Best Convertible Bags For Day to Date Night


Fashion / Wednesday, January 24th, 2018

I’m not one to mandate the celebration of things on their assigned date. But with Valentine’s Day falling mid-week this year, I know a lot of us will be going from day to date night without much time to change. And one of the things I despise the most is having to change handbags. I always end up accidentally leaving an essential in my office or day bag. Remembering to bring a small clutch to transition to for date night is also a challenge and a huge tote just doesn’t say “low maintenance” either (something I also try to be). Enter convertible bags!

Ok, this is not a new concept. I get it, but I just never found a convertible bag that looked nice enough for day or office but then also transitioned to date night or evening. Most convertible bags I’ve seen are some kind of hybrid backpack thing or the designer just added a longer removable strap. Um, hello? The body of the bag is still huge!

My problems were solved with this mini convertible tote from Henri Bendel. I’ve shown the convertible design to a few of my friends and it’s as if I’m performing a little magic trick each time. I have to admit, I get a little thrill from it, too.

By day the convertible bag functions as a small structured tote, perfect for the office. By night, the front pouch zips off into a chain strap shoulder bag or clutch. Voilà!

I’ve linked several of my favorite convertible bags (including the one I’m pictured with) at a variety of price points. Some have zip off pouches while others fold down from a tote to a clutch. Which one is your favorite?
