It’s easy to become a collector of handbags. When there are so many colors, sizes, and patterns to choose from, how can we resist? Plus, different types of handbags have several different uses.
What handbag should I buy?
1. Everyday Purse
The backpack, tote, or tote bag should be part of everyone’s fall wardrobe. For the everyday bag, we suggest something plain and practical, like a weekend backpack or messenger bag. These are great for bringing your laptop to the office or to just toss on the couch.
2. Accessory Bag
Accessories, such as scarves, necklaces, rings, and other jewelry, can be stored in a variety of small, decorative handbags, such as the cherry red backpack in the image above.
3. Get It Cheap
If you are not in a big rush to replace your current handbag, consider a no-frills basic. They look great with jeans and sneakers and are extremely easy to carry around. Check out some great options below.
4.The Handbag that Does it All
While a small crossbody bag is perfect for running errands or toting your essentials, a designer designer handbag is worth the splurge. It can help you transition into a new season and it’s the one thing everyone wants to have on hand for a big event. The big bags of 2017 offer a variety of features and storage spaces, and are fashion-forward for the current seasons. Some are even available in multiple colors and styles.
A refined red patent leather satchel is one of the most iconic handbags in the world, thanks to Coco Chanel. Her signature style and its strong influence is still the mainstay of today’s fashion. So if you’re looking to update a handbag with a classic but upgraded appearance, you should consider this Chanel Lanvin bag in the color Cashmere Noir.
The Classic Black Bag
I’ll admit, I’ve collected quite a few classic black handbags over the years, mostly for use on workdays when I want to look more professional. However, black and gray have been an extremely popular color combination over the past few years. If you are not a fan of a strong color, consider opting for a neutral shade like red or yellow, which may work just as well.
Add Some Color to Your Look
I tend to gravitate toward bold colors for summer and simple neutral hues for fall. I especially like to keep my hands free by wearing two tote bags at a time. The more color I have, the more people can easily spot me if I am walking around. By mixing and matching, I can also get two totally different looks with each tote.
The Trendy Bag for Fashionistas
These are the handbags that are considered trendy and the perfect picks for fashionistas, especially those who like to make a statement. The trendy handbags are usually shoulder bags. They have stylish features that complement the trendiest looks in fashion.
These bags are designed for people who want to flaunt their style. You can pair them with skinny jeans and rock a flirty mini dress and high heels. They are also a perfect choice for beach and pool parties.
The Cheap to Good-Looking Handbag for Parties
If you don’t want to spend a lot of money on your handbag, you can get a cute handbag that looks good but has an inexpensive price. These handbags are perfect for smaller budgets. The handbag is usually made from leather, and it comes in different colors and patterns.
The Golden Bag for the Golden Girl
There are several different types of bags and each are suited to a particular style. For example, a duffel bag is perfect for bringing your gym clothes to the gym or flying with a workout bag. If you travel with a lot of makeup and clothes, you’ll need tote bags.
But if you’re looking for a bag that’s very functional, you might want to look into a clutch, a cross-body bag, or even a briefcase.
The two biggest trends for fall handbags are big, plaid, and statement accessories.
Big, trendy bags are for girls with lots of energy and friends that aren’t afraid to travel. This is especially true for the Golden Girls who don’t stop on the way to the Golden Palace for that quick pit stop at the bakery.
The Trending Bag for the Trendsetter
You need a fun and functional bag to take with you everywhere you go. A backpack is always a good option but why not pick up a messenger bag? It’s the perfect carry-all for classes, a quick trip to the store, or a fun night out on the town.
The Classic Bag for the Artist
Artists are usually inspired by nature. They love organic designs and patterns with earthy tones, and wooden materials. A leather handbag is a good choice for artists because it’s durable and full of personality.
The Work Bag for the Worker Bee
You want a solid, good-looking bag that is simple but functional. Look for one that has some vintage feel and a vintage zipper or design to it.
The Classic Bag for the Fashionista
For the most fashion-forward woman, you want something as stylish as she is.
The Tote Bag
Everyone needs a cross body bag, but you can use your handbag for carrying cash, cards, and other things that you would like to hide. It doesn’t take up a ton of room, but can be a lot of fun to carry. This is a versatile bag that’s usually colorful, large, and easy to carry.
The Chanel Saddle Bag
Chanel is known for being the most expensive handbag company in the world. They’ve developed a number of bags that you would consider “crunchy” but that make it difficult to afford these fancy bags. Chanel handbags are like diamonds — you only get one, so cherish it.
The Shoulder Bag
If you’re looking to go for a more sophisticated look, you should try to shop for a stylish (and nice looking) shoulder bag.
The Hobo Bag
If you’re trying to find your new favorite handbag, this is a great one to try. This style of bag, in particular, is perfect for traveling. The Hobo bag is large enough for most of your day-to-day belongings, but not so large that you can’t carry it in both hands. And it’s incredibly lightweight, meaning you can easily lug it in your bag without it weighing you down. Because of this, you can also wear it all day without it being cumbersome.
