If you love fashion, chances are you love bags and handbags just as much and strongly agree that one bag is never enough. Our fast-paced life can take us anywhere in a matter of hours, from work to play and from play to more play, so we better be armed with bags that are functional, cute, and can easily transform our outfit.
Let’s take a look at some situations that call for bags of different shapes, sizes, prints, and materials to make you at home anywhere and anytime. There are specific situations for various shapes and sizes of bags and we will cover 5 categories and their usage:
A medium size top handle
This bag is great for shopping, walking, browsing, touching, considering, and trying stuff on. All these activities require free hands, so you really need a bag that is medium-size, can hold all your essentials, and has a handle and a shoulder strap for whatever way you choose to carry it. Colors for this day-time adventure companion can be bright or toned down, whatever you prefer. They can even be all rainbow gamut and complete with fringes.
Saks Fifth Avenue has quite a selection of such bags just for you:
- Loewe Small Puzzle Fringe Shoulder Bag
- Danse Lente Mini Johnny Geometric Leather Bucket Bag
- Prada Tie-Dye Front Flap Leather Shoulder Bag
- Versace Top Handle Quilted Leather Bag

A small shoulder bag
This type of bag is perfect for a date or a night out with friends. Choose the kind that will show your personality, complete with sparkles or ornate embellishments to stand out from the crowd. It should be small and hold just your credit cards, your phone, and a lipstick, so choose tiny and light. Always go for less rather than more when it comes to size and sparkles, you want to stay classy and not overwhelming.

We advise going for classic and universal shape, so that you could wear it every day and enjoy complimenting your personal style with it. There are definitely plenty of options when it comes to crossbody bags:

There will be days when you will need a bigger bag for those times when a snack or a book will be great to have, like a doctor’s appointment or a meeting out of town. These are times when having an open top tote can be a lifesaver.
Some fashionistas swear by having a few bags in this category simply because they can have a few different sizes and colors. Consider getting at least one with a shoulder strap to use when your tote gets heavy. For days when you don’t have to lug a whole bunch of stuff, grab one that just fits snugly on your arm.
