How the way you hold your bag can tell a lot about you.

London, Jan 15 ( ANI ): A body language expert has given an insight into a woman life and personality by the way she holds her handbag.

In an infographic created by Refinery29, Patti Wood describes the difference between the Schlepper, the Arm-Crook Hook and the Baguette, among others, the Daily Mail reported.

If you embrace the Schlepper style, for example, you might have several bags, carried in a "wherever fits" manner.

Wood said that it means you're fatigued, exhausted, and in a rush.

The bags suggest you're a little spaced-out and having a hard time being present, she said.

The A-list-loved Arm-Hook Crook, by contrast, screams empowerment. And it certainly doesn't hurt if you have a designer number to demonstrate it.

She said that you wear the bag as if it's a badge of honor or an award.

You feel as if you've got a sense of superiority, she said.

Some are specific to a style of bag. The Twofer - when a woman holds her clutch with both hands across her front - indicates shyness, or defensiveness. Not ideal if you happen to be out at a party.

Instead, consider the Baguette - when a bag is held under one arm like a clutch, regardless or whether there is a strap or not.

Wood calls it a "utilitarian look, and you don't really care about the bag, but rather what's in it. You're goal-oriented."

The body language expert's research also sheds light on poses such as the Thumb-to-Pit, the Third Arm Drape and the Armpit Vice. ( ANI )
