Shoes and bags may be overlooked sometimes when you’re rushing to get dressed, but they play a crucial role in defining your look. Take, for example, a white shirtdress. Pair it with pumps and a handbag and be instantly transformed into a CEO of a Fortune 500 company. Slip into flat mules and a crossbody bag and you look ready to kickstart a Saturday of errands. The point we are trying to make is that you should never underestimate the power of a good bag-shoe set can have on your clothes. We’ve pulled together eight bag-shoe pairs that we love for every occasion.

Planning to go on a romantic date this weekend, or take the family out for a nice brunch? Slip into these stylish flat mules and grab a patterned shoulder bag before you dash.
