Hello Lady High Flyers!
Did you know that handbags are not only designed to keep your belongings, but also to make a fashion statement? Oh yes, that is true. In the fashion world, you do not just pick anything anyhow. Handbag selection should be as careful and selective a process as you would for your dress. So, how do you know which handbag works best for you?
Before we go any further, contrary to what most people think, small is the new classy. You don`t want an overly large bag that tends to overwhelm your frame. Avoid shoulder bags with a long strap as they will weigh you down, making you look even shorter. At the same time, avoid a handbag that is too small as it will make you look larger.
Now let`s talk about colour choice. What colour works best for you?
The main thing that should determine your choice of a handbag is your body shape. The general rule is that your handbag shape should be the opposite of your body shape. if you are a very tall and thin person, you don`t want to use a handbag that is tall as well. You need a rounded, curvy handbag. You will find that it will add some curves to your figure. In other words, your handbag must complement what you lack physically.
If you are a short and curvy person, play off opposites by choosing a handbag that is tall and rectangular or long and sleek (like a clutch).
But remember, this does not mean that you have to always be carrying a big rectangular box around in order to counterbalance your womanly shape. It`s all about understanding your body and reading the correct signals for your needs.
Do you watch the TV show Keeping Up With The Kardashians? Have you seen how great Kim looks with her large rectangular clutch bag. It`s because Kim has a petite, curvy figure that is best complemented by a rectangular type of bag.
Did you know that colour transmits energy and also sometimes portrays what’s in your inner being? For example, to make a statement that you are a person full of war, danger, strength, power, the determination as well as passion, desire or love then a red handbag is the right one for you. Red as a colour is used in fashion to strongly bring images to the foreground. It is used as an accent colour to stimulate people to make quick decisions. That is why you see on most websites buttons like “Buy Now” or “Click Here” are usually red in colour.
If you choose a yellow handbag you shout out a message that you are full of optimism, creativity, and playfulness. Green is usually worn by individuals who are calm in nature and have the innate desire to help those around them. Pink screams of sex and romance and is worn by both men and women who aren't opposed to having a good time. This colour is also meant to symbolize compassion and dealings with the heart.
Get the colour that works best for you. You may get right on the size and shape of your handbag but fail at the colour choice. Never forget that colour plays a very integral role in communicating certain messages. That is why even the business world seriously takes colours into consideration, to drive advertising messages without literally speaking or explaining themselves to anyone.
