In this economy it can be hard to justify splurging on a bag that won’t get maximum mileage, which is why reversible purses make so much sense. You get two bags for the price of one! And with so many options, it may be a long time before you’re tempted to plunk down your credit card for the single it bag of the moment.
Although it's the priciest of the bunch, Orla Kieley’s Cream and Brown Reversible Leather Tote ($635) is made of genuine leather (on both sides) and will stay in style season to season.
The Lauren Merkin Cate Metallic Clutch ($206.50, was $295) changes from a gunmetal metallic to a more casual midnight black. So you get two stunning Lauren Merkins in one fell swoop.
For a fun day bag that doesn't cost a fortune, opt for this NYC by Perlina Tote ($42). Wear the leopard print on the outside to add edge to your ensemble or turn it in for a more conservative look.
