How to “Bag” the Perfect Bag

Shopping for a new handbag can sometimes be a daunting task. However, it can and should be a fun and efficient experience. Follow these simple tips and tricks to ensure that you don’t waste hours searching for your ideal accessory. Here is how to bag the perfect bag!

First, shop a site that boasts a variety of brands. One stop shopping is always the way to go. You can browse the accessory selection and take advantage of promotions such as free shipping and returns, designer discounts, and one stop shopping allows for easy price comparisons of brands and styles. Plus, shopping online is much more time and energy efficient. Who wouldn’t want to get a new bag from the comfort of their own couch?

Next, consider the lifestyle that you lead. Are you always on the go? Do you often head out to dinner after your workday? Do you enjoy attending parties on the weekend or going on dinner dates? There is a bag for any and every occasion.

You should select a cross body bag if you lead an active lifestyle and especially if you are a mom. It allows you to wear its strap over your shoulder, enabling you to be hands free when grocery shopping or pushing a stroller; or can be worn around your wrist or carried using your hands when you are by yourself. Cross body bags are big enough to hold your everyday essentials, plus those little extras like snacks, lotions, technology devices, and books. Coach makes some perfect cross bodies, as does Christian Dior.

You should select a clutch if you are constantly out and about on weekends or for happy hour after work. They are easy to hold and accessorize any outfit fabulously. You can even carry your regular day to day bag and place your clutch neatly inside; only removing it when you enter a club or restaurant. Clutches can also be carried for special events like weddings, class reunions, or bridal showers; so if you have a lot of these events lined up, a clutch may be a wise investment. Cesare Paciotti and Sergio Rossi make luxurious and long lasting clutches that will complement any look!

You should select a Hobo if you fall somewhere in between a clutch and cross body. Hobos are medium in size and can be carried for work or for play. They are just large enough to hold everything you need without becoming a burden to carry. The brands, Tods and Prada, boast a large and stylish selection of this kind of everyday accessory.

Finally, if you are on a budget, and can only afford one bag; opt for something smooth, simple, and leather in a neutral tone like caramel, beige, or basic black. Red, navy, or green also works with a variety of colors and ensembles. This kind of bag will always be in style and will ensure a timely return on your investment.

Bagging the perfect bag can be fun and easy. Just remember, there is a perfect bag out there waiting for you, so go get it!
