The Best Everyday Bags

Every woman has a unique sense of style that distinguishes her from others. That means there’s no magical “one style fits all” bag that is perfect for all women. At Aimee Kestenberg, we know you, because we are you. We work hard to create bags for women that suit every lifestyle, every noteworthy occasion, and every routine stop at the grocery store.

Just because you lead a busy life doesn’t mean you can’t still feel empowered through stylish and practical fashion. Just because you’re an on-the-go, does-it-all woman doesn’t mean you can’t still appreciate the finer things in life while letting your unique style shine.

With so many perfect bags available in so many silhouettes, sizes, colors, and materials, we often get asked questions like, “What is the best everyday bag?” and “What color bag goes with everything?” These questions aren’t easy for us to answer because they depend so much on your own personal style, needs, and fashion aesthetic.

We can offer just a little bit of guidance, though, even if it is a bit biased. The best everyday bag? Well, it’s an Aimee bag, of course. When you purchase a piece from us, you know you’re getting the best possible bag for your own personal needs.

What Color Bag Goes with Everything? 

When it comes to knowing what color bag goes with everything, this is a little bit easier to answer. First, look into your closet. If you have tons of bright clothes, you might want some bright bags to match. If your closet is mostly blacks and whites, you may want to stick to muted tones. Our general advice? Warm, rich neutrals tend to go with most colors, ensembles, and occasions. You can’t go wrong with a rich chestnut, a solid black, or a cool off-white, especially for your first piece. You can always branch out from there.

Which Bag is Best for Your Every Day? 

With your personality and color preferences in mind, here are just a few of our best everyday bags that are ready to support you (and keep you looking great) for the long haul.

Everyday Belt Bags: For the Minimalist 

You may have noticed that belt bags are having a serious moment right now. From celebrities to teenagers, to that cool mom down the street, they seem to be appearing in every ensemble. It’s not hard to see why the everyday belt bag is shining at the moment, either.

They’re super compact, making sure you stay organized and only bring along what you need. Their adjustable strap makes it easy to wear a belt bag or bum bag in two different ways – either around the waist or across the chest. Both offer easy, almost immediate access to your belongings the second you need them.

At Amy Kestenberg, we offer our belt bags in a variety of colors, sizes, styles, and tones, making it easy to find one that amplifies exactly who you are. Wear one of our traditionally shaped bum bags in a rich, dark leather color with trousers, loafers, and a short-sleeved button-down to look low-key business casual. Or choose a brighter pattern like purple shimmer or colorful snakeskin and pair it with bike shorts and a cozy sweater to get the party going on your favorite weekend night.

Everyday Crossbody Bags: For the Sweet and Sophisticated 

Nothing says elegantly classic like a well-constructed everyday Crossbody Bag. At Aimee Kestenberg, our crossbody bags are chic while they remain modern, interesting, and one-of-a-kind. The varied silhouettes of crossbody bags offer something for women looking for all different amounts of storage.

But it’s the vast variations in style, size, and attention to detail that really sets these bags into a league of their own. These perfect everyday bags feature thoughtful design details like quilted leather, luxurious tassels, intricate embossed and braided patterns, and unique and interesting textures. Plus, they’re available in a rainbow of colors, designed to match or elevate any daily outfit.

Wear our Mini Let’s Ride Crossbody in Hot Pink to channel your inner Barbiecore simply by pairing it with cutoff shorts and a white tank top. Or keep it a little more classic by partnering our Woven All For Love Convertible Bag in Cumin with a chic work ensemble or casual jeans and sweater daily go-to outfit. You’ll be looking put together, in charge, and ready to crush it in any option.

Everyday Tote Bags: For the Free-Spirited 

There may be no other bag that allows you to express yourself in the same way as an everyday tote bag. They’re oversized, they’re created to handle every task, and they can switch from day to night, casual to formal, and back again without breaking a nail. Sound like anyone you know?

At Aimee Kestenberg, our totes range from the understated and traditional, like our various oversized, sleek leather bags, to the totally fun and playful patterned options, like our American Flag, snakeskin, and floral-themed bags. These everyday tote bags can blend in as supporting elements to your outfit, or they can stand out as total showstoppers. It’s all about how you style them.

For example, our Bleecker Tote in rich True Plum Vintage is a classically elegant piece that is a perfect everyday piece to pair with dark wash jeans, warm, cozy sweaters, suede booties, and a playful hat or scarf. This creates a casually pulled-together look that makes you look both organized and approachable.

For something a little more “out there,” our Washington Tote in Chestnut Croco, featuring an American flag designed backed by luxurious, lightly colored letters is the perfect piece to keep you looking modern while paying homage to decades past. In the summer, pair this with cutoff denim jeans and a white V-neck t-shirt for an elevated Bohemian look. In the cooler months, change out the shorts for some jeans, add a crocheted cardigan and maybe a beanie, and retain the cool retro-modern look.

Everyday Shoulder Bags: For the Undeniably Classic 

When it comes to bags, there is arguably one style that never goes out of fashion. That feels timeless and chic wherever it may appear. That is elegantly suited to every daily errand and every night time interaction.

The shoulder bag has been a prevailing trend for decades, and it’s not hard to see why. From its classic shape to its convenient placement to its endless variations in color, style, and silhouette, the shoulder bag can’t be beat when it comes to tried and true timeless elegance.

At Aimee Kestenberg, we offer a variety of shoulder bags, ranging from absolutely traditional to fun, modern, and out-of-the-box. Truly, we have a shoulder bag style for every bag lover.
