As each occasion demands a type of bag, we have sizes, shapes and colors for all tastes. That is why we have prepared a list of 10 types of bags for women for every occasion.

1. Baguette bag.

The baguette bag is a small bag with a handle to carry under the arm. Hence its name, in clear allusion to the famous loaf of French bread.

2. Bucket or sack bag.

The bucket or sack bag is very easy to recognize by its sack shape . They generally have a cylindrical design, although we can also find it in less defined forms. Regardless of the model, all sack-shaped bags share a firm base, reminding us that it is inspired by a basket or candy box. You can carry it as a handbag or as a crossbody bag using its strap.

3. Basket bag.

The basket bag is an iconic accessory and a must-have for the spring-summer season. A good basket made of materials such as raffia, wicker, straw or jute always adds a plus of style that enhances any look. Because the contrast that is created between these materials and the different fabrics creates a very elegant and at the same time relaxed French-style country air.

4. Clutch or pouch bag.

The clutch bag and the pouch bag are not the same type of bag, although they are very similar and it is very easy to confuse them. We group them, but here we explain the differences.

The clutch bag is a small bag that is used to carry the essentials on a special occasion or event , although some people take it to go shopping or spend an afternoon with friends. It can be carried both by hand and on the shoulder if the bag has a strap. It can also be called pochette (in French)

The pouch bag is also a small bag , but its origin comes from toiletry bags. They are usually flat and can have a small strap to hang on the wrist. They can be used both to go out on errands and on a special occasion.

5. Crossbody or crossbody bag.

Crossbody bags , also called crossbody or shoulder bags , are the most practical bags, since they allow us to have both hands free. This type of bag is used to wear on more informal occasions and casual looks. In reduced size they are also usually worn for special occasions or at night. Within the crossbody bags we can find clutch or bucket bags.

6. Shoulder bag.

Shoulder bags , also called shoulder bags , are characterized by carrying a main handle designed to carry the bag on the shoulder as its name indicates, although on many occasions, the design with an optional handle is chosen to turn it into a shoulder bag . It is one of the most practical and easy to carry bags, perfect for any time of the day or night due to its variety of materials and shapes.

7. Hobo bag.

The hobo bag is a crescent-shaped bag attached at each end by a strap that may or may not be adjustable. It is characterized by being generally a large bag made of soft and flexible materials such as leather or suede, which, when worn over the shoulder, tends to collapse and fold in on itself.

8. Backpack.

The backpack could not be missing from this list, the most popular model ideal for transporting anything, whether it is to go to the gym, go on a trip or for the day. At Ferent you can find backpacks that become hobo or shoulder bags, ideal and versatile for both him and her.

9. Fanny pack.

The fanny pack , bumbag or fanny pack is a type of small bag that is accompanied by a belt or strap to adjust it to the waist or hip, although many also use it as a crossbody. It is an accessory that, apart from being in trend for a long time, is very practical as it allows us to have both hands free.

10. Shopper bag or tote bag.

The shopper bag is a maxi bag. A large bag with handles ideal for shopping or going to work. The tote bag is very similar to the shopper , it is a bag with a shape similar to a trapezoid and with a large capacity.
