The Top Designer Handbags to Add to Your Wishlist

A high-quality designer handbag is a pretty big investment to commit to and certainly one that you should think about carefully and budget accordingly. That being said, I am a big believer in investing in designer because it is an accessory that you will continually carry around wherever you go. Wear and tear is expected but I believe it is completely worth splurging a bit more to get the quality and craftsmanship necessary to have my handbag last for many years down the road. In this case, you want a style that can stand the test of time so you can not only rock it for years down the road, but could even pass it on to future generations. 

So without further ado, I present the top designer handbags to add to your wishlist! Everything from mini shoulder bags to large and in charge totes can be found here. Discover below.

The Top Designer Handbags to Add to Your Wishlist 

Not-So-Basic Shoulder Bags 

A cute, but practical shoulder bag is one of my personal favorite styles. Something incredibly chic, yet functional are the top priorities on my list. Look for durable shoulder straps, structured bodies and soft leather when shopping for this type of designer bag. To this day, one of my most coveted shoulder bags is the Chanel quilted bag and it always manages to make me feel like a million bucks when I wear it! 

Elevated Everyday Totes 

The tote bag remains to be one of the more flexible handbag silhouettes as you can quite literally stash almost anything you would need in it. This is a great handbag to invest in if you are someone who is constantly on-the-go and strapped for time. Grab your tote and fill it with the day’s necessities as you run from the gym, to the office, to happy hour. I linked some of the most timeless top designer tote bags below!

Top Designer Handbags for Sporty Fashionistas

For those who are looking for a designer handbag option that is more non-fuss and less touchy – try shopping for a style that is a bit more sportier and forgiving. To me, that means nylon! This easy-care fabrication is not only durable, but it tends to give any outfit a more effortlessly chic aesthetic that we always strive for. 

Best Evening Bags for Formal Events

Of course, one should always have a formal option on-hand for any last minute events. Traditionally, a clutch is used as it is the perfect mini accompaniment to any dress or skirt. The ideal evening handbag should be just large enough to carry the essentials – wallet, phone, lip gloss, etc. As formal events do not come about as often as others, stick to neutrals so you can rely on it for any occasion that might pop up!

If you are seeking reliability in your next big designer handbag splurge, I would suggest considering a backpack! They are way more forgiving on the body, especially for those who tend to carry a lot on a day-to-day basis. Investing in a backpack to bring to the office, school or wherever else you need to go will allow you to be more hands-free and worry-free as you do not need to worry about breakage or damage when it comes to purchasing designer. 

I hope this shopping guide helps you to decide on your next designer handbag splurge! As you can see, there are a wide variety of bodies and silhouettes that will pair seamlessly with your already existing wardrobe, as well as your wardrobe years down the road. Which top designer handbag is your favorite?
