3 Things to look for In a Fall Handbag
I like to wear different handbags for different seasons and there’s a reason for that. Handbags aren’t just an accessory, they are a tool. A tool to everyday life that holds your things, keeps you safe, and comes everywhere with you. That being said, here is some criteria to look for when shopping for a Fall handbag.
You want to look for a larger bag that is big enough to hold an umbrella, some gloves, and all your everyday items.
Since sometimes it’s super chilly, it’s nice to have your hands free to put your gloves on. When you aren’t wearing them, you have a bag that’s big enough to store them and if it’s raining (or flurrying) you want to be able to grab your umbrella and hold it with two hands so you need a bag that can fit everything else you may be holding.
Personally, I like leather or anything as close to that as I can get. It lasts longer and it isn’t as likely to rip or tear whenever you bang it around when you take it off or put it on.
I also like a bag that has sturdy handles or straps. I’ve had ones that are too thin or weak and they rip and tear right away. If you are anything like me, you have a lot in your handbag so you NEED a sturdy bag. Also, when it comes to shoulder drop – MAKE SURE it’s at least 6 inches. This way, when you have a coat on, you can easily hold this on your arm or even on your shoulder. Otherwise you are going to be stuck holding it in your hand and it could get in the way depending on what else you are carrying.
