While you want a handbag that strives for style - as Longchamp’s handbags always do - you also need one that’s practical. Again, this is what Longchamp does best. Style and practicality can be a hard combination to find, but this distinctive brand from Paris provides high fashion and high utility with its various lines of well-constructed handbags.

These bags, available in colors like gunmetal, lilac, vermillion and cognac, contrast against high-quality, soft leather and durable hardware, including key fobs, Longchamp logo zippers and useful snaps. Bags such as the Longchamp Medium Shoulder Tote from the Le Pliage line - the most popular of Longchamp’s offerings - spill over to the bags that have shorter straps for you to hold in your hand. The Longchamp Hobo Bags, for example, similarly feature cowhide leather trimmings in perfect places, like the exterior cell phone pocket that is noticeable for its leather button flap and also for its stylish appeal.

With their usefulness and sense of style, Longchamp handbags will become a welcome part of your wardrobe and a necessity when you are out and about.
