Tell us otherwise what you will, but we ladies and our obsession with bags pay no attention to that. We know it’s better than owning just one essential bag and calling it a day. But we are also not so stupid to follow changing trends every season. All we’re saying is that every woman needs to own these 12 different types of bags in her wardrobe, no matter what bag styles come and go. Consider these types of bags evergreen and suitable for the specific situation that life has to throw at you. Happy reading and shopping!
