9 Styling Ideas That Prove You'll Never Get Tired of This Investment Bag

I'm not one to shy away from bold accessories… In fact, in the last month alone, I've purchased a zebra-print belt, embellished slides, and enough rainbow jewelry to rival any third-grader's collection. However, when it comes to investment pieces, my practical gene kicks in, and I always end up opting for classic styles and timeless colors to ensure I'll get endless use out of each purchase. The accessory I currently have my sights set on (and my shopping cart loaded with)? This new quilted black leather bag from Balmain.

I've seen it styled in so many chic ways all over Instagram, proving it has an incredible cost per wear. It would be truly difficult to find an outfit that isn't made cooler by way of this handbag, but these nine are currently topping my list.

The quilted leather details and gold chain on the bag really pop against a neutral slip dress. Finishing this look off with everyone's favorite S/S 19 sandals is really just the cherry on top.

Hot pink is set to be one of the big color trends for F/W 19, meaning you can wear this look for months to come.

The Balmain bag makes this unexpected yellow denim–and–simple black tee outfit feel instantly more elevated.

The tailored jacket, structured bag, and pointed shoes take this crop top–and-denim outfit from day to night.

Proof that a little print goes a long way.

This outfit is very "business on the top, party on the bottom" in the best way.
