Apologies to your wallet.
1. Minimalist and Ladylike
The top-handle bag was huge in the 1940s and 50s, when fashion was ladylike but embracing modernity. We wish our grandmothers had saved more of their vintage styles, but luckily designers have stepped up to the plate with chic, minimalist pieces in a variety of finishes.
A buttery soft leather bag in classic black is the perfect way to start your top-handle bag collection.
On the days that you can’t be bothered to put together an Instagram-worthy outfit, a fabulous, outrageous, and downright look-at-me bag can make you feel like a million bucks. Pair them with jeans and a sweater, or your favorite cocktail dress. There’s no wrong way to rock one.
3. Treat Yourself
Sometimes you need to blow an entire paycheck on the bag of your dreams, and you know what? That is just fine by us. You do you, girl. Any of these top-handle styles will stand the test of time and are well worth the investment.
There’s something simultaneously precious and modern about Edie Parker’s bags, and the Oval style in particular. Just imagine carrying this around to your holiday parties. Perfection.
