From Classic to Boho, Here’s the Best Investment Bag for Your Personal Style
We live in the age of accessories, where your handbag can make a bigger statement than your entire outfit. In the market for an investment bag, but don't know which one goes best with your look? We've got you covered. Here, ten worthy purchases for every kind of style.
If You're Classically Preppy
Nothing thrills you more than a eyelet shift in the summer and a Fisherman's sweater in the winter. A structured top-handle bag will fit right in. And just like your favorite Burberry trench, the side panels of this bag flash a bit of that signature check plaid.
If You're a Neutral Minimalist
Your closet consists mostly of navy and gray. You consider pockets an accessory. And you may or may not sport a weekday uniform. A single-strap flap bag is the cherry on top of a perfectly curated look.
The Row ($2,950)
If You're Always Up on the Latest Trends
Being a lady of the moment, your outfits vary day to day. Anchor them with accessories that feel current but are secretly staples. Like your trusty moto jacket—you wear that with everything. A zipper-detailed satchel has the same spunk and staying power.
If You're Nerdy Chic
If you could've stayed in college forever (and we mean in a glasses/cardigan kinda way), you might like an update to that leather messenger bag we're almost positive you still have. This accordion-expanding satchel has all the academia vibes.
Saint Laurent ($2,890)
If You're Relaxed and Quirky
A roomy black tote will never steer you wrong. But if you're going for something a bit more playful, try Fendi's cheeky monster eyed version. It's just begging to be paired with your statement-sneaker collection.
If You're Tailored and Sharp
Clean lines and impeccable fit are your M.O. (We see you, peg-leg trousers.) But when it comes to your bag, you want a softer shape (and even a woven leather) to balance out the other angles.
Bottega Veneta ($3,750)
If You're Feminine With a Flare for Retro
A dainty pocketbook is best for you (and your collection of A-line dresses). The square shape signals another era but the subtle studs keep it firmly in the 21st century.
If You're Ever So Slightly Boho
It's not like you're rifling through Stevie Nicks' closet, but you do appreciate a subtle bell sleeve and the occasional maxi dress. Don't overdo it with an oversized floppy tote. Instead, toss on a compact crossbody with throwback hardware.
If You're Unabashedly Eclectic
Alessandro Michele’s maximalism is for you. The current creative director of Gucci has made color cool again, and his floral embroidery and kooky appliqués will start a conversation without you ever having to utter a word.
