Women’s bags for everyday are true allrounders. They must be able to carry half your belongings and provide each item immediately when needed. It also has to look stylish when carrying it from A to B. Women’s bags are an important women’s accessory and complete the overall look of their wearer. Definitely not an easy task! During the Middle Ages men and women kept their coins in small leather sachets and tied them to their clothing. During the 17th and 18th century men’s hunting bags were so beautiful that today they would serve easily as women’s bags. Nowadays handbags are exclusively a female preserve. Women love their bags and many of them are prepared to spend a small fortune to buy the handbag they desire. The favourite models are: A small clutch for the evening and a shopper or a shoulder bag for everyday life. Spacious models are pretty handy for the job and for shopping.
As the name says, women clutch their bag by hand or shift them under one arm. The clutch is an elegant women’s accessory for a chic dinner party or for a festive gala. Their delicate size reminds rather of a purse and their capacity is rather limited: Lipstick, mobile phone, credit card, keys, this is about all you can put inside. Since this filigree bag is frequently left somewhere by mistake and women like to sometimes have both hands free, models with a detachable strap were invented.
Shoppers and tote bags are both rectangular or square. They have two handles each, can be opened at the top and have magnets or zips to close them. This is what they have in common. The decisive difference is the strap length of these two models. While you can hang a spacious shopper over your shoulder, you have to carry the tote bag with its shorter straps in your hand or in the crook of your arm.
The shoulder carries the weight and you have your hands free – shoulder bags are the perfect solution for many women. They are offered in many different models. If you carry your notebook around with you, there is enough room for it in a messenger bag. Also there are cute hobo-bags, the crumpled pouch. Many women love body cross-bags, which they can simply hang over their shoulders. Surely, wallets must be able to carry money, ID cards and credit cards. But the old unspectacular wallets of the early days have turned into real trendsetters. The megalomania of the old days pays off as well: The more slots they have, the more important you are. Their inside is well organized and their outside is glittery. The wallets for women have become real works of art and look more and more like a clutch. The many different designs are anything but boring and offer wide range of different models.
