This isn’t a chain bag list without mentioning the iconic Chanel 2.55, which is ingrained in everyone’s fashion memory. Created in 1955 by Gabrielle Chanel herself, it was the first bag to ever have a shoulder strap, changing the game for women everywhere who’ve been longing for a hands-free experience. Featuring the brand’s signature quilted leather, the bag is perfect for those who love old-world glamour. Aside from classic colorways like black and white, the design comes in other more contemporary variants like tweed and colorful metallic finishes.

Saint Laurent has a good selection of chain bags, but if you’re looking for one that can transition you from day to night, consider this design aptly called Sunset. It’s characterized by a boxy shape and top handle that make it look very office-ready. The handle is a hybrid of leather and chain to strike a balance between functional and festive. A great choice for those who don’t like switching out purses come nighttime.

3. Louis Vuitton Felicie Pochette

Sure, Louis Vuitton is famous for its handy, monogrammed handbags but their smaller designs are pretty popular, too. One perfect example is the Felicie Pochette, which is great for those who want a pared down version of LV’s classic Pochette Accessoires (i.e., if you just want a pochette with a chain and no jacquard strap). Featuring an envelope flap with magnetic closure and a dainty, removable gold chain, it’s the perfect little purse for everyday jaunts.

4. Gucci Dionysus Small Shoulder Bag

Gucci has a lot of chain bags like the cutesy Marmont and the boxy Padlock, but if you’re looking for something with a touch of whimsy and edge, we suggest getting the Dionysus. The design features a tiger head closure that has become a recognizable Gucci element. What’s so lovely about this piece is the aged metal hardware that’s perfect for those who find gold too flashy, and it’s also easy to pair with any outfit. What’s more is that you can adjust the crossbody strap to a shoulder one.

5. Chloe Drew Mini Shoulder Bag

Sure, ‘chain bags’ typically remind one of chunky gold chains and quilted leather, but there are some designs that are more discreet—great for those who have a minimalist aesthetic. Case in point, Chloe’s iconic Drew shoulder bag features a rounded body, sleek gold lock, and a thin chain strap that won’t look overwhelming when worn with a casual outfit. A solid addition to your collection of everyday crossbody bags!

6. Fendi Baguette Chain

In case you didn’t know, Fendi has a slew of designs for their iconic baguette but with chain straps! Great for those who yearn for a baguette of their own but don’t want a short shoulder strap. This design is fabulous because of its white body and black leather trims, a classic combo that’ll go with virtually any outfit—the perfect grab-and-go purse, if you will! We also love that it comes it with a top handle in case you want to clasp it by hand.

Crafted with the brand’s iconic nylon material and brandished with the house’s enamel triangle logo, this small purse comes with a detachable pouch if you want to double up on space during the day. You can also remove the chain strap and transform it into a clutch come nighttime.
