A handbag is not only a great way to tie your look together, it is also a fashion statement that reveals much more about you than just your style preferences. Next time you grab for your handbag pay attention to how you’re holding it – everyone else will be!
If you wear your handbag over your shoulder you live a hands free, on the go kind of lifestyle and need life’s accessories at your fingertips at all times whilst you multitask your way through business meetings, ladies lunches and after-hour bashes. You are more likely to go with an oversized style so that you can take your world with you wherever you go but that doesn’t mean your handbag is only a workhorse. You will demand form as well as function – after all you can do both – and will be confident to pull both of them off whilst balancing your coffee in your hand and hailing a cab.
If you can pull off carrying your handbag in the crook of your arm then you have got some serious royal style and elegance lady! Not everyone can balance their designer goods on the arm and still sashay through life without breaking a sweat. If this is your favored carrying style then you probably go for a medium sized, elegant and effortlessly stylish bag that can carry a few essential items such as your theatre programme but is definitely more of a style statement that reflects the inner calm and class of its wearer.
Outback and personal
If you are one of the many fashionistas that are harking back to their youth and sporting backpacks and shoulder bags this season then you are probably fun, flirty and adventurous and you’ve probably opted for something quirky cool to reflect this side of your personality. It just makes a lot of common sense to have your goods securely fastened around back so you can have your front clear and open to face the world. Whether you’re meeting and greeting friends with a warm hug or setting out for a 5-mile trek you are prepared for anything. It also demonstrate a level of trust and confidence and you are probably more likely to be an optimist than someone who wears their bag firmly up front.
Wearing your bag across and close to your body on the other hand quietly announces that you might be a bit shy and nervous and prefer not only to keep your things close to your chest but keep other people at a distance. It could be a personality trait or perhaps just a reflection of a really bad day. Bags that are designed to be worn across the body tend to be practical and understated so that they don’t call attention to the wearer who quite frankly would just like to be left alone to get on with her day!
The clutch bag is the ultimate celebrity icon and is for the show off in us all because honestly they are not much use for anything other than saying ‘hey look at me’ and ‘I have someone else to carry my stuff for me’! If you hanker for hand bags you are likely to be a socialite and choose statement styles to add sparkle to your nightlife. Clutch bags are the TV reality star of women’s handbags that you either love or hate!
If you always grab for a bag that fits snuggly in your hand you probably aren’t too worried about the demands of the day either or getting anywhere very quickly for that matter because negotiating your life with just the one hand is not for the feint hearted.
Control freak chic
The ultimate in handbag efficiency is the microbag that barely has room for your lipstick and mobile phone. These are for women who really have life under control and wouldn’t even consider the detritus most of us drag around with us just in case. They are also really easy to misplace so if you manage to keep hold of your microbag it probably means you are pretty well organised too with everything you need at the touch of a button – mobile phone only though as there is no room for anything else!
With cute looks and adorable tiny styling they reveal that beneath the scheduling and leadership there is a little girl just dying to express herself.
