10 best shoulder bags in australia

Comfort meets style when it comes to the humble shoulder bag. Whether you're on the hunt for a gorgeous new work bag, something for your friend's upcoming wedding, or a party handbag, we've done the digging to bring you a roundup of our favourite 10 shoulder bags in 2022. Read on to find out more. 

What to look for in a shoulder bag?

When it comes to shopping for women's shoulder bags, there are a few things to consider: 

  • Colour: Consider when you want to wear the bag. If it's for everyday perhaps black shoulder bags are best for you. If it's just for parties, maybe you can have a little more fun with a bold coloured bag.
  • Size: Do you want to fit just your wallet in your handbag, or do you need extra space for sunnies, lipstick, your phone, and a few other staples?
  • Material: If you're buying a bag for the office then it's best to leave sequins at home. Something neutral and a little more professional will work for dayttime bags, whilst you can have some more fun with the material if you're shopping for a party handbag.
  • Length of shoulder strap: Consider how high on your body you want to wear your handbag? Just under your bra strap or a lot lower?
