Just a general and fast poll to see what the majority of tPF'ers prefer! Do you typically like your bags Structured, or Slouchy? Which draws you in more often?

I like structure. I have a bag that's so slouchy it collapses into a puddle when I set it on a counter - honestly it's a little embarrassing! LOL My bag doesn't have to be heavily structured but I do like it to be able to hold it's shape.

I like it slouching = soft = comfortable to carry. For work I'd go structured though, just because it looks more professional

Currently I've been gravitating toward slouchy hobos, but I have structured bags in my collection that I love too, like my MJ Stams and Chanel reissue. It kinda depends on my mood and if I want to juxtapose the style of my bag and clothes. I normally dress really casual, so sometimes I like to carry something structured to mix it up.

For work and school I use structured but I prefer to own slouchy bags. I love them and I think it gives em character.

a little bit of both. a great bag collection has both styles of bags in it. one is perfect for work and the other is perfect for the weekend. it's impossible for me to choose.

Oof, I can't choose either, as I have both and love both! I have structured bags for work (yet some of those still have a certain amount of puddling to them, whilst maintaining a distinct shape), and slouchy bags for weekends, and I can't really say that I have a preference for either type. Even my structured bags don't feel boxy or stick out too far underneath my arm, IYKWIM, so they do still hug the body fairly decently. As far as I'm concerned, I really can go either way, as long as I like the style! ;)

I've never been a fan of the super structured bag, although I wouldn't mind having one Birkin in my collection!! Def. prefer slouch to structure.

I like structured handbags for business and dinner parties. I carry slouchy handbags when traveling on business and vacation.:smile: Both are great slouchy and structured.

Love the slouch and the leather that goes with it. But... I need structured for work and its impossible to find one that's appealing. Gosh, my life is so hard!!! :P
