"Every now and then a trend comes along that works not only as a directional style statement, but as one with actual functionality”, said Vogue on large handbags - and it's true. Not only do large bags look great – and are so on trend – using a supersize bag means you really can bring those spare shoes or that extra make up (or even another outfit for the evening!?).
Having a large bag is now your staple item and can make any outfit look glamorous. But can a large bag cause damage? Divahandbags.co.uk have confirmed that over 50% of adults today are in pain due to oversized bags or clothes which do not fit. As the more we put in our handbags, the heavy it gets, putting strain on our shoulders and arms. However, super sized bags can still be enjoyed and worn as a fashion item – but make sure you don't over fill the bag or use it everyday to prevent damage to your body. Although as winter has now creeped in (although I think it has been here since last year as we didn't seem to have a summer) we need larger bags to fill them with hats, scarves and gloves proving an oversized bag is your must-have winter accessory - when used in moderation!
Many designers have supersize bags available in their A/W 2012 collection. A popular supersize bag includes the Marc Jacobs burge box satchel bag. Why not check out our over-sized selection of handbags which don't break the bank!
