7 Cute Going Out Bags That Complete Any Weekend Outfit

Whether you spend your weekends hitting up art galleries, shopping, or eating and drinking your way across town, everyone needs a tried-and-true going out bag.

Not only do these compact purses serve as a home for your most important possessions (wallet, phone, keys), they add style points to all of your weekend ensembles. In other words, they must merge form and function like no other handbag in your closet.

If you're still on the hunt for the perfect weekend purse, your search ends here. Ahead, find a few of our favorite going out bags, from chic handheld clutches to convenient crossbodies.

Going Out Bags: The Cleo

Our compact Cleo bag was basically designed for going out. With just enough room for your phone, keys, lip gloss, and credit cards, this small crossbody is so lightweight you'll forget you're even wearing it. The studded trim and buttery soft leather adds just enough edge.

Going Out Bags: The Fabian

For a going out bag that's part crossbody, part handheld clutch, meet our new Fabian bag. This Fall 2021 launch is as chic as it gets — it boasts an on-trend cloud-inspired silhouette, leather-trimmed framing, whip-stitched detailing, and detachable crossbody and wrist straps.

Going Out Bags: The Marcus

Meet your new goes-with-everything weekend bag. The Marcus is an instant going out classic — it's cute, understated, and incredibly practical. It features a full organizer complete with credit card slots, so you don't even have to carry a wallet. Plus, you can wear it as a crossbody bag or tuck in the strap to rock it as a slouchy clutch. (For a slightly smaller version, check out the Harbor bag.)

Going Out Bags: The Janna

The convertible Janna bag is form and function at its finest. With five convenient credit card slots inside, this studded crossbody basically eliminates the need for a separate wallet — perfect for a night out. Plus, it features a removable strap and can also be worn as a waist pack.

Going Out Bags: The Morgan

For a mid-size going out bag that can seamlessly transition from work to the weekend, consider the Morgan bag. This tote-slash-crossbody features a stylish herringbone pattern, comes in seven muted colors, and is big enough to house the essentials (and then some).  

Going Out Bags: The Sunny

If you love the herringbone pattern on the Morgan tote but prefer something smaller, meet the compact Sunny bag. With three interior organizers, this über-organized crossbody is perfect for a Saturday night spent bar and restaurant hopping. Remove the strap, and you have a stylish clutch fit for a black tie affair.

Going Out Bags: The Lee

Our new Lee bag hits what we call the "crossbody trifecta": lightweight ease, heirloom craftsmanship, and pockets where you need them (including a signature hidden cell phone pocket). Plus, it's incredibly cute — we can't get over the woven exterior!
