The ultimate guide of handbags that complete a wardrobe
Handbags are essential for our wardrobe, they can elevate our entire look, help us make a statement or complete an outfit while being absolutely practical, but with so many options on the market it can be overwhelming to find your perfect match. They say: happiness is a perfect bag, but what are the ones that serve as the foundation of a fashionista’s collection? From the everyday bag to the little bag with big personality, today we are talking about the handbag styles that are a must in any girl’s collection.
Everyday work bag
This is a “go-to bag” that you’ll need for work, meetings etc. It has plenty of space for everything you need during a busy day and you can play with colors to find the right one that fits your wardrobe the most.
The Zara’s one is perfect for everyday
Mango also has great options
Your everyday bag is also one that you could splurge on considering that you get the most use out of it. Here’s one from Mansur Gabriel, very unique and chic which will spice up your everyday outfit:
Small crossbody bag
For those days when you don’t have much to carry but you need your hands to be free. During the day this kind of bag is very practical for running errands but also during the night while going out, it’s perfect for keeping your wallet safe.
A small black bag like this one from Zac Zac Posenis is always a good idea and will go well with a simple day outfit like a white T-shirt and jeans as well as with a little black dress during night time:
For sunnier days you can choose a lighter color bag like this one from Moschino
For more affordable options look at Mango’s bags:
Great for any weddings or official events a daytime clutch will always have your back. It’s large enough to carry everything you need to touch up your makeup, your wallet and your phone. I recommend choosing brighter colors to match easily with your dresses.
This clutch from Mango is a unique piece to add to your wardrobe and you can wear it during the night too.
This one from Ted Baker is ideal for an important meeting, not too dressy yet official enough to match your suit.
A great neutral clutch is this from Aldo and is very affordable.
The iconic quilted shoulder bag
From the moment when Chanel came with its classic quilted style, everyone fell in love with this style of bag so it kind of became a classic piece for every wardrobe.
For the ones ready to invest some real cash here is a classic Chanel Boy Bag that is definitely worth the splurge.
Here’s a dupe I found in Mango:
For a budget friendly option from H&M with eco-leather:
If you want to inject some color in your wardrobe this bag from Asos is going to do just that:
For sunny weekends and vacation days a woven bag is a must. Jane Birkin introduced this trend and is still pretty popular.
I love these two from Mango, great quality and unique designs, just in time from spring:
Also, Asos has great options at affordable prices:
You should also own a stricter kind of clutch for evenings, romantic dates or late meetings. An evening clutch is a stable piece that should be in your wardrobe for more formal occasions.
This is an affordable option from Asos, it is very versatile and can compliment different types of night gowns.
And once again for those ready to splurge, here’s a great option from Jimmy Choo:
Here’s an interesting design from Mango, a very fun clutch that will draw attention for sure.
A small bag with big personality
The kind of purse that will represent your personality, a statement piece that can either be a vintage one or a unique design that draws attention.
Aldo has great options when it comes to chic and edgy handbags like this one:
For romantic girls out there, just in time for spring, this bag from Mango is going to be your favorite bag for this season.
Handbags are the most functional accessories, they hold our precious possessions every day, they have been with us for better and worse and I think it is worth investing in a few high quality bags that don’t go out of style. Couldn’t find a better way to end this article then with a quote from Lauren Conrad “Boys are like purses. You’re always gonna have that one boy that you’re always comfortable with and you know you’ll always kind of like. That’s your purse that you wear everywhere. Then you have that gorgeous bag that you want everyone to see you with, but the gorgeous bag is usually an asshole or costs a lot of money. Then you have those other purses that you really like but you really don’t want to be seen with”
