Lean on These Shoulder Bags for Your Carrying Needs
Here’s a bag you can always depend on. Resting loyally by your side, ready to hold whatever you need, shoulder bags are fit for a fashionable friendship. But just like your closest companions, these carry-alls are not created equal. Material marks the difference between where and what you should tote around.
Switch up your satchels with these four fabrics.
For grocery runs or picnics, a nylon shoulder bag is very dependable. They’re easy to fold up and stash within another bag for impromptu shopping.
Quick tip: If you tend to over pack, keep a nylon tote in your luggage. That way if you need to take some of the weight out, you have somewhere else to put it.
Sturdy and durable, a canvas shoulder bag is functional like nylon, but stronger and more stylish. Consider one for your beach bag.
Quick tip: If something spills on your canvas bag, don’t submerge it in water. The dye from the handle or bag itself can bleed. Opt for spot cleaning instead.
Too precious for food-packing and errands, a leather shoulder bag should be reserved for your basic items: cell phone, wallet, keys and makeup.
Quick tip: When choosing a leather bag, pay particular attention to the strap. A thicker one will rest better on your shoulder and be more comfortable throughout the day.
Soft and pretty, suede shoulder bags are especially delicate. Vulnerable to damage, but too stylish to avoid, wear one when you’re going somewhere special.
Quick tip: If you want a bag that will stay nice for awhile, go for a darker shade of suede. The material tends to dirty easily.
Time to perk up your purse collection. Reliable and stylish, you can’t go wrong with a shoulder bag.
