  • Finding the perfect bag: The lowdown

    0 comments / Posted by Lucy Evans

    An important investment for any outfit, choosing the perfect bag can take time and thought. On average, a woman owns around 21 handbags in her lifetime, so we’ve selected our top five most important features to consider when choosing that all-important accessory. Take a look at our lowdown below to help choose the right bag for you!



    Lifestyle

    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.

    Perfect Handbag Lifestyle

    Size

    What essentials need to fit in your bag? If you’re not a self confessed hoarder and enjoy carrying a few daily basics, then you will love the freedom that comes with a smaller cross body handbag. For those of you who like to keep your life in your bag, a roomy tote can offer all of the space you need to store away your items.

    Perfect Handbag Size

    Price

    A big factor when it comes to purchasing a bag, price can be one of the most influential aspects when finding the perfect bag. For everyday wear, it is worth investing a little more money – you want something durable and good quality due to the wear and tear of everyday life.

    Colour

    With classic neutral shades such as black, navy and grey suitable for everyday wear, why not mix it up with brighter colour's during the summer months and nights out?

    Body type

    In addition to other factors, choosing the right bag for your shape can flatter your body – just like any other accessory you may be wearing. Slim and tall women can benefit from mid and oversized sized bags to keep them in proportion, whilst short and petite women appear taller with small handbags!

  • The Ultimate Handbag Guide

    0 comments / Posted by 2583

    THE DO’S THE DON’TS AND EVERYTHING INBETWEEN

     Just when you think you’ve got the hang of fashion another trend comes along pretty quickly, it can be challenging and expensive to always be on trend but don’t forget trends come and go and come back again. We’ve put together a guide for all handbag lovers to ensure you always look your best. DO: Keep a Variety of Bags You Own If you’re a secret hoarder this first task may be difficult but it can also be refreshing, getting rid of old bags will not only give you more room, but should leave you with just the essentials. We advise to have one bag for each different environment, for example; Work: A medium or large bag is always handy; it ensures you have everything for the day ahead. Work bags tend to have a structured, leather or tote appearance and investing in a good sturdy work bag will save you money in the future, if you choose a basic colour of black, tan, burgundy or even cream you’ll always be in style, plus it makes getting ready in a morning much easier, as these colours go with everything! H1transparent Nights out: When on a big night out, the last thing any woman wants is to haul around a huge bag, but we still need something big enough for all our ‘night out essentials’ but small enough it doesn’t get in the way or become an accessory on the dance floor. A clutch bag is always a good start; some come with straps making it easier to carry and all come in a range of sizes, shapes and colours, making the clutch a perfect going out bag. Leisure Time: If you’re out with friends and family, having a small crossbody, satchel, messenger bag or mini backpack is the perfect accessory, however if you’ve planned a day of shopping then having a shopper bag, medium backpack or a trapeze handbag is great for extra storage. All these types of bags come in a huge range of designs and shapes, there’s no specific colour of choice and if you want to go a little quirky, choosing a pattern or bright and bold colour will ensure you stand out through every season. H2 Don’t: Have a Bag That Gets Bulky There are some bags that have a particular material that when filled to the brim with everything but the kitchen sink will be unable to disguise all those pointy corners, lumps and bumps. It makes your entire look appear messy and unorganised, so try and avoid these bags or only take what you really need. DO: Take Care of Your Bags This is an obvious one, especially if you’ve paid a lot of money for your dream bag, but taking care of your bag doesn’t just mean cleaning the exterior, if you carry a lot of pens in your bag make sure they’re in a plastic bag or an old make up bag to ensure if any ink spills it won’t spoil the interior. This same tip goes for clutch bags, putting any make-up such as lipsticks in a separate pouch will ensure your bag is good for another night out. Most bags can be easily cleaned with everyday cleaning products, for example, baby wipes on leather bags and patent bags will remove dirt spots. DO: Try and Pick a Bag for Your Shape If you’re interesting in delving deeper about what bag to choose, research into what types of bags flatter certain body shapes and how certain sizes or bags can change your entire appearance, this will come in useful when it comes to patterns, if you’re a fashionista who likes to mix and match patterns or you love a good block colour, see what works for you, it’s your style.

  • How to Find the Perfect Work Bag

    0 comments / Posted by 2583

    With so many bags to choose from, how could you ever choose just the one? They pull together a look and can update a basic outfit. Your handbag looks after all the little essentials to your daily life. Combining practicality with style and function isn’t easy – cue the work-bag dilemma. If only you could contain your yoga pants, emergency snacks and all of your meeting notes in one…

    1) The modern woman’s work-bag should have space to easily slot a laptop and a separate pocket for your phone. SwankySwans Elle Business Bag is perfect for its spacious and tidy compartments.

    2) A good work-bag needs to be sturdy in order to carry all of your essentials. Make a list of all the items you carry on a daily basis (and the extra bits that get thrown in too). SwankySwans Sara Pocket Work Bag is sturdy and stylish and will try to withhold it all!

    3) Check that it is practical, preferably with three compartments. Channel Mary Poppins’ with some clever storage solutions.

    4) A work bag doesn’t have to be formal and neutral toned. You can still be smart and professional whilst showing some of your personality. Splash some sparkle into your work wardrobe and opt for a statement colour, unique details or a bold pattern.
