But make no mistake about it, there are silk handbags that can match with these kinds of clothing but if you are going for the classic silk bags which you should, then what you should be wearing should embody elegance and style.

Clothing that will perfectly match your classic trendy handbags are pant suits or party dresses that are silk-based, polyester, rayon, velvet, satin, and tapestry, among others. Luxurious garments that are made of the finest class of cotton are also good picks.

Accessorizing helps

Another option that will help your silk bags upgrade their appearance is by accessorizing them. Feel free to use a pin or brooch which you can attach to your bags but be sure to match it properly if the closures of your bags are gold or silver. Likewise, diamond pins or a cameo brooch will also do the trick. Just make sure that you don’t let the brooch or pin get entangled with the fabric as this could result into irreversible damage.

The value of cleaning and keeping them clean

Keeping your silk handbags is a must especially if you want them to look fabulous and ready for use in any occasion that may arise. Be sure to store your silk bags inside a fabric bag before putting them inside the drawer so that dust won’t get into them that easily.

And whenever you are taking them out, be sure not to put them on the floor as dirt and dust will only attach to them. Just opt for your lap or the seat next to you instead. And in cases where they get soiled, do not hesitate to take the, to a dry cleaner that specializes in silk cleaning. Also, do not use water if you don’t want the fabric to weaken and get ruined.
