The secret of the most stylish women around the world is not giving in to impulse buys, but rather investing in staples that match their personal aesthetic and are easy to work around for any occasion and look. Do you have all the basics covered? To help you answer that question, Savoir Flair provides a checklist of the ten most useful bags that every woman should own. Read on below and see what’s missing from your wardrobe.
A Structured Black Day Bag
Nothing sends the message that you mean business as much as a structured black tote. Not only will it be your most loyal and useful companion, but it’s also versatile enough to be worn anywhere from the boardroom to lunch dates.
A Neutral Tote
Neutral colors are the most versatile ones you can pick. An easy, minimalist tote will serve as a great hero piece for virtually any outfit that you decide to wear.
A Go-To Evening Bag
Fall in love with the perfect evening bag and treasure it forever. It will see you through an endless number of dinner, dancing, and theater dates.
A Versatile Day Clutch
You might not think of this style as an absolute necessity, but with fancy weekend events (think: races, brunches, and yacht parties) happening frequently in our region, a day clutch in a lighter color is highly recommended.
A Black-Tie Box Clutch
Black-tie events might not be the most frequent of occasions, but require an elegant minaudière nonetheless. Make sure to keep one in your closet to avoid any drama before these important occasions.
A Pop-of-Color Piece
Sometimes, all you need is a pop of color – be it to complement a fun weekend activity or perk up a dull day. Pick your favorite hue or one that goes with most of your wardrobe’s contents. Orange, for example, is a surprisingly versatile color.
A Casual Weekend Number
All you need is one easy, casual bag that you can grab for a quick trip down to the shop, a coffee date, or even a road trip. Pick one that is high in quality as you’re guaranteed to get heavy mileage out of it.
A Luxe-Looking Weekender
Those sweet-but-short trips for which taking a massive suitcase would be slightly over the top? A roomy and good-quality weekender bag is the solution.
A Chic Piece of Luggage
We all have that one old suitcase that has seen better days. Ladies, it’s time to invest in a piece of luggage that we’re not ashamed to carry around.
A Quality Beach Bag
Yes, most of its lifetime is spent in the sand and exposed to water, but the beach bag is not one to forget in your collection. Get a quality piece that will see you through many years and is chic enough to elevate even the laziest of beach-day looks.
