Picking the Perfect Handbag

The perfect handbag should be both polished and practical arm piece. To help you find your dream handbag, we’ve put together a quick guide to finding the best ladies handbag for either day or night.

Ladies, we all know that having the right bag is one of our days to day essentials. We can’t live without having a handbag to suit the occasion or style situation. Just because a handbag is primarily about function doesn’t mean it has to be dull in appearance! Finding a special handbag is the standard nowadays, and buying a handbag of luxurious quality is most definitely one of the most important elements to consider when choosing your new handbag. Here are Crofton & Hall’s tips to keeping things fresh when it comes to picking the perfect handbag for all occasions.


Look For Versatility

If life is so hectic, versatility is what you need. Often, the best handbags are a colour that goes with almost everything. If you don’t have the time, energy, or resources to switch your bag with every outfit, black and brown go with practically everything! That said, if you’re really looking for a statement handbag, many metallics, skins, and shades of white can be just as versatile and make great, fresher alternatives.


Experiment With Brights

Add some life to the toned-down neutral look by investing in a handbag in a statement colour.

Wearing jeans and a tee or a classic dark suit? A carryall in bright orange, red, or pink is an instant pick-me-up for your look.


Consider Size

If you’re toting a ton of must-haves around the city or the country, you’re going to need to get a bigger bag. A handbag that’s overstuffed looks sloppy. Doubling up on your handbag with a tote or a carryall is fine, but don’t weigh yourself down. If you have extra items to carry, fill up a large handbag to carry along with your regular purse. Better yet, stash a smaller bag in it for later!

Balance Your Look

Look for a handbag that suits your size. Petite? Don’t carry something that makes your stature stand out; instead, choose a handbag of a small to medium size. On the taller side? A small handbag will accentuate your height and may look out of proportion. Try a handbag that’s large or oversized for a balanced effect.


In With The New

You can never have enough handbags, but sometimes it’s time to bring in a fresh bag or two to the collection. We can all get attached to old favourites, but recognize when it’s time to buy a new handbag to keep looking at the moment. Holes, tears, frayed stitching, and worn leather mean your bag needs to be retired.


Indulge in Skins

Ostrich, crocodile, alligator, python, and other leathers are made to last. These luxurious animal skin handbags are definitely a splurge, but consider it an investment that you can carry for years without compromising on style.
