Isn't it great, when what is currently in fashion is also

comfortable and practical? Totes and hobo purses are this year's

favorites. Find out how to select the best one for you.

A tote is an open-top bag that has straps or handles; you can

wear it over your shoulder or carry in your hand. A hobo bag is a

crescent-shaped bag that hangs from your shoulder. Both are

large, so you can fit a lot of stuff in them.

You can get totes and hobo bags in just about any color. Bright-

colored handbags are hot this year, but bear in mind that, if you

have a large, brightly colored bag, it will attract attention.

What I mean is that you don't want your bag to overpower your

outfit or face. However, if you wear a plain outfit in a classic

color, like black, grey or white, you can brighten it up with a

green or orange purse.

The most popular materials are luxurious leather, leatherette,

canvas, linen, tapestry and straw. Combinations of leather and

fabric also look very stylish, but are more affordable than


Hobo bags and totes also come with beautiful prints on them;

totes that feature celebrities are particularly popular, just

now. Animal lovers can get totes that have adorable pictures of

pups or kittens on them. You can even order a custom made tote

with a photo of your own pet - all you need is to provide a photo

of reasonable quality.

Most of us think of a tote as a casual bag for shopping, but you

can also get elegant, stylish varieties. If it is leather, suede,

or a leather-fabric combination, a tote can be a good companion

for a work outfit.

Most hobo bags are not expensive. If you do a little bit of

comparison shopping online, you will find fabric and leather-like

bags for under 50 dollars, and quality leather for under a

hundred. That is, of course, for non-designer bags - but they are

of good quality, all the same. If you are after Gucci, Fendi or

Prada totes and hobo purses, though, expect to pay a few hundred
