30 Ways To Wear: Rebecca Minkoff Magenta Edie Crossbody Bag

Featuring a beautiful bag for this month's 30 ways to wear post. One that illustrates perfectly how much of a challenge committing to wear something 30 times can be! Over a couple months I've been so sure I'd have hit 30 wears on this bag, I feel I wear it pretty regularly. But I've only just hit 33 wears with it. 30 wears can take a bit of time to achieve if you don't wear something daily, even something that's easily reworn without waiting for the laundry cycle, like a handbag!

It's not the first time I've shared 30 ways to wear a pink bag, I think it's such a fun colour to accessorise with! And this magenta is definitely my favourite shade of pink, it goes with so much!


Cost Per Wear


I ordered this pretty little bag in the post-Christmas sales and got it in January 2019. It was reduced to $168.92 (including shipping), which I just couldn't resist as it retails for $330. At 33 wears, that brings it to $5.12 a wear which is much higher than the $1 a wear people aim for, but is pretty good cost per wear so far for a leather handbag. Considering it is still in amazing condition and something I don't ever see myself getting rid of I know I will hit $1 per wear eventually. I tend to see my bags as splurges that are always good value given how much they will be worn over their lifetime. Excited to keep wearing this for years to come!

Magenta Edie Bag With Blue Dresses

Honestly the reason I love magenta accessories so much is because of how well the colour goes with blue, and I have a lot of blue in my wardrobe. You'll see the blue and magenta combo in a lot of these outfits but I wanted to call out these 4 dress outfits specifically as a blue printed dress and pink bag is a staple outfit formula, and it shows how well the Edie bag works with different styles of dresses and different shades of blue.


Matching Handbag to Other Magenta Pieces In An Outfit

Matchy-matchy makes me happy! An easy way to wear a bold bag is to match it to something else in your outfit that's the same colour. That could be a scarf with a bit of magenta in it, a magenta necklace, or something with magenta in the print like the kimono. The magenta jeans and Edie crossbody bag together are a particularly bold combination.


Wearing a Magenta Bag With Different Shades of Pink

Despite my live of a matchy-matchy outfit, sometimes it's nice to try something a little different and wear the little magenta Edie bag with other shades of pink in an outfit. Blush and other shades of pastel pink pair nicely with the magenta bag. Even pastel pink so pale it kind of blends in with the white tee like in the maxi skirt outfit!


Magenta Bag As A Pop Of Colour In Outfits

Hands down the easiest way to wear a colourful bag, wear it as a pop of colour with your outfit. I do this a lot with my brighter bags. As you can see from these past outfits, the magenta Edie bag really pops against neutrals like black, white and grey.


Magenta Edie Bag Worn With Purple

Pink and purple are such fun colours together and these 5 outfits show how well this little magenta bag goes with different shades of purple. From larger pieces like a tee or jeans to smaller pieces like a scarf or in a print of a kimono, magenta and purple look great together.


Edie Crossbody Bag With Summer Shorts Outfits

A little crossbody bag like the Rebecca Minkoff Edie is a great choice in warmer weather. It's a good light bag and the long chain strap means it doesn't have to get all caught up in your armpit a hot day like a shoulder bag would ­čśů Plus this bag just looks great with shorts and magenta is a lovely colour for summer.


Magenta Edie Bag With Blue Winter Outfits

Of course I like to wear my bags year round and just as the Rebecca Minkoff Edie crossbody bag works in summer with shorts like I showed above, it works well with winter layers too. A colourful bag can inject a bit of brightness to a winter outfit. In most of these outfits you'll notice that I'm wearing the blue and magenta colour combo again too. It really works and is such a staple for me.

  5. 30 wears is actually quite a lot when you think about it. I have but one bag that I use for work and one that I use for other outings, but it would still take me some time.

  6. that is a beautiful bag and quite versatile with various outfits. I think buying something that is made well can be used for a long time. I can't tell you how old my jeans are but they are well made and seemingly last forever.

  8. It works if you have the right wardrobe for it (as you do). For someone who wears a lot of orange and earth-tones most of the time (me), it would be harder to find outfits it goes with. But if you love it, that's all that matters, really.

  16. It really is the perfect shade of pink. I'm always drawn to darker pinks, light ones are a bit too girly for me. I feel like I go through phases with my bags. When I first get them I wear them for weeks at a time and then slowly start bringing back my oldies but goodies into rotation, haha

  23. I will be truthful. I have never ever got 30 ways to wear a handbag. Maybe it is becos' my handbags are all black or neutral or browns. So after seeing your fantastic combinations, it is time for me to go splurge on a magenta bag!!

  38. The style and color of this bag are fabulous! I can definitely see how you have gotten to over 30 wears with it already. Most of my bags have gotten at least that much use since I really just have 4-5 bags that i regularly rotate. So sorry to hear that you had to attend a funeral. My heartfelt condolences and may that person rest in peace.
