Handbags For Office – Based On Your Body Shape

Handbags are as important part of your outfit as your clothes and your shoes. Every fashion brand today has its own line of handbags. There is a wide variety to choose from in terms of styles and price.

Handbags For Office Based On Your Body Shape

However, like every other piece in your outfit, you shouldn’t blindly follow trends while buying a bag. It is important that bag that you carry, especially to work, suits your body shape and frame. Therefore, before purchasing a bag, always try it on in front of a full-length mirror just as you would try clothes on.

Here are some tips to keep in mind while choosing a handbag:

Tall and Thin:  You are the lucky ones to get away with anything. Oversized and big bags will look best on you while the smaller ones can make you look even taller and leaner. So, if you want to carry a small clutch, then carry it snugly under your shoulders.

Short and Plump:

Short and small handbags that fit under your shoulders, small hand clutches and short messenger bags will look the best on you. Larger bags will make you appear more plump than you already are.
