Are you thinking of buy a Gucci handbag and thinking of what are the best bags from Gucci that are timeless and can be worn year after year. In this post I am sharing the best of them so, your shopping gets easier.
Designer handbags are not cheap, and its easy to get swayed by the latest trends and buy something that you are stuck with. This has always been my biggest concern. Now unlike big designer handbag brands like Chanel, Louis Vuitton or Hermes Gucci handbags don’t appreciate when you are reselling. So its all the more important that you buy something that you will love and use for a long time.
If you are looking for a designer bag and wondering what is the best way to decide that the bag works for you, I have a blog post where I am sharing a checklist that will help you pick your perfect luxury handbag.
About The Brand
Gucci was founded in 1921, more than a 100 years ago. The brand not only sells handbag, but also has ready to wear, home decor and more.
Gucci’s aesthetic is prints and patterns bringing the classic Italian style to its customers.
The classic Gucci GG pattern being one of the iconic and timeless patterns. But Gucci has slowly shifted it brands to more current and modern styles with the Gucci Marmont and Gucci
Classic and Timeless Gucci Bags
Gucci Horsebit 1955 shoulder bag
The Gucci Horsebit 1955 shoulder bag is the latest design but its such a timeless design, that I am totally confident that this bag will be in the collection for years.
This shoulder bag has the classic Gucci Horsebit hardware that you are used to seeing on shoes. But it looks fantastic on this handbag. If its your first bag, it should be black and this design is classic and stylish. And big enough to be an everyday bag.
Its important that you get the most wear out of your first bag.

Ophidia GG small top handle bag
The Ophidia GG small top handle bag is the perfect lady like handbag which looks vintage and still timeless. It comes in the classic GG pattern canvas with leather trims and handle.
The brown leather and the vintage gold hardware compliment each other perfectly adding that retro touch to the bag. And the Gucci stripes also bring the brand’s signature.
I love that this bag is versatile with top Hande and a shoulder strap. That always adds more wear out of the bag.
This handbag also has multiple compartments inside which makes is roomy and great for everyday wear. The bag also comes in the GG canvas prints and leather shades, but this one looks the best. It’s neutral and will go with everything.

Dionysus leather mini bag
I just picked up the Dionysus leather mini bag and could not be happier for my decision. While this bag also comes in the bigger version, I bought this bag for a couple of reasons.
I needed a versatile black going out bag. And I was lookin at the Dionysus small shoulder bag which is a bigger size. But this bag became an instant favorite because of the versatility of the strap. This bag can be worn as a shoulder bag and a crossbody bag. Isn’t that amazing.
It still holds my iPhone 14 Pro max and small wallet, keys and more. So I was just sold on this size. The grained leather looks luxurious and is durable as well.
Grained leather is always a better choice if you want your luxury bags to last longer.
But the statement was the serpentine jewel crusted hardware. Its a classic Gucci design that has been there for years and will look amazing and luxe for years to come.

Gucci Blondie small shoulder bag
The Gucci Blondie small shoulder bag is a great starter bag in a great price point as well. If you are trying to get a feel for Gucci handbags. Or this is your first designer bag, then you should definitely go for this one.
The bag is perfect for everyday wear with all over leather looking including the newly revisited logos. These styles of bags are usually called Camera bags because of their boxy design.
The handle of the handbags are long and adjustable, so you can wear it as a crossbody and as a shoulder bag.
The handbag comes in other fun shades including black, but in the white leather this bag looks more modern and elevated.

Gucci Horsebit 1955 small shoulder bag
If you are looking for a Gucci party bag, then Gucci Horsebit 1955 small shoulder bag is another great option. The bag is small enough for a chic evening look. And it is still roomy for all your stuff.
The bag comes with a detachable leather top handle and a longer chain handle. This makes the bag versatile and you can swap the straps for different looks as well.
This way you can use the bag as a clutch or a shoulder bag. Buying a multipurpose evening bag helps you save some big dollars on these handbags.
The handbag is made out of grained leather which is durable and stylish. I feel like this bag competes with my Valentino Logo bag which I bought as an evening bag.

Gucci Ophidia medium tote
The Gucci Ophidia medium tote is subtle and a great quality design tote bag that you can carry to work or to travel. The signature Gucci stripes give this basic leather bag a designer touch which is easily spotted. But the design is minimal, so you can carry it to work.
The exposed handle stitching and gold hardware elevates this bag even more and stands out compared to a lot of other designer tote bags out there.
The bag also has a zipped compartment and a side slip compartment making it functional and versatile. If you are wondering how to organize a tote bag, checkout the post where I am sharing a few ways to keep your tote bag organized.
Overall this bag looks classic, durable and a perfect size for work bag.

Gucci Dionysus leather shoulder bag
The Gucci Dionysus leather shoulder bag is the bigger version of the small Dionysus bag, but it has a very different design. This is the only bag that comes with the gold with rhinestone matching the leather serpentine hardware. And its a classic piece to own from the brand.
The bag is of course bigger in size, so it has a lot of room and is great for day time usage as well.
The strap for this bag is made to be a top handle or a shoulder bag, so you cannot use this bag as a crossbody bag. That is why this is popular among rich ladies as a lady like bag.
There is a reason why the chain strap for these bags are not made super long, because they are indeed made out of metal and are really heavy. So, they are carefully designed to balance the handbag.
