Whether you’re a handbag enthusiast or an accessories minimalist, there are certain handbag staples you should have in your closet. And if you invest in these five bag styles, you’ll always have the perfect accessory to match any outfit and occasion.
A STATEMENT BAG
A statement bag can transform an outfit. It can take your ensemble from zero to ten with one shoulder toss. It shows style, sophistication, and can literally act as a shield against the world.
A CLUTCH BAG
Clutches are intended to add to, rather than detract from, the look of an overall outfit, rather the way jewelry does. Your closet simply isn’t complete without at least one chic little clutch bag. They are multi-functional and when you have a go-to clutch in your wardrobe, you can grab it on your way out to brunch, run errands, dinner, or drinks.
A WORK BAG
Handbag shopping isn’t all play, it’s sometimes business too! You need a bag to accompany you on important job interviews and business meetings and the perfect workbag is understated, yet classy and tailored and will match all your work outfits. It should also be roomy enough to carry all your work essentials like your portfolio, business files, laptop, etc.
A TOTE BAG
Every woman should have a trusted tote bag in her closet that can help tackle any commute or vacay with effortless style. If you have a good tote bag in your life, you know that they can hold everything. And we mean everything. With their spacious interiors, exterior zippered sections and hidden pockets all throughout, there’s no shortage of things that a big tote bag can hold. No matter where your lifestyle takes you – frequent trips to the gym, cross-country work trips, or keeping up with the kids – a good tote bag is the ultimate accessory.
A CROSSBODY BAG
Last but not least, every lady needs a cross-body bag for hands-on situations. When you have a cross-body bag in your arsenal, your hands will be free to sort through racks at the mall, fruit at the farmers market, carry your toddler in your arms, or take pictures while you’re out exploring.
