5 Staple Handbags That You Need to Own

Everyone seems to have taken the opportunity to have a spring clean during lockdown so for those looking to refresh and streamline their wardrobes, we thought we’d share tips on how to create a capsule collection of handbags.

We have carefully chosen five styles to suit every occasion. With these staples, the accessories avalanche when searching for the perfect bag at the back of your wardrobe will be a thing of the past!

1. The Cross Body Bag
Cross body bags are the ultimate handbag choice, with retailers stocking them in every colour, material and size you could dream of. You can get compact utility styles that are the perfect size for your purse and keys if you’re off for a walk, or sleek leather ones to match smart-casual outfits.

Regardless of the style, they all have one thing in common - a long strap that's worn over your head so you can go completely hands-free. That means you don’t have to worry about annoying straps sliding off your shoulder or juggling things with a bag hanging on the crook of your elbow.

2. The Shoulder Bag
A versatile shoulder bag is the ideal accompaniment for your daytime look. They’re roomy enough for all your essentials and more if you like to be prepared for all situations, but they’re also sleek enough to look like a style choice rather than purely functional.

Invest in a classic leather shoulder bag that will last for years, with a zip-top to keep all your belongings safe.

3. The Clutch
A clutch bag in a neutral colour (like nude, black or silver) will seamlessly match every outfit and they’re a timeless classic that will never go out of style. That’s why it’s worth investing in one that you really love.

We recommend thinking about your preferred colour palette for evening wear and what your essential items are, and from there you can go about searching for the perfect clutch.

4. The Statement Bag
In a happy and vibrant mood? Then you’ll want a bag to match! Every wardrobe needs at least one statement bag in a bright colour or bold print to bring some joy to your day. Whether it’s a fun backpack or an on-trend waist bag, a statement bag will brighten your outfit and put a spring in your step.

5. The Tote
We all know that plastic shopping bags are bad for the environment. The solution? Keep a canvas tote bag handy at all times! It’s compact enough to fold up into your everyday handbag, they’re easy to clean and perfect for any impromptu lunch-time shopping trips, so you can say no to the plastic alternative.

If you’re hoping to streamline your wardrobe, these are the five staple handbags that you need to own. They will see you through every day out, event or shopping trip; in fact, they'll go with any outfit for any occasion you may have in the diary!
