A handbag or a tote can add lots of charm to the otherwise plain dressing style. Apart from being stylish and trendy, a handbag should be functional to meet the daily needs of a woman. Picking up the right colored tote is also important. Though printed bags are trendy, it is better to carry a single colored tote or handbag in case you are wearing a colorful and flashy costume. You can even add a few handbags that go well with the change of seasons. It is a wonderful idea to go with red in fall or green in spring. Black is one such color that goes well with all seasons. Handbags and tote bags are available in an array of materials and textures as well. From snake skin, to cow hide, to crocodile skin and jute and canvas there is something for everyone in this colorful and exciting world of handbags.
