The Style of Carrying Your Handbag Can Say Much about Your Personality

While you are dumping stuff in your handbag and running to work, or going to university or for shopping, do you even realize that the way in which you are holding your beloved handbag can reveal much about your personality traits? Yes, so is proved by experts of body language.

As per body language experts, a freely swinging bag indicates primary focus on functionality and ease over display. If you keep the bag closed and buckled, in front of your body, you are allowing passerby to notice the brand, fabric, etc. of your bag but this does not sound practical.

Do you wear your bag over single shoulder, keeping it closely to your body?
If you do, by nature you are quite practical. Your motives are utilitarian. You love your freedom and its movements. You do your things by yourself and do not get it done by others. While these traits are true for all women carrying their bags in the style explained, it is specifically true for those women, who use smaller bags in this style.

Do you wear it the cross body way

Cross body way is keeping your bag right on your body front. When you place your belonging in front of someone, it is a form of weaponry. This shows that you are more of a cautious person or also someone who is shy or reticent. You will often find celebrities carrying their bags in this style, primarily to avoid the paparazzi.

This clearly indicates you are a bold and independent woman. You love your freedom and are not really much apprehensive about anything.

Few bags are so small in size that this is the only way to carry them. But other bags come with straps, but some women still prefer to hold them by their hands. You know how to balance things well in life and take your decisions smartly. You know your priorities well and are self-independent.

Or do you carry it by your elbow

Or do you carry it by your elbow?
If yes, your first priority is your position and status in life. Basically, you are operating only one hand to carry the bag or anything of the size of that bag. You do not require both your hands to do things in life. This goes back to those days when men carried women’s bags. You also like to show off the brand of your bag.

Or you don’t like to carry a bag itself

Or you don’t like to carry a bag itself?
Not carrying one at all points out a status where people handle day to day issues like schedule and money. You are a self assured person and mostly rely on your staff.

We are sure you could relate to one of the above. And if not, you are as endangered as the style in which you carry your bag!
