Handbags are essential fashion accessories for every woman. They play a significant role in emphasizing one’s best features and also hide imperfections. Just like our individual style preference highlights in our choice of dresses, jewelry, shoes etc., it comes out in our bags too. Here’s how:
Tall & Thin Women
You’re perfect for any handbag style, except the too small bags, which might make you look even taller. Stick to medium or large size totes, knapsacks, backpacks and elegant clutches (preferably broad in width) in colorful bags with bright patterns and prints.
Petite & Small Women
Small girls with a cute body frame should opt for cute and small bags with plain, monochrome options. For instance, over the shoulder bags, with a long strap and small frame are perfect for you. In case you have small bust and want to make it look fuller, you can try short-handled bags or clutches. But, big bags are a strict NO, as they tend to make you look shorter than your actually are.
Pear shape women
Often, women with a heavy bottom tend to take bags that go down their midriff; please DON NOT as it only tends to make you look wider! Instead, try and take the attention away from your lower part of the body to your upper body with a medium size bright and colourful shoulder bag. Let the straps of the bag be short enough to rest right under your arm.
Apple shape women
Skip the idea of pairing small handbags with much shorter handles. You need to take the attention away from your top to the lower part of the body. Hence, go for bags with longer handles, over the shoulder bags. Although, over the arm bags like Hermes Birkin will suit you just about right too.
Straight shape women
Women with too angular and athletic body shape should stay away from similar styles of handbags. Narrow and angular bags, including rectangular clutches, will give roughness and simplicity to your figure. It’s better to opt for plump, rounded bags in the form of backpacks with some interesting details, such as embroidery or studs on the straps or handles.
