5 Chic Statement Bags Every 20something Should Own

Before you buy another bag, take this list with you.
CREATED WITH ELLE

They say our bags carry our entire lives, so it pays to choose them wisely. It also pays not to settle for a very ordinary one, especially if you’re the type who takes getting dressed for every occasion seriously. A stylish bag adds instant flair to even the plainest of our OOTDs. Carrying a statement piece gives the impression that you have everything figured out. Here are five such bags from the ELLE F/W 2019 Collection that you can get as staples for your wardrobe:

1. A Nude Handbag

This versatile bag gives off a relaxed, feminine vibe. Pair it with an all-white outfit for an approachable power look at the office, or carry it with a loose polo-and-skinny-jeans combo for a slouchy weekend look. Choose a structured nude handbag over a flimsy one—the color already evokes softness, so balance that with clean lines and edges.

2. A Neutral-Colored Tote Bag

Neutral accessories always find a way to balance out an outfit. Pair your tote with an ultra-feminine jacket. It's easy to carry which makes it a go-to bag for traveling in style.

3. A Peach Crossbody Bag

A subtle pop of color is always welcome. This warmer alternative to pink easily complements all skin tones and looks more grown-up while still being fun. Sling a peach crossbody over a sporty all-white outfit to draw more attention to your bag (a.k.a. your main accessory).

4. A Black Belt Bag

Belt bags are edgy yet super functional. They're perfect for a shopping spree when you need a hands-free bag yet want to look well-put-together. Work that vibe with a boxy black piece that features metallic details. Wear it with a monochromatic outfit and a dark lip for a chic off-duty look.

5. A Circular Shoulder Bag

The boho bag gets a new look. First seen made of rattan with tassels and bright floral embroidery, the circular shoulder bag has been updated for the season: black leather with metallic stitching. It’s a bag for nights out since black leather looks good with any party outfit. The gold and silver details also complement your jewelry.

A well-designed bag that can suit your evolving lifestyle and show your personality is always a good investment. The ELLE F/W 2019 Collection has a wide selection of stylish bags you can wear wherever you’re heading.
