Sales of leather bags have increased in recent years and it is easy to understand why. This handy container for life’s essentials has become the easiest canvas for fashion ideas, without the limitations of fitting a figure, foot, face, or hand!

Grab your leather bag without the need to worry about ‘does my butt look big in this?’, Or ‘will it fit me?’, While resting gently in your hand or arm, for instant satisfaction from the fit.

The leather bag will be the first garment in your wardrobe that reflects the current trends of the season. For example, last year there was a return to classic brown ’70s style leather bags, in stark contrast to last year which was flooded with black patent leather shoulder bags.

If purple is the color of the season, don’t expect a lot of purple outfits at rush hour, oh no! They will be purple leather bags, in every style, leather and finishes imaginable, carried over suits in banker-friendly colors.

But so many options can be overwhelming, so here’s the dilemma for someone looking for a leather bag: where do I start first? Start here…

Your life from Monday to Friday

Your life comes first, and your leather bag should fit this. Your first leather bag will fit into your Monday through Friday routine. If you have a job, is it creative or corporate? Do you have to take home paperwork and a laptop?

A large shoulder bag that fits over the shoulder is appropriate for carrying light paperwork. If you are always on the go, be sure to choose a simpler style leather bag with fewer metal parts, such as a laptop bag, as it will be lighter.

On the other hand, if you only need to carry the essentials vegan leather handbags, go for elegance with a leather tote bag. Leather handbags are the smartest and perfect accessories for a job where appearance is very important, such as in a corporate environment.

A less formal job requires a more relaxed style leather bag. The creative worker tends to travel a lot for inspiration, so go for a leather tote bag. This will comfortably fit the entire body and will leave your hands free for minimal restriction.

You are most likely still in college, and this is where the leather bag becomes most essential! Large leather laptop bags and crossbody bags will be the most practical option for a student as they are specially designed to carry a heavy load.

Full-time moms have the most hands-on work, so it’s important that they feel special too. Keep your outfit low-key and add something special with your accessories. Any leather bag can be your choice, including very glamorous styles, but like Elle Macpherson, we really like the leather bag in the school look.

Lastly, if you’re lucky enough to be retired or don’t have to work, greater freedom offers more options for your accessories. Choose a stylish leather tote bag or a medium-sized leather shoulder bag, which will look modern.
