The Complete Glossary of Bag Shapes

21 Aug

It is often said that “the suit makes the man”, I believe the same is true for women and their handbags. Not unlike a suit, handbags for many women are status symbols. Positioned prominently on their person, the handbags that women sling over their shoulders or drape on their arms speak volumes as to who they are, or how they want to be perceived.

There are so many sought-after handbags featured in high-end boutiques, department stores, fashion publications and fashion blogs, but do you know the difference between a clutch and a wristlet, or a bowler and a tote? (Admittedly there were two shapes that I didn’t know), check out the glossary of handbags below:

      It’s funny I know there are different style of handbags, but I never used their actually terms. Since this post, going forward i’ll be using the actually term that applies to the style of handbag in question.
