How to wear a handbag with short handles?

I have one bag with short handles ( this one) and I have to wear it in the crook of my arm, which leads to cramps in my arm (lol) and makes me look a bit... I don't know, arrogant. I don't think others look arrogant wearing that, it depends on the person ofcourse, but I think it looks arrogant on me.

Girls (and guys with a handbag), how do you wear a handbag with short handles?

  • Also depends on the size of the bag. If the bag is big then I would hold it in the crook, but if it's small id probably hold it down by my side. Saying that though, I never have a small handbag, so I literally always carry mine on my arm. Personally I hate carrying handbags any other way. I don't think it looks arrogant :)

  • That's the only way to wear it. Or you can just hold the handles and keep the bag near your upper thighs. This is exactly why I don't buy bags with short handles. I -hate- how people look with them. Super snobby looking for the most part.
