Handbags On The Go

Feb 7, 2008
These days, handbags are fashion statements. Besides your worn apparel that often mirrors who you are, handbags are used to express individuality, moods, status and personal style.

But other than fashion, women's handbags also make effective "holders" of their valued personal effects. Therefore, as your handbags should be stylish, it is crucial that they reflect functionality and propriety as well.

Anxious on looking decently chic for that job interview? Pick a functional bag or purse which is useful for storage for cell phones, pens and keys besides of course that preppy make-up kit. This is where smaller bags with pockets on the inside can work. Make sure everything is arranged and looks organized. Avoid jamming up everything in the handbag and looking like you're digging up your business card from a huge pile. Handbag closures like Velcro, zippers and magnetic flaps can prove essential to avoid the risk of your stuff falling out.

A tiny bag looks cute, but you can opt to use one with enough space for your resume without compromising style and comfort, of course. Remember though, that the bag you are carrying creates the illusion of adding or lessening your body weight! It's also wise to incorporate color coordination between your handbag and your attire or shoes. Talk about no-nonsense style!

Experts suggest using a leather handbag as it is most appropriate for a job interview. In the corporate world where formality should be considered, handbags made of cotton and nylon may be too casual. Neatness is priority; your handbags, not just those for the interview, should be spotless at all times!

Hired? Perfectly fitting for office work is an over-the-shoulder and ergonomically styled leather briefcase or handbag that offers comfort when carried.

Bag fanatics avow that for handbags or briefcases for the office, purchasing one that is bigger than what you need works. Find one with compartments that can be expanded where a cell phone, laptop and file folders should be stored. For extra items, storage in the outside part of the bag can come in handy!

Go for briefcases that are light to carry around, like micro fiber and canvas which are just as gorgeous. Durable and weatherproof handbags and briefcases can work well too!

With that interview and business work done, it is time to celebrate! Evening bags for a party or dinner should be complementary with your evening look. Think black, lacy dress with a perfectly matching tiny purse beaded with satin or lace-trimmed, jewel-encrusted, or made in silk, crochet, beaded, satin, velvet or sequins. A little patience to mix and match can dress you to the nines, at par with the glamorous Hollywood stars!

When you travel, the priority shifts to safety. Never compromise the vital safe keeping of your money, keys and travel documents. Ensure that the handbag has straps, buttons or zippered closures for security purposes. Again, a functional handbag doesn't have to be less trendy in any way!

Wherever you are headed or whatever needs to be done, make sure that your handbags suit your needs, but give in to your wants. After all, handbags have become irreplaceable necessities in a busy woman's world!
