Fashion and technology always go hand in hand. With Elon Musk’s SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket launch recently, futurism is back in the picture.
Well, it actually never left.
Do you still remember the Met Gala 2016?
Where the theme was “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology”. At the gala, more than half of the celebrities chose to wear silver. Some of them are pretty, however, most of the silvers just blind my eyes.
Following this trend, at the Fall winter fashion week in 2017
Chanel, Saint Laurent, Dolce & Gabbana, Loewe, Michael Kors, Maison Margiela, Miu Miu…
All the brands you already know and the ones you never heard of, chose to go with silver metallic futurism.
Sliver is the colour that goes with everything, however, the head-to-toe silver metallic approach is too overwhelming for the daily look and can easily make you look like a Rotating Mirror Disco Ball in the crowd.
Do you feel like you want to wear silver and join the “shiny army” but don’t know how to start? Well, my suggestion is why not start with a shiny silver metallic handbag?
Silver Metallic Tote Bags
For people like me, who like to carry all of our possessions with us. A tote bag is always a good choice.
It is true that the tote bag is the most commonly used and seen as less of a designer bag, however, the silver metallic colour makes it not so ordinary after all.
Frankly speaking, the silver metallic colour is eye-catching enough, so we don’t want too many dramas. Imagine when you look at the silver metallic colour of a well-designed bag with it’s fine and interesting details, but all you see is
“shiny shiny shiny”.
Why can’t I see those details? Because your eye’s attention is fully occupied by the colour, and it doesn’t spot the finer detail.
Coach City Zip Tote Metallic Gunmetal Silver
This Coach city zip tote will last a lifetime, and that’s not even an exaggeration! Made of high quality leather and beautifully crafted 9 1/2 inch handles this will compliment your elegant sophisticated style.
Inside pockets are ideal for your phone or small gadgets and makeup that you want to store separately and access quickly.
Guess Kamryn Metallic Tote
I love the smooth shiny polyester silver and beautiful cotton lining. Some subtle lines of dark stitching split the bag into sections and create an interesting visual shape. The embossed guess logo fits into the lower section underneath two horizontal stiched lines.
When I look at this bag I think of the tv show ‘sex in the city’. Fun times are ahead and I’m going to love carrying it whilst wearing a beautiful summer dress or casual work suit.
If your anything like me a big tote bag like this is needed to hold all of your makeup and other items, but also because big can be better with certain styles where the bag is the centrepiece or contrasting with your clothes to create a perfect jin and yang mix.
with an external zipped pocket for quick access to your id or lipstick, two internal pockets, one securely zipped and card slots and an ID window. I don’t think I’ll be using the ID window but it’s a nice feature.
Silver Metallic Backpack
Backpacks regardless of their size, all bring a sense of a “ I’m cool” feeling, which is the reason why I like to use a backpack to create my unique look.
They are good for photographs too, there are many different ways to carry backpacks and to pose.
However, backpacks which are functional and not ornamental are often not very attractive or stylish. This will change if you choose a silver colour which will make your backpack unique.
This MICHAEL Michael Kors Rhea Backpack uses a goldish silver colour to give it a luxury feel and the rubbed tinfoil texture is its special feature
This is not a small-sized bag so it is suitable for going shopping or travelling with it
..Practical and stylish.

The detailed pebbled leather effect creates personality and the two zip sections allow for the main storage area and a front pocket for smaller items. Inside is a clip for keys and another small zip pocket to hide away your valuables
How to choose your outfit:
Like I said earlier, a big silver bag is eye-catching enough. If you don’t want to create more drama, dark coloured clothing is always the best choice.
Firstly, this is because you don’t want your clothes and your shiny silver bag to compete with each other, one focus point on you is enough.
Secondly, silver is the kind of colour that can easily look cheap, so you need a dark outfit to reduce this impression. Therefore, if it is in winter or you want to create a professional look, try to wear a well-made black coat or suit, to let your bag pop out and not look cheap.
When I say it is safer to go with a dark colour, I didn’t mean it can’t go with light colours at all. On the contrary, a white summer dress and a big silver bag create a vacation kind of relaxing feeling. The key point is to use as little colour as possible. Silver hardly goes wrong with any colour, as long as you keep it simple, you will be fine.
After I choose my outfit, what’s next?
To Accompany the big silver bag, you can wear some silver jewellery or silver flamed glasses to match with your bag, just remember don’t overdo it. And for small silver bags, a pair of silver shoes is a handy match.
I believe for most of you, a shoulder bag is the one you already have and use the most. I’m sure you know the reason why I picked this Hoxis Classical Wood Grain Embossed Faux Leather Zipper Shell Shoulder Handbag. It is a cheaper version of the famous Louis Vuitton Shell bag.
Hoxis Classical Wood Grain Embossed Faux Leather Zipper Shell Shoulder Handbag
I’m 5’5 feet tall and this medium size is just right for me, not too big to make me look like a “Hollywood Diva” and not too small to not be noticed.
It is quite a stiff bag. The good side about this is it won’t easily change its shape so you don’t need to pay much attention to look after it. However, the downsides are pretty obvious as well, it is hard to zip if you put too many things in it.
All in all, this elegant Hoxis shoulder bag is worth the money.
I was so into cross body bags when I was a high school girl. These days, a cute cross body bag still makes me feel young and nifty. These two silver bags can lighten up your outfit easily and won’t take away too much attention if you are still hesitating on whether to get a silver bag, these two are your safe picks.

MICHAEL Michael Kors Large Dome Metallic Crossbody
This Michael Kors cross body bag is a great choice. I really love the gold chain strap and gold embossed Michael kors brand name on the front. Nicole Kidman has been seen carrying Michael Kors bags and looking very sophisticated and glamorous doing so.
If I’m going out with the girls and know we’ll be visiting a few different restaurants and wine bars it’s nice to be able to carry something around from your shoulder rather than having it stuck in your hands all the time getting in the way.
Silver Clutch Bag
The silver clutch bag is my secret weapon. Ask yourself: do you want to be a fashion icon? If the answer is yes, then you definitely need a Metallic Silver clutch.
The Clutch bag itself is a great tool to stand out and with the metallic silver colour it is like
Katie Loxton – Perfect Pouch
The Katie Loxton perfect pouch is a simple and classy silver clutch bag. If you are looking for minimal branding, the small and fancily written ‘shine bright’ logo is small but gives the pouch individuality and I love the phrase to shine bright, as we girls always shine brightly through our beauty, style and intelligence.
Rebecca Minkoff Leo Clutch
Rebecca Minkoff is known for her bag designs that make a statement and often use a downtown romance theme. With 4 years solely making her unique bag designs, she has a lot of experience in the fashion industry.
This silver clutch bag uses simple bold and subtle lines to create depth and a beautiful contrast between the main silver theme and the black zip lining and interior which create the depth and character,
When I first saw this Rebecca Minkoff Leo clutch bag I felt like I was going to be opening a special birthday card on my 21st birthday. If you want to feel special and stand out whilst wearing something tastefully graceful, this is one of my favourite choices.
Cute silver bags for kids
Gucci Kids Metallic Silver Heart Wing Authentic New Bag
Last but not the least, the cutest bag is for your cute little girl. To be honest, I wasn’t planning to give recommendations for kids, however, after I took a look at this Gucci Metallic Silver Heart Wing, I just can’t stop thinking about it.
Sadly, Gucci always has a way to empty our purses. Since you already know how to handle a metallic silver bag, it is time for you to dress up your baby doll.
Girls will love this bag, it’s cute, it’s got pink sparkles, it’s silver, it is heart-shaped, has wings and is a lot of fun.
