Hermes Birkin

This bag is extremely popular and it's safe to say that it will never go out of style. Named after the famous French actress, Jane Birkin. It comes in different sizes and colors. It also comes in regular and exotic leather. Sorry for the animal lovers! I'm sure you can find the right one for you. There is only one catch, this bag is very expensive. I believe the cheapest one starts at $8000.

Hermes Kelly

Another classic handbag by the legendary fashion house Hermes. This is named after the American actress turned princess, Grace Kelly. This bag was used to hide her pregnancy. Like the Birkin, it is very expensive and comes with lots of options (colors, sizes, and leather). Unlike the Birkin, the Kelly is more ladylike and refined. This handbag will surely never go out of style.

Louis Vuitton Speedy

This bag has been around for a long time just like the two mentioned above. The Speedy is iconic because of Audrey Hepburn. It is inspired from their luggage, the Keepall. Ever since its introduction, it has been a part of the Louis Vuitton fashion house. Few years ago, LV made this bag even more user friendly by adding a shoulder strap. Furthermore, you have a ton of options for this style. Louis Vuitton offers it in the classic monogram, ebene, azur, and different types of leather. Depending on your body size, you can either pick a smaller or larger speedy to fit your frame. The starting price is a little bit more friendly compared to the Hermes bags; the cheapest one is about $1000.

Louis Vuitton Alma

Although not super popular at the moment. This handbag is a classic. It's been around since the 1930s. The Alma's shape is classic and ladylike. It is one of those bags that stands up to the test of time. If you buy it in a leather finish, it's super understated as well. Only true handbag lovers will be able to recognize its iconic shape. For those that love small bags, Louis Vuttion has an Alma BB that's super cute! Its price is a little bit higher than the Speedy.

Louis Vuitton Neverfull

The Neverfull hasn't been around that long, but its popularity is super high. Considered an entry level bag to the Louis Vuitton fashion house, it is very practical as well. Like its name, it will carry tons of stuff for you. When it was first introduced in 2007, its price point was super friendly. However, over the years, the price is no longer easily assessible for most. On the brighter side, it's still one of the most affordable handbags from Louis Vuitton. Nowadays, the starting price is around $1300.

Chanel 2.55 Bag

This bag needs no introduction. If you are just a little bit into fashion, you know what it looks like. The quilted leather bag by Chanel is a true classic born in 1955, hense its name. Nowadays, due to the crazy price hike by Chanel, it's almost not possible to buy this bag new. Even the smallest starts at $5000. But don't worry, the second hand market will save you a ton of money. Just shop at a reputable second hand seller to get an authentic Chanel 2.55.

Dior Lady Dior

This bag is a symbol of timeless elegance. Adorned by the late princess Diana, this handbag is very ladylike. You are able to carry it with your hand and use it as a crossbody bag, it very versatile for the modern woman. With a wide variety of colors, you can pick a Lady Dior for any season and occasion. The lady Dior is not cheap though, even the smallest one will set you back at least $3500.
