Whether you are a girly girl or not, bags are one thing that all women agree on. Of course, the type depends on one’s personal style and preference.
However, in as much as we love bags, it is so easy to find yourself in desperate need of a particular bag for an occasion, despite owning a ton. The good news is that there is a simple solution to this, and better news— it will save you so much money, which if you do not know by now, is what I’m about.
With that, how about I also save you time (which is money) and jump right into the 7 types of bags every woman should own, that will guarantee you have something chic to hold your favorite lip gloss, phone or even a snack— no matter the occasion;
A classic shoulder bag is one that I know every woman already owns. In fact, this entire list is meant to offer alternatives for the one-bag type of girl. This everyday staple, especially in a neutral color, goes well with every outfit and is usually big enough to fit your daily essentials effortlessly.
For those casual outings when you want your hands free, reach out for a cross-body bag. If I’m being completely honest, this right here is my favorite type of bag and my number one go-to. Not only because they’re light and super comfortable, but also because when worn right (cross-body), they put you a step ahead of thieves.
Be it a day/evening clutch, this little number (although good for only 2–3 items) is perfect for elegant occasions; not only for their class, but also because their petite size ensures all the attention is directed towards the rest of your outfit.
You know those stylish babes that travel lightly?
Yes, the ones that always have an effortless swag about them. Well, most often than not, you’ll find them with a satchel bag. You’ll find these type of bags in leather mostly, hence less susceptible to wear and tear. They are also quite spacious, with various compartments, making them best suited for short trips.
And guess what? They make them for men too (if he is not carrying a briefcase, best believe it’s a satchel).

Every successful sleep over story begins with an over-sized handbag. With this wardrobe essential, a lady can pack, well, everything that she needs for a day to night transition; I’m talking shoes, makeup and a complete change of clothes. Heck! You can even do some impulse shopping and an over-sized handbag will have you covered.
Needless to say, a backpack is the cross-body bag’s sexy cousin. These may be the most comfortable types of bags around, because 1) their two straps evenly distribute its weight, and 2) like the cross-body bag, it also comes with the hands-free advantage.
And no, you do not have to relive your school-going days— go for the big girls’ stylish designs that are in line with your personal style.
Last but certainly not least, a fanny pack is the great wizard of bags. The obvious advantage being the fact that this versatile staple can be worn in different ways: its adjustable straps allow you to pull it off from the waist, shoulder, and cross-body (on the back or in front)
Also known as the bum/belt bag, the fanny pack comes in different designs— from sporty and casual to chic and downright trendy, allowing you to stand out, no matter the occasion. All these, without forgetting the hands-free upside, are more than enough reasons why you should invest in this piece, like yesterday.
