If you want to keep your bag collection to a bare minimum and have only the few that you are sure you will need and use, you will need to have an everyday bag that will be your go-to when there are no special events. This can be a bag for the office that you can also use for casual days out with friends or for brunch out with someone special. It can be difficult to decide but here is a guide to help you choose the right bag.
- Size of the bag
Determine the amount of things you usually bring with you like your makeup kit and wallet to know how big your bag should be. Make sure that everything fits snugly and you won’t have difficulty in taking out your stuff nor forcing your belongings inside the bag. Also, bear in mind your body shape. A bag too large for a petite body will only make you look smaller and a bag too small for a full body can make you look bigger.
Make sure that the bag has everything you need, from the number and size of pockets, if you need them at all, to the length of the straps. Pockets can separate your things but a lot of pockets can have you rummaging in your bag for your wallet.
For a bag you plan on using every day, find something that is comfortable to carry and would not hurt your shoulders and back. This also means that you are comfortable with the style of the bag and the prints and colors it comes with and can use it with most of your outfits. When you find the right balance of comfort and style, then you might just have found your potential everyday bag.
