Back to black
You can never really go wrong with the
basics, though, so set about securing a nice black or other neutral-hued purse
for daytime use. We promise you: it’s probably the greatest thing you can do
for yourself on the bag front.

In your clutches
Sleek and chic, a well-paired clutch is
always appropriate for any nighttime event. Best of all? This is one type of
formalwear that will never go out of fashion, so go ahead and invest. Use a
metallic or beaded beauty to elevate a dressy look, while keeping a few simpler
styles on hand to grab on your way to the door for a casual night out with the

For nights when you simply don’t want to have
to worry about carrying anything around, substitute your clutch for a stylish

Just because you’re on the go doesn’t mean
you have to give up on looking cute. These roomy totes are perfect to stash all
the odds and ends necessary for a plane, train or car trip. Tip: It helps to
have a bright or distinctive bag, especially for traveling via public transportation.
Something sturdy with leather handles (it might be a bit pricier, but worth
it!) will have ya jetsetting in style for a long while.

worth putting too much thought into, but the truth is, it’s probably one of the
most important keepers a girl could own – and not just because it holds all
your cash! Think about it: other bags get switch out based on the occasion, but
your wallet goes everywhere with you. Luckily, there are plenty of adorable
options to choose from.

For days when packing for a sleepover or a
beach trip are the biggest of your bag issues, a roomy and laid-back canvas
knapsack is all you could ever want. Fun, but not fussy – that’s our motto.
