Handbags are a closet staple that every woman has and they are a great way to add some character to a look or an outfit. Bags are fun and it’s had to find a boring one. There are different types of bags that come in different shapes and sizes and have different uses. Yes, the general use of a bag is to carry your belongings but when it comes to fashion a handbag means and does so much more. It is a fashion statement and goes a long way in determining someone’s style. There are different styles of bags like the tote bag, the clutches, the Mini Clutches, the cross body bag, and the backpack etc. New styles are coming into the market every day along with new and improved ways of styling them. There are many colorful bags but for most, it is difficult to wear a color every day, so you will inevitably resort to a black, brown or nude everyday bag — we all do. However every now and then it’s fun to buy a unique bag to carry on weekends or for fun once in a while occasions like weddings. Mini Clutches are an example of a bag that you can buy in a fun color for special occasions.
The Crossbody Bag
The cross body bags are the “everyday” handbag that you’re most likely to wear most, so while it may feel boring — it has to go with everything — make it special. Let this bag be the one you spend the most on. Go for luxury if you can afford it but don’t stress if you can. Hermès is obviously the ultimate choice, but perhaps not the most realistic as it is very expensive. Look for a bag by your favorite designer or brand and make sure it’s not an “it” bag… one that you’ve seen in every magazine or on the arms of all of your girlfriends. You want it to last, not look dated in a year’s time. You also need to make sure it is big enough to hold all your stuff and has a shoulder strap. Being dominated by your handbag isn’t chic, but being able to maneuver your way through the day with both hands definitely is.
If you only need a few essential items to get you through your day, then I recommend a mini clutch. With mini clutches, you don’t have to deal with aching shoulders as all you have to do is hold it in your arms or put it under your arm for a stylish look any time of the day. Nena and Co offers mini clutches that are unique and stylish and sourced from sustainable materials. The mini clutches are constructed using newly loomed artisan fabrics, custom created on a small-batch scale, ensuring attention to detail and quality of the highest standard. They are also handmade with intricate design details such as Genuine leather wristlet strap, Handwoven, artisan fabric body (varies in pattern), 100% cotton lining, Metal hardware, and Zip closure.
If you’re the type of girl who has tons of stuff to tote around but doesn’t want anyone to know it, this bag is for you. The bucket bag is a deceptively roomy bag. It can take all your stuff and still look small on your arm. This is another bag you should get in a neutral color that can go with any outfit except you’re feeling particularly adventurous. The bucket bag is also a good option of bag to have when you’re traveling because of how spacious it is.
Tote Bag The tote is the best option if you like to throw everything thing in your bag and go. This style is also ideal for traveling, as it will fit your electronics, magazines, cardigan—you name it! Tip: if you prefer a day-to-night bag, a tote bag might not be the best choice, but we think everyone needs one in their collection for work and travel.
