If there’s one thing you need in your accessories arsenal, it’s an investment bag. You know, a ‘forever’ kind of handbag or clutch that’s not only timeless in style but will stand the test of time, too. While we’re all guilty of having casual liaisons with ‘It’-bag-inspired arm candy, a lasting love affair with a strong, reliable, good-looking, first-class carryall is what we all really need in our lives.
Is the word ‘investment’ scaring you off a little? Don’t worry, we’re not suggesting you drain your savings account and drop thousands of dollars on a Birkin or LV bag (though, a girl can dream…) – there are plenty of classic, high-quality bags out there that may require a bit of saving but won’t leave you in debt from now until December.
Sure, you may have to think twice about buying lunch five days a week and forgo that skinny cap every morning (for a while, anyway), but when you find the perfect investment bag, it’ll all be worth it. Promise.
So, what investment carryalls and clutches are on our radar this season? We’ve culled our wish-list down to these 16 beauties that we can totally see ourselves still toting around in one, two, 10 (heck, even 20!) years from now. Can’t you, too?
