Many women find great joy in the process of getting ready – from makeup to hair, to picking out the perfect outfit; getting ready truly is the ultimate form of “me time.” But let’s face it, decisions can be tough to make and being ready to head out the door only to be held back by the daunting decision of which bag is appropriate for the occasion you’re attending is an all too common event. If you’ve been hit by this wave of indecisiveness in the past, worry not; you’ve come to the right place. Here’s everything you need to know about picking the best handbag for different occasions!
Any bag that you bring to your place of employment needs to be two things – durable and functional. It is where you spend most of your time so that it will be subject to a lot of wear and tear. Most workers also tend to bring a plethora of items (lunches, laptops, sweaters, etc.) with them to work, and your bag needs to be able to hold all those things.
Our two top picks for office bags are a tote bag and a leather backpack. Tote bags are known for their ability to carry a high volume of items with relative ease, and they are just as stylish as they are spacious. Leather backpacks are all the rage these days because they are as practical as a bag can come and look super sleek. You can easily slip your laptop into a leather backpack and get all the back support you need from this bad boy.
Date night is the perfect time to show your significant other you’ve still got it going on, and selecting a bag that pairs well with your outfit is an absolute essential. That being said, you still want to pick a bag that is just as functional as it is fashionable. You might be mini putting, taking a dance lesson, or hitting up the go-kart track after all.
We recommend picking out a bag that’s cute and complimentary, but lets you have full use of your hands. Shoulder bags and crossbody bags of the smaller variety are definitely the way to go!
Girls night is a great opportunity to show off all your latest purchases to your lady friends. It’s also the ultimate occasion to display your flair for fashion. No one can appreciate a bold fashion choice quite like a good girlfriend, and since most girls nights tend to involve some form of sitting, the sky’s the limit.
With all that in mind, the best bag for a girls’ night out is undoubtedly a clutch. It’s a fabulous accessory that can elevate the look of any outfit and hold all the essentials you need for a night on the town. Just make sure you don’t leave it on the table once dinner is made!
This fancy affair is all about the etiquette of small talk and growing your network. You want to come off as a professional that has a great sense of style and all your ducks in a row. The cocktail party calls for a classy piece that won’t get in the way of all your mingling.
A mini bag with a chain is a solid option for any cocktail party or formal event. It pairs well with pretty much any dress and won’t weigh down your shoulder after wearing it all night.
Brunch and other daytime affairs are more relaxed occasions that call for fun yet flirty, casual outfits. This is a place where you can leave your designer bags at home and let your lower-priced goods and vintage finds shine through.
At the end of the day, what really matters when it comes to picking a bag for brunch is the comfort and the ability to easily toss it over your chair. The mini backpack or sling bags are both great options for doing just that!
