I switch handbags quite often, but I find always find myself gravitating to similar styles and that is what led me to find out if it is a personality thing. You know that there is a deeper meaning to why we gravitate toward and carry the bags we do. Our handbag of choice reveals a lot about our personality. Read on to find out.

What does your Handbag tell about you?

Classic tote: You carry a neat, well structured bag with all the necessary items in it. You’re ready to take on the world and always come prepared. You tend to be a planner and don’t like to get stuck without something you might need. You’re the kind of style-setter that is drawn to timeless, clean, sophisticated silhouettes.

Sleek sling bag: You are straight forward and don’t like unnecessary fuss. You like to feel free and prefer looking stylish at all times, you do appreciate the finer things in life.

Here are few points that should be kept in mind before picking up a bag.

• Match the formality, satin works for formal, but not casual.
• Relate the colours of your bag and your outfit. Choose colours that don’t clash to provide an accent colour.
• Relate the size of the bag with the purpose, day bags are larger than evening bags.

  1. Interesting. But how can a bag describe/define the personality.
    I might carry one bag during the day and a clutch in the evening.
    Next day, I might change my bag according to my attire or social engagement or my need.
    How can a bag define me?
