There are a few things that every woman needs to have in her closet. There are the basics like, the little black dress, a strand a pearls and the luggage handbag like I am showing off on Commonwealth Avenue. It is the perfect timeless bag that will go with everything!
What I love about a luggage bag is the multiple ways you can wear it. You can dress it up with a chic dress for a night out on the town or you can dress it down with a pair of jeans and a T-shirt for a day of shopping or in class. When you do dress it down it helps give your outfit that little oomph it needs to let people you know that you’re a Fashionista but may have pulled an all-nighter last night so jeans and a tee was the only option. I decided to go for the college casual look and use the luggage bag and the luggage flats as neutral accents to understate the bright red and blue hues of the outfit as a whole.
We all know the classic rule about matching your bag to your shoes and a luggage bag makes that easy. As you can see I paired them with some Tory Burch flats but I know as soon as a chill hits Boston I will be pairing them with some riding boots. Like most Boston University students I wear riding boots until about April so having a bag that matches them is of course important!
Lastly, a luggage handbag is an investment because you can wear it for the rest of your life so I say splurge! Whether it be a Louis Vutton, a Michel Kors or a kate spade you won’t be sorry because when it lasts you ten years you’ll be thanking this post. Also, think about what style you like most. Is it a tote bag, cross-body or satchel? The fact of the matter is that you will be seeing a lot of this bag and a lot of people will be seeing it on you so make sure it says something about you. What my luggage tote bag says about me is that I am a busy girl that is always on the move so I need a lot a roomy bag to keep a day’s worth of must-haves.
