Basic rules for wearing handbags
We recommend choosing a bag with a belt or chain according to your body height. The item is usually placed at waist level or some inches lower (important tip: the purse in the middle of your hip will hit your legs). If you intend to carry the accessory aslant, the bag strap should be much longer so that the purse is not under your armpit.
We recommend the girl with broad shoulders to choose the variants of bags of rectangular forms (saddlebags, messengers);
Hobo style volumetric design will be the optimal choice for the lady with wide hips.
We strongly recommend young girls with lush forms to refuse miniature variants or rounded handbags. The ideal choice is the ones with strict straight shapes that can add elegance to the image and emphasize natural grace;
One of the basic general rules is: do not overload a bag, even if its volume allows it. A bag that is too heavy, shapeless, and large makes your shoulders get tired and affects your posture.
The compact ladies’ accessory can always be complemented with more large pieces. The original version will be a combination of two slight elements, designed in the same style and hanging on one shoulder.
How to carry a man’s bag over one shoulder properly.
The rules for choosing men’s accessories differ slightly from the recommendations for women. First, representatives of the male sex hardly use small models, preferring spacious and functional bags.
Men’s shoulder bag should combine the following aspects:
Practicality. Men choose shoulder bags which provide complete freedom of hands and convenience in wearing oversized things;
Solidity. Men’s accessories must emphasize the status, individual style of the owner. They may be accessories made of leather and less often of thick fabrics in dark tones;
Long lifespan. If a lady can change handbags several times a day according to her mood, casual, and evening outfit, then men prefer a practical item that will serve for years.
The main criterion of choice is that the bag should not bring only aesthetic pleasure to the owner but also provide maximum comfort during carrying.
