The Five Handbag Shapes Every Woman Should Own

An interesting fact or two! The average handbag weighs over 3lb and women own seventeen at any one time. Most women agree that these five styles are essential must-haves for any staple wardrobe.

BACKPACK
Hands-free, fun and practical, the backpack is perfect for adventurous days out. We love 'Angel' by Visconti which is super-stylish and has plenty of pockets to organise contents efficiently. From the Atlantic Collection, Angel comes in soft, smooth leather £71.99.

TOTE
A tote bag that you can take anywhere is an absolute boon. 'Bellstone' by Catwalk Collection is office-smart yet highly practical and is great for either work or play. There are multiple pockets for blackberry or i-phone, pens, business cards, calculator, kindle or i-Pad plus there's also room for the usual make-up bag, purse, glasses case, keys and A5 diary. Made from crisp-crunch vintage leather, what more could you ask for? £69.95.

CROSS-BODY
One of the best inventions ever, the cross-body bag is useful for virtually any situation life can throw at you. Festival-goers, dog-walkers, mums with kids in tow and seasoned globe-trotters all appreciate the advantages of the cross-body bag which leaves your hands free for other important activities. Othello 2057 by Gigi really ticks the box. £34.95.

SMALL GRAB BAG
Neat and petit is the order of the day as an accompaniment to a wedding outfit, cocktail dress or evening gown. The two-tone colours on Catwalk Collection's Milan Bags make for the perfect accessory. £44.95.


HOLDALL
Suitable for anything from a weekend away to an after work gym session, you can't go wrong with a leather bag that will wear well. Choose a vintage style man's bag such as Ashwood's 'Harry' Holdall. £129.95.
