If you're going to drop serious cash on a new wardrobe staple, chances are it's going to be on a special accessory — like a killer bag. It's something that you'll use over and over again, as opposed to a quick-hit fashion item you might only wear a handful of times (and inevitably ends up in the black hole that is the bottom of your closet). Okay, okay, before you roll your eyes at the idea of spending a significant chunk of change on any item, just remember the cost-per-wear trick.
If that Fendi bag goes with just about everything in your wardrobe (and most importantly, your daily uniform), it's probably worth it. To help you find the perfect purse to fit you, we're sharing the best designer carryalls of the season in a range of silhouettes and colors, from Dior's ladylike top-handle satchel to Prada's patchwork tote. Click on to find your new go-to. If nothing else, there's some serious eye-candy — and looking won't cost you a thing.
