Fashion bag: choose the right one

How do I recognize a woman? You can pay attention to makeup, hands, clothes or shoes. However, there is a thing that can tell the whole truth about the hostess, give out all the most intimate secrets and introduce her to the character. As you may have guessed, it will be about a woman’s handbag.
Today we will look at the bag not as the ruler and Keeper of women’s secrets. We will tell you how to “tame” this ruler and become the owner of the ideal thing that performs several functions:

Stylish accessory function;
The “storage” function of the necessary things.
Hobo, Clutch, Kelly, Tote … Selecting a women’s bag is not an easy task!
Before practice – a little theory. What types of handbags are there?
Here is a sample list of fashion accessories:

1. Shoulder bag, or, as it is also called – saddle. This model has rounded bottom edges and tapers to the top. As a rule, its holder is a long strap that allows you to carry the bag over your shoulder.
2. Bag-bag (hobo) is a semi-circular accessory of a soft shape on a short, relatively wide strap handle. Models of this type are usually sewn not only from leather. Hobo-based textiles are also widely spread in the market.
3. Next on the list is a model with a delicious name-baguette bag. This accessory is usually worn at the bend of the elbow, because its feature is short handles. Miniature size, rectangular or slightly trapezoidal shape – the second feature of the model.
4. Bag-bag of rectangular shape (Tote). You can’t find a more convenient accessory for women who should have not only a wallet and phone in their purse, but also Slippers and a Hiking pot. So, a little exaggerating, I want to say that the Tote is a very roomy and practical “manual” accessory.
5. Postman’s bag – leather or textile. It has a wide long handle and is worn over the shoulder. A feature of this model is often a strap fastener.
6. The Kelly bag is a soft or relatively hard trapezoid. The style is a bit like a business portfolio. As a rule, it has a short comfortable handle and a long strap.
7. Going through the list to more miniature models, first of all we will touch the clutch. A small, flat, rectangular evening bag should be in every woman’s closet.
8. Along with the clutch, in recent years, another miniature model – the box bag-has become widespread. The main distinctive feature of this handbag is used in the creation of extremely hard, hard materials. And the opening system of this accessory resembles a case.
Here, perhaps, are all the main types of bags that every woman needs to get acquainted with.
Correctly selected bag = stylish practical idea
We got acquainted with the theory. Now it’s time to move on to practice. Remember a simple rule: “In order not to give yourself away to people for laughing, do not choose a bag hastily.” After all, the bag should be your companion for every day. Before you go to the store, you must strictly determine: what do you need a handbag for?
The following characteristics of your future purchase follow from the “for what” criterion:

* Large or small;
* Hard or soft;
* Daily or on the way out.
If you are looking for a handbag for every day, then of course, practicality and functionality are important here. This model should be easy to fasten and unfasten, have a sufficient number of compartments and pockets, as well as convenient handles. In addition, be sure to look at the color. Don’t choose bags in shades that you can’t match with most of your wardrobe items. Even if your favorite model is super fashionable, stylish, and generally the only one in the universe.
When choosing a casual handbag, you should also not focus on the color and material of the shoes. Of course, this is convenient. But if you follow the latest fashion trends-old as the world. Shoes and a bag just need to be combined in shades and intertwined in style. And, of course, the bag must necessarily fit into a woman’s wardrobe, combined with most clothes.
Now let’s pay attention to the size and shape of the handbag.
1. Size
The rule of bag size is that it must match the size of the body. A small slender girl will not look very appropriate in the hands of a massive “block”. On the contrary, women with shapes should not choose miniature accessories.
2. Form
The bag shape rule is inversely proportional to the size rule. Slender and tall women should choose bags that are elongated in width and slightly bulky. Plump women will fit accessories only elongated and flat shape.
Now you can definitely go to the store. We have no doubt that you will find the most correct and practical bag for yourself.
