Style-Delights: 5 Handbags That Will Suffice (Gasp!)

February 25, 2012

5 Handbags That Will Suffice (Gasp!)

There are opinions.
There are point of views.
And there are certain truths! Like - A girl can never have too many shoes or hand bags! That said, I always try to optimize my shopping budget with a style sense that works in most situations (Occasional self-reward or indulgence aside). So, even though I firmly believe that you can justify your VISA bill for your 54th handbag, here is my list of 5 handbags that will compliment most outfits, suit most occasions and work with most settings.

1. Black Bag
A nice sized black tote/top handle carry-all that fits your keys to lipstick to ipod; will work everywhere from work place to PTA meeting!


2. Brown Bag
For Navys and Neutrals of your wardrobe, get a good brown leather satchel/tote.


3. Bright Clutch
For those spring/summer brunches or perking up the dreary cold days, a bright colored clutch will work with every wardrobe.

4. Straw bag
Heading to beach or to the mall or running an errand, a straw bag can carry you through entire summer. Just throw in your wallet in there!

5. Evening Sparkle
A silver or gold or a satin clutch can compliment most evening wear -  from ball gowns to dinner dress to date night outfits, add the sparkle with a shiny clutch!

Buy your "5 will suffice"  handbags here -
Do you change your handbag daily? What kind of handbag you use the most?

  1. So true! I recently got a white straw clutch that has a hint of sparkle and gold brass buckle - great for summer brunch AND parties. x

  2. Great post. I love the first two. I try to switch my bags every week or every two weeks. Just to keep them looking new without too much ware.

  4. Great post! I would also like to add a light colored bag - white/beige/off white, as a bonus!! A large, funky tote bag to carry while shopping wouldn't hurt too :-)

  11. Great post!

    I have a bunch of bags but I really only use 4 on a regular basis- a coral satchel, a pale pink tote, a large cream weekend bag and a small cream cross body bag. I'm in a pickle if I need a dark bag!

  12. Nice post!
    Although I dont know why I bother buying handbags but I just hate changing them. I carry so many things, so I mostly stick to just one bag. This post just reminded me of all the unused ones lying around :/

  17. I use my black tote way too much! I need to rotate more often. I also found a cross-body bag that I have been loving recently- it gives my poor shoulders a break! Love this post Jyoti! Xo

  19. I'm not a huge handbag fan (give me dresses any day) but I have to say that these were good, sensible suggestions. Now I kind of want a bright clutch!
