11 Classic Bags That Are Worth the Investment
Whether you’re looking to make your first big fashion investment, add a covetable purse to a growing collection, or simply need an everyday bag to go with all your outfits, it’s always safe to go with a classic. What exactly does that mean? Think something that feels basic enough to stand the test of time yet chic enough that you’ll actually want to wear it season after season (and, hopefully, year after year). The good and bad news is that the fashion-sphere is rife with them—good because there are abundant options to choose from and bad because so many choices can feel overwhelming for a shopper. Not to worry, though, because as usual, we’re here to help you cut through the clutter by sharing our editors’ all-time favorites.
Scroll through to read about and shop the classic bags we love ranging from the $200s to the $2000s, so you can invest as you please.
“For me, this is the perfect statement handbag—not for being ostentatious or bold (not that there’s anything wrong with that), but for its subtle detailing, unique shape, and elegant-meets-edgy vibe. If you couldn’t tell, I’ve been thinking about this purchase for a while now, and considering how wearable this bag is for everyday styling, it’s worth every hard-earned penny.”
“The Juliette box bag from Tory Burch made it onto my radar a few months ago, and I’ve been carrying it everywhere since I snapped it up. It’s a true classic and the perfect day-to-night bag.”
“Investing in a good-quality bag doesn’t mean you have to spend thousands of dollars. I recently got this functional and adorable crossbody/top-handle stunner from The Daily Edited, and it does just the trick. Not only does it fit perfectly in all of my tote bags due to its thin shape, but TDE also offers chic monogramming to add that little something special to your everyday bag.”
