The Right Bag for Your Body Type

Bags not only make an outfit, they’re the perfect way to show off your figure.

-Charu Suri

Whether you’re skinny, curvy, tall or petite, chances are that you’ve given a lot of thought to your outfit. But did you know that a handbag can flatter your body as much as a pair of carefully picked skinny jeans or your Little Black Dress? In this Golden Era of Accessories, there’s no shortage of choices. Here are two thumb rules can help lift your outfit from drab to fab:

Daytime Bags
If you’re sporting office wear, skip the clutch. Your best bet would be to carry a stylish tote or satchel to work.

Evening Bags
The glamorous, beaded variety is generally best for black tie. If you’re going to a cocktail party or something that is a little less dressy, opt for an elegant bag with chains.

Avoid pairing the same shade of bag to the same  shade of dress, because your outfit will look washed out. You always want a handbag to be a colorful or elegant accent.

  1. I’ve always wondered if big bags make me look smaller. It seems that way to me in the mirror- but I’m sooo glad I read this article! I’m loving the Halston bag, too! So awesome!

  2. I agree with Kayte71; matching colors of bags to the outfit just slipped my mind as a wash-out possibility! I’m so glad to know that average height/shaped girls can look good with just about anything… I’m not very conscious of my accessories, but the section on day and night bags will help (:
