Leather Hobo Handbag


What sets the leather hobo handbag apart from other bags is the casual and chic appearance. Not to mention, that they're durable and a little bit more luxurious-looking than other materials like for example suede and nylon. Typical hobo purses are medium to large-sized with a crescent shape and rounded corners.

The neat thing about them is that they're made of soft and flexible material that slouches when you put it down. It's the perfect handbag for the gal with laid-back bohemian style! However, you'll also find many classy styles that are more appropriate for office work.

A hobo bag goes great with relaxed jeans, simple dresses and tees. However you can look chic by wearing it with a sophisticated trench coat or black slacks (reminds you of dress pants) without coming out too strong and authoritative.

Let the hobo bag complement the occasion

Hobos that resemble like large slouchy sacks are better paired with casual outfits office settings.

If you want to wear it for formal occasions then opt for a smaller bag that is more structured, neutral and solid colored, reminding you of a classic tote bag.

You can of course "cross-mix" casual with classy, but if you want to look polished a classic trench coat looks better with a tailored hobo bag.

Be practical

If want to carry a hobo handbag when you're out traveling or just need a bag that you can stuff you're whole life in then opt for extra pockets and compartments inside and outside. (Or get a handbag organizer which you can organize your things inside the bag)

And if you really love the design and can see yourself with it for many years to come. So go for real leather which is durable and will last a whole decade if not longer!

I also suggest you to make your first one or two leather hobo handbag purchase a simple and neutral one. Like for example a solid black or brown color with minimal details. They'll go with all of your outfits - which makes them super cost-effective!
