Who Said Big Handbags Have to Be Boring?

By April Kerr

Lets face it, women love their handbags. Many men around the world will always be confused by this, they seem to have the ability to store everything they need in their inside pocket. Well, women have a lot more essential items than men, we have lipstick, mascara, perfume, purse, mobile phone, glossy magazines and the like. Handbags also have the ability to change the look of a whole outfit, bags come in all shapes and sizes, styles, materials and of course brands. If you are looking for a large yet trendy bag, you may want to have a look at these companies:


Chloe – Chloe has been around for a long time (since 1952) and has this canny ability to produce ranges of handbags which have women drooling – including celebs. A lot of handbags on the market just aren't practical – they can barely hold a single lipstick never mind all our other essential accessories. This is probably why the Chloe Paddington bags are often seen on the arm of a celebrity in the glossy mags.

Kate Spade – When Kate left college in 1986 she joined mademoiselle magazine and left in 1991 as senior fashion editor/head of accessories. Frustrated by the lack of fashionable yet practical bags she set out design her own. Since launching her range of "Kate Spade Handbags" in 1996 she has won many awards for her designs.

If you felt before a bit of a frump for carrying around a large handbag then you really needn't. Ditch your old bag and get a new one. There are a lot of styles which are very popular, even if you don't go for a designer brand. Search the internet for hobo, satchels, shoulder bags, totes, plus you can even get the most amazing array of diaper bag for fashionable mums.

    • Here are two more great bags that are so chic and fun. One is called Kara James (
      She has a new take on bags, in that the handles can be interchangeable. They look like very chic belts. You have to see them, to see how cute they are.
      Also, because large bags can also be big black holes, check out the Butler Bag. This unique bag has a tray inside the bag, that is unbelievalbly effective in keeping you organized, while the bag itself is really quiet stylish! You simply can NOT, mess up this bag if you try. Once you have one, you never want to carry any other bag.!
