Let’s face it, without a stylish bag to carry our daily essentials in, life would be rough and anything but chic. Whether matters are heavy or light, for a statement bold or bright, here is the roundup of our top four designer handbags for women that make this Saturday's National Handbag Day worthy of a celebration.
Akris Ai Medium Convertible Reversible Shearling Tote
If you know Akris, you know its expertise in crafting the perfect tote is no joke. Perfect for this season for more reasons than one, the iconic ‘Ai’ tote is available in taupe! Unique to the design of this awesome bag is the reversible feature, giving you the option to sport a chic leather or a plush shearling exterior. As if you were not sold already, slim handles and a detachable dust pouch give you the maximum use inside and out. This bag gives meaning to “all in one;” with too many features to count.

Dragon Diffusion Nantucket Large Basket
Dragon Diffusion could not have made a more practical bag if it tried! This bag holds everything, and when we say everything, we mean it!

Perfect for traveling and everyday use, the flexible interior provides a home to phones, hand sanitizers, and all loose items that love to float. With sizes ranging from small to large and colors from forest to sabia (as pictured), this universal tote has been flying off of the shelves for all the right reasons.
