1. A CROSSBODY BAG
Crossbody bags are extremely popular right now because of their versatility. They are easy to carry your must haves without having to carry a heavy purse. You can also wear them in many ways such as across your body or as a clutch. They come in a variety of colors and patterns.
When to wear it: Anytime. Both day or night. You can use for casual wear or for date nights if you transition it to a clutch.

2. A CLUTCH
I was just recently introduced to the style of clutches and was so happy I did. Clutches are mainly for classy events where you don’t want to walk around with a bag slung across your shoulders.
These purses are great for clutter prevention because they are usually only big enough for your essentials such as your driver license, lip gloss and credit card. I love having a variety of colors to go with my outfits so I usually design my own like this embroidered one.
When to wear it: Anytime you are going to a fancy affair such as dinners, weddings, and dancing.

3. AN OVERSIZED BAG
When I need a bag that I can use to fit everything I need and for traveling, my bucket bag never fails me.If you are making this your primary purse, go for a neutral color that will go with a multitude of outfits such as this camel bag. Also since it is my go to bag for almost everything I didn’t mind in investing in a quality bag that I know will last me a lifetime.
When to wear it: This is the casual bag for going to the park, grocery shopping, doctor’s office etc. It is not a great fit as an evening bag.
This one comes in a variety of colors at Sseko.
4. A TOTE BAG
These bags are one of the most casual and cheapest of the bags that you will need to tote around a lot of things. I absolutely love the various patterns and colors you can find them in. But the best ones are the totes with a strong waterproof liner to hold wet items such as beach towels.
When to wear it: I use this type of bag for going to the beach, picnics, groceries and as a gym bag.
