Just because a piece may be considered trendy, doesn’t mean it won’t become an invaluable investment for your wardrobe. Three popular fall bag trends (including tote bags, portfolio clutches, and top handle satchels) are classic and sophisticated styles that will look chic both today and well in the future. The key to finding a bag that will last for years is to look for quality construction, simple detailing, and a streamline design.
Tote Bags provide ample space to toss all your daily necessities into, from laptops to a change of shoes. Instead of opting for soft cloth or straw tote bags (which are more appropriate for going to the beach or pool), choose a structured leather version. This provides more versatility, thereby enabling you to wear it to the office or for casual outings.
