In my mind, the perfect accessory is a handbag. They look nice, are easy to carry around and they hold all your stuff! A good handbag can serve its purpose for a very long time without the constant need to change. It is difficult to list out the brand of bags one must have in their closet. However there are certain bags that every girl should have so that no matter what’s going on, no matter what event/wedding/party springs up, you know you’re covered. Here’s what you need:
A ‘black’ handbag
Every girl needs that bag handbag that can fit into any occasion. You are done dressing up, you’re confused about what had a bag to carry, take the black one.
So this is essential because you need a bag that can go with a lot of outfits but will still look like you made an effort to have a pop of colour. Everyone can go with black but sometimes, neutral is the way to go.
It’s not everytime you’re in the mood to move around with a bag hanging over your shoulder or elbow. It is worse if you have nothing to put in the bag. For a simple event (like a wedding), a clutch always does the trick.
This is important for a casual day in town. This design should be more relaxed and maybe have a playful colour. It should be big enough but not too big. This chic choice will be perfect for Saturday morning errands and activities.
Cross body bag
This is important for a hands-free day around. It a small classic choice that can be useful on a night out with friends. It stays on your body safely all the time without the fear of leaving it at a bar or when you have had too many cocktails.
Pop of colour
We all need that one colourful bag that you might have to plan an entire outfit around. Fashion enables you to stand out and get away with it so you can have a mediocre all-white outfit that is bumped up to perfect when you add a purple or orange handbag. There’s nothing like that ‘pop’ to change your whole outfit.
This handbag will serve you from errands to a weekend getaway. Imagine how much you can fit into your oversize bag on a shopping spree. Might end up being too heavy but it will save you from struggling with a lot of shopping bags and hey, you might as well save the planet while looking fashionable.
You don’t have to have all these bags on the list. After all, you can only spend according to your financial capacity. But no matter how many you can afford, you should make sure whatever you have is stylish, fashionable and YOU.
