When you think about timeless staples, you automatically think of little black dresses, pearl earrings, and white button-downs, among others. When it comes to handbags, though, we all have a favorite silhouette. From totes and shoppers to fanny packs and crossbody styles, they all have a place in our closets (and hearts). And though we might alternate between them, when it comes to what colors we gravitate toward, that’s when they become truly seasonless. Brown, red, black, mustard, and forest-green styles work for every season, and today we’re going to prove it. Scroll on ahead to see which one’s your favorite (and maybe shop a new silhouette).
Black will always be, well, the new black. You can never go wrong when purchasing a black purse.
The perfect size. Little Liffner is a cool brand to know about. Say hello to your new shoulder bag. For your phone. Just stunning.
Just like black, you can’t go wrong with a brown bag. Simply go through the fashion archives and you’ll see more than a handful of brown bags you’d still wear today.
I love the faux-lizard finish. Such a great sculptural shape. So ’90s. So sleek. Try to hobo bag.
When you want to make your outfit pop, you can always count on a red bag. Red bags are our favorite styling trick to elevate a neutral outfit.
A bag you can wear again and again. We’re always a sucker for a good mini bag. This add will elevate any outfit, instantly.
Contrary to its slime-green cousin, forest green will never go out of style. There’s something about this hue that makes any bag look impeccably chic.
We actually want this bag in every color. Puffy and cool. A fun tote. The cutest mini.
If you already have your neutral bag collection set and want to expand to colors, we highly suggest going for a mustard bag.
The Row? Yes, please. You can never go wrong with Saint Laurent. To wear with jeans and a tee. Perfect for storing makeup.
