1.

BELT BAGS.

The belt bag has hands down become one of the best fashion trends over the past few seasons. Not only are they practical, they take any outfit from an 8 to a 10. Whether they be wrapped around your waist or thrown over your shoulder, the belt bag has instant cool factor. They are perfect for they everyday casual look, and did we mention practical? Working gals, this is the style for you.

BUCKET BAG.

Are you one of those chicks that carries their life in their bag? Everything from your laptop to your snacks for the next 24 hours ‘just in case of an emergency’? Well hold it right there because we have a solution. The Bucket Bag. With a top handle and plenty of room for your everyday essentials, bucket bags are a winner. The daggy everyday bag just became a whole lot cooler thanks to the bucket bag.

3.

CROSS BODY BAGS.

The cross-body bag is a classic. A must-have and our go-to. A bag that every girl has and can’t have enough of (or is that just us?). Designer or not, the cross-body bag is the perfect bag for everything. Festivals, fashion week, every day or a night on the town. Whether it is embellished or plain, black or white, ladies you must ‘invest’ in a cross-body.

Our pick: Prada Pionniere Shoulder Bag


4.

EVENING BAGS.

We all need that one (or multiple) special bag that we use for date night. A bag that makes us feel extra pretty and well just extra! If you ask us, gold hardware is the way to go. You can never go wrong with a classic black and gold bag especially for evening events. They are timeless and they are stunning. A clutch or cross body is our pick and nothing too big. Keep it small but big enough to fit the date night essentials.

Our pick: Chloe Drew Bijou Shoulder Bag


5.

TOP HANDLE BAGS.

While having a long strap on a bag is classic and easy, why not change things up with a smaller top handle? Not only do they look good but they have plenty of room for all your girly needs. Release the inner fashionista in you and try something a little out there and something a little fun. The hand-held bag ups the ante of any outfit, not to mention making a killer Insta worthy pic.

Our pick: The Row Leather Tote
