Are you shopping around for the perfect handbag? How can you narrow down your selections when there are so many fabulous designer handbags to choose from? Read on to find ways to follow your own personal cues to the perfect purse you seek.
The first consideration when shopping for designer handbags is how you intend to use the purse. Will it be a real fashion accessory or one you use every day for utility purposes? If you're looking for a fashion accessory, consider a crossbody bag or clutch that is small and complements your wardrobe. Great crossbody purses are available by COACH, Calvin Klein and more.
For a utility purse, you have many options. Look at the strap size and length. Determine how comfortable it will be when loaded on your shoulder and where it will fall along your side. A satchel style with a wide strap is comfortable, even when it is full of stuff and strapped behind you while you carry other things. Find excellent satchel styles by Dooney & Bourke, MICHAEL Michael Kors and many others.
Top handles are stylish and many are very versatile. Top handle purses are easy to drape over your arm when carrying other things, and can easily be grabbed in your hand when you're in a crowded area. It's important that the top handle purse closes securely, but also opens easily with one hand. Think about whether you prefer buckles, flaps or zippers to close your handbag.
Pockets and compartments are handy for organizing your things and keeping your items separated. Satchels and hobo bags are available with lots of pockets and compartments for makeup, work items, things to keep kids pacified and other essentials. Find great hobos by Giani Bernini, Lauren by Ralph Lauren and others.
Also consider whether you prefer fabric or leather designer handbags. Fabric comes in many different colors and is easy to clean. Leather comes in many easy-to-match basic shades and is a durable material for handbags. If you like to change looks frequently, fabric might be your best choice. If you want a bag that matches everything and lasts a long time, consider leather.
