Colored bags are undeniably pretty to look at, and they work wonders in elevating a plain outfit. The only downside is, they can be a bit restrictive, especially for everyday use; you'd often have to think about whether that colored tote goes with your outfit or not. Case in point: If you're looking to invest in an expensive designer bag, you can't go wrong with purchasing a versatile and timeless black bag.

To start you off, here are some of the classic black bags from various designer labels that are worth investing in:

The fashion house's iconic quilted tote that was originally designed by Coco Chanel in 1955 and was re-designed by Karl Lagerfeld in the '80s is still wildly popular today, and it's considered the ultimate investment bag. According to a report by the Telegraph that was published in 2017, the Classic Flap bag "has increased its average value by an impressive 140 percent over the last five years." So as long as you keep it in tiptop shape, this bag is a reliable investment piece that you can resell in the years to come.
