How to find “The One”
Tips on how to choose the right handbag
How many handbags does one need? Should we have “the one” that goes with everything? Or many handbags to go with different outfits and suitable for different occasions? Since the latter is something that goes against the idea of being more sustainable and less cluttered with stuff, let’s talk about that one right handbag that is practical as well as a top accessory that gives a final touch to our whole outfit. So how to find this perfect handbag?
What do you need it for?
One of the first steps before buying a handbag is to think about what you are going to use it for. Where are you going to go with it? Should it be a simple bag for work or your studies? Or maybe it should look smart for it to go perfectly with your classic office suit?
Find the right model
After you know what you are going to use it for, think about the more practical side. How are you going to carry your bag? Would you like to have it on a short handle in your hand or have a long strap so that you could have it on your shoulder? Maybe you prefer to carry your handbag like a backpack?
The essence of a handbag – material
One of the most important things to keep in mind when you are looking for a long-lasting handbag is the material from which it is made. Leather handbags are thought to be the best in this case, but let’s not forget that buying leather goods is not the most sustainable choice. However, there is no situation without a possible way out. In this case – choose vegan leather, which is even better than the real thing. If you still don’t feel convinced, find all you need about it here.
Kudos to you if you manage to put your stuff into the smallest handbag. But if you are one of those people who have a luggage size bag and tries to remember what kind of spell Hermione used to fit all the things she needed into her tiny handbag, then you should think about the right size of your new bag. Also, don’t forget to take into consideration your height and how you are built.
The devil is in the details and.. in the colour
Details could represent both: practicality and a sense of style. Having multiple pockets and zippers could be a great addition as it will allow you to be more organized and separate your things. Make sure that these details would be a smart addition and not something that looks tacky and serves no purpose. Colour is one of the most important details here too. Your everyday handbag does not necessarily mean that it should be black, brown or blue, or any earthy colour. Maybe a “fun” handbag is the addition you need to brighten up your wardrobe?
Who made my handbag?
No matter how perfect the handbag you just found is, don’t forget to check the brand. And no, not because of how famous or expensive the label is. Make sure that you are buying from responsible brands who not only care about the profit and fame but also about how their products are being produced. Look for information such as how they commit to being sustainable, do they care about fairness towards their workers? If so, then you found what you were looking for. Congratulations!
