Information of Handbag Types

Since it has already been mentioned, let’s properly introduce the barrel. This type of bag features a long body with a round frame and handles that are long enough to be worn over the shoulder. A great example of this type of designer handbag would be the Burberry Nova Check Boston Bag. Adorned in the classic Nova check pattern, this bag is the essence of the uber chic barrel bag.

Next is the previously mentioned hobo. This bag is one of the most popular designer handbag types available with every fashion designer having one in their collection. These bags are defined by their oval or crescent shape and feature a strap that is just long enough to fit over the shoulder. They are made of soft, flexible materials that allow for a slouchy look. A perfect example of this type of bag would be the Salvatore Ferragamo Patent Braided Hobo. Shining in black patent leather, this bag has a unique touch with its braided shoulder strap.

The satchel is a fashionista must-have. They are large-bodied bags with large handles on them that can be worn over the shoulder or in the crook of the arm. These popular purses began as bags for doctors, but have since become a staple in the designer handbag world. There is no better example of a satchel than the Yves Saint Laurent Muse. It comes in many colors and fabrics, making it a perfect go-to bag for any occasion.

The tote is another designer handbag staple. This type of bag features a rectangular body with straps that can be worn over the shoulder or carried by hand. Totes typically come in medium to large sizes. Most people prefer to carry them during the summer months or while shopping, which is where they have earned their alias known as the shopping bag. The Fendi Zucca Shopping Tote is the embodiment of a tote with its large body and top-closure.

Next on the list is the messenger bag. This type of designer handbag is most often preferred by a younger crowd or the chic businessman. It features a large body, but it is most recognized by its extra long straps that span across the wearer. They start on one shoulder and cross the body with the bag ending at the hip on the other side. They are perfect for carrying books to class or important documents for a business meeting. The Gucci Messengers Crystal Collection is an impeccable illustration of a messenger with its long strap and large, rectangular body.

The last designer handbag style that everyone should know is the clutch, and no, it is not something that helps you shift gears in a 5-speed. It is actually an elegant evening bag that can be worn to the most extravagant of affairs. They are usually rectangular in shape and they contain no handles, which formed the origin of their name because the wearer must clutch it. They are a vary small purse that allows for only a few basic essentials such as a cell phone and lipstick to be carried. A sassy version of the clutch is the Yves Saint Laurent Muse Clutch in leopard. It features the classic long body and has a flap closure on top.

Every fashionista needs to know the difference in the types of designer handbags available and a true fashionista should own at least one of every kind. While this can be an expensive venture, there are online stores such as Queen Bee of Beverly Hills that help the budget-conscious ladies stay stylish. Now that you know the difference in all of the most popular designer handbag types, shopping should be less confusing and even more enjoyable!

Handbags can Match Every Outfit

When considering a new handbag, look at your wardrobe and determine the color scheme you most often wear. For example, if you typically wear conservative, dark colors, choose a handbag that will work well with those.

Instead of buying dozens of handbags in different colors, choose neutral shades that will work with the majority of your wardrobe. Perhaps buy a brown and black handbag as well as one more brightly colored purse. This way you don’t spend a lot of money but maximize the handbags you have for the most outfits.

Another thing to consider is the style of clothing you wear. If you are like most women you probably have a variety of different styles of clothing. You probably have some professional outfits, some casual clothes and a few snazzy outfits for club wear or going out on the town.

Choose handbag styles that will work well for each occasion. Choose a typically casual style of handbag like the hobo bag or tote. You may also want to get a more formal purse such as a clutch for evenings out. Bothe a shoulder bag and satchel are good all purpose styles that work well for any occasion.

Classic styles and colors are also a good investment when it comes to handbags. While everyone likes to be trendy and get the occasional handbag that is in style this season, odds are either the color or shape will not be as in style a year from now. But, if you stick with the classic types of handbags you will have a great investment that will last for many years. They are classic because they never go out of style. You can wear them with the trendiest of clothes and the most conservative so are definitely a good investment.

Finally, you should always look for quality in a handbag. While it may seem tempting to go with the cheapest purse, if it will not hold up to a bit of wear and tear, it will not be worth the money you spent on it. Instead, consider spending a little more money for a well made handbag that will last several years with proper care. This way you can get the most out of your money and maximize its use. Affordable handbags to match every outfit in your wardrobe are not difficult to find as long as you know how to shop and what to buy.
