Truth be told, every woman only needs six bags to get through life. There’s no sense in not keeping it minimal! Here are the recommended bags so that anyone can get organized and evaluate their stash. This will help keep one handbag for each and every occasion.
Structured Day Tote – This handbag is so versatile that it’s a must for every wardrobe. Being structured it can function as a go to work bag, and still keep that professional look.
Quirky Handbag – By quirky, we mean out-of-the norm. Something with a fun shape like lips or a triangle. It will set the wearer apart from the crowd and is perfect for going out to eat with a group of friends, to a concert, or an art show. It’s that one that shows her personality with ease. Everyone needs that handbag!
Color block – A color block handbag is perfect because sometimes one will have an outfit that they just don’t know which will go with it. The color block will almost always work, relieving the stress of having to choose, especially when she’s in a hurry!
Just for fun – We all know this handbag, it’s the one that speaks to us as we walk past the display window. It says, “Look at me, I am unique and made just for you!” Well it’s okay to get just ONE bag for fun, but it should be able to go anywhere and be utterly versatile. That’s the only requirements here!
Hobo bag – The Hobo handbag is for a person’s “day off.” This slouchy comfortable bag can handle anything one may need for a day of adventure. Just pack it all in there and still look chic no matter where the adventure leads.
Clutch – The clutch is an essential handbag for formal events. Let’s face it, there will probably be at least one wedding each summer that one is invited to. Then there are anniversaries and special nights out. The clutch will be there waiting for those moments.
With all these handbags, it’s important to choose neutral colors, aside from the “Just for Fun” handbag. This way they will go with virtually any outfit. Colors like black, brown, navy and camel are great choices and it’s a good idea to not choose the same for each.
Aside from type of bag and color there are other rules about how the bag should fit, size and more. Some of these factors are dependent upon the wearer’s body type. There are plenty of guides online that can help guide one to the right choice. Honestly, the staff in whatever store one is purchasing from should know and be willing to help.
Remember, a handbag is an investment piece. The old adage is true that one gets what they pay for. To have these bags stand the test of time and allow for future use it’s smart to go with brand names and not worry about pinching pennies. Otherwise, the extensive replacements will have the wearer back to step one, where they have a myriad of handbags just sitting in the closet – broken, worn and unusable.
