19 Investment Bags That Will Never Go Out of Style
In a perfect world, we’d have a different bag for every season, event and even mood. (Faux fur for spunky days, red satin for nights out and dark and oversize for days that should’ve been over before they even started.) Until that perfect world, we’ll have to settle for one great bag. We’re talking about a purse that is so gorgeous and so versatile that it not only goes with every single thing in your closet, but it also enhances them. How to avoid choosing a style that will be old news by March? Stick to a classic. These handbags are timelessly chic, so you’ll have no problem throwing one over your arm for the next 30 years.
