Handbag Types that Compliment an Outfit

I want to end this fashionable February with the five types of handbags that women should own. These are essential to compliment any outfit in different occasions. Read and be inspired to Lindsey Michelle fashionable handbags statement:

Classic Handbag

This sturdy, ubiquitous style can take a girl from a meeting to lunch. These purses are usually medium-sized, good for toting essentials such as a wallet, phone and a bit of makeup, but not large enough to carry numerous extras for a full day out. It’s a ladylike look, perfectly paired with a skirt, dress or nice pants. The straps are usually at a length to be carried by hand as opposed to swung over the shoulder.
If squared-off edges seem too “hard” or old-fashioned, consider a “bucket” shape. The edges are a more rounded and therefore a bit softer. The difference is that many bucket bags don’t have a closure the way handbags do, so users need to be sure all their belongings stay within the bag and don’t fall out.

Tote Bag

Totes are increasingly popular as everyday bags, not simply for travel. Most designers make tote bags, often in soft and cushy leather (but totes can be found in all fabrics.) Perhaps it’s the increase in the number of items women carry with them that make tote bags so essential.

Totes can be found in many crazy fabrics and patterns, but most women will get the best use out of a more neutral color and fabric – blacks, browns, grays or silvers complement most outfits.


Clutches, a very old-fashioned type of purse, have made a huge comeback in the past few seasons. Designers have shown everything from fancy, bejeweled styles to casual everyday looks. Since a clutch is so small, however, and the contents inside quite limited, it may be worthwhile to buy a more dressy style to use for nicer occasions.
One thing to keep in mind with a clutch is that it has to be held in hand the entire night. That’s why a worthy alternative to a clutch is a Wristlet.


Wristlets are special because they can serve two purposes – they can be their own purse, or most have a keychain strap that can be connected to a larger bag (a great way to keep important items, such as keys or money, separate from the rest of the contents of a larger bag.) The brand Coach helped popularize wristlets several years ago, and many designers currently have wristlets as part of their purse inventory, including Marc Jacobs.

Because wristlets are miniature in size, bright or colorful patterns that may seem overwhelming on larger bags look cute and attractive on a wristlet. It also doesn’t particularly matter if the wristlet matches the larger bag, though it’s often easy to find coordinating bags if desired.

Over-the-Shoulder Bag

This can be any bag that’s large enough to be worn over the shoulder or across the chest, ideal for circumstances in which the user needs to keep both hands free or wants extra protection for her bag – such as mothers pushing strollers, long shopping trips or within crowded areas. One style that fits this requirement is a messenger bag, though there are other slimmer and chicer options available as well (such as smaller, squared purses with lengthy straps.)

Season’s Top Fashion Handbag Colors

Be colorful and trendy.

Typically, Spring fashion is a time for blossoms and brights and this is a chance for fashion designers to break away from grays and earthy colors of fall and winter and add a touch of freshness and light.

This season, the top fashion colors are not only applied to clothing but on handbags as well. Try yourself to be acquainted with the season’s favorite colors.

prada-handbags-color1The Blue Hues

Palace Blue — a favorite amongs designers which takes a navy undertone and makes it sparkle. A cross between a sky blue and strong navy. This is a color which works with almost any other, pink, yellow, lavender or green.

Lavender — the regal purple of fall has been adapted to a softer lighter lilac, feminine and romantic, and slightly mystical.

Rose Dust — a pale pinky blue, which is a welcome break from traditional neutrals. Almost a white-washed lavender, this is one of the coolest colors.

Slate Gray — a cool and calming nuanced neutral and is a perfect pairing to lavender hues.

prada-handbags-colorThe Red Hues

Fuchsia Red –—Vibrant yet seductive, powerful and robust. Fresh and dazzling, fuchsia features heavily in nail polish and lipsticks too.

Salmon Rose — Mixing a soft salmon pink with the subtleness of oranges which is flattering to most complexions and gives a warm healthy glow.

prada-handbags-color2The Green Hues

Vibrant Green — a mossy mid-green which is bright but not harsh

Dark Citron — a calm, almost olive color which blends perfectly with this season’s lemon tones.

Lucite Green — a clean, subtle, soft green which adds a slight shimmer


Super Lemon — brings a fun, optimistic outlook to the Palette. Its luminosity is determined to evoke a smile and attract the roving consumer’s eyes.
