Style Guide – Women’s Purses

A purse is a woman’s most important accessory. It carries all of her essentials, from money to credit cards to important notes and receipts. A purse is an accessory that is seen almost every day, and therefore it’s only right that it should be as stylish as its owner!

At Maxwell Scott Bags, we like to create purses that are as practical as they are elegant. With combinations of pockets, card slots and zipped compartments, our luxury leather purses are the perfect handbag companions. Handmade with love in the heart of Tuscany, our luxury leather products develop a beautiful patina with use, meaning that each purse gains its own unique personality over time.

When buying a purse, there are a few aspects you must consider to make sure the purse you buy is right for your needs.

For those who keep their lives in their purse, a larger design with multiple sections is sensible, as this allows you to keep everything to hand and also keep yourself organised. The Meleto ladies leather purse is spacious and stylish, featuring slots for cards, a pouch for coins and space for notes and receipts. Finished with a secure popper fastening, this purse is a timeless accessory that will hold everything you need.

The Giorgia is another large purse that has a similar capacity to the Meleto, featuring an interior zipped coin pocket and an outer zip for security. With 7 credit card slots and an extra 2 large slots for receipts and notes, this purse is perfect for the organised woman, and can even double as a clutch bag, taking you from work to dinner with ease.

For those who want the space but not the bulk of a larger accessory, a purse like the Betolle is perfect. One of our best selling leather purses and a great all-rounder, the Betolle features multiple slots and a clear plastic window perfect for photographs, travel cards and ID. An outer popper fastening ensures all of your belongings are kept secure within your purse.

If you prefer to keep your purse contents to a minimum or need a more compact purse to fit in a smaller handbag, we have a range of sleek, petite purses. Ideal for slipping into a handbag or clutch bag, the Fontanelle women’s leather purse is elegant and compact whilst still giving you space for your essentials. Classic in design with space for cards and notes as well as a zipped coin compartment, this purse is perfect for the woman with less to carry.

Once you’ve chosen the design of your purse, the next step is to choose its colour.

Many women like to match their purse to the colour of their handbag. Coordination can look chic and will pull an outfit together, however mixing and matching your leather colours can also look stylish. Black leather is a classic choice and always looks smart, whereas tan and chocolate leathers can be easily dressed down for a more casual look.
