It’s been said that picking up a designer bag is a better investment than real estate. Which is music to our can’t-afford-real-estate-but-wouldn’t-mind-an-expensive-bag ears. That said, if you are going to spend a chunk of your hard-earned cash on a bag (and believe us, you don’t have to go the designer route), you might as well pick one up that’s super versatile. Something than can go from the office, to brunch, to a night on the town and still hoard not only your lipstick du jour, but also your subway pass, wallet and probably that phone cord (read: lifeline) you need to carry around with you. Whether you’re looking for something more structured, more boho, a cross-body variety or are looking injecting a bit of colour into your wardrobe, we’ve rounded up our top picks for cute bags that will impress everyone, from your boss to your BFF.
