4 Types of Bags Every Fashion Girl Should Own



With all the bag choices in the market, it can be difficult to distinguish the pieces you actually need from the purses that are just nice to have. Each season brings new, trendy iterations that are sure to make a statement, but what are the classic handbag styles that serve as the foundation of a fashion girl’s collection?

So before you make another impulsive splurge, we listed down the four essential bags that you need in your wardrobe:

1. Small Crossbody

Apart from the subtle statement it makes, the hands-free comfort found in crossbody bags can be a saving grace. The petite bag is perfect for errand days and night outs that can keep your phone and wallet securely stowed away.

2. Evening Clutch

For cocktail evenings, a small, decorated clutch is the way to go, and it can even make a difference to a whole outfit, especially when it comes in playful textures and structured silhouettes.

3. Tote Bag

For the girl on-the-go, a tote is a must-have item. Go for a minimal, sophisticated silhouette so you can wear it from day-to-night.

4. Quilted Shoulder Bag

Nothing can be more timeless than the quilted shoulder bag. Chanel was the fashion house who purveyed its style status, however, there are plenty of other brands which are serving up its own stylish iterations. Take this with you on a weekend stroll or even on a night out!
