I would prefer a boy for a first bag between the two! I feel like you can wear it casually and out for dinner dates/parties/girl's night out, and I've even seen people wear it to weddings..! I just loovveeee my boys hehe.

Hello [emoji4]
I bought my burgundy boy bag first then my medium red coco handle, I love both as they serve completely different purposes - and I was v lucky to get the boy before all the price increases.
Maybe go to the boutique and try them both out? Then you can see which suits your style better [emoji4][emoji4][emoji4]
Good luck in choosing and can't wait for a reveal [emoji5][emoji5][emoji5]

Boy... I am not a fan of the coco handle at all. I also agree that the boy has potential to be used for various occasions including day to night. The coco handle seems less able to do this.

Another vote for the boy! Although, I am looking at adding a coco handle in the future [emoji6]

I have both and I think you should own a Boy first. It is my most used Chanel bag. I feel that Coco Handle is more formal-looking so the use is more limited.

Thanks for the replies so far I tried on a turquoise boy and a coco handle. The turquoise boy is nice but it didn't capture my heart the coco did. I'm more of a TOP handle n strap kind of girl and coco no matter what Colour I try in, black, blue, light blue Python, green, I can feel that skip in the heartbeat(am I even making sense) I will upload pictures of the boy and coco handle soonest.

Guys, Thank you so much for your input. I decided I gravitate towards classy and elegance. Coco Handle speaks more ladylike and its rather me. Finally after waiting for some time, I decided to solidify my decision. I wished I could get a red but it wasn't available in my local boutique. Red in pictures show up with a strong orange tone but Im more of a dark red person. Hopefully, my decision is right. I am still thinking of owning a chevron style irridescence boy next time.
