Why you need it: No wardrobe is complete without a classic leather handbag. Whether you are wearing a tailored suit, or jeans and a t-shirt, a classic bag can make any outfit look great.
Shopping Tips: If you want a bag that you can take with you wherever you go, choose a medium-size bag (not too large), with classic features, no bold buckles, rivets, or patterns. Also, you will want to stay with a neutral color like black or brown leather. A classically-styled bag won’t go out of style and can be carried season after season.
Be sure to check inside the handbag for the number of interior pockets and how they are organized. If you like to have separate compartments for everything (i.e. cell phone, pens, makeup) you will want be sure there is sufficient room.
