Tips To Choosing The Right Type of Handbag For Every Occasion

Posted on

Deciding what kind of handbag you are going to use will depend heavily on the occasion, the outfit which you are wearing and of course, what you need to carry. There are some bags which should be used only for certain events, and others which can work well with just about any closing choice and any occasion which you are attending. It always makes sense for you to have a variety to choose between, from leather handbags to quirky fabric designs. If you have a varied collection, here is how to choose which one you need depending on where you are going and what you are doing.


Style First

Originally of course bags were created for people to be able to carry around their important items, but the reality is that those days have very much gone. Naturally, you will still be adding items to the bag, but at the heart of your choice will be style. Once you have decided upon the outfit that you are going to use, look to select a bag that perfectly complements it. Remember that the bag can be a style feature all on its own, so a black outfit can certainly be combined with a bag that is bold in color. Always ensure that you pick a bag that combines perfectly with what you plan to wear.



Another important consideration when choosing the right bag is to think about the logistics of what you will be doing. For example, if you are going to be outside all day and walking around a lot, then you may easily tire of holding a clutch bag, which works better for restaurant and bar events. Style is important but not so much so that you should sacrifice comfort. Make sure that you are picking a bag that you feel comfortable carrying.


What Are You Taking?

We carry around more stuff these days than ever before such as phones, tablets, E-readers, and of course, purses, make-up, and tidbits. With this in mind, you will have to spare a thought for the items which you need to carry and then choose a bag which fits. The last thing that you want is to pick a sleek bag for your outfit, which soon becomes misshapen due to the volume of items that you are stuffing inside. A bag should always have more empty space than full space, which is a good rule of thumb for when you are choosing the right bag.


Buying Utility Bags

There are many bag styles that you can look at which can be considered as utility bags. These are bag styles that can be used for all occasions, which are stylish, comfortable, and spacious. For example, a quilted leather bag very much falls under this category, so too does an oversized bag. Everyone should have a couple of these bags in their collection, for last-minute choices, and for an option when you just cannot find the right bag.


Remember that getting the bag choice right, will have a big impact on how you look and feel.
