Purses are an essential part of getting ready to go out. They provide a convenient place to hold everything that a woman might need to go out. They hold the wallet, the identification, make-up, feminine products, hair products and just about everything else that might be needed when out and about. With so many purses on the market, it can be rather difficult to keep up with the trends and styles regarding purses. Learning how to pick the right purse for your body and style is essential to looking your best with that essential piece of fashion.
There are some rules that should be followed when picking out a purse. The first is to carry a purse that is appropriate for the place you are going to. You do not want to bring a big suitcase of a purse if you are going out dancing. The purse will only hinder your ability to move and will become heavy after a while. You also do not want to carry a clutch or wristlet if you plan on being out all day. This style of purse will not be able to carry everything you might need.
Other rules on the types of purses that a woman should carry involve the woman’s body shape and size. A small woman should never carry a large purse. This large purse will only overwhelm her and make her appear even smaller. A tall and large woman should not carry a small clutch or wristlet. This will only make the woman look bigger and taller. It will also de-emphasize the purse and not allow it to shine as the fashion piece that it was meant to be.
A woman who is more round in appearance should not carry a round purse. This would only make her appear rounder. Instead, she should carry a square or rectangular purse that has some actual shape. This will help to break that curvy shape and add more length and structure. She should also carry the purse away from her heaviest part in order to decrease the emphasis on that area.
Women who are skinny should not carry long and rectangular purses. This will make it appear that the woman is even taller and squarer than she is. Instead, she should consider carrying a rounder bag. She should carry the bag near her waist to bring the eye to her smaller waist. If she is light on the top, she may even carry the purse under her arm which will add bulk to that region.
Color is not of a small consequence when picking out a purse. Unless you have plan of purchasing every color purse under the sun, picking a purse that is a bright or bold color can be a bad thing. Having a pop of color is good, but keep that pop is a classic color such as purple, blue or red. Purses that are great for year round use include those purses that act as a neutral, tan, black, silver or navy.
Lighter colored purses should be carried during the summer months. This is because the lighter color purses are more likely to fit in with the bright and light clothing that most people wear during the summer. Darker colored purses should be worn during the winter months as they will fit with the bulkier and heavier outfits that are worn in the colder months. These are guidelines though, and not set laws. It is possible to wear a lime green purse in the dead of winter and a black purse in the summer.
The number one thing to remember about purse shopping is to buy a purse that fits you and your lifestyle. Do not purchase a small purse if you are then going to hate it because you cannot fit everything you need in it. Purses and fashion are for your pleasure, and if the purse is not a pleasure to use, then do not use it. Buy what makes you happy, but also makes you look good and feel confident.
