4 Useful Tips to Choose Just the Right Handbag

waist-length bag by TJSourceIf your dress, jewelry and shoes are perfect, but you aren’t wearing a perfect bag, you are sure to make a fashion blunder. The right handbag not only flatters your figure but completes your look. You may want to wear your handbag everyday for months, and so it is imperative that you choose the right one. Here are 4 easy points to consider while choosing the right kind of handbag for you.

1. Length

You just have to remember an easy rule while choosing your bag’s length – the part of your body where your bag’s bottom will reach will be accentuated. Thus if you have small boyish hips, you should choose a hip length of bag so that your hips will look more feminine. But if you have got big hips, consider a waist-length bag so that the tapering of your waist will be accentuated making you look slimmer. Actually, waist-length bags will flatter most shapes; hence, it’s recommended that you have bags of this length always in your wardrobe.

2. Size

Choose the size according to your own. It’s obvious that if you are tall (and/or big) a small bag will get lost on you, while if you are petite, a large or oversized bag will swamp you.

3. Shape

You should choose your bag’s shape too according to your own. However, you have to do this opposite, i.e. if you are slim and tall, choose a round and slouchy bag, whereas if you are short and curvy, bags with sharp angles will look fantastic on you.

4. Style

The handbag’s style too should be chosen according to your own style. E.g. if you wear casual clothes, wearing a very formal handbag is not a good idea. Choosing the style of handbag can be a bit tricky. Here researching a little may be helpful. Look through fashion magazines to find models wearing clothes of similar style as of yours and note what kind of handbag they are shown with. The particular handbag the model wears may not be of your liking, but you should note its style, and think about whether you can get it in a different material or color, or in a different size. An important thing is to note the style, whether it’s a tote, a slouch shoulder bag or a clutch.

If though casual is your everyday style, but if you will be wearing a particular style for a special occasion, be sure to explore the magazine to find a handbag to suit that particular style. For a special occasion, art handbags, dresses, jewelry, neckties & home goods are always perfect so as to get a complete look.

Following these tips will help you to get your hands on just the right handbag. Happy shopping!
