Upscale or Casual: There is a Handbag to Suit Your Needs

While it has long been said that a man’s best friend is his dog, a women’s best friend is a little harder to figure out. For some, shoes are the nectar that bring an outfit to life. Then there are the accessory queens who can change the whole ambience of an outfit in moments, and can seemingly get away with every style.

If handbags are your bag, then it can feel impossibly stimulating to have such a wide selection to choose from, and with so many great designers vying for your attention, sometimes it helps to have a comparison available of the latest trends and designs.

We look at 3 of your favorite designers and show case the best of both casual and upscale available in today’s collections. While technically you only need one of each, we fully encourage collecting as many handbags as you feel is necessary!
