Trends will come and trends will go, but every woman always needs a fantastic handbag. It’s the place she keeps everything important, from her lipstick to her credit card. It’s a fashion statement and a carryall. What it boils down to, is a woman’s handbag is her best friend.
Now, that being said, her handbag doesn’t have to look the same every day! Switching handbags from one day to the next keeps you chic and fresh. Here are four handbags that every girl needs to have on hand…
- The Everyday Bag. We all have that go-to bag, the one that we grab when we’re in a rush and the one that pretty much goes with everything we own. The Alaia Cowhide Handbag is one of these classic bags –animal prints are a new “neutral” and work with just about anything you could put on for the day. From dark colors to pastels—this season’s hot color palette.
- The Night Out Bag. For those little-black-dress kind of occasions, and for the nights out on the town with your girlfriends, you have to have something to fit the mood. The Lanvin Black Chain Clutch is exactly the bag that fits such an occasion. This is a terribly unusual bag from Lanvin and it retailed for $2400. When you get a closer look at it you’ll know why—the detailed pattern of the leather, the adjustable handle and detachable chain and the rockin’ gold closure really makes a big statement. Hold it as a clutch or an over the shoulder bag and either way, make a statement.
- The Summer Statement Bag. Summer is here and we all need to ditch our black and grey uniforms of winter. Even if you wear that color palette in the summer, accessorizing with color makes you pop. Pull out your colorful, your wild, and your fantabulous, because the most perfect accent is about to happen! You’ll need this vivid bright pink cross-body bag by Balenciaga no matter what the look you are trying to achieve! Cross-bodys are huge this season, and everyone wants one. Also, small bags are making a big comeback and they are great for going out. The hot pink Balenciaga is a twist on their classic motorcycle bag!
- The Activity Bag. Whether you’re out shopping or you’re headed to the beach, you need a bag that a) looks fantastic, and b) can stand up to all that activity! I love the vivid pattern and casual design of the Bottega Veneta bag for this must-have handbag category. This is totally the bag for the woman that wants to make a statement with summer whites and pastels. Subtle luxury meets the pastels, which are at the height of fashion this season.
