Signature handbags to look your best every day
Your purse says a lot about you. In fact, it's one of the best ways to inject a bit of your unique personality into your daily style. Whether you're classic or quirky, you can easily find a handbag that reflects your inner self – so throw it on, and get ready to shine! You might want a collection of several purses, so you can change it up depending on your outfit. Alternatively, choose just one investment piece, and make it part of your signature style. Before you start, though, think about two things: How much space you need, and how you're going to carry it. Make sure that your handbag fits your lifestyle, or you'll just end up frustrated.
Finding the right purse for the office
A classic leather bag is always welcome in any office, no matter how formal the workplace. To keep it safe, choose one in a basic, neutral colour. Black will always be the safest choice, but don't feel limited. You could also go for tan, camel, or rich chocolate. Think about the colours that make up your work wardrobe, and ensure that your chosen bag goes with them. If you tend to wear neutrals at work, then look for a purse that will add a bright pop of colour to your outfit. This is a great time to go for something funky and different, like a bright red or forest green handbag. You don't need the rest of your accessories to match, but they should at least be complementary; your handbag should never clash with any other parts of your outfit.
Handbags for the street
Away from the office, you might prefer a smaller purse to carry only your essential accessories. Why not mix it up a bit? Choose a handbag with a fun print or an unusual graphic decal detail. This will make it really clear that you're not just carrying your work bag around with you! Think beyond leather: There are plenty of funky cloth handbags out there, so you might want to embrace one. Alternatively, if you don't want to go loud, look for one with a plain exterior but a fun lining that will make you smile every time you open it. To personalise it, add a keyring or some charms to the zip head – a great way of injecting a playful touch of your own style to your bag.
