Women all over the world know that an outfit without the perfect bag just is not complete.  The perfect handbag is not only for functionality but also adds a compliment to a woman's color scheme, style and personality.


By adding a handbag to her outfit a woman knows that she is making a fashion statement.  Just like a woman puts on her necklace, bracelets, earrings and other jewelry to enhance her outfit this is also the same for a handbag.  It brings out another level of style, elegance and fashion flare.


Choosing the right handbag is essential to making a woman's outfit complete rather than making it a disaster.  A woman may not have any idea just how much goes into choosing the appropriate handbag for her style and wardrobe.  Below are some really simple tips to helping you choose the best handbag for you.


How to Choose Style/design:

Decide which style is most appropriate for the occasion.


The right handbag can add charm and dazzle to your presence; it really completes the look.  When choosing your handbag, always stay true to your own style.


Which Shape:

There are hundreds if not hundreds of thousands of beautiful bags available but not all will be a match for you and your unique style.  To enhance your actual physical appearance taller and slender woman should choose rounder shaped bags.  If you are less tall and a bit heavy set you should look more toward angular bags with corners and lines.  Following these tips will help flatter your figure.


What’s the Best Size:

When searching out your handbag, pay attention to size.  Big and bulky bags will not complement a heavier frame.  In fact it will make you look larger.  Choose a sleek and more compact design to match your body structure.  For a more slender frame choose a round style or slightly bigger bag to even out your shape. Also, a smaller bag can make your look taller, while a larger bag can reduce height for taller woman.


How to Choose A Color:

These days it is very common and quite popular for designers to have multiple colors in the bags design.  While these styles might look nice while the bag is hanging on the rack, it's a different story when you are matching it with your outfits.  Stick with bags that actually match your wardrobe and compliment your features such as hair color and skin tone.  Darker bags complement lighter color features while lighter colors compliment darker complexions.


What is a good Price:

While most women would love to own all the expensive designer bags, for the average woman this just is not realistic.  There are tons of bags available that will not only compliment you but give a fabulous finish to your outfit.  And they will not break your bank.  While a nice designer bag is a treat do not think that you can not look absolutely fashionista with a bag that does not carry a heavy price tag.  Shop around and pay whatever price fits your budget.
