Tote, Hobo, Clutch? Which one is it?

Have you noticed all the different types of bags and all the different names for them? I know everyone (especially me!) wants to at least look like they totally know what they are talking about, but sometimes it’s confusing. God forbid we refer to a bag incorrectly, that would be embarrassing.

So, here’s the difference:

Tote: The term tote means ‘to carry’. A tote bag is inspired by a shopping bag, which is sturdy and rectangular with an open top and two handles. The inside may have zip compartments. A tote is generally held in your hand or carried on your forearm or elbow.

 
Clutch: A small purse that is carried by the hand or tucked under your upper arm. No shoulder straps, although some come with detachable shoulder straps as an option or a wristlet loop at the end of the bag.

Hobo: Single shoulder strap. Worn on the shoulder. Shape of bag is normally large and slouchy.
The hobo usually a large unstructured bag with a slouchy posture and curving/half-moon shape with a long strap designed to wear over the shoulder. Hobo bags are made out of soft, flexible materials and tend to slouch. These bags are considered to be part of the Bohemian/boho-chic trend.

The Beanie – Hot or Not?

I was flicking through a magazine the other day and noticed that everyone is wearing beanies – and they look HOT HOT HOT! 

I personally prefer the baggier style in a neutral colour… or purple – I heart purple. 

The Beanie

The girls have been rocking this look and the guys, well they have outdone themselves! Wow. I’ve just been drooling over them all while googling these images! 

I am absolutely rating the beanie look – totally working and totally sexy!
