Handbags For The New Season.

Handbags Tote Bags and all sorts of Bags!

With the new season upon us our minds turn to the new styles of clothing bags and accessories. Will it be red this year? Or maybe dark blue. And of course one of the most important new buys will be either a handbag or purse.

 Most women tend to have at least a few to hand but like anything else, handbags go out of fashion or the colors don’t match our ensemble. Some women prefer clutch bags which go with almost anything, and others prefer the more conventional shoulder bags.

These days you don’t have to spend out loads of cash for a really great looking holdall or handbag. Not everybody can afford designer wear and luckily you don’t have too. The old joke is that women tend to put everything in their shoulder bags, from make-up to the kitchen sink!

But the truth is we mainly use it for all our bits and bobs, including a matching purse or wallet. The advantage of buy a cheaper bag is that you can mix and match. Why buy one when you can buy six? Well, maybe not that many, but you get the idea!

I prefer a nice black leather purse, but when I go out, I like to change it for anything that fits my mood. So if you don’t know which one to choose, then check out the selection below.

 I am sure you will find one that suits you, and don’t forget, the best buys are the ones that you know will match your wardrobe.

Clutch Bags

You know how it is, you go into a shop and ask for a selection of handbags. The assistant then asks, would you like a Clutch bag, Tote, or Cross body? If you are anything like me, you just stare back with a blank look on your face! So here's a few pointers to let you know what's what.

You can't go wrong with a Clutch bag. This is a must for all the parties that you will be invited to. Nobody wants to carry a large shoulder bag for an evening out. There are a lovely variety of colors and materials to choose from.

La Regal is made from pleated fabric, and is just the right size for all the things you need to carry. These are fantastic little bags, because if you get tired of carrying them around, inside you will find an attachable shoulder strap that you can just clip on.

The Kenneth Cole bag is made from faux leather, which will always match with that little black dress that we women always end up wearing! After spending hours trying on numerous dresses, we decide, in our wisdom that actually our favorite is, well, our favorite. And black is so Chic, if you get something dripped, dropped or splashed on your black Clutch bag, a quick rinse under the tap, and two minutes under the drier will be all it takes to make it look new again.

Tote Bags

Tote bags are carry by hand, well, bags. And I love this Pink Chic one. I must admit that ever so often I do get a bit girly and go completely out of character. This one has loads of pockets for your every day needs such as make-up, cell phone and all the important things that we as women need every day. Like money for instance!

 Seriously, there's nothing worse than fiddling around at the bottom of your bag trying to find change, it can take ages. That's why this is great because it has zips, pockets and just about anything else. And, if you get fed up of carrying it by hand, then you can convert it into a shoulder bag with the extra detachable strap. Sorted! But if your taste is more conventional then there is always the darker bags that go with everything.

Crossbody Handbags

Crossbody handbags or long strap bags are the most popular. These are the ones that most people grab on their way out of the door. The reason is that you can sling it across your shoulders, and carry tons of other things at the same time. And the great thing about the featured bags is that they are really good quality. The Michael Kors Charlton is real genuine luxurious leather, and of course all the little pockets for you essentials.

So as you can see, there are all sorts of bags, for different occasions. I tend to use mine up until it virtually falls to pieces! That's exactly what's happened to mine today. So I have searched the house out for my collection of 'spares' and decided that actually, I really do have a very good reason to buy myself a new handbag! How cool is that? Any excuse she says!

Cuffu Online

I love this black/silver bag. With its faux leather patchwork and zip top closure, and material that is so soft! Not only is it classic its very Chic! And guess what? You get free Lada Gaga Style Sunglasses when you buy these amazing bags! They have just arrived at Amazon so snap them up quickly! At least I have found the one that I want. I am loving it!

I am showing just two of the Cuffu Online Range, but there are loads to choose from. So, don't take my word for it, go and take a look!

      How did I miss this? Well I look a purses every time I see them and own sooo many but bottom line is if it isn't hanging from my shoulder (or tied around my neck!) I am going to lose it. I have lost them with driver's license, all my IDs and best thingies loaded in it. Guess I am too much of a tomboy to not have both hands free, lol. Fun hub though and I do love them. ^

      Hi, Teylina, lol! no sorry, but if I find any I will let you know! I am lucky though she is a good friend, its mainly her daughter too who gets through the boots and bags quickly, so wants to pass them onto me, who happens to have just the right size feet! haha!

      Hi, Teylina, sounds good to me! lol! I have actually been given two pairs, yes two! of boots! yummy! and if that wasn't good enough, my friend then handed over a slurpilicious black shiny huge bag too! haha! handbag heaven! thanks for reading, cheers nell

      Great hub --as always! I really get that "blank look on [your] face;" I can definitely relate. Fewer bags than boots, but now I know why! I keep searching for the "perfect" bag instead of those that match or for certain occasions. I have ALL my bases covered as to right occasions, but you drove home I'm never gonna find the "perfect" bag. Guess that's why I always buy jeans (even tight) w/pockets--gloss, phone, ID, plastic--I go. Totes for shopping! And, yes, CreateS, Italian then Brazilian--oh yeah!

      Nell! My intent is write an etiquette hub today. Yet, sharing this hub and reading about 'chokers' my motor is revving. I may take someone shopping later today, which is my day off. Primed with all the ideas you have inspired I'm gon'na think about it over lunch. Nicely written hub offering to me an understanding of handbags, there differences, and seeing their meaning symbolically.

      Very nice, we women always love handbags. I always tend to buy big handbags and end up putting everything in it including the kitchen sink as you mentioned. My friends and family always tease me about it. Maybe I'll treat myself to a smaller handbag this spring so that I'll be forced to put less items in it.

      None of these bags will probably end up on my arm, lol, but they are gorgeous! I especially like the silverish crossbody handbag. No..wait the one in that first pic with the lady holding it. It is killer sexy. Yes, that one! Ok, just maybe I will break down and order that one.

      Nell, I must admit that i have a weakness for handbags and shoes. I don't like the clutch bags, but i love the cross body bags. Thank's for showing the new trend. Last year i bought a brown and black bag for winter that worked really well since i usually wear brown or black shoes or boots, i love boots too. Thanks.. Cheers
