A bag is an integral part of your outfit. Once you have chosen the appropriate outfit for the occasion, one question remains: Which bag would go best with the rest of your outfit and also suit the occasion?
To help you answer this question, we have listed various bags and the occasions for which they are most appropriate.
Tote, meaning “to carry”, are big long-lasting bags which can be used to carry numerous objects at a time. The main feature of this bag is the open and roomy interior. This makes tote bags ideal for shopping and for other occasions where you need a bag with high capacity. They are spacious enough to be used as laptop bags.
Since they come in many sizes and materials, tote bags can also be used to make a classy style statement. Their versatility makes Tote bags an appropriate choice for most occasions.
These bags are the best to use for your body as they evenly distribute the weight on your body. This is one advantage it has over cross-body or messenger bags. They also free up your hands so that you can do something more important than just holding onto your bag.
In addition to having a capacity like that of Tote bags, Backpacks can be used to keep all your stuff organized as well, thanks to the provision of many pockets. For someone who goes to the gym directly before or after office, one could keep all the gym gear in one pocket and office equipment like a laptop in another pocket. These bags also come in handy on short trips and hikes.

Characterized by a flat bottom, Bucket bags can be thought of as a smaller, tidier and chicer version of a tote bag. These bags, just like tote bags, have a spacious interior.

The drawstring closure makes sure you don’t spill the contents, while also maintaining the ease of putting in or removing stuff from the bag.
