How to Clean Nude Bags (and keep them clean)
When you wear your designer nude-colored bags, it’s crucial to keep them clean (click here to see how to keep your bags clean) from light dust and minor debris. Make sure that you wipe your nude bags off daily with a very lightly damp microfiber cloth. Once you’ve gently cleaned the said handbag, make sure to dry it, especially before storing the bag.
If, on the other hand, your nude bag requires a deep-clean to remove build-up or stains, then it’s recommended that you dilute a bit of soap or colorless dish detergent in warm water and use a microfiber cloth.
You can also use any dedicated leather cleaner and conditioner you’d find online or in a retail shop, instead of mild soap/detergent. Nevertheless, you can use the microfiber cloth to wipe down the bag, rinse off the mild soap, and repeat for more intense cleaning. After cleaning, make sure to remove any soap residue before drying your nude bag with a dry cloth to avoid damage.
Note that for stains that require professional cleaning, do yourself a favor and leave it to an expert handbag cleaning or leather care shop.
Nude Designer Bag Styling Suggestions
As briefly mentioned, nude bags tend to go with just about everything. However, that doesn’t mean you should throw caution to the wind. Instead, like most new lightly colored or off-white accessories, you’ll probably need to play around a bit with your overall ensemble to achieve that elegant yet trendy, well-polished look.
Thus, here are several styling fashion ideas to showcase the above-mentioned nude bags.
One styling suggestion for these 16+ designer bags that’s simple, yet so chic, is to pair your nude bag with light-color denim jeans and a simple white or neutral color shirt. This particular pairing will highlight your chosen nude bag and make it stand out a little more.
Alternatively, if you like all things pastel, adding a nude purse to your favorite pastel shades (baby blue, lavender, mint, or pale pink) will take the entire look to the next level. In fact, light colors and the nude bag usually work well together, and provide just the right color distinction that’s both flattering and stunning.
Nude leather bags also pair well with other tan or fashion items like camel trench coats, cute designer belts, and more. In general, a nude designer purse can easily light up or perfectly contrast a darker tone outfit, especially when you tie the entire look together with another nude item like nude shoes or boots.
These are just a few luxury brand nude purses that are must-haves this spring and summer. Ultimately, these nude bags will help you style all your looks and will definitely be worth a pretty penny later on, as long as you properly protect, clean, and store your high-end bags and accessories.
