Liu Wen, the famous supermodel, once said that the perfect, unique bag is not only eye-catching but also timeless- it can be passed on to future generations. Now, that’s a very agreeable statement. Whether you’re attending a wedding, going for a job interview, or partying the night away with friends, the bag you accessorise your outfit with should not only suit the occasion but also be practical. And of course, keep in mind that it should be able to hold all your belongings as well.
Finding the right bag that checks all the points turning into a tricky task? Fromsummer handbags to work totes, here’s our guide to picking the right bag for every occasion.
Office Or Corporate Use
Whether it’s a job interview you’re heading to or walking into office, an organised laptop satchel, structured tote, or a leather shoulder bag is the way to go. These are sophisticated, modern, and large enough to fit all your work essentials, including notepad, stationary, laptop, desk keys, and other paperwork, along with your makeup basics. There was a time when work bags came in subdued shades of black, tan, or cream. Today, however, you can choose from bright neon colours to pastel prints with rose gold hardware. So pick a stylish design that can elevate your style!
Parties And Events
When it comes to formal events such as cocktail parties, office parties, and weddings, the smaller the bag, the better. You’re only going for a few hours, so you don’t need to look like you’re carrying the world with you. Opt for trendy clutches or sling bags with unique designs and prints that will complement your outfit and make it pop. Metallic, embellished, embroidered, printed, and satin all work here. So don’t hold back your instincts; this where you can carry that statement bag you’ve always fancied.
Girls Night Out
This one depends on where you’re headed. If you’re going for a casual dinner, pretty much any bag that can hold your wallet and lipstick works. Bring out a snazzy embellished handbag or a quirky summer purse and sip on some wine with the ladies. However, if you and your girls solemnly swear that you’re up to no good, it’s better to carry a sling bag or bucket bag. These will not only fit your phone, wallet, and cosmetics but will also be easy to sling around your body and leave your hands free.
Day By The Beach
We all need a regular dose of vitamin sea, and a large jute tote is your answer to pack all your needs in. An oversized bag makes it easy for you to carry along all your bulky items like a towel, swimsuit, sarong, sunscreen, sunglasses, hat, and extra clothes. Depending on your interests, you might even want to carry an MP3 player or a book, and the tote is roomy enough to accommodate all this and more. Go for nautical prints or colour-block summer handbags and beach totes while you head out to enjoy the waves.
Is it an airport or train station that you’re heading towards? Then your best bet is to carry a tote or a chic summer handbag with a zipper. Regular security checks mean that you’ll need to keep putting your bag through screening and you don’t want your contents spilling out everywhere. Besides, there’s a good chance you’ll be carrying important documents such as your passport, tickets, and hotel reservations, apart from other essentials you’ll need en route. Opt for shoulder bags in unique colours and prints so that they are easy to spot at baggage collection.
