Handbag. The Right Style That Suits

As we all known a handbag is an essential item for all women and it is becoming more difficult for us to choose the right one because of the amount of different styles and shapes now available. But it is important that when you are selecting a new handbag you look for one that suits your body type.

Whilst over size and large handbags are ideal for the tall and slim amongst us a smaller handbag can make you look even taller. There it is preferable that you select a small one and the most suitable kind for tall, thin women is either a clutch, over size or shoulder bag.

Whilst shorter women should be looking at small handbags at all times. A larger handbag can be overpowering and make them look even shorter and looking for a tight fitting short handbag which is held against the body will make them look taller.

However, if you one of the luck ones who is blessed with a curvaceous body then opt for a medium sized handbag which hangs just above your waist. Not only will it accentuate your waistline but it will make your body look even more flattering than it already is. Yet women who are of a plus size should avoid handbags with short straps and short handbags at all times, but carrying a larger, wider bag they are making themselves look smaller.

You will find that there are many classifications of handbags now available from the shoulder, to the hand held, to back packs, tote bags and the clutch. You will usually find that a should bag comes in a much larger size than most handbags and will always be worn over the shoulder. Not only do they come in a variation of shapes and sizes but they also provide you with more space inside as well as being very stylish at the same time.

However handle handbags which come with straps or handles are normally held in the hand and used as a fashion accessory only. They are often smaller in comparison to many other handbags. But if you are looking for something to use when out in the evening, say going to a party or a nightclub then a clutch handbag will probably be your best choice as they are small and need to be held in the hand at all times. Whilst the tote bag is specifically designed to be used for casual purposes, they usually come with one or two compartments which will provide you with enough space for all items you wish to put inside.

Then we come to back packs, the staid item of any student as they can carry their books with ease in one of these and because it has 2 straps which are placed on each shoulder the weight inside is balanced equally.

The handheld handbags, with straps or handles, are held only in the hand. Used for fashion purposes and for strolling, these handheld handbags are smaller compared to the other handbags. The tote bags are mainly used for casual purposes. With a simple color and one or two compartments, these tote handbags provide a lot of space. They are big bags and fall around the elbow, in the middle of the body.

But at the end of the day the type of handbag you use will depend completely on your own sense of style and taste and also when you will be using it or the place you will be taking it to. It is advisable to select a handbag that suits your mood and personality.
