The Clutch

A clutch bag is perfect for evening occasions and formal parties. It is relatively small in size and usually adorned with sparkling stones for a more dramatic look. There is no need to carry a lot of items during cocktail parties and evening affairs; the clutch is the perfect size for your mobile phone, keys and a little lipstick.

The Satchel

Gone are the days when satchel bags are often related to doctors since they often carry this type of handbag. Today’s designs for satchel bags are very modern and come in bright colors and different patterns. The satchel is the perfect day bag for women who are always on the go. It has more room for things such as books and laptops, making it ideal for teens and college students.

The Tote

Tote bags are a favorite summer staple. Women are fond of using tote bags because of its lightweight material for a weekend getaway or family picnic. Tote bags often do not have a zipper on the top, so it is easier to get and put thing inside without having to dig through the entire bag. Totes are perfect for those who carry a lot of stuff such as moms traveling with their children.

Handbags are great accessories that can spice up the look of a boring outfit. Women often invest on a bag that is made from quality materials because it is something that they can use for a long period of time.
