From the inherited classic to the quirky statement purse, these are the handbag essentials every woman should have in her wardrobe.

THE PRACTICAL CROSSBODY BAG


Soho Leather Disco Bag, $980 (P49,000), Gucci

A bag in a neutral color that is big enough to hold all of your essentials but small enough to wear crossbody.

A CASUAL WEEKEND BAG


Bucket Bag, $595 (P29,750), Mansur Gavriel

A bucket bag that can be worn with jeans and sneakers.

THE INVESTMENT PIECE


Hermés Birkin Bag, $14,999 (P749,950), 1stDibs

Pick a classic bag that can also be a literal investment—Birkins have outpaced both the S&P 500 and the price of gold.

A QUIRKY STATEMENT BAG


Mark Cross Grace Shoulder Bag, $2,395 (P119,750), Net-a-Porter

Look for a purse with whimsical stripes, flowers, or embroidery.

THE EVERYDAY TOTE


Neverfull MM Tote, $1,260 (P63,000), Louis Vuitton

A tote that can hold everything you need for a day at the office, and is sturdy enough to withstand your daily commute.

A COLORFUL PURSE


Metallic Edge City Bag, $1,429 (P71,450), Balenciaga

A handbag in a shade that is bright enough to add a pop of personality to any outfit.

THE FANCY EVENING CLUTCH


Nancy Gonzalez Metallic Python Clutch, $1,650 (P82,500), Bergdorf Goodman

A python, metallic, or rhinestone clutch that is neutral enough to match with any of your evening dresses.

A BREEZY SUMMER BAG


Ark Bag, $100 (P5,000), Cult Gaia

A straw tote or structured wood bag can work for the beach, the pool, or a warm day in the city.

AN HEIRLOOM BAG


Vintage Chanel Classic Jumbo Single Flap Bag, $2,900 [P145,000], The Real Real

A vintage handbag in a classic silhouette, preferably passed down from your mother or grandmother.

THE DAYTIME TO NIGHTTIME CLUTCH


Clare V. Calf Hair Leopard Print Foldover Clutch, $275 [P13,750], Nordstrom

A casual printed clutch can easily transition from a meeting to a dinner date.

THE SATCHEL


Proenza Schouler PS1 Leather Satchel bag, $1,780 [P89,000], Neiman Marcus

A satchel bag is both chic and utilitarian.

A PROFESSIONAL TOP HANDLE BAG


Galleria Bag, $2,390 [P119,500], Prada

A timeless leather bag in a neutral tone is polished enough for the office.
