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!
