There should be no limit or value placed on the number of bags a girl can have in her closet, but if we had to cherry pick just five bags worthy of It status, here’s our list!
A hobo bag: Bottega Veneta
Bottega Veneta’s iconic Intrecciato weave is identifiable from a mile away and makes a loud statement with its minimal aesthetic. Its classic sophistication and unique craftsmanship is enough to render it a classic, but such elements on a hobo bag elevate it from a stereotypically slouchy and sloppy bag to one that’s covetable and refined. Its spacious sensibility also makes it versatile enough for the office and beyond, and it’s an easygoing pairing with just about anything.
An oversized clutch: Céline
Clutches are usually confined to galas and dinnertime soirées, but there’s no doubt they deserve the spotlight beyond these closed door events too. Their easy elegance can amp up any outfit, but try a clutch with something unexpected, like jeans and pumps, or a midi skirt and sneakers. And since Céline’s oversized clutches are roomier, they’ll allay the fears of every posession hoarder by holding more than just your essentials.
A mini bag: Fendi
Karl Lagerfeld’s eccentric larger-than-life genius has produced many Fendi luxuries with cult status, but the most notable of all is arguably Fendi’s range of micro bags. Wehtehr it’s the Peekaboo or By The Way, these petite wonders are cute conversation starters and are a deviation from what everyone else already has. They may not be the most practical carriers, with the Fendi Micro Peekaboo being barely larger than an orange, so be prepared to empty out your purses and retain only the bare minimum of all your belongings!
A fringed bag: Saint Laurent
Fringe detailing was at the height of its popularity several seasons ago, but the appeal of this style is that it simply doesn’t go out of trend. Channel cool Bohemian vibes with Saint Laurent’s fringed bucket bag, which is best worn either wth a printed smock dress or a leather jacket and skinny jeans. When the ubiquitous music festival rolls around, it’ll also make for a festive accouterment.
Long chain crossbody bags: Rebecca Minkoff
The Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC is a transeasonal favourite among everyone from celebrities to bloggers because of its endless versatility and stunning hardware. The best par? It’s also completely budget friendly.
