The Five Handbags Every Woman Should Have In Her Closet

You don't neccessarily need 20 Birkins, but having only one bag that you carry every day just won't cut it. We've narrowed it down to the five key handbags every women, on any budget, should own. How many of these essentials do you have in your closet?

 

1. Day Bag

Buy one in a neutral color and make sure it can hold everything you need from 8am to midnight.

 

 

Splurge: Bottega Veneta Intrecciato Leather Stripe "Roma" Tote

 

 

Bargain: GUESS Dizzy Satchel

</p>

2. Chic Clutch

Sparkle works with jeans or for formal occasions.

Splurge: Anya Hindmarch Valorie Bells embellished glitter-finished leather clutch


Bargain: Moyna Beaded Fold-Over Clutch

3. Crossbody Bag

'Hands-free' isn't just for cellphones anymore. If it's going to be a busy day, don't let your handbag wear you down (so to speak)!

 

Splurge: BALENCIAGA Classic City Bag

 

 

Bargain: Kate Spade New York Cobble Hill-Tenley Cross Body

</p>

4. Classic Black Purse

It's the one your daughter will want to borrow a million years from now.

 

Splurge: Gucci Soft Stirrup Large Shoulder Bag

 

Bargain: Tory Burch Dena Tote

</p>

5. Travel Bag

No matter what your budget, make sure it's sturdy and wheeled.

 

Splurge: Bottega Veneta Intrecciato leather travel trolley

 

 

Bargain: GUESS Travel Panar 20" 4 Wheel Spinner Upright
