There are various types of shoulder bags for the modern woman. They vary in size, use, and brands. Each one is perfect for a specific setting. Read on to learn more about them.

The crossbody handbag

This is a small to medium size handbag that has a long strap. The strap is hung over the opposite shoulder so it can flow across the body. It is a good choice of bag to pick when you know that your hands will be mostly occupied during your day. Common brands are Chanel, Gucci and Sole Society.

The structured tote bag

This is a medium to large size handbag that has short, looped handles and a long shoulder strap. It is the right bag to use while going to work. This is because it is large and roomy enough to hold papers, files, a laptop and other work related items. Common brands are Ralph Lauren, Prada and Louis Vuitton.
