As women, our handbags are one of our best friends. We need something that fits our style, perfect for each occasion, and reliably long lasting to be by our side. Although handbag styles have drastically changed as a woman’s accessory, there are certain shapes and silhouettes that remain part of the handbag repertoire, and for good reason. These bags are known to be a girl’s best friend.
From small purses to oversized shoppers, there’s always a silhouette to fit your ever-changing needs. Women are multitasking creatures, and our purses should do the same. But it is okay to have more than just one (or ten for that matter). When you find a good one, it’s hard to say let go.
A go to for the on-the-go kind of girl. Choose a fold over clutch for more casual and easy style, an envelope clutch for a clean cut look or play with colors and textures to make it the perfect girl’s night out accessory.
2. Cross body
For hands free, simple style a cross body is cool, convenient and allows you to keep your things close by (a necessity in any big city, especially Paris). A festival must-have but also a great weekend bag to tag along.

When you’re in need of a carry-all kind of bag, a tote is usually the safest option. It will without a doubt hold your umbrella, books, camera, make-up bag, wallet and just about anything else you want to “tote” along with you.
5. The Utility bag
We all have one, and if you don’t then you certainly need one; the everlasting, goes with everything bag that is extremely versatile. Try a leather backpack or my personal favorite, Longchamp’s Le Pliage nylon tote. It folds down to small square, is waterproof, spacious and without a doubt a fit for every outfit.
