The 5 Basic Handbags You Should Have in your Closet - Susie O's Handbags

1.   Everyday "in style" black bag

This essential can be worn year round. Its common for many of us to have a couple...but are they an updated style?. I love classics with a twist! A fabulous bag that can "make" an outfit.... or else an outdated one can take away from your outfit.

Callista Crafts | Perissa Noir Cross – Black



    2.  "In style" black clutch or wristlet.

    I always encourage a classic with a twist. A twist can be special stitching, some fringe, the shape of the bag or flap, texture of the leather, etc... I like the style that can be dressed up or dressed down!

    3.  A zip top travel tote.

    Lightweight is always a good way to go!! Some travel totes come with a detachable crossbody strap which can be very useful when you need your hands to carry or pull another travel piece.

    4.  A Crossbody

    Depending on your body types (tall, average, short/petite) and/or need, get one that zip up so you can also take it when you travel. This is an essential travel piece. Outside pockets are a great feature. Personally, I like a pocket on the back panel so it's against my body.

    5.  Spring/Summer every day bag.

    You can have a beautiful washed down metallic bag- they tend to lend themselves day to night usage. Another option, depending on your personally style, can be a neutral color (like a nude, light taupe, creamy white, or beige).
