No matter how many you have in your arsenal, there is always that one bag you use more than any other. Investing in this elusive bag doesn’t come guaranteed. It’s more of a hit-or-miss process, and bags can surprise you. The one you think you’ll use all the time can end up in the back of your closet. You might go through a few so-called daily bags before you actually find the one that works for everything, and the one styled to keep you happy and chic all year, both in a single package.
