1 Bag, 3 Ways: Prada’s Wicker Bag is The Perfect Bag To Wear This Mother’s Day

Mother’s day is just around the corner, and what great timing because here at Bag Snob, we’re starting a new feature called Bag-a-trois: one bag with three style ideas to serve up as your outfit inspo. For this impending Mother’s day, when you’re introducing her to that new trendy cafe in your neighborhood, a perfect wicker type bag wouldn’t go astray – the Prada Midollino bag to be exact.

I’m in all sorts of love with picnic-style wicker bags, but this Prada one is a sophisticated and clean iteration that reminds me of the crisp look of the Harley bag by Mark Cross. It’s the perfect complement for the weather that’s warming up, which I wish was also the case for me! See how you can style the bag below.

Style 1 – Darling Details

Round out this feminine look with a vibrant coloured scarf as your makeshift hair tie to brighten the look up (Apparently it’s a thing, you guys). I would keep the jewels to a minimum and opt for dainty gold necklaces or rings. The Prada bag anchors the whole look down  and effortlessly pairs with the stripy dress.

      1. Striped cotton dress (at Mango for $24)
      2. Clubround Acetate Gold Tone Sunglasses (on NET-A-PORTER for $190)
      3. Jennifer Meyer Heart Wire Ring (at Barneys New York for $275)
      4. Loeffler Randall Birdie Ruffle Slide (on Shopbop for $250)

Style 2 – Fail Safe Florals 

Florals for Spring will always be part of the season’s fashion vernacular, so naturally I included a floral dress.  The dress has a quaint ease about it while accentuating the waist, which I find is flattering on most body types. The red also pops nicely against the Prada bag. If you aren’t lucky to nab a shady table at the cafe, pop on your hat: saves you from uncomfortable squinting.

      2.  LOQ Ara Leather Sandals (on NET-A-PORTER for $325)
      3.  BP Floppy Straw Hat (at Nordstrom for $25)
      4.  Elizabeth and James Mckinely Oval Sunglasses (at Nordstrom for $185)

Style 3 – Shirting 

Mother’s Day is a worthy celebration to amp your outfit with some sophistication, without having to do all too much. White shirting is a basic, tuck yours in with one of your white pants to give it a polished finish. I know it’s a strikingly white look but the wicker on the Prada bag will give it that organic textural dimension.

    1. Oversized Cotton Blouse (at Mango for $60)
    2. Halogen Ankle Pants (at Nordstrom for $69)
    3. Celine Glasses (at Bergdorf Goodman for $440)
    4. Emboss Hoop Earring (at Mango for $19)
    5. Pelle Moda Bellini Slingback Pump (at Nordstrom for $145)
