If you are going to the office, you cannot definitely wear a cocktail dress or bring a beach bag. Because you have to maintain a certain degree of professionalism, you are expected to dress accordingly. Hence, your bags should also scream neat and not flashy. They should not be too big or too small. Black, grey and brown are safe colours but do not be afraid to use subtle shades of red, yellow, purple and even orange.

Going somewhere? If you are going to travel, then you still need a handbag that will hold all your stuff and keep your hands free to pull your luggage. Get a cross body sling or a messenger bag. These handbags are convenient and very practical.

Let us not forget ethnic bags which come in beautiful designs, patterns and colours. You can pair them with your ethnic motif clothes and although you probably won't get an identical bag, just make sure that the patterns and colours do not clash.
