For a mere accessory, the handbag has a strong identity. It can be practical, luxurious, mass-produced or handcrafted.

Whether fashionable or functional, the everyday handbag is something you use on a consistent basis. Don’t let the repetition bore you — yes, the bag has to go with everything but make it a statement. Let this  bag be the one you invest in.

Go for luxury. Look for a bag made by a notable designer or brand but avoid the impulse to settle for basic  “it-girl”  bags like the ones on the arm of every posh girl in the city.

Look for handbags that feature design elements such as high-quality leather, jewelry-quality straps, and powerful shapes. You want your bag to be durable, timeless and bold.
