[kfilt] Do you have one handbag that you carry all the time? If you are looking to update your wardrobe, you should have a rotation of five or six handbags that you can use, depending on the occasion, your outfit and your mood. Though handbags, like all fashions, are a matter of personal taste. Here are five must-have handbag styles that I believe every woman should own.
The Everyday Bag
This is generally a shoulder bag in a neutral color that you can carry to work every single day. It’s roomy enough to hold all your stuff but it shouldn’t be oversized at all. Steer clear of funky colors, unless you work in a very creative field. This timeless handbag from Jenny Yuen is a perfect choice. It features black crinkled patent and a sophisticated, classic style. You can get the Esme Patent by Jenny Yuen for $525 at Shopflick.
The Large Hobo
Pick a large hobo bag as your carry-all handbag. You can use it on weekend shopping trips, overnight getaways, or anytime you just need a little extra room. The Jypsea Egyptian Diva hobo is a fun choice. It’s a very large bag created from uber-soft recycled leather highlighted with paint splatters. This hobo is accented with fringe trim and pyramid studs. Grab it at Shopflick for just $110.
The WOW Bag
This bag should be an all-occasion bag that really wows people. You should be able to carry it day or night. Select a bag in a funky shape or bright color in shiny patent leather. The Rebecca Minkoff Nikki bag definitely fits the bill. This textured red patent leather bag is gorgeous. It features studs and other details that make this handbag really special. Check out this bag and other cool options from Rebecca Minkoff at Shopflick.
The Throw-and-Go Bag
The throw-and-go bag is a canvas tote bag that you can just throw all your stuff in and head out the door. It’s for casual days that you are on the move. The bag should be durable, large and fun. The GreenOne organic tote is a hot option. It’s a simple bag created from organic cotton canvas, so it’s eco-friendly too. Each bag features beautiful artwork and has extra large side pockets to hold water, wine or anything else you need. Whether you are headed to the grocery store, the beach, the yoga studio or the park, this throw-and-go bag will take you there. It holds the equivalent of 2-3 grocery bags … so skip the paper or plastic. Order this canvas bag from Shopflick for only $48. It’s even endorsed by Oprah!
The Dazzling Clutch
You must have a really glitzy handbag for those hot dates and other special events. Pick a clutch embellished with sequins, crystals, beading and anything else that shines in the night. The Red Devil Bag by Touch of INNA will really dazzle. Rose quartz, crystals and naturally dyed jade come together to make this gorgeous red bag. It is handmade in the USA and has a matching red lining. Originally $800, this dazzling red clutch is now $700 at Shopflick. [/kfilt]
