It’s all about the PKW baby: phone, keys, wallet. But, if you’re a true betch, you’ve got a lot of other random shit you need to tote around with you all day every day that you absolutely can’t live without. I never bought into those “What’s in my bag?” celebrity exposé BS because that stuff doesn’t even cover half of it. Most betches have naturally defined, toned shoulders from hauling around enough stuff to survive the apocalypse. Here’s our favorite handbag picks for Spring to help us keep our shit together, organized by what will kill your month's budget and what will be fashionable but still leave over enough to pay rent. You're welcome.
Chloé’s Drew bag is going viral. The French label’s newest cross-body is famous for its wearability. Less of a bag and more of an outfit essential, the Drew becomes an integral part of any outfit it’s paired with. The Spring 2016 Drews come in a muted color palette, as well as few colorful 1970s-inspired options for the far-out betch. We love the classic gold hardware, too.
For another colorful cross-body options, GiGi New York's makes a python-embossed Jenn bucket bag that we’re obsessed with.
For the edgy betch, Philip Lim is the way to go. The label recently celebrated its ten-year anniversary and is known for its highly structured, angular Patchli Satchels. We want one in every color and size, but black is definitely the way to go to match all your Spring outfits.
We can thank Kendall and Kylie for skyrocketing the Givenchy Antigona bag to its current level of fame. We love its cool simplicity and athletic vibes. You know how much betches love athleisure.
The Chanel boy bag literally brings tears to our eyes it’s so perfect. FYI, you can’t get the Chanel Boy online unless you go through secondhand websites like The RealReal and Tradesy.
Rebecca Minkoff also makes an amazing black quilted shoulder bag in a similar design that you can, like, actually buy.
We’re really into huuuuge satchels this season. How am I expected to leave my apartment without my entire makeup bag, three pairs of sunglasses, my laptop, and a full bottle of wine? Bigger is always better in my book. The Balenciaga Classic City bag makes me wanna sell my eggs basically so.
Also this Rebecca Minkoff style is to die for and (probably) won't put me below the poverty line.
