shopping for luxury style at contemporary prices has never been easier.
i don't believe in buying something just because it's a 'luxury brand'. instead, go with what you love, what suits your budget, lifestyle, and needs. if something checks those boxes, chances are it will transcend trends and become a wardrobe essential.
these are my best bets to start with if you're looking to build an edited and functionally chic handbag collection:
1. the minimalist slouchy tote // Celine-esque with a bonus – a handy shoulder strap! soft leather, lightweight, roomy enough for work and weekend. (another excellent option: see my review of Everlane's leather tote.)
3. the trio crossbody // this topped my year-end favorites last year, and is still one of my best wardrobe purchases of all time. after 1.5 years, it still looks new.
4. the structured medium satchel (in more colors) // sleek silhouette, clean lines, work appropriate.
5. the sportif duffel // the well-rounded sporty classic, perfect for travel too.
what's your go-to bag these days?
