Alexander Wang Tote, See by Chloé 24 Hour Bag, DvF Shoulder Bag, Derek Lam Camera Bag, Proenza Schouler Clutch

Your twenties isn’t the decade for serious, budget-busting investment pieces – save those for your thirties! Rather, it’s a time to build a strong foundation, ensuring you have a bag to suit every purpose and occasion. Polish and simplicity will take a girl far, especially as you pave the way for your future, but don’t be too serious. This is the time to have some fun. You learn as you get older: it’s all about balance.  Whether as a gift guide or as reference, use this to build your bag wardrobe.
