Toss this question to any woman, and she throws back another question – ‘Can’t I have them all!’
Handbags look so adorable in the windows in the shops. They warm you up when you bring them down the racks; and while they sit at the cashier’s counter, you feel complete.
Diamonds and Chocolate may be a woman’s best friends, but a handbag is her soulmate. Wouldn’t it be amazing if we can just walk away with all of them?
It would be the happiest feeling like the world is all beautiful once again. But you know who wouldn’t be happy, your wallet! It brings us back to the subject of our post today:
What type of handbag should I buy?
Let’s get started and indulge in the secrets!
#The handbag shouldn’t be heavy: Don’t we carry enough cargo already? The weight of the handbag doesn’t need to add to that! They shouldn’t be very light either unless you’re playing Santa with his bag of toys. Also, the lightness might be an indicator of a low quality bag. Ensure the bag has a reasonable amount of weight to it for balance and durability. According to a USDA study, they have found that the ideal weight of a handbag should be no more than 2.2 pounds. In the same study, chiropractors say that your handbag should not exceed 10% of your body weight once loaded.

It shouldn’t be too expensive: An expensive handbag may be good to flaunt when you first buy it and will get you all the “O.M.G’s’ from your girlfriends, but what next?
The newness is over soon, and you are left with a hole in your pocket, and there’s already a new handbag on the rack which you cannot afford anymore. Our suggestion – invest in a high-quality leather handbag that is functional and not overly priced.
It shouldn’t be too trendy: Trends come and go, and a handbag is an accessory you cannot resist if you keep chasing trends. Find a style the suits you and stick with it, or don’t change it as often. Buy one that suits all seasons. Buy a classic every now and then.
#It should have at least two compartments: All you have in your handbag is –
your Kleenex, sunglasses, hand sanitizer, lipstick, your compact, mascara, a bunch of keys, your cell phone, a small bottle of perfume, some small eats, some receipts, a chequebook, your wallet with cash and credit and debit cards and membership cards, a small BPA free bottle of water!
That’s covers almost everything! So, yes the stuff needs to be compartmentalized and organized to be fully functional.
These are the features that your handbag must absolutely have. Next, think of how you are going to wear and use it.
How do you wear your handbag: What is your style? Do you carry it on your arm, on your shoulder, or do you wear it cross-body?
This question will determine the length of the handle your handbag should have. A cross-body bag allows freedom of movement, while the short handled one can be carried on your arm having a sophisticated appeal.
How do you use it: If you are a party person, a clutch is your best choice. Satchels are ideal; they are great for shopping, and for workplaces. They fit everyone’s need (and their style).
But hey, Hobos are great for airports and also when you have kids. Pick one that strikes a balance between your personality and your needs.
Every handbag out there is going to call out to you by name and whisper to you: Pick me, choose me, buy me! But ladies you got to do, what you need to do and pick the one that best suits you and your personality.
