Women's Handbags Guide

Urban wear for women is a fashion category which offers everything the modern woman could be looking for – clothing, shoes, jewellery, sportswear, accessories and handbags. A woman can’t survive without a good bag – big, small or designer, a bag is an integral part of every woman’s daily outfit. It represents its wearer’s taste and individuality and it’s the ultimate fashion statement.

So how can a woman pick the right handbag? First of all, make sure the size and the shape of the bag compliments your body shape. Big and bulky handbags don’t look very well next to petite and skinny women. A shorter woman should pick a medium-sized bag with a short strap. Taller women can wear bags on long straps, clutches and tote bags.

Second of all, the colour of the bag is also important. It is an accessory, but it shouldn’t clash with the rest of your outfit. If you have a few bags, they should be in a wide range of colours – thus, you can create endless combinations. Make sure you buy a classic  handbag in black, because it goes well with everything. Popular choices for urban handbags include various prints, patterns, fur and unusual fabrics. A multicolored handbag is also a great addition to one’s wardrobe.

Third of all, consider the style and don’t stick just to one type of bag. The small bag, called a clutch, is perfect for nights out, date nights, parties, weddings and any other occasion where you can have fun and relax. It’s the ultimate evening bag, so make sure it represents you well in terms of material and colour. Urban clutch bags are all about studs, sparkling edges and unusual shapes.

One of the most popular styles is the shoulder bag – a bigger handbag with a shoulder strap which is the most versatile type and can be worn on a daily basis. The satchel bag, also called messenger bag, is an oversized type which is perfect for business women and those who travel a lot and need a bigger bag where they can fit everything they need.

One of the latest hits is the hobo bag – with its soft lining, fluid shape and deconstructed styling, it’s the perfect casual handbag. Another popular choice is the tote bag – usually large and worn around the elbow. It’s perfect for the summer, for shopping and going to the beach.

Designer bags are of course every modern woman’s dream. Produced in every style you could think of, the designer handbag is a piece of art and a big investment for every woman.
