Tips on Picking the Perfect Handbag

You have the perfect outfit, makeup, hair, jewellery, and shoes all ready for the wedding, party, dinner, or a get-together you’re going to. But do you have that perfect bag to match your outfit? What are some of the things you should consider when picking a handbag that compliments your outfit?

Here are some tips to pick out that perfect handbag.

Consider the event - Think about the event you’re going to. If it’s a formal party, small bags and clutches are more appropriate. Also consider what you want to be carrying in your handbag. Don’t have it too small that even your cell phone won’t fit but also don’t have it big enough that a six months old baby would fit in it.

Put on your entire outfit before deciding the colour - People often decide on the dominant colour of the outfit for their handbag be it a clutch, tote, satchels, hobos, or shoulder bags. Try on the entire outfit before buying or deciding on a handbag that way if there is a subdued colour in your outfit, matching your handbag to that colour will enhance the barely noticeable colour in your outfit. Also you will be able to decide if something contrasting would go better with the outfit.

Consider the material - For the evening, silk and chiffon materials look more elegant. Also, handbags with metallic materials or covered in crystal or with a hint of crystals add a touch of glamour. In the summer, thin fabrics are ideal whereas, in the winter heavier leather or thicker material bags are in style.

Choose the right shape of the bag - Hobos, or slouchy bags give you a casual, relaxed, and spontaneous look. Totes, satchels, clutches, and other boxy bags are suited for business attire or formal event as they give you a professional, elegant, and stylish look.

Pick a right size for your body type - Handbags should compliment your body type. Handbags of all types come in different shapes and sizes, pick the one that suits your body and height. For example, a petite person should pick a clutch that is small to medium in size whereas a taller person can even sport a bigger and larger clutch
