Charles Paquin - Top 5 styles you need in your closet

Top 5 styles you need in your closet

Has Fashion Week inspired you to revamp your collection? Are you looking to do some early spring cleaning? Whatever the case may be, it’s important to take a step back and to carefully think about what exactly is in your closet. One way to do so is to determine what your core pieces are and to figure out what could be missing. It’s one thing to have dozens of handbags, but do you have the versatility you need for daily life? When thinking about any collection, grouping things into categories can be useful to gauge what you have in abundance and what may be lacking. This week, we’re highlighting five key styles we believe are MUST-haves in any luxury lover's closet. We’re talking about shoulder bags, tote bags, handbags, crossbody bags, and pochettes. Honestly, we can’t think of a better collection that doesn’t include these types of designer bags. To give you an extra boost of inspiration, we’ve come up with a list of bags for each category that are trending in our collection.



Shoulder bags are simply essential

Who doesn’t love a good shoulder bag? Odds are that you already have a dependable shoulder bag that you can count on for everyday use. While they can sometimes be carried by hand, they tend to look and feel their best when they’re gracefully hanging from your shoulder. That being said, don’t be content with a simple shoulder bag to fill your practical needs. Luxury shoulder bags can be a great way to carry your belongings for the day in a comfortable yet stylish fashion. Since designer shoulder bags are made to hang off the shoulder, they tend to be centred around the design of elegant straps that can either make or break the bag. Case in point, one of our most in-demand Louis Vuitton shoulder bags is the Looping bag. Available in either PM, MM, or GM sizes, the Looping bag features a stunning “looping” handle that catches the eye. We can’t think of a luxury shoulder bag quite like it. If you’re missing an elegant used shoulder bag in your collection, the Looping bag may just be what you’re looking for. We offer an extensive selection of Louis Vuitton bags in the Looping style that you can browse through.

Carry what you need in style with tote bags

Tote bag… shoulder bag… what’s the difference? Like any shoulder bag, tote bags are often carried on the shoulder, but they are often characterised by their large shape and loose fabric. They offer all the space you would need for a day out. Some tote bags are made to be baggy so that your belongings won’t feel constricted, while others are just so big that their rigid structure won’t be affected by your heavier and pointier belongings (within reason). If you’re someone who often has to carry a lot during the day, then tote bags are your best friend. One of our most popular designer tote bags is a Chanel tote that we all know and love. The Chanel Medallion Tote is simple yet exquisite due the ample amount of gorgeous Chanel caviar leather that’s used to cover its spacious surface. But really, the gold or silver toned medallion is what makes a Chanel Medallion… a Chanel Medallion. You’ll find many authentic used Chanel Medallion Totes among our collection. We also have to give Louis Vuitton their dues and mention a close second. The Neverfull is a beyond popular tote bag that’s sought out by almost everyone. If you’re thinking about going for a more casual, yet still luxurious tote bag, the Neverfull may just be the bag for you. Our selection of used Louis Vuitton Neverfull bags is sure to pique your interest.

Handbags are the quintessential designer bag

The most common type of bag in anyone’s closest has to be the handbag - and for good reason. They can be simple or glamorous, and are easy to carry for on the go convenience. Handbags have been around for a long time and are one of the oldest types of luxury bags out there. The Speedy bag, one of our most popular luxury handbag styles, showcases this perfectly. The Speedy was in fact Louis Vuitton’s first-ever designer handbag which was designed exclusively for Audrey Hepburn in 1930. What Audrey Hepburn liked the most about the Speedy was its ease of use and convenient size. Something all good luxury handbags try to accomplish. We previously wrote about the Speedy and other top Louis Vuitton styles; in case you’d like to read more on it.   Ever since then, the Speedy has withstood the test of time and remains an extremely popular Louis Vuitton handbag. The Louis Vuitton Speedy bag comes in a variety of sizes, styles, and materials. We carry a large selection of pre owned Louis Vuitton Speedy bags that you can browse.

Crossbody bags - functional luxury at its best

Don’t overlook the crossbody bag - ever. While crossbody bags aren’t the first thing you’ll be reaching for in the event of a fancy soirée, they will be at the top of your list for easy everyday wear. Crossbody bags can be life changing - if you haven’t already used one by now. Being able to go hands-free for the day brings a whole new level of comfort and practicality you didn’t think was possible. A good-quality luxury crossbody bag will last you a life-time if properly cared for and will shine when you really need it. But honestly, you’ll really notice how game-changing they are when you’re travelling abroad. While crossbody bags aren’t thought of as the chicest type of bag out there, you’d be surprised by the quality and luxury you can find to complete your collection. One of our most sought after used crossbody bags is the Tessuto Crossbody Bag by Prada. The Tessuto Crossbody Bag is perfectly sized for everyday use and features an adjustable strap for your convenience. However, you’ll find that many of our pre owned Prada crossbody bags are worth looking at if you need to update this section of your collection.

Pochettes are a touch lightweight luxury

The pochette is there for you when you need something a little lower profile. They’re great for a night out or for when you don’t have to carry much for the day. If you’re looking for easy light luxury, pochettes are as practical as you can get. Out of all the luxury pochettes, Louis Vuitton’s Pochette Accessoires is quite possibly the most popular one out there. It’s a simple yet stunning pochette that adds a touch of luxury to your look with ease. There’s a reason it’s our most popular pochette at the moment. You can find a variety of second hand Louis Vuitton pochettes and pouches that embody the same kind of luxury and quality that the Pochette Accessoires is known for. On a side note, pochettes are some of our favourite bags to accessorise and customise with the use of straps. Browse through our collection of brand-new SALT straps to add a little extra flair to your look. You’ll fall in love with the intricate handwoven designs that SALT is known for.

A good luxury collection deserves variety, we hope you agree. When you’re moving forward with the completion of your collection, we hope you take some of our advice into account. That being said, what’s most important when completing your own luxury bag collection is how you feel about your bags and the use you get from them. We can give you the practical argument for owning different types of designer bags, but if you’re someone who never carries a lot of personal items during the day or who never goes to fancy soirées, then your collection should reflect that!
