The perfect handbag is the ideal finishing touch to any look - one that’s both stylish and functional. That said, a coordinating wallet is the perfect addition to any handbag. After all - good taste deserves company!
Finding the accessory for every situation can be a challenge! Maybe you’re looking to dress up a formal outfit for a party or date, in which case a leather or leatherette shoulder bag or purse works beautifully - something subtle but that really pops with your look. A stylish clutch also works wonders and lets you carry essentials without the bulk of a bag. Leather and faux-leather are perfect for adding that extra touch of sophistication, so you can’t go wrong with that look.
For the casual, around-town look, the options really open up! Hobo bags typically rest on the shoulder and feature a relaxed, slouchy look, while crossbody bags typically feature a long, adjustable strap that reaches across the front of the body (a comfortable look that keeps the bag from slipping off the shoulder on the go, too). Large tote bags are perfect for teachers, moms, and anyone who tends to need a lot of room in their handbags. Canvas bags (most often available as totes) are ideal for beach trips because they’re durable and easy to clean, while a no-frills design makes it easy to pack in towels, snacks, and more!
Of course, every stylish handbag deserves to be accompanied by an equally good-looking wallet or wristlet! After all, with so many pockets and open space in a handbag, it’s nice to have all the essentials - credit cards, cash, ID, etc. - in one easy-to-find place. Plus, RFID wallets and wristlets are the newest trend and can help protect against identity theft. RFID purses are also available - after all, it never hurts to be too careful!
Speaking of wristlets, they’re a great alternative to handbags and wallets when you simply want to travel light with only a few cards, cash, and your phone. They’re small, easy to carry, and as stylish as their larger counterparts.
