Updated on April 23, 2012

When it comes to shopping for handbags, this is something that can be a lot of fun, as the possibilities for different styles of them are truly endless. And not much else compares to the feeling of being able to snag the perfect bag at a great price to go with a particular outfit in your wardrobe. And one of the most popular and quality bag brands out there are by designers Smith and Canova. They offer all kinds of different bags to suit just about any style or to go with any outfit that you may have in your wardrobe.

Types of Handbags

There are many different types of these Claudia Canova handbags to choose from. For example, you may want to buy a shoulder bag, which is ideal for being able to easily and securely have your belongings with you. Plus, these come in all different sizes and they have them in some amazing styles. Shoulder bags are convenient for those who often have their hands full and need an easy way to tote their bag around.

For those who are looking for something a little more casual, a tote bag could be perfect for them. These tend to be less expensive than other styles of Smith and Canova purses. Typically, they do not have any buckles or buttons holding them shut and no additional pouches or storage beyond the storage space inside the tote. But these are absolutely perfect for toting around things for a day to the beach or to use as an overnight bag since they are typically larger and can hold a lot.

What about evening bags to go with a great outfit for a night out on the town? Well, Claudia and Canova has some great evening bags to choose from on their website. They have everything from clutches and wallets to small purses. A rhinestone studded snap clutch is a great option for someone who is looking for a stylish way to carry a few things personal items on a night out, such as their ID, lipstick and cell phone. Or, for those who do not want a clutch, they can always get a great Smith and Canova wallet that can double as an easy storage option for a night out, or to use as a traditional wallet in their purse.

Other Types of Handbags

Aside from the Smith and Canova brand of purses and handbags, however, there are others to choose from that offer great style for just about any look. For example, Mischa Barton is a popular brand that has everything from shoulder bags and totes to clutches and wallets. Suzy Smith is also a popular designer when it comes to purses and handbags, specializing in an elegant and professional style that can easily match most outfits and bright coloured accessories. These styles are perfect for spring and summer time due to their vibrant patterns and colour palettes.

Smith and Canova also make some of their own bags outside of the standard Claudia Canova collection. These tend to be bolder designs with brighter colours, or even some vintage designs that can top off any look.

This particular brand has everything from Bugatti style bags to wallets and just about everything in between.
