You probably have more than just four bags because most fashionable women do. Nonetheless, the bags on this list are not about the quantity per se, but they define the four different bag types for the fashionista in you.
As long as your need to carry things is not too demanding for the night, there is no way a clutch will ever let you down while putting together attire for a formal/semi-formal event. It’s an evening bag for parties, proms, clubbing nights, weddings, and corporate events.
If you are wearing a dress, then it’s difficult to beat a matching or complementary clutch. As far as the color is concerned, you will likely need clutches in more than just one shade or design, but that’s applicable for all fashionable bags in general. Nevertheless, black and neutral are two of the safest choices you can make.
The Lunch Bag
There is a lot of work that goes into planning and carrying off corporate attire with that immaculate sense of fashion. The bag is a big part of that fashion statement as well, so it would be downright awkward to pull out a steel or plastic lunchbox during the lunch hour! That’s where the Mini Luncher comes in because it’s a lunch box that looks identical to a small, cross-body, (vegan) leather bag. This practical and fashionable alternative to the traditional lunch box can also be called a veritable lunch bag.
Now, the tote is probably the most practical bag that any woman can buy, but if you are careful with your choice, it won’t come at the cost of chic either. Totes are day bags, and they are for times when you do need to carry a lot of things with you. Medium-sized totes offer the best balance between practicality and fashion, but even oversized totes can be fashionable with the right design. The tote is an ideal choice for beaches, shopping days, trips, and for regular use.
The Classic Handbag
This is the most common bag in women’s fashion, but it is still a must-have item for your bag collection. From Gucci and Prada to the local brand you once saw at the thrift store, every bag manufacturer offers the classic handbag in more styles, designs, and shades than you can count! Nevertheless, don’t buy anything too big or too small, as medium-sized is the classic size for the classic bag. They are often marketed as iconic bags, but it’s essentially the same thing. Crossbody options are relatively new and trending, but strapped handbags that dangle from the forearms are arguably the classier choice still.
Don’t worry as much about the brands themselves but try to find something that you find appealing to your sense of fashion. If brands do matter to you a lot and you don’t need to worry as much about the pricing, then you will find several variations of the bags just discussed at every luxury fashion house out there.
