Probably one of the most important questions you will have to ask yourself is how and when will you be using your bag? What outfits will you be wearing with it? Answering these questions will help determine the style of handbag that you need – from smaller clutches for those nights out with the essentials to bigger satchel styles for work. For the more organised amongst you, compartments are practical for storing away different items in an easily accessible way, whilst those seeking comfort will want a shoulder strap.
