower handbags are typically available in one of the following styles:
- Handbags made with leather, straw, or some other material and accented with a single flower or grouping of silk flowers
- Handbags designed to imitate a type of silk flower, in an oversize design (These may be created using fabric, silk, or other materials)
- Handbags made from silk flower petals, which may be adorned with silk flowers as well
- Silk handbags with printed or screened floral designs
Although some lower priced-versions of accented, print, or oversize silk flower designs are available, handbags created using silk flower petals are often handmade and are accompanied by a higher price tag.
When to Wear
Fabric, leather, or straw bags accented with a single silk flower or arrangement of flowers are perfect for many occasions in spring and summer. Shopping, lunches, early dinners, outings with friends, and many other events are perfectly appropriate times to tote your flower-adorned bag. Although a few more subdued silk flower styles may be available, for the most part these bags are not designed for professional or office wear.
The evening bag is by far the most appropriate designation for most types of silken flower bags. Flirty, but elegant, these bags can add a special touch to evening attire. The rich jewel tones of many evening gowns coordinate well with the colors of floral handbags in silk.
Weddings, particularly spring and summer weddings, are also a popular sighting for these bags. Oversize playful flowers, such as daisies, are adorable for flower girls. More sophisticated versions are a wonderful accompaniment for the attire of the maid of honor and bridesmaids. Cream or white silken flower bags can be the ideal handbags for the bride herself.
