How many handbags are in your regular rotation? At the office, a chic leather tote is versatile and can hold your laptop, phone and a change of shoes, in case you're going out after work. Keep a cute clutch inside your carry-all at all times to make it easy to transition your look from day to evening. On the weekends, go for a leather backpack or trendy shoulder bag.

What style of bag do I need?


First, think about what size bag you’ll need. Do you travel light or do you pack your whole life in your purse? If you prefer a large handbag, structured tote bags and slouchy satchels are your best bet. We recommend getting a phone wallet or clutch you can throw into a tote -- when you don’t need a lot of space you can simply take the smaller bag of essentials with you. Crossbody bags are great for going hands-free and the petite sizes are perfect for concerts and outings. For evening, go with a snazzy little box clutch. Backpacks have come back in a big way, in many cute styles. As for details, it’ll be up to you whether you want open-top, zip top, snap-flap closure or detachable shoulder straps.

Should I get a leather or fabric purse?


Fabric handbags, like canvas, tend to be lighter while leather holds up very nicely. Dirt spots and stains can be difficult to remove from fabric, but some materials are lower maintenance like nylon and denim. That said, non-leather bags offer more variety in terms of colors and patterned designs. Some types of leather require more care than others too. Soft, buttery leather is more delicate and pebbled leather wears well, while saffiano is as sturdy and  mess-resistant as it gets. Whether you choose leather or fabric, increase the longevity of your purse by storing it properly when not in use.

How do I match my clothes with a bright handbag?


A handbag is a great way to add a pop of color to your ensemble -- orange, red and green ones are fun -- but you do want to avoid clashing. Putting together a pink bag with a red dress is tricky but can work if the tones complement one another. Same rule of thumb applies to patterns. A bombshell leopard print purse would look out of place with a casual preppy outfit, but might be vivacious and unexpected with a polished twin set and skirt. Overall, bright bags are strikingly beautiful against neutral palettes or complementary colors.
