What is a top-handle handbag?

The defining quality of a top-handle handbag is the distinctive handle on the top of the bag. This type of handbag has been around for a long time because even the earliest handbag models featured a handle to carry them around. The modern top-handle handbag usually has only one or two handles. Compared to other handbag models, those handles are rather short, but Akris offers handbags with handles that have various lengths. You can find models with classic short handles that can be carried by looping them around the wrist, but you can also choose bags with longer handles that you can hang over your shoulder.

Complete your look with a top-handle handbag

In its classic form, with a short handle, the top-handle handbag is not worn hanging around the upper body or over the shoulder, but carried in the hand, or looped around the wrist or in the crook of the arm. Due to that, top-handle handbags are true statement pieces that will draw everyone’s attention and can be used to top off your outfit stylishly. Even though there are pieces with longer handles, the way they are carried is the most distinguishing quality of the top-handle handbag and adds a certain elegance to your appearance. For everyday life, it’s often more convenient to hang the bags over your shoulder or across your upper body, though. Because of this, most models can be equipped with slings or carrying straps.
