I want a handbag this winter. A handbag to carry around with some new boots, a snuggly sweater or a sleek pea coat, and some dark wash jeans. A nice black bag would be perfect for that. The only problem is that I don’t know if I should get a structured handbag or a loose handbag. There are two bags I’ve looked at from H&M that I’m sure are the final candidates for my first handbag. I’m going to talk about what I like and don’t know about them and then you can help me decide which one would look best.
This is the first handbag I’ve looked at.
I absolutely love the silhouette of this bag. It’s nice and sturdy and won’t start sagging all over the place. The handles also stand up on their own and won’t fall over when you stop holding them. This bag would offer more of a chic look and I could see it being worn with dress shoes instead of boots. It’s not that I don’t like the hardware color, it’s just that I prefer silver. I also don’t like that double zipper. I just want one giant place to put my things with some pockets to keep it organized.
This bag can be found here on H&M for $39.
The next bag we’ll be talking about is a bit on the loose side.
This handbag looks nice because it’s not structured. It would help to give a winter outfit a more snuggly look. I’d love to casually sling this over my arm while shopping. I just don’t like how it would be difficult to keep my things organized in it. It seems like everything would just be moving around and getting messed up. That is not something I’d want to throw my phone in. The $15 price difference on this one from the last one also makes it appealing.
This handbag can be found here on H&M for $24.
Lastly, we’ll be looking at another structured handbag.
I like this one for the crocodile skin pattern. It’s also very minimalistic in only showing the hardware that keeps the handles in place. Speaking of that hardware, it makes it look like the handles might fall over when I put the bag down and I don’t like that much. Though, It’s chic and it goes well with the outfit I described above.
This handbag can be found here on H&M for $39.
I like the first handbag that I can wear with dress shoes, the loose one that gives that war and snuggly winter look, and the minimal one that’s as chic as the first. It’s just that I have to go to the store and see which one looks best.
Which one do you think I should get? Let me know in the comments below.
