Choosing a handbag probably isn’t as difficult as finding the perfect pair of jeans, but did you know that handbag can flatter your body shape as well? It can also give your look added style and make, or break, your outfit. Try to choose a shape that is the opposite of your body type. If you are tall and thin, look for a slouchy, rounded hobo bag to compliment your figure. If you’re short and curvy, play off opposites by choosing a handbag that is tall and rectangular or long and sleek (like a clutch). The rounder your figure, the more structured your bag should be.  There are many popular handbag shapes to choose from, from totes, to hobo, satchels, or a clutch. Also keep in mind the size of the bag. It is should be in proportion to your figure. For example, a woman who is a size 2 would look overwhelmed by a large, satchel handbag. Try handbags on in stores, in front of a mirror. And, remember, don’t be tempted to buy a bag based on the latest trend. Try to choose a handbag that compliments both your body shape and style.
