Barbie girl in a Barbie world, right? Life in the Dreamhouse may be chaotic on the daily, but armed with the right arm candy, you'll conquer all 200 of your chosen career paths with nonchalant ease. Trust us. Here, we've listed down five pretty, forever-classic candidates you're gonna want to grab in every shade of pink available—be it searing fuchsia, soft blush, or bubblegum pop.
1. Dior 30 Montaigne
Named famously as a loving tribute to the brand’s iconic and emblematic flagship address in Paris, the Dior 30 Montaigne's explosive entry into the style scene was memorably heralded by literally hundreds of the 'gram's best dressed posting simulteanously-uploaded OOTD snaps carrying it on the crooks of their bling-decked arms. Overwhelming? Yes, and we thrived in the overload, to be honest. Though monogram mania may fade in the coming years as it did in the naughty noughties, we definitely see Jinkee Pacquiao's subtler, plain leather iteration aging gracefully. A tip when making that big purchase: Structure matters!
2. Gucci Padlock
Owing to its demure, elegant, structured shape, the Gucci Padlock is a strong contender for fortitude in the face of constant change (and fashion's famously fickle heart). Stylish, always jetsettin' gals Lovi Poe and Nicole Andersson own it in two different sizes, so call the pair proof of its universal appeal! Its sliding, brilliant gold chain allows you to wear it crossbody or perched prettily on your shoulder, and, as if to balance out its inherent timelessness, it's yours to shop in a dizzying slew of ultra fun prints set against those iconic interlocking Gs. Choose from a spray of shimmering bees, cheeky red cartoon strawberries, blooms and Bengal tigers.
3. Chanel Coco Handle
You know how, for some unexplained, miraculous reason, Chanel's 2.55 is for literally everyone? Ask every chick from the prim, ladylike Heart Evangelista to headbangin' heavy metal queen Arci Muñoz—they all own it. It's the investment piece of dreams, arguably the only designer bag to really put your money on should you be forced (god forbid!) to choose just one. Whether you agree or not, you've gotta admit that those are some intimidatingly massive shoes to fill. That said, we're placing our confident bets on the Coco Handle, born in Fall-Winter 2015, as a little sister worthy of earning the same ageless fame.
4. Louis Vuitton Twist
Thanks to exactly 165 long years of manufacturing topnotch travel trunks for the past century and a half's rich and famous, Louis Vuitton's legacy is near unparalleled. No one invents classics like 'em, and the Twist is set to become one of the house's most enduring designs. Named for the signature logo turnlock closure that, well, twists to open, it was among the styles introduced by Nicolas Ghesquiere straight after his appointment as creative director in 2014. It draws on the maison's storied history of luxury luggage yet manages to look ultra-current, a top quality that's won it hearts across the globe.
4. Balenciaga Everyday Camera Bag
Imagine this. Eons from now, when you're bent and gray, you'll reminisce about the Balenciaga Everyday Camera Bag you took to wild late nights out and impromptu jaunts abroad and reverently whisper: One point for the cool kids! A no frills camera bag is totally an underrated wardrobe need, we think! Balenciaga's high-end streetwear flavor has undoubtedly become covetable beyond belief lately, and a quick, easy route to bite in arrived via this stark, logo-emblazoned sling that's basic in the best, most long-lived way.
5. Saint Laurent Kate
If you're going to Invest with a capital 'I' on a single evening bag, the Saint Laurent Kate best be it. Add your preferred gold tassel into the mix for good measure, of course! That unmissable monogram gracing an otherwise nondescript, wallet style interior has remained the pinnacle of chicness for years—this here's a piece that we can easily guarantee is going to age a la fine wine. Contrary to popular belief, the current cool set is perfectly capable of taking it from gala glam to off-duty weekend in a flash; it'd be a terrible shame to confine it to nightlife cavorting, we think. Sultry miss Kate's slim, slinky metal chain and leather body, available in a rainbow myriad of colors and finishes, is versatile to a fault. Our advice? Cop yours in the slightly roomier medium size for quick, seamless desk-to-drinks transitioning.
