For women that are not into handbags, it is very difficult and confusing to choose your handbags for a wardrobe. How many should I have? What kind of material? What colors? Which price range is the best for my money? Which types of handbags look good on me? There are so many questions and just as many handbags available at department stores and boutiques. This hub is a guide for women that are new to handbags or just want some advice in the handbag department.

A work bag is needed and leather satchels in neutral colors are the most appropriate. The handbag should be just one color with some hardware (either silver or gold toned) on it. You should avoid excessive hardware on the handbag because that makes it look less professional for the office or business.

A tote for shopping is essential as well. When you go shopping, you want a light weight tote because your hands should be free to look through all the goods. This tote needs to be a cheaper bag that is canvass, durable, medium to large sized and comfortable on the shoulder. You can also use this bag when going to the beach.

Another handbag that you need is a small clutch for the evening. You should try to pick this one in neutral colors because it will match most of your night outfits (such as a little black skirt). Some handbag makers have clutches that come with a detachable strap. Those are highly recommended because you can carry it over your shoulder and also hold it in your hands. It is getting more for the amount of money that you paid for it.

So, for absolute necessity, a woman only needs to have 3 handbags. Anything extra is not necessary. So what's best for your money? Mid range designer handbag brands are the best for your money because they are good quality, nice designs and at a reasonable price. These mid range designer brands include Coach, Dooney and Bourke, See by Chole, Juicy Couture, Guess, Rebecca Minkoff, MICHAEL Michael Kors, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Kate Spade and Botkier. These bags are from $100 (from outlet usually) to about $600 (a very nice leather bag). If you have the money, it is also good to invest in a classic designer handbag that never goes out of style.

So what looks good on me? Handbags would have to be proportional to the body. Here is what I mean, a 5 feet petite woman should not be carrying a huge tote. The handbag will overwhelm your body and makes it look like you can fit in the bag. Handbags should also be age appropriate. A Juicy Couture pink velour daydreamer bag should not be on the shoulder of a 45 years old women with two kids. Some people want to argue that you can rock whatever handbags you like. Nothing is further from the truth; you should always try to look classy never tacky.
