5 Handbag Shapes Every Woman Needs in Her Wardrobe

Handbags are my favourite type of accessory because they are like an extension of my body. They have the power to take a plain outfit to a whole new style level. I love having handbags in different shapes for different occasions. My handbags are usually quite large because I like to put all sorts inside them. There are 5 handbag shapes every woman needs in her wardrobe. These handbag shapes are very common, and I am sure you would have come across them if you don’t already have them in your bag collection.

Clutch

For those who don’t know, clutches were invented in the 1920s and have been a fashion hit ever since. I have a few clutches. They are great for special events. I don’t carry them much because they are impractical for everyday use but they do look pretty for occasions when I do need them.

Tote

Tote bags are usually large and flat with an open top and zippered pockets inside. They are my favourite sort of bags because they come in the right size. I like my bags large.

Baguette

This shape is named after the French loaf of bread because of the similarity in the shapes. Baguette bags have short straps and are worn tucked under the arm. They are super stylish. I have had a DKNY baguette bag for years now and I am still so very in love with it. For those who are not sure of what a Baguette bag looks like, here is an example below.

Minaudière

A Minaudière is a clutch bag without handles or straps. It is the combination of a purse and an evening bag. The name comes from the French ‘minauder’ which means ‘to simper’.

Hobo

Hobo bags are also my favourites. I love them because they are oversized soft leather bags in a curved crescent shape with a shoulder strap. Many of my bags are in Hobo shapes.

The Beauty of a Leather Bag

If you know me well enough, and you have been reading Fashion and Style Police for some time, you would know all about my love for stunning leather bags, and how I keep growing my leather bag collection. I have a thing for leather bags. I love the way they smell and look. I can never say no to a quality handbag.

I think every woman should have a few quality leather bags in her wardrobe. A stunning bag has the power to change any look, and take it from level 0 to a level 100, so they are definitely worth investing in.

If I had £100 to invest in my wardrobe, the first thing I would definitely think of getting is a new hand bag. I love my pieces, watches, shoes and stuff, but I have a special place in my heart for handbags. I have always had and always will.

And being a mini shopaholic, I have been on the lookout for some quality leather bags to grab this spring/summer season. In my pursuit, I came across Betty Hemmings some days ago, and I fallen in love with stunning their leather goods. For those who have not heard of this brand, it is a premier specialty retailer for Business, Travel and Luxury leather goods. It was founded in 1978, and offers a sophisticated range of luxuriously crafted briefcases, business accessories, luggage and leather goods.

They stock very quality handbags, I felt very at home on their website. There were so many bags I likes but these 2 below caught my eye instantly.

5 Fashion Hacks for Handbags

Handbags are my favourite accessories. I see them as an easy way to add some ‘wow’ into any outfit, so I take my time buying them. I have quite a few handbags and I am in the pursuit of adding a few more to my bag collection, which inspired this post. When you go for quality over quantity, your handbags serve you longer, and you can even make some money off them if you plan to sell them off at some point. I have sold a few designers bags on eBay and I made some cool cash off them so I know.

Here are some fashion hacks for you to have in mind when it comes to buying and using your handbags:

 

A Classic Bag

If you can afford to, have at least 1 classic designer bag, preferably in black. It is smarter to go for a classic style that will stand the test of time, and still be in vogue 10 years later.

 

On-the-go Bags

Since becoming  mum, I have fallen in love with on-the-go bags, also known as satchel or messenger bags. They are the best fashion inventions ever! I can have my bag and have my hands free. They are great for busy mums, students and travellers. You should have at least 1 of these. I have quite a few and I am in the pursuit of others.

 

Clutch Chic

Clutch bags are ideal for dinners, wedding and formal events. They have the power to add instant glamour to your outfit so they are definitely worth having. I was slow on the clutch chic collection, but I am happy to have a few clutches now. I will probably be adding some more at some point, bank balance permitting.

Go for Light Bags

It amazes me the amount of cheap heavy bags designers churn out every season. I always check the weight of a bag before carrying. Bags that come naturally heavy will be a lot heavier once you have your junk in it. This added weight can cause strains, damage posture, and trigger back and shoulder pain.

 

Care for your Bags

Handle your handbags with tender, love and care. Make sure you do not squash them while storing. Opt to store your bags in drawstring cotton bags when not in use.
