Your handbag is more than just a fashion statement. It’s the perfect way to organize and carry daily essentials. But with so many shapes, sizes and styles, choosing the ideal everyday bag can be daunting.

1. Strap Style

Decide how you like to wear your handbag. Over the shoulder? Across the body? Clutch handles? Try on various styles to find your comfort zone. Because after all, if your handbag always slips off your shoulder, or the crossbody strap digs into your chest, it’s a deal breaker.

2. Size

Bigger isn’t always better. They say nature abhors a vacuum, and this is especially true when it comes to handbags. Trust us, no matter how big the bag is; you WILL fill it up. So decide what you want to carry first and then choose an appropriately sized handbag.

3. Pockets, pockets, pockets

There’s nothing more frustrating than not being able to find your keys, sunglasses or whatever else you know is in your handbag. Look for a handbag with plenty of organization built in. A combination of open and zippered pockets in various sizes is best.

4. Color and Style

Are you the type looking for a conservative handbag that blends in? Or are you looking for something that stands out? Decide how your handbag reflects your personal style. While neutral colors like grey, black and browns are safe options; bright colors and even metallics can work as an everyday bag too.

5. Quality

You carry your handbag every day. Choosing one made from high-quality materials and featuring solid craftsmanship will help it stand up to the rigors of daily use.
