Everyone knows a fashion editor is only as good as her purse – okay, so we’re sort of exaggerating here. Still, there’s no doubt that a good bag can make or break an outfit – but with the trends constantly changing how does one select a pocketbook that will last more than one season? Take it from an editor and invest in one that’s classic and versatile (and preferably black or white). Click through to see ours, and get the look!
Hayley’s Go-Anywhere Black Bag
So, Celine isn’t in everyone’s budget (truth be told, it’s barely in mine!), but you can get the same classic, Parisian chic look with a simple, square shoulder bag. Try this BCBG crossbody.
Nora’s Ritzy Gold Accented Bag
Put a luxurious spin on a roomy black purse by opting for one with gold accents. We love Michael Michael Kors spin on this trend!
Fawnia’s Vintage-Looking White Bag
Not a big fan of black? Go for the other most versatile neutral: White! For added style points choose a classic shape that looks like you fished it from your grandma’s closet. Our pick? Lauren Ralph Lauren’s ladylike satchel.
Leah’s Chic Black Clutch
An oversized black clutch will take you from day to night in style. This Calvin Klein luxe leather handheld gets our vote!
