Classics are classics for good reason: They ooze class that transcend time and space, thus giving anyone that much coveted vibe of quiet elegance. That's right, quiet elegance, because classics do not scream for attention but rather, sashay down the runway of real life with understated panache—effortless chic at its finest. This is one thing four of today's most beautiful faces and most loved stars have mastered: Don't you just love Kathryn Bernardo, Liza Soberano, Julia Barretto, and Janella Salvador because of how graceful and sophisticated they are?
These 'it' girls (also collectively known as the ASAP 'It Girls') have distinct personal styles, albeit all leaning towards easy dressing. We noticed though that there's something they share: A love for classic bags! While they've got access to countless styles, they still go back to the timelessly chic designs. Here are some tips for you when it comes to picking out a classic bag to match your personality:
You'll never go wrong with black. Yes, because it goes with anything, plus it's low-maintenance and has a mysterious and glam vibe, no matter the bag shape. A medium-sized handbag like Liza's is ideal for school or work and the boxy structure makes any look polished in an instant.
But color is a wonderful thing, too. The Teen Queen's two-toned geometric tote is an impeccable update on a classic style. It's roomy enough for your essentials and more, and as with anything, a bright pop of color always makes a statement.
Basic shapes are great for a day of exploring. Compared to boxy pieces, bags in your usual basic, no nonsense shape are your best bets when you're out traveling or exploring a museum or amusement park (Janella opted for one when she traveled to Singapore) because they weigh less and are easier to carry. No need to fret because just by picking out a bag with interesting details like Janella's with zippers and hardware, you won't need to sacrifice style.
Find your 'it' satchel, clutch, or small sling bag. It just does not look good carrying a normal-sized bag to events, and satchels and clutches will save you from this faux pas. These mini bags can also be worn on normal days, of course, and when paired with casual outfits, you'll get that cool mix of elegance and edge.
Happy bag hunting!
