There’s no denying that you need your purse to carry your important items, but this staple of women’s accessories should also be on-trend.

Individual Style

Every woman has a unique style that serves as a wardrobe foundation. Consider individual style before making a handbag purchase to pick the best size, shape, and design in a purse that pulls the whole look together. Not every handbag will go with every outfit for every occasion. There may be times when a slouch bag is a go-to choice. Other times, a clutch or a trendy camera bag might be better options. We always encourage women to consider favorite colors and preferred size for handbags to help narrow the selection of these women’s accessories.

A Bag Can Enhance

We enjoy helping women discover their best assets and learning how to enhance them. A handbag can be a great addition to help women compliment certain features. For example, if you have a fuller figure, choose a purse that stops at your clothing waistline, because this can help accentuate your waist. Similarly, women with narrow hips can create a fuller silhouette with a longer handbag that stops at the hips.

A Word About Function

As stylish as purses are, they mainly function as a carrier for everything on the go. The type and size of handbag you need depends on what you carry in it. If you’re a lipstick-and-credit-card type of girl, then a mini cross-body or drawstring purse is ideal. If you bring everything with you every day, then a roomy tote or satchel is a better choice. We always recommend checking out the interior space of any purse, because pockets, zippers, and slides make any bag better.

A bag is an extension of your style, so choose ones that pair well with other women’s accessories!
