Here are the four most used handbags in my wardrobe.
If you have one of each of these handbags I promise you they will work with every outfit you can pull together.
It must be said that I am not a handbag fanatic. I like them but I'm not obsessed with them, probably because I hate carrying anything that isn't absolutely necessary due to my Fibromyalgia. I get sore if I hold onto something too long or try to hang a bag off my shoulder.
Thus my go-to bag is always a cross body bag.
As long as I keep them light they don't bother me as much and my hands are free. This is the bag I use most in my wardrobe. I also have that brown Lucky saddle bag shown in the photos above. I switch out between the brown and the black bags depending on what I'm wearing. Neutrals like brown and black will go with everything and won't show the dirt or wear and tear as much. Copper or pewter would also be good neutral choices. Leather bags like this look even better as they age.
Then we have the clutch.
I prefer clutches for modern edgy looks and I love how they don't interrupt the line of my outfit.
Now we are onto a big time favourite of mine…the structured or framed handbag.
These are reminiscent of the 1950's and look amazing with fit and flare dresses. This type of bag might be my biggest weakness. I have a few of these lovelies. Added bonus with these bags…you can usually see everything that is inside when you open it.
Now we have the big Momma…the tote.
Perfect for traveling. Lots of room for magazines, large cameras, sweaters and sometimes even a little dog.
Be warned…when you carry these bags your husband, boyfriend or friends may start wanting you to carry their stuff for them as well. It can be like carrying around a suitcase on your arm if you let it get out of hand.
Would you choose these same types of handbags as your "must have" pieces?
Is your favourite handbag the one you use daily?
