6 Chic Bags Every New Yorker Should Own
And none of them are paper or plastic
Here’s what you’re doing today: going to the gym, grabbing coffee with a coworker, meeting your boss for lunch, having drinks with your best friend and making a last-minute schlep to Trader Joe’s.
Here’s what you’re not doing today: going home to switch bags.
The great news is you need only six bags in your rotation to get you through any occasion the city throws your way--and you can nab them at any price point. Let’s go shopping.
THE MINIMALIST BAG
Did you know that you don?t have to carry around an umbrella, a water bottle, three lip glosses and those last four issues of The New Yorker at all times? Stick to the essentials--your shoulder will thank you.
THE “I WANNA DANCE WITH SOMEBODY” BAG
One of the toughest things about NYC is trying to dance at a place that doesn’t have a coat check. Ditch the clutch for a small, minimalist shoulder bag so you can show off your moves without getting your wallet stolen.
THE WEEKEND SCHLEP BAG
When you’re heading out to the North Fork on the LIRR for the weekend, it’s neither the time nor the place for a big-ass suitcase. The solution is one of these babies--it’s fashionable, versatile and can hold a ton of cozy sweaters.
