The Best Shoulder Bags To Keep

While some of the best shoulder bags are timeless, not all are. Trends are all fun and games for a while, but not for longevity. If you’re on the lookout for a shoulder bag that has enough style to last you through multiple seasons, we’ve got your back. The key is to stick with neutral colors—but just because you’re keeping things simple in color doesn’t mean you have to with design. For example, the VERSACE La Medusa Satin Crystal-Embellished Pouch-On-Chain Bag and the LOEFFLER RANDALL Crystal Gathered Flat Pouch Bag deliver a trendy timeless style you can’t find just anywhere. Minimal, yet daringly stylish, the greatest bags are ones that are unique. After all, what’s the point of picking the best if it’s not special. Experimenting with fashion is all about getting outside of your comfort zone, and these bags push you do just that.

Trendsetter For A Season

Making a statement with the best shoulder bags is easy. If you have enough timeless accessories and not so much trendy ones, these options were created for you. Sometimes you need to take risks in fashion, and the best way to do that is with a handbag. Easy to pair with most dresses (especially LBDs), you can get away with rocking these two options effortlessly. The LEMAIRE Croissant Small Leather Cross-body Bag is one eye-catcher you don’t usually find anywhere. Similarly, the CULT GAIA Bess Rhinestone Shoulder Bag is a hidden gem most wouldn’t dare to wear. But just because something is intimidating, doesn’t mean you should shy way. The best shoulder bags can be average, but they don’t always have to be.
