3 Chic Ways To Style The Joseph Ribkoff Handbag

The Canadian fashion institution that is Joseph Ribkoff is synonymous with effortless style and high class quality. No truer words have been spoken when it comes to Joseph Ribkoff’s luxurious handbag collections, pulling together elegance, quality materials and timeless design. Every woman knows, no outfit is complete without a stylish handbag to carry all of our essentials but it’s how you pull your outfit together with your accessories that really tells your unique fashion story.

We’ve picked three of our signature Joseph Ribkoff handbags and styled them with a full outfit, all crafted direct from 1ére Avenue. Use these tips to help you style your next outfit and bring your favourite JR bag to the limelight.

For Those Who Love A Practical Look…
Cross body bags aren’t just an on trend silhouette this season, they’re also extremely practical. If you love a hands-free approach to your fashion accessories, the cross body bag could be just what you need.
The Kanata Cross Body Bag provides three looks in one, first a standard cross body position and a long length over the shoulder position using two interchangeable and removal straps, one a gold link chain and the other a soft, self fabric. Removing all the straps, creates the third look, a strapless clutch. The Kanata is great for women looking for versatility in a handbag and the white and navy version makes just enough of a statement while still being appropriate for everyday use.
We love pairing the Kanata with dress style 184471 in Midnight Blue and finishing off the look with Jacket Style 181524 in Ivory for a Parisian Chic look. The translucent lace cut outs of this zip down jacket will allow the deep navy shades of the dress to shine through a little, creating a dynamic layering look. Professional enough for a business meeting yet stylish enough for lunch with the girls, here you’ve got a cohesive outfit, perfect for a variety of occasions.

For Those Who Dare To Go Bold…

Sometimes you just want to be brazen with your fashion choices and that’s where the Firenze Satchel Bag comes into play! The bright strawberry jam hue of this attention demanding satchel will turn heads for all the right reasons. The handles are finished with striped sashes and its deep sides are perfect for days when you simply have too much to take with you. Who said big bags have to be boring?

A statement handbag such as this should be the focal point of your outfit. Keep the rest of your fashion picks understated so they don’t compete for attention. We love to pair ours with Pant Style 183116 and Jacket Style 183343 with a light camisole top underneath. The rivets in the matching red jacket compliment the rivets on the Firenze while the demure black pants give just a nod to the red theme through a small flower motif. This is a great look for the weekend and date nights and you’ll be able to mix and match the pants and jacket as separates to create more outfits in your existing closet.

For Those Who Love A Youthful Dynamic

Look no further than the Samara Tote, one of Joseph Ribkoff’s most futuristic looks this season. The Samara Tote features a transparent outer shell with a soft silver draw string pouch inside and is finished with dual shoulder straps. It’s certainly fashion forward and extremely dynamic, perfect for fashion lovers who consider themselves trend setters.
Pair your Avant Garde handbag with Pant Style 184792 a navy twill printed with subtle copper, keeping the metal, futurist theme consistent without being too obvious. Finish the look off with Top Style 184125 in stunning mustard yellow, the harmonious color to navy on the color wheel chart. This shade will balance out the deep nature of navy and highlight the copper print, pulling the pieces together for a fashion match made on 1ére Avenue!
