100%. Bags are officially considered a woman’s plus one, for a reason. A stylish bag can really amp up your look. City bags for when you have little to carry, wicker baskets for Sunday brunches, totes for shopping days—there are bags to complement every look you need to pull off. Plus, you don’t need to have too many bags. I invest in one bag a year, and it really helps helm my budget and at the same time add to my collection of bags. I have a mini city bag in black from Zara which complements almost my entire wardrobe. So yes, long story short, bags are as essential as it gets. Carrie Bradshaw from Sex & The City was mugged of her iconic Fendi baguette (not bag) and the scene still breaks the heart of fashion lovers.
