This Is The Bag You Need for Every Season

Surprise! The bag you need for every season is whatever bag you choose.

Yep, we said it and we’ll repeat it: The bag you need for every season is whatever bag you choose. The most important thing is to choose a bag that works for you and your busy, stylish, and #badass lifestyle. In other words, a bag that can keep up! Although you want to make sure you have the best handbag for every occasion, this doesn’t mean you need a few dozen cluttering up your closet. Read on for some priceless (pun-intended) suggestions for finding versatile bags you need for any given season, occasion, and reason.

Structure is Sacred

The shape of your bag is just as important as what you put in it! There are an infinite number of styles to choose from: slouchy hobo bags, trendy bucket bags, upright satchels – the list goes on. Different structures can have so many different uses, too. A leather satchel can be a great transition bag for days when you have to run from the office to dinner to the theatre and you need a carryall that still looks put-together. For more relaxed days, try grabbing a simple open-top tote bag, perfect for Sunday mornings at the farmers’ market – ditch the need for plastic bags while you’re at it!

Material Matters

We’ve all had that uh-oh moment. You know, the moment when you step outside holding your favorite leather bag only to see that it’s pouring rain. Yikes! Material matters, especially if you’re looking to invest in a colorful, trendy bag or a suede, neutral-toned shoulder bag to last through the years. With summer rolling in, keep an eye out for must-have bags in materials like canvas and straw that can stand up to the beach and have a wistful, vintage look that’s not likely to go out of style anytime soon. Also, don’t be afraid to check out unconventional materials like bamboo or recycled fabrics!

Size it Smart

Size it smart! We can’t emphasize that enough. Not all bags are created equal, and you don’t want to be out dancing with a clunky carryall or messenger bag, or stuck traveling with only a shoulder bag! When it comes to dressier evening events, stick to smaller bags like clutches, wristlets, and compact crossbody bags that can fit your essentials (phone, wallet, lipstick) and won’t steal too much attention from your outfit.
