Picking the wrong handbag can lead to creating a wrong impression.

A handbag is one of the most essential items in a woman’s wardrobe. It reflects her personality. A good outfit is never complete without a handbag to go with it. Nowadays we are prepared to spend more on a handbag than on a holiday. The best feeling is to go around your neighbourhood flaunting it. A handbag is something deeply private to its owner, but tells a lot about a person as well. We carry cash, credit cards, make-up, keys, pocket diary, laptop, cell-phones, and containers and so on. Many men find the complexities of what a woman carry in her handbag, thrillingly incomprehensible, and would never dare to sneak into its privacy.

But what if you pick up the wrong one? So keep these tips in mind. Firstly, decide your budget or you might end up spending more than you can afford. Handbags are available from Rs. 200 to Rs. 20,000 and more. Then figure out its purpose. Would you use it for work, with casual wear or for parties? You don’t want to stand out by carrying a bag for an occasion inappropriate for it. Check if your handbag matches your outfit. It looks even better when it matches your shoes. Make sure that the texture and colour of your handbag is good. Now it’s time to hit the store and fill your wardrobe with your spunky collection!
