Terms to Know About Handbags
The following are some important terms to know when searching for handbags.
Baguette: Baguettes are named after a loaf of French bread because of their slim, rectangular shape. These are smaller handbags.
Barrel: Barrel bags are cylindrical handbags that usually have longer straps to hang the purse from the shoulder.
Bucket: Bucket bags are, of course, shaped like buckets. These medium or large bags have drawstring closures at the top, and the straps are longer so they can hang from shoulder.
Clutch: Clutches resemble large wallets or pocketbooks more than they resemble purses. They are strapless, thin, and are usually rectangular. Clutches are perfect for carrying the essentials – money, identification, and credit cards – for a night out. Wristlets are similar to clutches but they have a large carrying loop on one corner.
Cross-body: Cross-body purses have a long, adjustable strap. The strap is set on one shoulder and reaches across the body to the bag, which rests against the opposite hip. The bag portion of these purses is often thinner and rectangular.
Hobo: Hobo bags are shaped like crescents. They typically have handles or shorter straps and a zipper at the top.
Messenger: Messenger bags are large handbags with a single adjustable strap. The strap should be long enough to sling the bag across the body. Traditionally, messenger bags have a large flap over the opening.
Satchel: Satchels are shaped like bucket bags, but satchels have two handles and a zipper at the top. These handbags are actually styled after vintage doctors’ bags.
Tote: Totes are the simplest style of handbag. They are medium to large rectangular bags. They have an open top and two handles or straps.
