Black leather handbags are a wardrobe staple, much like the famed Little Black Dress. When pressed for time or in confusion over which bag to carry, just sling one of your black handbags over your shoulder and be ready to go. Designer handbags can cost you an arm and a leg, but with the look that they create, they are definitely worth the money.

Ladies all over world will testify that black handbags go well with almost everything. They can create the boardroom killer look. They are also conducive to the chic fashionista look. For the less glamorous occasions, like grocery shopping, choose a larger tote that will swallow everything from toiletries to vegetables. These go well with every occasion. You can carry a black handbag to work or even to a funeral.

Leather handbags come in a variety of designs and colors. Out of the vast variety of colors, black and tan stand out. The leather can be hard calf leather, soft calf leather, sheepskin leather or if you can spend more on snake or crocodile leather. The trends in designer handbags are always changing. However, some classics like the beloved Hermes-Birkin never go out of fashion. Established fashion houses like Gucci and Dolce & Gabbana usually have some designs for sale. There are numerous styles from which to choose. You can go for the rocker chic boho bags, totes, sacks, satchels, down bags, drawstrings and even less feminine but equally fashionable messenger bags.

As mentioned above, such handbags go well with every look and occasion. However, if you buy too big a bag, you may end up messing stuff up inside it. Awkward straps can decrease comfort. Also, while on handbag shopping spree, try to spend money in a justified manner. When you go to buy a handbag, do not just look for brand names. Several times, local artisans deliver what a master couturier cannot. Seek out a bag that is the perfect size, has enough zippers and sections and is easy to carry. Lastly, if you aim at the celebrity look, make sure that your handbag blends perfectly with your attire instead of standing out awkwardly.
