Handbag Must Haves
Women and bags go together like chocolate and cake. A girl can never have too many bags, but how many is enough? While it can be exciting to swipe that plastic card in exchange for a new tote or a pretty little clutch, you’ve probably got a house full of bags already – under your bed, tucked away behind a closet, hanging behind your bedroom door- never to see the light of day again.
However, what most women fail to realize is that there are only 6 essential bag styles that every wardrobe needs. So, it’s time to clean out those closets, let go of those old, forgotten bags, and make room for the 4 essential types of bags every woman should own this fall:
1. Structured Tote Bag – Every working girl knows the struggle of stuffing papers and devices into a formless, frumpy bag. That’s why a structured tote has become one of the necessary handbags for every girl on the go. Make it a big one if you plan on taking documents, laptops, or a tablet with you. Our favorite pick? The Ralph Lauren Dome Leather Satchel which combines form and function in one classic looking tote.
2. Crossbody Side Bag – The crossbody bag is essential for those girls that always have to elbow their way through throngs of people. Whether you’re going on your daily commute to work, or if you’re going out to run a few errands, the crossbody side bag makes the ideal carry around to keep your important items with you, without having to struggle to keep it on your shoulder. The Zara Leather Tassel Messenger Bag makes the perfect crossbody for any outfit.
3. Day Clutch – If you’re just going to go out to grab a bite with a few good friends, or if you’re picking up a few things at the grocery store, then a day clutch makes the perfect pick as your bag of choice. Keep it casual with a glorified wallet, just the perfect size to keep your phone, keys, and some lose change for those quick walks out into town. Herschel Supply Co.’s Black Clutch is one of our favorites in the day clutch department.
4. The Weekender – For those overnight’s at your best girl’s place, or those impromptu trips to the beach, nothing beats a weekend bag. These spacious baby luggage bags can carry so much more than your typical purse. And when it comes to weekenders, nothing beats JMcLaughlin’s Medium Sailcloth Duffle.
With these 4 style of handbags you can’t go wrong this fall!
