The past few fashion years have brought us so much variety in handbags; furry monsters and cartoonish “fast food cartons” have shared the runways with paired-down leather bags in muted colors, and have made way for everything in-between.

This upcoming season, if you're looking for something that is going to have a bit more longevity than your bags of seasons past, look no further to the pre-fall 2016 collections! There are some exquisitely simple black bags available that will easily see you through the next several decades!

For those who prefer a bit more structure in your day, this Jason Wu shoulder bag fits the bill.
