4 Types of Popular Hand-bags you May Buy This Valentine’s Day
Valentine’s Day is round the corner and so is the confusion regarding what you should gift to your lady love. But, fret no more. Just buy a hand-bag for her and in all probability, she is going to love it. Why? Because a hand-bag isn’t just a big purse where a woman keeps her money and other things she might need while being on the move, but also an essential fashion accessory which helps accentuate her style statement. Further, most women love to flaunt a collection of hand-bags, so even if she has these already, another one in the kitty won’t be a repeat-gift for her.
1. Baguette: Seen those bags in Sex and the City? Well! Those are the baguettes. Named after the French bread loaf, it is a handbag that is long and narrow in shape and has either a metallic or strappy handle on top. It is small in size, hence ideal for keeping essentials such as money, cards, cosmetics etc. These look better when teamed up with casual attire.
2. Satchel: These are medium to large-sized bags and can accommodate additional items along with the essentials. These bags have double handles or straps, a locking hardware and a flat, wide bottom. Make sure that you don’t end up buying a bag with too much metal work in the name of locks and handles. Further, buy a bag according to height. For example, do not buy a bag too large for someone with a petite body frame. She has to use the bag to keep her belongings and it shouldn’t look like she could get in it.
3. Tote: Also known as Shopper, a tote bag has a single opening and two handles. It is a perfect choice if your lady believes in carrying almost everything around, for example, water-bottle, books, umbrella etc. Even the bigger versions of this bag look chic and stylish and not like a sack made using superior quality material and other embellishments. Though, there are smaller sizes of the same available in the market and is a good choice for women who carry a limited number of items in their bags.
4. Clutch: As explained on Brunettediaries.com, “this cute little bag is perfect to carry a few items to a lavish dinner party; just the essentials like your phone, lipstick, money or credit cards. Generally, a clutch is studded with eye-catching rhinestone crystals or beads that add a touch of sophistication to your party look. You can also go for a solid-coloured, leather day clutch to keep your look simple yet trendy. Pair a beaded clutch with embellished anarkalis, vibrant saris, A-line dresses or evening gowns for a stylish look.”
Few other types of handbags for women you may buy include hobo bag, backpacks, duffel bags, cross-body etc.
