The Only 4 Handbags You’ll Ever Need

Having an attainable wardrobe is a major focus on Wellesley & King, and you’ll notice that there are select few handbags that I rotate through in almost every outfit post. I’ve lined up my four go-to’s for you guys into one handy list, and I stand by the fact that you need nothing more.

1.) Vera Bradley All-in-One Crossbody

Use it for: anything and everything

This little guy is true to its name: all-in-one. The long strap makes it a hands-free crossbody, while the wrist strap converts it into an easy wristlet. Or, remove both straps, and use it as a wallet. It has a ton of card slots, and a separate zipper area for coins/lipstick. I carry it everywhere I go as my primary wallet, and when I don’t need my entire tote bag, I just pull it out and use it as a standalone mini bag.

2.) Rebecca Minkoff Backpack

Use it for: exploring, errands, travel

This guy is the most chic way to tote around my camera. I absolutely adore the shape, and it fits a surprising amount. It’s a great companion for walks around town, and mornings with photo shoots. I can’t stand to have a bag falling off my shoulder, so this backpack is a great alternative when you need a little extra space.

3.) Clare Vivier Leopard Clutch

Use it for: special occasions, dinner dates

This leopard clutch is my go-to for date nights and special occasions. Leopard is most definitely a neutral, and this clutch is the punctuation for a little black dress, pair of sleek trousers, or print-mixed with florals and stripes!

4.) Kate Spade Structured Satchel

Use it for: professional meetings, the office

Last but not least, a classic satchel is imperative for professional meetings and days at the office. I throw my All-in-One into my tote, along with my planner, and a few beauty back-ups. I’ve always loved the simple lines of this Kate Spade satchel, and there continues to be an updated similar version year after year.
