Practical for carrying your essentials and for styling your outfit, there are women's handbags of all shapes and sizes designed to suit every occasion. A special event, a new job or even the turn of the seasons are all good reasons to get a new handbag, and with plenty of fashionable and functional styles to choose from, there is a bag for every woman.
The handbag a woman picks can depend on factors such as size, occasion, and how she prefers to carry it. Among the popular styles are oversized totes, practical cross-body bags, backpacks, and elegant clutches.
A cross-body bag is an ideal choice for the woman who wants to be hands-free as they're easy to carry through the day. A metallic white gold leather cross-body bag by designer brand Fossil is ideal for the woman who wants an investment bag.
The bucket bag has become the key shape to be seen with and is loved for its roominess as well as its chic style. Vera Pelle bucket bags will provide a touch of Italian elegance and can be bought in stylish two-tone leather colours, or in plain leather, including bright red, fuchsia pink or black. This elegant bag has two handles and a cross-body strap and several handy pockets.
A clutch bag is the ultimate finishing touch to a glamorous outfit for an evening out or party, and are available made in various fabrics including satin, suede and patent leather. A shimmering gold diamante-encrusted clutch will make a statement and also has enough room to hold a purse, mobile phone, some makeup and keys.
Totes and shoppers are the ideal choice for the busy woman who needs to carry a lot, and second-hand or brand new totes by names, such as Ted Baker, Vivienne Westwood and Armani, can be found alongside affordable and versatile leather and floral designs.
