Best Everyday Designer Bags to Invest in 2024

Designer bags are an essential part of any woman's lifestyle. Designer leather bags from Eric Javits are the hallmark of luxury, comfort, but most importantly function.

For example, the Mini Duffel has stylish short handles and a detachable cross strap that makes this bag a great option. If you are looking for a designer leather bag, let's take a look at some of the options available through Eric Javits.  

What Characteristics Does a Designer Bag Have?

Luxury handbags are one of many women's most valued belongings. According to some, they may be one of the most prevalent gifts on a woman's wishlist.

Therefore, you must exercise caution when deciding where to get your first handbag. Here are some features to anticipate in your first luxury handbag. 

1. Luxury

There's a reason why luxury handbags are referred to as luxurious. One of the finest aspects of purchasing a luxury handbag is the sensation of exclusivity and sophistication.

The value you will get for your premium handbag can`t be matched by an ordinary purse. 

2. Well-Made and Composed of Superior Materials

Craftsmanship is an essential characteristic of luxury handbags. Leather or canvas bags are crafted from the highest quality materials, from the tiniest raw materials to the bag itself.

Meticulousness is evident even in the slightest elements, like the stitching. One of the hallmarks of Eric Javits handbags are features. One of our most popular features is the strap.

Some crossstraps are detachable and many are adjustable to maximize crossbody use. 

3. Dependable 

Due to their superior craftsmanship, you can anticipate these bags to last you a very long time, if not a lifetime. You are confident that your suitcase will not break unexpectedly. No need to worry about bag pieces slipping off. 

The Livia is a great example of how Eric Javits handbags are dependable.

This bag features protective feet and is water repellent. Additionally, its pockets will hold everything you need, from travel documents to your cell phone and sunglasses. 

4. Classic

Perhaps the most desired characteristic of a luxury handbag is its ability to stand the test of time. A classic bag is a black leather tote bag.

This premium handbag never goes out of style, so you cannot go wrong by getting it. Additionally, it is handy and stylish. It is the ideal combination of practicality and aesthetic appeal. 

A leather bag is a timeless accessory that will never go out of style. Although they are not as hefty as tote bags, they are practical, roomy, and trendy.

A great example of timelessness from Eric Javits is the I Got U bag, named from Sonny and Cher's greatest hit. This bag is made from Italian vegetable-tanned leather, which softens over time. 

5. Original and Unique 

Each designer handbag from Eric Javits has a unique story that inspires its design.

From the I Got U bag to the Juju leather straw bag you will find a design that has its inspiration in a unique individual or a narrative.  

6. An Investment

Bags from Eric Javits are an investment. In addition to an important investment you are making in yourself, you are also investing in function.

Some bags have storage space that expands based upon what you put in it. Other bags are compact and durable to match your busy life on the go. 

What to Look For In Everyday Designer Leather Bags?

When choosing a handbag for everyday use, you should consider its

1. Durability
2. Functionality
3. Weight
4. Support
5. Color

Make sure the bag is well-made to see how long it will last. High-quality designer leather bags last a long time. 

Then, it's about how well it fits your wardrobe and lifestyle. A sequined bag is a beautiful thing to have in your closet for a special event, but is it something you can wear every day?

You should be able to wear it in any season or setting because you know it will work. Weight and support are often linked since a bag that is too big or heavy can weigh you down. 

Neutral colors are your closet's companion regarding variety because they don't conflict and look smooth and refined during the day.

They also lend a stylish focus on after-hours events.

The best everyday designer bags can be used for a midnight date or a family dinner on a Friday night. 

Here are a few classic styles that easily transition from day to night. 


The crossbody bag has a long strap to carry it over your shoulder or across your body. This is convenient, especially if your bag keeps slipping off your shoulder or you are walking in a crowd. The versatility of this style keeps it a favorite.

Eric Javits' mini version of the crossbody is a practical approach when you want to keep it light. The Treat Shopper is compact, with easy access to the essentials.

The quilted pattern and added chain link handle make this a classic and functional choice of designer leather bags. It's practical for the day and looks elegant at night.

Shoulder Bag 

The shoulder bag is a popular style for more than one reason. It is worn easily over the shoulder. It's casual and classic simultaneously, and like any timeless piece, it doesn't just work day or night.

Instead, it works for all of life's chapters. So find a shoulder bag with compartments that make it easy to keep things in order. Then, tuck it into the bend of your arm so you can go out on the town hands-free. 

The Querida Bag has a chic design with all the right details to show its elegance. This is the perfect bag to take you from day to night.

With this soft, high-quality crocodile embossed leather bag, you can travel and see the sights during the day and keep your essentials close by for trips at night. The leather strap with the Querida bag can be worn as a shoulder or crossbody and has a removable strap as a clutch bag. 

Tote Bag 

Because the tote bag is both practical and stylish, it's no surprise that it's a must-have for office wear. You can carry everything in a tote and put any last-minute essentials in the roomy middle section.

Still, it often has zippered pockets and smaller compartments for pens and stationery to help keep things in order. It makes sense that this bag is excellent for everyday use, but you might be surprised to learn that it's also light and stylish enough for a night out. 

This is especially true if you choose our Squishee Tote II tote, our take on the carefree carryall. Its built-in organization makes it easy to get through the day with everything you need at your fingertips.

This mid-size designer leather tote for women is made of suede, leather, and haircalf patches that show off fall's rich colors and textures. 

Convertible Purse/Backpack 

This convenient dual-purpose bag is a great way to have a stylish purse and go hands-free by just moving the straps into a backpack.

Designer leather backpacks are so practical and alluring that they function perfectly as a day-to-night bag.  

Unbelievably luxe, the Squishee Bel Air gracefully transitions from the office to everyday activities to drinks after work.

It's constructed using a patented, manufactured, unique material with partially recycled fibers resembling genuine raffia straw, a leather flap closure, and an outside pocket. This medium-sized designer leather backpack has a well-structured design suitable for your everyday routine. 

Hobo Bag

A hobo bag is an accessory that never goes out of style. It is a well-known handbag that gets a lot of use because it is so practical—typically worn over the shoulder, so you are hands-free.

Everyone should have a big bag for everyday walks or a night out with friends. You don't have to worry about it going out of style– it's a classic. But carrying a bag like this sends a message of mystery and style at the same time. Also, the strap makes it very easy to put on.

You'll love the Baa Hobo Bag if you are looking for a mid-size hobo with an elevated design. It's made of faux lamb fur with calf leather trim and strap is roomy and soft.

Bucket Bag 

The bucket bag gives your day-to-night handbag a unique, slouchy look that makes you stand out from the crowd. Like the tote, the bucket bag combines practicality and space with stylish details.

It can be worn on the shoulder, as a satchel, as a tote, or even as a backpack so that you can switch things up depending on the situation. 

The Dome Zip bag can be worn as a crossbody or shoulder bag. This designer leather purse has just the right mix of texture and structure to add beauty and function to your look. 

Things to Consider 

Here are a few other things to think about to make sure your designer leather bag is as functional as you will it to be for everyday use.


Comfort is key with a good bag, especially one you're planning on wearing all day and all night. When you're going out for an elegant evening, it can be tempting to choose style over function, but with the right everyday bag, you won't have to choose between the two.

Check how a bag sits on your shoulder or across your torso to see if it's comfortable. Make sure the shoulder strap helps spread the bag's weight evenly. 


The next most important factor is how practical a bag is because you want it to carry everything you need with ease. So choose a bag with lots of pockets and built-in organization, so you don't have to dig through it to find that pesky pen.

The size of a bag also affects how useful it is for long days that go late into the night, when you may need to carry more essentials than usual. 


Try using neutral colors. A black, beige, caramel, or navy bag with a classic style and a sleek, sophisticated look will go with any outfit.

A neutral color lets you wear an elegant all-black outfit from head to toe or add a pop of color to your outfit while keeping your accessories the same color. 


The perfect bag for going from day to night has enough space and size without too many extras that can make it heavy. So you should find a bag with a lot of space that isn't hard to carry. 


Look for bags with different straps. A bag with straps that can be taken off and strap clasps lets you change your style, which is excellent for when the day turns into night. Make sure it's adaptable.

Choose a bag that is as versatile as you are to make the transition from day to night easier. So, imagine a possible bag in different situations and ask yourself, "Can I use this bag wherever I need to go?

How to Clean Your Designer Purse the Right Way? 

Designer purses are known for their high quality, high-end materials and, of course, their well-known brand names. Designer handbags are an investment, and the best way to keep yours in good shape is to clean them often.

Over time, the environment's dirt, dust, and grime can get on the outside and inside of your purse. The oils on your skin can also break down the materials, and things can spill on or into it.

If you know how to clean your purse correctly, you can keep your designer bag looking as good as new.

Cleaning your luxury handbag wrong will permanently harm it, so proceed with caution. Here's an essential guide to cleaning your luxury handbag's inside, outside, and hardware. 

Interior Designer Purse Cleaning

  • Empty your purse of all your possessions. 
  • Shake the bag upside down to get rid of any loose material. 
  • Turn the liner inside out and remove debris or dust using a lint roller. 
  • Vacuum the liner with the brush attachment to remove any dirt you may have missed.

Exterior Designer Purse Cleaning

Over time, your bag will collect dirt and grime. The material it is made of will depend on how you clean it. 


Use care when cleaning your designer leather bags. 

Remove dirt and residue by wiping the exterior with fragrance-free, alcohol-free wipes, like leather or baby wipes, so that you won't dry the material.

You can also spray a leather cleaner on a microfiber cloth and clean it. Apply a leather conditioner after it is clean. 


Lint rollers are often used to clean canvas, tweed, jersey, and satin. Gently remove any dirt, dust, or debris that has been adhered to the cloth using tweezers.

If you see imperfections needing special treatment, spritz a baby wipe with OxiClean and use it to remove the stain.

Fur and Suede

Use a specialized brush to remove dirt, dust, and debris from the outside of fur or suede handbags. If there are any stains, remove them carefully with a brush. For fur-lined bags, brush the fur in the same direction as the hair.

For suede, brush the suede in one direction using a soft brush. After cleaning the suede, use a suede conditioner to revive the material. 


Using a baby wipe, polish the hardware before drying it with a soft towel. Sometimes, your bag's hardware might stain the surrounding fabric.

Fortunately, this may be eliminated by lightly polishing it with an eraser.

Squishee Material 

To clean Squishee material, you can use a soft brush or cloth to get rid of dirt on the surface. You can get rid of dirt with a clean, damp washcloth that has been thoroughly wrung out.

Don't use too much water because that can change the hat's shape. You don't need to dry clean unless they are made of soft materials and are cut and sewn.
