The most common purse style is the traditional shoulder strap bag. This bag is carried on the shoulder, with a medium to long drop on the strap. It is convenient for everyday use as it keeps your hands free. However, if you carry a lot of weight in your handbag, this type of bag can cause shoulder pain, so be sure to lighten your purse as much as possible when carrying a bag with a shoulder strap.

If you do carry a lot of weight in your purse, you might consider a backpack style bag. These bags have become very popular in the last few years and come in many different styles, sizes and shapes. The backpack style handbag is carried on the back, on both shoulders, allowing you to balance the weight of your bag, while keeping your hands free. Be sure to determine the size of the bag body that you need (see Part 2 of this series).

If  you’re going to be in a crowded place, a crossbody style bag is a good option. The strap on a crossbody handbag is normally very long and is worn diagonally across the chest. This makes it very difficult for someone to steal or pickpocket your bag. This type of handbag typically has a small to medium size body making it perfect for a day at the amusement park.

Going out for the evening? Choose a clutch purse or wristlet purse. These bags are small, with just enough room for the essentials.

A clutch is carried in the hand, while a wristlet is more versatile and can be carried in the hand or hung from the wrist. A wristlet clutch is the perfect choice for an evening on the town as it can be kept with you at all times, without getting in the way.

Another option that many women are choosing is the waistbag or “fanny pack”. These bags are carried around the waist, making them hands free and easily accessible. Waistbags can be found in the traditional black leather, as well as many different colors and fabrics, making them stylish and convenient.
