Style One: An Everyday Bag

An everyday bag is a very personal choice because everyone’s everyday needs are different, but we like to think that your everyday bag is your essential workhorse bag. Your everyday bag could be a smaller crossbody or a medium-to-large top handle bag or tote that can hold almost everything. It’s the bag you carry every single day no matter what you’re doing. An everyday bag is durable enough to handle the random spills but stylish enough to make you feel like you actually have your life together. An everyday bag needs to be versatile: it literally needs to match everything: cocktail dresses to a yoga outfit and everything in between. Shop Everyday Bags

Style Two: The Little Black Bag

As the name suggests, the LBB is similar to the LBD (little black dress) in that it’s reliable, chic, and it never goes out of style. When you want to travel a little lighter for day time, you’ll need a small crossbody bag. A little black bag will go with everything and you’ll have it forever!? Luckily, the price point on these mini bags is usually lower than the rest of the bags on this list, so you might be able to pick more than one! Shop Little Black Bags

Style Four: Wallet on Chain

Whether you want to use it as a wallet inside of a larger bag or when you want to travel really light, a wallet on a chain can be a versatile addition to your collection. Often referred to by its acronym, WOC, the wallet on a chain is exactly what it sounds like: a small, wallet-sized bag on a chain with card slots. You’ll be able to carry it from day to night due to its small size and crossbody style. It fits just your essentials. It’s one of the most versatile investment bags you can buy, and that’s why you need one in your collection. Shop Wallet on Chain Bags

Style Six: Carefree Crossbody Bag

This may also be your everyday bag, but we think it’s important to make sure you have a carefree crossbody for those times that you really need both hands. As we all know, a crossbody bag gives you the freedom of keeping your hands free while keeping your things close. A good crossbody bag will have a sturdy strap that’s adjustable and an opening that’s easy to get into. It shouldn’t be too heavy and should be made of a material that can withstand a lot of wear.
