Choosing the Perfect Handbag

Choosing the perfect Handbag

People say diamonds are a girl’s best friend, little do they know handbags come in a close second. Handbags are essential and there is no denying that, but they are much more than just a fashion accessory. They have the power to cast a striking statement which could either kill the best of your outfits or brighten up even the dullest of your attire; with turning heads and envious eyes from the ladies. Other than being awesome, they serve their true purpose as guardians of your secrets, if only you are lucky enough to find the right one!

Before we begin our handbag searching ritual, according to research, an average woman owns about 21 handbags and buys a new one every 3 months which makes about 111 handbags in a lifetime? Why, all men must ask? The reason –not all handbags are ergonomic and pretty at the same time. Continue reading if you are looking for one such handbag that’s doesn’t strain your shoulders, is easy to carry around and fits the purpose too. Follow these simple rules and in no time you will have the perfect bag and personality match made in heaven.

To begin with, you need to be sure of what style, size and purpose you are looking for. If you are planning to carry it around each day, you may want to consider the material and color. To further elaborate this point, a light-weight nude-colored satchel would be more preferable for daily use than a leather satchel with short iron handles. However, if your purpose is to invest in an office bag, you might want to opt for something with enough room and compartments to carry stationary, smart gadgets and makeup.

Secondly, choose a bag that flatters your body type. Yes, you may be hearing this for the very first time but the handbag you choose must make your body seem balanced. To make it simpler:

  • All short and petite women must choose small handbags to seem taller. This means all those under the height of below 5.2” mustn’t opt for large bags. So ladies hold on tight to that clutch!
  • On the other hand all tall and slim goddesses look best with oversized, mid-sized and large handbags.

Another important area not to be missed is the shape of the handbag.

  • Women shorter in height look taller when accessorized with rectangular handbags.
  • Taller and slimmer women carry round handbags like divas on a red carpet.

In order to find your best match think about the length of the handbag too. The length of the handbag determines where it will settle on your body once hanged from the shoulder.

  • Short handbags make your bust seem larger so if you want to avert attention choose ones with longer straps.
  • If you have a peer-shaped physique or triangular body, a satchel will balance out your figure. In case you have a rectangular-shaped body like that of Cameron Diaz, a shoulder bag or a hobo will add the right curves in all the right places. Find what suits your body best here.

Lastly, look for bags that are more durable, offer multiple compartments or zippers, are light-weight with strong straps or handles and have proper stitching. You handbags must be a source of joy to and also a thing of beauty. If you invest tin quality ones, we promise they will last years.
