Let’s talk about fashion a little bit. Fashion and personality. I know how much you love your handbag. I do, too.
How do you feel when you carry it?
I feel very confident. I can say that I’m feeling secure and awesome.
There are lots of people who don’t want to believe in this. I mean what’s there to believe in?
You decide to go somewhere. You “hop” in your favorite clothes. Take your favorite handbag and you are gone!
Even if this seems very simple for us, the body language experts have their own theory.
Carrying a handbag is not a random decision. It says a lot about your personality.
According to Kathlyn Hendricks, a Ph.D., there is a hidden message how every woman out there is carrying her handbag.
With that being said, let’s check out and see if you can find yourself here.
Kathlyn Hendricks has a theory about 6 possible carrying ways.
I’m always carrying my handbag in my hand. Like a briefcase. You can check it out below.
How do you carry your handbag?
#1 Wearing it over 1 shoulder and keeping the bag close to your body
If you are this person, you are probably practical and driven by utilitarian motives.
Hendricks explained that this points out to the woman’s freedom of movement and independence.
The priority is put on the getting all things done the proper way!
#2 Wearing it over one shoulder with the bag swinging freely
This way of carrying the handbag lights up the ease and functionality over display.
You always tend to pick more practical ways of achieving the goals. That’s your priority over brand/shape/fabric/quality/color.
#3 Worn cross-body with your bag in front of you
Per Hendricks: “This style of bag-wearing often indicates a more cautious personality, someone who is reticent or shy. Your downward gaze and slightly folded up body posture support the suggestion of a slightly defensive personality.”
#4 Worn cross-body with the bag behind the body
If you are wearing your handbag like this, you are a straightforward warrior. Your goal is always on your mind and you won’t stop until you get it.
The bag is a clear image of your independent self-image.
#5 Wearing it in crook of elbow
This way of carrying your handbag says a lot about confidence. You are telling the world that you don’t need to use your both hands to carry the load.
You are basically ready to move the world if you are asked to do that.
#6 Holding it in hand
Carrying it in your hand means importance of a woman’s job. That means you always tend to tell people how secure and confident you are in what you do.
Even if the bag is too heavy sometimes. You keep carrying it like it’s the easiest thing in this world.
Yep. Some women don’t want their hands to be busy carrying around a handbag.
This shows how well you organize things. You have even organized someone to handle all the every-day issues such as a tight schedule or money.
