Spring is finally here! With the weather warming up and flowers blooming, we were inspired to share inspiration for different outfits. We’ve covered everything from work and meetings, weekends spent outdoors, events, markets and coffee catch-ups with friends, and of course shopping! We know that you are busy women so we’ve focused on showing you how to style our handbags crossbody and in other functional ways so you can have your hands free.
Outfit Inspiration for Work and Meetings

Spring at the office and for meetings calls for more relaxed and flowy fabrics. We are loving an all white outfit with shirt and trousers but make sure to still bring a lightweight jacket or blazer as the mornings and evenings may still be a little chilly. Our latest addition to the Katya Komarova family, our Oversized Shoulder Bag, is the perfect addition to your work and meeting outfit. It’s spacious enough so you can bring everything you need, including your laptop, but is still effortlessly chic and classy. It also doubles as the perfect bag for a weekend getaway, you will be able to bring extra outfits and accessories while remaining fashionable.
Outfit Inspiration for Weekends Outdoors

Personally, I enjoy spending the weekends exploring the amazing wineries around South Australia’s Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale. I’m loving Parisian vibes for weekends spent outdoors which pairs perfectly with our Mono Purse which is a baguette style bag - see what we did there ;) Outfits featuring jeans and beautiful shirts are a must, styled with a leather jacket for when the sun goes down or if you’re in the shade. Weekends outdoors also call for beautiful flowy dresses if that’s more your thing. Our Mono Purse has all the room you need to bring your essentials while spending the day exploring and the great thing about this bag is you can wear it crossbody so you have your hands free to hold your wine or explore local shops. The Mono Purse will also see you through to the evening as it’s delicate and elegant.
Outfit Inspiration for Events and Nights Out

We’re so excited to get out and about in the evenings more often now that the nights won’t be so chilly. Leather is obviously our go-to and leather pants are a great way to amp up your outfit. We’re inspired by pairing leather pants with fresh and interesting knitwear to stay warm enough while showing a bit of skin and feeling sexy. Our Mini Mono Purse is the perfect handbag for a night out or date night as it’s lightweight, will fit your essentials (minus your phone) and to be honest, we think it’s such an adorable addition to any outfit. If you’d like to know more about what fits into each of our handbags, check out our recent blog post Inside My Katya Komarova Bag. Our Mini Mono Purse, like all of our bags, can be paired with your choice of Cotton Strap and Handle, meaning you can mix and match depending on if you want it to match your outfit or to make a statement, and if you want it cross body or on your arm.
Outfit Inspiration for Markets and Catching Up with Friends

Catching up with friends and going to markets (while remaining safe and socially distanced, of course) is a great time to explore your creative styling side. We can’t go past jeans so to dress them up, pairing light wash denim with a blazer adds instant sophistication. If you know you will be walking around markets, a cute kitten heel will still be comfortable but look polished. Our Bucket Bag is the perfect bag for your outings during the day in Spring as it’s big enough to fit a water bottle (reusable of course) and small diary or book with all of your essentials, but can still be worn cross body so your hands are free to eat, drink and shop - you’re welcome.
Outfit Inspiration for Shopping

A relaxed but chic outfit is perfect for shopping. A lightweight sweater paired with trousers and a belt looks put together but is easy enough to change in and out of, in case you want to try on clothing. You can also wear a tee underneath your sweater if the day is sunny or if you warm up from trying on clothes so you can take off the sweater and be more comfortable. To avoid having to hold too many shopping bags, our On-Duty Bag will give you space to store your purchases and your outer layers while you shop or eat lunch. It’s a great versatile bag, you can wear it with both a handle, like our Leather Handles, and a Cotton Strap so you can choose how it’s most comfortable throughout your shopping trip.
