Modcloth Cambridge Satchel

For candy pink style that will last but won't decimate your bank account, we love Modcloth's Cambridge Satchel. Sweet but sleek, it's a way to get in on the ground floor.

Valextra Handy Clutch

Even Coco Chanel would approve of this structured white envelope clutch. Simple and perfect, it turns any outfit into an event.

Mulberry Alexa Leather Satchel

Boasting an equestrian Jane Austen vibe, the Mulberry satchel has quickly become a classic. Rich oak leather and brass details make this a bag you'll still be happily hauling around in a decade's time.

Alexander Wang Rocco Duffel

Details like pebbled leather and silver studs on the bottom make this dark grey duffel bag extra special. You'll be surprised at how much you can fit in the roomy compartment. It's the perfect style to take from casual to dressier occasions.

3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Satchel

This white leather Phillip Lim satchel is an elegant addition to any outfit, whether it's jeans and a tee or a sleek pencil skirt and complicated silk top. Just don't spill coffee on it.

Marc by Marc Jacobs Classic Q Hiller Hobo Bag

Slouchy, luxe shape and rich blue hue? Yes, please. Toss this tote over the shoulder of a white sundress or use it to add a jolt of color to a dignified business suit. It's well worth the splurge.

Balenciaga Arena Giant Gold Mini City

Balenciaga is the platonic ideal of bags. No, it doesn't unfold into a studio apartment, but this gorgeously detailed, rosy lambskin-leather bag is worth it. Hey, rent only lasts a month. You can carry this baby around for the rest of your life.

Rebecca Minkoff Snake Print Leather Kiss Kiss Cross-Body Bag

A little animal print gives this simple bag some stylish detail that's not overly trendy, so you can wear it for years to come. It's the perfect size to carry while running errands or going out to lunch. And, it's about as close as we want to get to anything reptilian.

Valextra Top Zip Tote

This bright blue leather tote bag will add a bold element to any outfit. With an investment bag, solid colors are always a safe choice. Wear it with a black-and-white ensemble to really show it off.

Miu Miu Embellished Shoulder Bag

A cute, feminine shoulder bag is a great investment. This embellished pink Miu Miu is about as girly as it gets. Pair it with white shorts and a floral top to play up the feminine vibe, or with a little black dress or neutral sheath to tone it down.

Loeffler Randall Rider Bag

We love the dark camel-colored leather that makes this handbag so classic. Everything has a place in one of it's three inner compartments—you may never want to switch bags again!
