Choosing the Right Handbag for Your Shape and Size
Handbags can accentuate your look in many effective ways: adding a splash of style, a dash of color, pulling outfits together, adding texture to your look just to name a few.
But many people don't realize that the right handbag can actually help you look trimmer or shapelier! Did you know a handbag can flatter your shape almost as much as the right pair of pants?
There are some easy steps to take in order to choose a bag in proportion to your figure.
First, Consider the Shape
In general, it's best to stick with a shape that is the opposite of your body type. For example, if you are tall and thin, a more a slouchy, rounded hobo bag will compliment your figure. If you're short and voluptuous, you can play off opposites by choosing a handbag that is tall and rectangular or long and sleek (like a clutch).
As a general guideline, the rounder your figure, the more structured your bag should be. This doesn't mean that you have to choose a hard, angular box for a handbag: rectangular or square shapes in soft leathers or fabrics work quite nicely.

Next, Think About Scale
After choosing a shape to compliment your body type for maximum flattery, you should next consider the size of the bag so that it will be in proportion to your figure. It's all about scale here: a very small hand-held bag would be lost with a woman who is 6 feet tall and a size 18. And to look at the other extreme, a petite size 0 woman would look overwhelmed by an enormous slouchy bag.
A shoulder bag's length (where the bottom of the bag hits your body) will accentuate whatever part of the body it comes near. For example, a shoulder bag that ends around the hips will play up your hip width (the eye is drawn to the bag). Most women look great with a bag that hits mid-torso because it flatters the waist. Handbag styles that fit right under the arm at breast level will draw attention to that area.
Once you've determined the general shapes and sizes you should be looking for, it's very important to then choose handbags that also fit your personal style. If you tend to wear classics, don't go for flashy or trendy looks that will make you uncomfortable. And if you're a more vibrant dresser, don't choose plain handbags that won't make you happy. Your handbag will flatter you even more if you like it and are comfortable carrying it - your style will shine and so will you!
