What to Know About Selecting a Handbag

It is hardly necessary to repeat this, but the handbag tells a lot about the style and personality of the person who carries it. Even if you are not fully aware of this, the people you encounter at work or play will certainly take note of your fashion choice — it is simply the nature of people to make assumptions.

For this reason, this is one point of fashion where you should absolutely do all your shopping for yourself. But even this can be difficult if you have not set out some clear criteria for your selection. To provide some scope to the decision, here are some points that can help you find exactly what you are looking for. 

How to Choose the Right Handbag 

Just like the shoes you wear and your hairstyle, it is important that the handbag you choose is the perfect mix of practical and stylish that best befits your lifestyle. You will want to have something that generally combines with your style so you feel comfortable, but it also has to be able to carry the various objects you will need to have on hand. A tweed handbag is a timeless choice that can be found in many colour variations to  style different looks.  

Smaller bags are great for parties, but you may need something a bit bigger for regular work and shopping. Bucket bags are a very nice option for holding an assortment of objects and cross over bags allow you to have your hands free. Of course, if you will be going to something especially dressy, a small clutch is an elegant choice.   

Fakes vs. Lookalikes 

Fakes are made to resemble the real brand and quality merchandise but cost virtually nothing to make and bear fake logos. It may seem like an ok idea to buy these counterfeit items, but the quality is especially unreliable. 

Get the Low-Down on Designer Bags 

If you are looking for a real item but are not sure if the product in question is the right thing for you. Take a moment to visit the company website and familiarize yourself with the items they offer before you go out and make your purchase. This will give you a better idea of what you are looking for and how much it is going to cost. Furthermore, you may find it easier, and cheaper to purchase from an authorized online dealer.  

'It' Bags  

Now that you understand the importance of buying the real deal and being aware of the potential for many fakes, you must consider refining your search yet again. If you would like to display some especially refined tastes, consider an “It” bag. These are styles that are in focus season by season and these items do not come cheap. Remember that these items are going to be “It” again soon so it never hurts to think ahead. 

Work Bags 

The best thing for hauling your personal items to and from your place of work is a cross over tote style bag that is supported over both shoulders. Depending on the dress code of your place of work, these can be found in all styles of poshness and elegance. The color choices will be important here. Blacks are always a good choice. 

But you will greatly improve your fashion cred in a stylish place of work if you begin displaying the rosy pinks, rich reds and even a daring white work bag. If you are looking for colors that are easier to mix and match, you can’t go wrong with soft earth tones.    

Mini Crossbody Bags 

For the savvy city girl, sporty professional and bicycle commuter, the crossbody bag is just the thing to keep all the important daily accessories. This also plays perfectly into the tendency toward the minimalist and monochromatic in this modern day and age. This is also noted in the smaller, more-dainty jewelry we see and the fact that all the ‘It’ bags today are smaller and even un-branded.  

This has produced some of the most practical bags at the perfect size. Whether you stick to conservative black or launch out to pretty pinks, it is the shape of the bag that you should really connect to your personal image.
