8 types of bags to carry through every season. With each passing season, a new collection of must-have bags pops up onto the scene, with the options being a bit overwhelming.
From crossbody bags that make travelling easier, to itty bitty micro bags, to bucket bags and everything in between, the dominating trends and shapes to choose from are endless.
So, instead of being overwhelmed by the many options out there, here are the key types of bag every woman should own to get her through every season.
A classic for a reason, the shoulder bag is back with a vengeance. What was once the main bag type in the 90s, this bag is an easy bag to hold, as it goes over the shoulder, in your hand, or clutched on a night out.
Crossbody bags have reigned supreme due to their hands-free appeal. Throw one across your body and forget about struggling to carry any shopping bags and phone at the same time.
Perfect for any flea-market browsing or food shop haul, the shopper-tote bag of now can accessorise well with everyday pieces like loose fitting trousers or a silky midi skirt.
The micro mini
Small yet mighty. The micro-mini handbag is most useful for an evening out or an after-work event when your lip gloss, phone and ID are the only items you need.
Although the bucket-bag trend has somewhat slowed down in recent years, this chic handbag option will never really go out of style.
The new bucket bags are bigger and better than ever, making a great addition to any outfit.
The top handle-bag
There’s nothing that looks more work appropriate than a sturdy top handle bag. They are professional, sleek, practical and have captured the hearts of the fashion crowd one clasp snap at a time. The vintage-inspired bag will add instant polish to any ensemble, elevating even the simplest jeans and white tee.
Say goodbye to the notion that backpacks are only for school. Thanks to fashion bloggers on Instagram, this nostalgic bag is seen as a modern staple for your everyday wardrobe.
The backpack can serve as both a handbag and laptop carrier – making it great for a weekend away but sophisticated for your 9-to-5.
At one point, clutches have completely disappeared from modernity. But as vintage style become more mainstream, this classic bag has seen a resurgence in cool oversize styles and interesting fabrics that will elevate any look.
