Many Handbag Styles

You may be looking for an elegant leather satchel or a unique and eco friendly straw or cloth bag or even a trendy and modern sequined bag. You can find many handbag styles and choose from them to complement your personality and add charming to your outfits.

Backpack handbag is a larger bag which is supposed to be carried like a backpack. This bag style features two straps which you can either sling the bag on one or both sides of your shoulder.

A barrel bag on the other hand is cylindrical in shape as the name suggests. You can find exciting handbags that are narrow and resemble a French bread loaf. These bags are named as Baguettes.

For those who do believe in carrying too much staff with them, there are attractive and colourful coin purses and clutch bags to choose from. In contrast to a handbag which has straps to be slung on the shoulder, clutch bags do not have any handles or straps. They are carried under the arm and are mainly used as evening bags to carry just a few trinkets and cosmetics.

For those who are not fond of handbags dangling from their shoulders and also want their hands to be free, cross body bags are the ideal choice. These bags can be worn across the body leaving the hands free.

Ideal for those who take part in a lot of outdoor activities such as hiking and running, Fanny pack also known as the waist pack is the ideal choice. This bag can be worn on the waist and is very useful for carrying small, essential items.

One of the interesting handbag styles is the Hobo. Hobos are shoulder bags with a long shoulder strap. They are scooped in the centre and are slouchy to look at. Evening clutch bags made of hard case and decorated with attractive sequins, beads and crystals are known as Minaudiere.

Many people use handbags to carry a lot of items such as appointment books, coin purses, wallets, makeup and other personal items. Organizer bags are ideal for this purpose as these bags feature a lot of convenient pockets and compartments.

Handbags which feature a top closure, a flat bottom and a top carry handle are known as satchels. The side profile of a satchel is usually triangular. Wristlet on the other hand is a small wallet or a clutch that is attached to a small loop that can go around your wrist.

Style Enhancing Long Legs

Here is a guide to the clothes that you can use to enhance the length of your legs and ensure that you feel great about yourself.

· Dresses or skirts. These can be your best friends if you utilise them correctly. You can wear A-line skirts that have horizontal patterns on them as this draws the eye outward, as opposed to up and down. You can also wear skirts that have got dropped waistlines and that are pleated. Any pattern or style that is advised against for a petite person, can be worn by a tall person.

· Hemlines. When it comes to picking out the right dress, the hemline is important. Floor length will highlight how long your legs are, whereas skirts that finish above the knee or in the middle of the calf will give a nice balance to your general figure.

· In terms of pants, you should opt for capri pants, as well as three quarter pants. These are great for breaking the severe lines that full length pants can sometimes create, as well as exaggerated height.

· You should make sure that you wear boots in the winter, as these will also help make your legs look amazing. Any boot that you can tuck a pants leg into is a boot that you can wear.

· If you are wearing other shoes, you can go for shoes that are bright, which will draw attention mostly to your feel and ankles, as opposed to the whole length of your legs.

Dress Your Age

Some style basics for our oldies:

Style stays, Fashion fades. Rather than chasing fluttering trends, men of the growing age should stick to one general look in which they are most comfortable. For example, if you feel good in a Blazer- Jeans pair then stick to it, don’t change it just because you are growing.

In accessories, a subtly patterned tie is always appropriate for a man of mid-age.

Lastly, White running shoes are never recommended for old people unless they are out for running and for that also they can prefer some black or dark hues Nike.

Style don’ts for our oldies:

Skinny Jeans: No matter you are skinny, you should ignore those slim fitted jeans. You are not a singer from Green day; You will end up looking silly wearing those tight pants.

Logo/ Graphic Printed t-shirts: After a certain age say 50, anything that broadly displayed on your chest, makes you look desperate so avoid it.

Hoodies: A big No for all oldies.

Long Hair: If you are losing your hair, any hairstyle longer than ½ inches is not preferable.

Blue Jeans and running shoes: This is my personal dislike. If you are out for running, wear running shoes and if you are out for work then wear some grown-up shoes.

Now Let’s head towards some style tips to look best in 50s. Here they are:

Keep your style colour-blocked

It doesn’t say that you should retire all the colours from your wardrobe but go for some monotonous tones. Try to avoid bright acid colours and pastel shades and go for some classic hues like camel, light grey, navy blue, forest green and dark red. If you have all grey hair, then wearing all grey outfits will look fabulous. This is the most recommended professional fashion for offices.

Give farewell to your cargo pants and shorts

Most of you must be thinking it is obvious, but it requires repetition- no cargos, ever. Though they are comfortable and convenient, think about all those pockets that come in handy, but they are not for you-big daddies.

Make white t-shirts your regular wear

Yes in the old age anything in white can be classy. You can carry a white t-shirt on any occasion but make sure it is in pristine condition that means cleaned, ironed and properly folded. Otherwise, you may look like just slipping out of bed. Trust me: it is not at all suitable for a dignified old man.

Know your body shape and stick to a single tailor

Some men are lucky enough who get effortlessly fit in those store-bought suits, but the majority of such men is very rare. So if you are not one of those lucky ones then do yourself a favour and get your baggy pants and suits cuffed and hemmed properly. Ill-fitted clothes are not at all good for you and will show off your growing age. Wear clothes that fit just right and dress like a multimillionaire.

Don’t put on denim on denim

When this is an always in look for young hipsters, but for men over 50s, it’s a definite NO. If you are wearing jeans, then go for a casual button down and wear a simple T-shirt on top. A mix of denim and Chambray shirts with tanned brown Chinos is always best for men over 50. Denim jackets with any blue shaded jeans should not be worn for any occasion.

Lucky Hobo Bag

Leather Hobo Bags – As one might expect, these bags range from slouch styles to stash bags, and can be found in quite a number of sizes for different women’s needs. The colors for these bags include everything from bright and bold to warmer and traditional colors. Also included in this category of bags are styles that include patch bags, Boho styles and more.

Patchwork Hobos – Here is a fun category of bags and again these range broadly in looks and design. The most popular of these bags appears to be the “Diana Boho” hobo, a conglomeration of different fabrics, designs and colors. Personally a patchwork bag would not fit my own personal preferences but these are most definitely an exception – they’re gorgeous and perfect for ladies who have a desire for a more “earthy” or Bohemian style.

Theodora Hobo Bag – This specific bag seems to be looked for specifically than any other single style of bag in this lineup. It can be found in either leather or suede versions and also has a sort of Boho appeal to it, complete with “peace” charms. My favorite color with this bag is the “Bourbon” leather which is a darker shade of brown with just a hint of red.

Even though the list of Lucky Hobo Bag styles above are the most popular there are actually quite a number of different bags to choose from – sure to match just about any woman’s tastes and needs.
