A purse is not only an important fashion accessory, but a necessary status symbol. Every woman would buy a different purse for every outfit if she could afford the space and money. And those who are not so obsessed aim at picking a model that would go with a majority of their outfits. Here are some easy pointers to picking up the correct shape, size and color of purse.
Survey your current handbag to decide on the essential items that you cannot do without. You will find that most of those items are unnecessary. Buying a tote bag is a good option as it will allow you to carry items like books, lunch boxes, umbrella very comfortably. Buying a small-sized bag will ensure that you don’t stuff it unnecessarily, thereby making it easier for you to find things.
Body Type Is A Factor
The size of your purse should accentuate your figure. Petite women should choose smaller purses, while thin women should buy bags that are waist-length to look slightly more curvaceous. Ensure that the size you choose accentuates your figure and frame and does not look out of proportion.
Choose the color and pattern correctly
Neutral shades like black, beige, navy suit any and every wardrobe. Choose the color of your purse according top the shade that dominates your wardrobe. If you wear black frequently, then a purse in a deep red shade would suit your outfit. Basket designs and hound’s tooth patterns work best but floral designs paired with monochromatic outfits look equally good.
Choose the material carefully
While leather is the obvious choice for most women, fabric purses in leather accents look equally classy. All-season straw purses are difficult to find but those in tighter weaves look equally good. Try to buy a purse that can be washed easily without showing signs of aging.
Branded purses are always an attraction, but by doing a little survey, you can make a purchase that is both reasonably priced, and equally sturdy. Its not smart to buy a costly purse which you will not be able to use at all.
