Trends come and go, which is why I’ve been making an effort to stock my closet with foolproof wardrobe staples that never go out of style—especially when it comes to handbags. Don’t get me wrong. I love a mini bag just as much as the next person, but I’m much more inclined to invest my hard-earned dollars in a more low-key style that I know I’ll be able to wear for years to come—especially one that can carry all of my stuff with ease. Case in point? The camera bag. Usually square or rectangular in shape, these nifty bags were originally designed to house actual cameras, so they can hold quite a bit more than meets the eye. Plus, they usually come equipped with all the pockets and compartments one could dream of, making organization a breeze. Any bag that won’t leave me fishing for my lipstick or pen is a winner in my book. Today’s designer options come in a variety of colors, prints, and materials, making them an easy accessory for elevating any look. Ahead, I’ve rounded up the 25 best designer camera bags I currently have my eye on. Consider any of these an investment that’s well worth it.
