Fall Trend #2: Handheld Bags

Fall Trend #2: Handheld Bags
2011/08/16 Better Blueprint

We've gone through hobos, totes, clutches, etc but this fall it's all about the semi/structured handheld bag this is all business and total feminine.  They're hitting the runways and retailers everywhere (check out Neiman Marcus), but hold up just a minute to catch a few of our tips to make sure this is the trend for you and you rock it right:

  • The top handle drop should be between 5 1/2" to 7" (not comfortably placed on the shoulder)
  • Deep, rich tones and textures that will work for fall and winter, and for seasons to come
  • Handheld bags are not convenient for Saturday errands and shopping because it takes away one of your hands!
  •  While a larger handbag is nicer, consider how heavy it willbe once filled!
