5 Bag Styles to Add to Your Christmas Wishlist

Must have bags this Christmas

With Christmas just around the corner, now’s the perfect time to start adding things to your Christmas wishlist! That also includes bags! They say you’re either a bag girl or a shoe girl. Some are both, while some are neither! In fact, there are some minimalists out there who can just shove everything they’ve got in their pockets. However, you can’t deny, on some occasions, you just need a good bag to carry your belongings.

If you’re anything like us and have a hard time saying no to every gorgeous handbag you lay your eyes on, you may have just come to the right place! Some would argue that collecting handbags is an art-form. While we would love to have a massive collection of beautiful handbags, sometimes it’s best to only have a core lineup of bags that would work for any and every occasion. That’s why we’ve compiled a collection of bag styles to add to your Christmas wishlist

Here are our top 5 bag styles you need to add to your Christmas wishlist!

1. Tote bag

If you’re searching for an ultra-versatile bag that’s still fashionable, a shopping tote is exactly what you need! With a myriad of functions, a tote bag can be used for just about anything! From the gym to uni and yup, you’ve guessed it! Shopping! Take a tote bag with you the next time go grocery shopping. Not only will you have room to carry your groceries, you’re also contributing to using less plastic. Saving the world while looking stylish? Yes, please! Longchamp Le Pliage tote bags are just some of our favourites. Its nylon material makes the bag water-resistant. We’re also big fans of Michael Kors bags ! With all the compartments in a Michael Kors tote, you won’t have a hard time searching for your belongings, as everything has its place!

2. Satchel

A satchel is a bag that features a top handle for you to carry like a briefcase, and also a longer, removable strap to carry it on your shoulder. Satchels are the types of bags you would want to bring to work or an interview. They’re great to have when you want more room than a clutch but without carrying everything you would in an oversized tote. It’s the perfect ‘middle ground’ of a bag. For those who love adding a touch of sophistication to their looks, opting for a structured satchel is the way to go! If you prefer something to suit your laidback personality, a slouchy design is one you might like.

3. Clutch

For nights out with the girls or a long-awaited dinner date, a clutch may just come in handy. Pun intended! Not only is it a timeless style, clutches are also great to have on days when you just don’t feel like lugging around a massive shopping tote. Plus, they make stunning accessories for formal events such as weddings, birthdays and so much more. Its small size often adds a touch of elegance and sophistication to any look! Some clutches also come with a strap or a chain, so you can still be handsfree on a night out! If you’re searching for clutches that won’t break the bank, Jo Mercer is a brand worth checking out! With heaps of styles available, you’re spoiled for choice.

4. Backpack

This is a no-brainer! A backpack is an essential part of your wardrobe, especially if you’re a student. A good and sturdy backpack is ideal if you have to carry heavy textbooks and a laptop from one class to another. Plus, a backpack also helps to distribute the weight of items you’re carrying evenly. Even if you’re not a student, a backpack is convenient for those weekend getaways too! Tumi has a great range of high quality backpacks that works for both students and working professionals alike. If you’re after a backpack suited for weekend getaways or outdoor activities, have a browse through Suissewin backpacks !

5. Crossbody bag

Last but not least, you can’t forget about the crossbody style! It’s a style that can be donned on a day filled with adventures. It’s especially great if you’re running errands or nights out with friends, as they keep you handsfree! When it comes to crossbody bags, Marc Jacobs bags are just some of our favourites! An iconic style from the brand is the Snapshot Camera Crossbody. Crafted in the finest Saffiano leather, this cute and compact crossbody offers plenty of room for your daily essentials. If you often reach for neutral colours in your clothing, here’s a tip – get a crossbody bag in a funky pattern or a bold colour to make a statement with your overall look!
