There’s nothing like a date night to bring out the big-name luxury bags from your style arsenal. Should you carry with you an iconic Chanel Boy bag that conveys your personal style of timeless elegance? Or perhaps finish off your date night look with a red Stella McCartney Falabella faux shaggy bucket bag that speaks of your bohemian spirit? Do you need a large tote to carry all the “just in case” essentials? Or should you opt for the tried-and-true evening clutch bags to carry only the basics? Meeting someone for date night—first dates, especially—is nerve-wracking. Ask any single lady and she’ll tell you it’s hard enough to get out of your comfort zone, but it’s even harder to make a first impression. Every single fashion choice you make—luxury handbags, included—could tell your date a lot about you, your lifestyle, your personality and your style philosophy. So which date night luxury bag should you carry with you then? We’ve built a fashion edit for you around these 5 “it” luxury bags for date night to help you make that “she’s the one” impression.
Your Personality: Polished PreppyYour “It” Bag
Chanel Boy Bag Drop a not-so-subtle hint about your love of timeless elegance with a Chanel Boy bag. Choose a small-sized bag, if you can, so you don’t get tempted to bring too much of the non-essentials to a date night. Let your Chanel Boy bag be the focal point by keeping everything else basic, like wearing it with a clean white top and a pair of black Chanel bow platform pumps. But don’t scare your date away by looking too stiff and unapproachable. Instead, when choosing a Chanel handbag, pick a fun color, like plum in this crystal-embossed Chanel Boy bag, so your date knows you are elegant but unafraid to have a little bit of fun.

Gucci Horsebit Clutch With this Gucci clutch adorned with antique gold-tone studs, chains and horsebits, there’s no mistaking how much of a rebel you are. You like to live life to the fullest and it shows in your fashion choices, which is why you always add a little touch of edginess to your choice of handbags. For a “happy hour” date, pair it with an A-line tweed skirt and black gold-trimmed Yves Saint Laurent pumpsso your rocker personality can shine.
