5 classic handbag styles

There is no better wardrobe investment than a bag that you’ll love forever

We’ve chosen our top handbag styles that every woman is sure to love.


1. The Shopper

As the name suggests, a shopper is perfect for shopping days. Whether you’re heading to the market or to the mall, take a large straw shopper with you. It’s also a great bag for holding all your beach essentials.

2. The Saddlebag

A saddlebag is basically a clutch on a strap. Use this bag when you only need a few items such as your phone, purse, lipstick and a pack of tissues.

3. The Drawstring Bag

A drawstring bag is ideal if you have lots of bits and bobs and a grab-and-go approach to your day. Just pull on the strings to seal your goods away.

4. The Shoulder Bag

Shoulder bags are the go-to bag when you only need to have your phone and purse on hand. Choose this bag when you’re on the move and prefer hands-free convenience.

If you have lots to carry during your busy day, add a tote to your wardrobe. This faux-leather option is big enough to fit a laptop along with your daily essentials.
