The ultimate girl-on-the-go accessory? Your phone, obvi—but you aren’t just holding your phone in your hand. You’re slipping it into an uber stylish bag designed to take you from A to B without a hitch. No matter where your life takes you—play date at the park, sunny Sunday brunch, dinner with your honey—there’s a bag to meet your every need. Here are the best of the best fashion bags—and some essentials you absolutely have to stash inside.
The Hobo Bag
Their crescent silhouette and slight slouch make hobo bags especially appealing for the relaxed, go-anywhere-at-anytime lifestyle. It’s a style that epitomizes effortless chic, and what’s inside reflects your on-trend look perfectly: your nail color of the week, the lippie of the moment, a pair of sleek black sunnies, and gilded everything—your glam watch, your show-stopping earrings, and your chunky bangles.
The Boho Queen
If your uniform consists of denim cutoffs, gauzy tops, and denim vests with ankle boots, you clearly have bohemian style down to a science. An aztec bag on your arm completes the look to perfection, along with a change of accessories to mix and match with your outfits. A leather cuff and a pair of beaded or tassel earrings add a flirty touch, along with a pair of tortoiseshell sunglasses and a cute and colorful case for your phone.
The Tote Bag
Totes are the LBDs of the bag world. They’re versatile enough to go anywhere and large enough to hold everything. As you navigate the summer music festival circuit, be sure your sunblock, straw hat, and sassy sunglasses are inside. Need a change of accessories for your endless summer nights? Try a boldly printed watch and a lightweight scarf. (This bag is a dream for office use, too!)
With a duffel bag in your arsenal, you’re enjoying the best of both worlds. Style and function go hand in hand with this workhorse of a bag, which promises to make life a million times simpler thanks to its spacious interior. Use it to hold everything for your weekend getaway, from your fave pair of summer sandals to your date-night clutch to all of your travel essentials.
The Adventure Pack
Not just for campus life, backpacks easily fit into your big-city lifestyle. Indulge your sporty side and use it stow your fitness tracker, your chic plastic-alternative water bottle, and a baseball cap. Headed from the gym to the office? Stash a pair of shoes in there, too, and don’t forget your wallet!
The Diaper Bag
Play dates and park outings with the kids call for a heavy-duty bag that’s designed to work overtime, hold heavy loads, and look stylish all at once. Once you find The One, don’t hold back—fill it up and do not forget a thing. That’s what it’s there for, after all, so go ahead: diapers, extra bottles, toys, a change of clothes (for those inevitable blowouts), a passie or two. And your wallet, of course.
The Pet Parent
An outing with your furry friend calls for something adorable—namely a pet carrier that’s oh so fashionable. Your little one will appreciate the stylish storage facility and you’ll love the convenience of keeping your pet close at hand with all of the essentials nearby, including fun treats, a few toys, collar, and leash.
