Bags and wallets: the ideal complement to a good outfit

They are two of the most beloved accessories for women. They carry a wallet, keys, glasses, telephone, and more, but its charm exceeds its functionality. What is used, how to choose it, and how to carry it.

Wallets and bags are essential accessories for women’s clothing. Not only because of its usefulness to load and carry a wallet, cosmetics, keys, and other personal items but because, well combined, they are the ideal complement to a good outfit.

According to fashion experts, the wallets are, together with the shoes, the fetish objects of the flirtatious woman. They have the goodness of adding a personal touch and can add color and wave to a day of formal dress.

In this season, trends accept colors, sizes, and styles of varied varieties. To look in tune with what the catwalks send this winter, we don’t have to become rigid. Anything goes. That is why it is key to know which is the wallet or bag that best suits your style.

Tips for choosing the right portfolio

Whether by style or by color, the portfolio we choose says many of us. It counts if we are doing simplicity or if, on the contrary, we go through life with everything in tow. Whatever your preference, this season there are many variants to choose from. But it is important to know that there are some tips to follow and choose the ideal one for your body:

  • If you are a small structure, huge wallets or maxi bags are not recommended. They are disproportionate and can play against you when it comes to wearing your clothes.
  • If you are tall or large in structure, small bags end up losing.
  • The handbags are perfect to get it right. They do not take up space and are super comfortable.
  • Medium sizes go best with all figures and are the most functional. They adapt to all times of the day and have good interior capacity.
  • The forms must be complemented with those of your body. If your texture is rounded, a simple wallet that does not add volume is ideal. And if, on the contrary, you are more straight, the best are the wallets with rounded shapes.
  • If your bust is large, escape from the purses on your shoulder.
