The beginning of 18th century motivated women to wear clothes that were fitted well. This kind of transformation in the clothing of women is one aspect that triggered the emergence of handbags. Many theories also claim that the handbags were a result of World War II due to very many reasons.
Irrespective of the primary reason behind the emergence of handbags, you can’t ignore that it is an important fashion statement. It was the usage of different styles and patterns that created the concept of ‘bagology’. When you observe around you may find varied styles and patterns of handbags that are being used today.
Different handbags are used by different personalities. For instance, if you are someone who loves status and wish to come across as elite and superior, you will definitely want to hang your handbag on your elbow, and it will be medium to small in size. On the same lines, if you are a professional and love to give respect to your professional life, you are someone who will be found carrying a bigger bag, heavy enough to lift by hand, which may bend one shoulder.
Brown and black bags are the types that are often preferred by ladies who are slightly reserved. You may come across as a snob but once people start to get to know you, they will realize that they were mistaken initially. Similarly if you carry a handbag that is in the shape of a cigar box, you are someone who need not be told what to do and what not to.
