Best Handbags (in India) for Women

by Chhavi Pathak | Last Updated


Do you know what is more difficult than putting together the perfect outfit? Finding the perfect handbag to go with it.

With literally millions of options to choose from, it can be a real hassle because ultimately there is a lot that goes into choosing a handbag that is ideal for you.

A handbag can only be perfect for you if it matches your overall aesthetic, has the right amount of space to fit your belongings, and does not compromise function for fashion and vice-versa.

Before you go scrounging the web or your neighbourhood store for the handbag that is suitable for you, take a look at the qualities that you should be looking for to make a well-informed judgement.

How to choose a handbag that is perfect for you?

What is perfect for one may or may not be perfect for another. Keeping this in mind, let us take a look at the attributes you need to consider to select the handbag of your dreams.

  • Size: The first thing you need to pay attention to is the size of the handbag. Selecting the ideal size for you pretty much boils down to the purpose you want the bag to serve.

    If you want to use the bag for carrying just the essentials then a handbag about the size of your hand would be ideal.

    However, if you want to carry more than just the bare minimum you have to consider a relatively larger alternative.

  • Comfort: Then you need to ensure that the handbag you select is comfortable.

    Make sure that the straps are not too big or too small to ensure that they sit perfectly on your body, and do not make carrying the bag difficult.

    After you have established the comfort level, you need to check if it has the appropriate amount of compartments / pockets as per your requirement.

  • Material: Then we move on to the type of material you want.

    You can decide to go with a comfortable super-soft leather bag, or an environment-friendly faux leather one, or you might wanna consider a chic canvas handbag, or even one made out of silk or velvet.

  • Color: Finally, you have to decide how versatile you want the bag to be, which implies choosing the colour either depending on your outfit, or going with colours which generally pair well with almost all outfits, like black or grey or beige.

    Lastly, you should pick the right style, which can either be occasion-specific, or something you can carry every day.

If you are still confused and do not know what to buy, take a look at our top picks for the best women's handbags in India.
