Another type of popular quilted handbag is the cross body handbags on offer. These bags are large, spacious, soft, and stunning. A woman can carry the bag as it is slung over the body and this frees up the female’s hands to take care of other things.

Many women opt for the quilted bags in classic styles. There are some that are sold in white or black colors. These bags match any kind of outfit and no further thought has to be put into considering what outfits will color coordinate with the bag chosen. Black or white handbags are ideal for work, for special events, for everyday use, and for casual or dressy occasions.

Quilted handbags are coveted because they are made with amazing quality. Every fabric is hand selected and every thread is finely sewn. The bags are long lasting,durable, attractive, and many designs prove timeless. Even vintage quilted handbags remain appealing today. Quilted bags come with leather trims, wooden handles, and they are sold in an array of colors and patterns. Thus, it is easy for a woman to find one or more bags that prove appealing.

A Woman Who Prides Herself on Her Creativity

A Woman Who is Known for Her Ability to Work Well Under Pressure

What Handbag Size Conveys

Size really does matter! Some women carry a uniquely small purse, which probably contains little more than a lipgloss and a credit card. This type of handbag; dainty and under the arm says, “I am a globe-trotter. When I travel I don’t need anything more than my credit card.” (A girl should always be ready!)

However, today’s hottest handbags are enormous! Hummer-like, with loads of embellishments, grommets and rings…very rock and roll. A tribute to Jane Birken who always carried her life in her bag. Hermes created a bag specifically for her and that bag’s revival was THE bag to have. This kind of large bag acquires the rock and roll attitude that says, “‘I’m every woman, it’s all in me!”.

The Color of Your Handbag

Let’s talk about color. Bright colored handbags and accessories are often designed for young girls, but many women love color as well. Here’s a nugget of wisdom on handbag color choices: If you love color, go with color … but definitely think about what the color does for you. If you don’t look great in red, but love the color and are crazy about beet red bag – go for it! But choose a handbag with a small strap, so you’re not wearing the color next to your skin. A colorful bag can make an outfit, but too much can be too much. Follow the rule the makeup artists use – do the eyes or the lips, but don’t do both. Doing so can cheapen the effect.
