5 Must Have Types Of Bags For Every Girl
Having good clothes is not enough for style conscious girls! They also need stylish accessories to compliment their look and attire. And one of the most basic ways to stylize or jazz up a particular outfit is to pair it up with the right kind of bag. Here are some bags that every girl must invest in.
1. Sequined Clutch
This is the best accessory to match up with all your LBDs and other kinds of dinner, prom or formal dresses. Whether you have a plain satin or silk dress, a basic white tube top over an A-line black skirt, this kind of clutch completes your club or party attire. Ideally settle for metallic colors, such as gold, silver, copper, bronze etc. so that they add bling to your attire irrespective of your outfit’s color. It is also easier to match metallic colored bags with metallic colored shoes, to complete the look in a harmonized way.
Do remember that these are small in nature, which means that they are meant for carrying very basic things such as keys, credit/ debit cards, a small eye pencil, maybe your phone, and other very small things. Hence, you can’t carry them on occasions where you need more stuff with you.
2. A Basic Tote
This is important to accompany you on all your shopping trips, and random daily usage. It is best paired with t-shirt and jeans, but can also be used with free-flowing summery dresses, depending on the color and size. Settle for a bright colored one, such as yellow, orange, red, pink etc. to add a definite solid color touch to your attire. It gives funk to your outfit, rather than elegance that a clutch might offer.
Usually, tote bags are made out of very easily washable cloth, which means that they can be re-used quite well. They might not suit the requirements of those who want to carry too many heavy things, or else it might hurt the shoulders. But they are quite spacious in nature, and will carry bigger items.
3. Sling Bag
These are extremely popular these days, and can easily be paired up with almost every kind of outfit. There are small ones, which are perfect to compliment your causal or club clothing, and then there are slightly bigger ones that can be used to carry to college or work, depending on the color and style of the bag.
Again, they are not very big, so one must definitely make note of what all they are carrying, when choosing the bag.
4. Satchel/ Messenger Bag
These are of various types. Usually having a long strap, one wears them as slung from one shoulder, or across the body. The cloth ones are good for college going students, and can carry a lot of items, such as notes, basic stationery, wallets etc. The leather ones these days are inspired from the briefcase style of design, which means that they are perfect to go with office attire.
Try and get these with broader straps, so that they don’t add too much pressure and weight on your shoulder, and can be carried comfortably when you have a lot of things in your bag.
5. Hobo bag
This is the most common type of bag that you must have seen every woman carrying. Available in various colors, designs and patterns, these can be used to carry to office, as well as for basic daily use. Since this bag is quite versatile in its nature, it can be paired with formal, semi-formal or casual attires equally well. Most of the times, these bags are made out of leather; however, latest designs make use of other materials too to make Hobo bags.
One of the things that a girl must realize is that the primary purpose of a bag is for you to keep your things inside it, depending on where you are going, and for how long you are going. You need to look at comfort and practicality of the bag first. Just like you can’t take a Hobo for travel and will need a Duffle for the same, you can’t take a clutch to office where you need to carry files and papers etc. Choose your bags wisely, and select colors that are neutral, so that they can match with most of your outfits.
