Like shoes, bags drive us crazy. You could have thousands, one for each occasion and they would still be “insufficient”. However, we always have “our favorite”.
That bag, which is the most comfortable , is neither very big nor small, it fits everything, weighs little, has friendly closures and you can combine it with any type of clothing. As we know that it is difficult to choose one among a thousand temptations, today we advise you to help you make the best purchase.
10 tips to know which bag to buy
1. Which bag to choose according to your body.
The key is to compensate for the lines and curves of the body. You have to choose a bag or shoulder bag with the opposite shape to your figure. If you are a tall woman and have a figure without many curves, you can choose a large bag , but if you are short and petite, small bags will suit you like a glove. And if slim women are more favored by curved shapes , on the contrary, curvy women look better at straight bags.
2. Length of the bag.
Avoid putting your bag, backpack or shoulder bag at the height of the largest part of your body . Thus, you will not highlight that area where you do not want others to notice. In addition, you have bags that offer the possibility of adjusting the height of it. The bags should be accessories that enhance our figure, not the other way around.
3. A bag for every occasion.
It is not the same day to day, going to work or going to a party at night. Therefore, you should look at what occasion you need the bag for:
- An easy-to-carry crossbody bag is suitable to wear it both day and night, to go to the office or to go on a date at night.
- A shopping bag is the perfect ally for women who have a dizzying pace of life and who do not know when they are going to pass by. Thus, you can carry a thousand things with you like; mobile, tablet, agenda, toiletry bag, sunglasses … and be prepared for any unforeseen event.
- A “my lady” or “hand” style bag is the best option for when you want to feel more feminine. It is a smaller bag than a shopping bag, but it also has many functionalities. Bring a distinction to your everyday T-shirt and jeans outfit .
- Choose a crossbody bag, hobbo bag, or backpack for a more casual look. It’s just as versatile and has a point of comfort that others might not have. Right now it is very fashionable. For the most bohemian women looking for a casual look, this is the ideal type of bag. It has a great capacity to carry everything you need and include all the “just in case” you want.
4. The color.
Sometimes the trends mark very striking colors or prints. You can choose a seasonal accessory without fear, but if what you are looking for is to be able to take it anywhere and on any occasion, go for neutral colors . Black, beige, gray, silver, raw, white, camel, navy blue, coffee, brown …
5. What is your style.
Don’t forget to look within and find out what suits you best according to your personality. There are classic, vintage or retro, eighties, daring bags with funny, elegant and minimalist shapes (flat colors), prints, modern, casual. Take into account your personality and which one you look prettier with.
6. Materials and finishes.
There are women who have to carry everything in our bags, backpacks or purses, to face our day to day, so make sure that the straps of the bags are thick and with the seams well finished, if you do not want to have a dislike . Also see if they can be washed.
And if you do not want to be aware of the washing, leather bags are more resistant and do not require much cleaning . If you are a more informal person, you can choose various types of materials such as plastic, fabric, etc. ideal for day and day. Invest your money well depending on how you are going to use the bag.
7. The size of the bag is also important.
Choose the one that best suits your needs. At Caminatta Bags we think of all of you and our design team is very concerned with offering bags with optimal sizes to carry on a day-to-day basis.
8. Which is better, the zip or magnet closure?
Well, there are opinions for all tastes. The zip closure is more secure , but the magnet closure allows you to open your bag more quickly and allows more alternative designs. However, the magnet can demagnetize your cards. So again, you will have to assess the use you want to give it.
9. Prioritize the functionality you want to give the bag.
Avoid buying a bag with an infinite bottom, as you could go crazy trying to find your keys, lipstick, or wallet. A practical choice can be those bags that have several compartments since they help to organize the things you carry. One for the mobile phone, another for the wallet, keys, card holder, more accessible outer bag, etc.
10. The contrast in your look.
If you are going to base your choice of bag to match your look, you should know that now the contrast is more.
If you are passionate about ‘animal print’ and other patterns, we recommend that the clothes go in the same tonality and the shoes in plain with one of the colors of the bag. For example; if your accessory is made of leopard, neutral colored clothes would suit you very well; like cream or beige, or dark ones; gray and black. And the footwear could be brown or black.
On the other hand, remember that the bags with neutral colors that we said before, combine with everything.
And above all, keep in mind that it has to be a crush at first sight, that never fails. If you look pretty, don’t hesitate, buy it.
