Unless you're one of those fashion week front rowers who happily pairs a glittering minaudière with her puffer coat and jeans, there are probably some bags in your collection you reserve for nighttime only. And, conversely, there are likely a couple of beat-up satchels or bulky totes you keep far away from your cocktail dresses. The few bags that can do double-duty, however—taking you from Saturday brunch to birthday drinks or Monday meetings to after-work events—now those are the real winners. And this season, there are dozens of seriously cute styles that fit the bill.
For the more practically minded among you, crossbody pouches are a perennial winner for hands-free accessorizing, and for spring, you'll find versions with tough metal hardware and floral appliqués alike. Or, if you're willing to sacrifice some of that convenience for the sake of fashion, you'll find the mini bag trend hard to resist—whether you settle on a structured tote or a velvet clutch.
Below, shop 15 bags that will take you from day to night and back again—without sacrificing your style.
