5 French Style Medium Handbags

Medium handbags are my favorite size handbag. I recently wrote about the French girl handbags you should own, and a medium leather handbag is definitely one of my favorites. I have the most medium-sized handbags than any other size (more than mini and tote, for example). They are the most versatile and useful everyday handbags if you ask me. 

My APC Ella bag is one example of a medium-sized French handbag that I use on the regular! It’s handy for holding my essentials and a little bit more. So I might grab it when heading out to the boulangerie for a croissant and sandwich for example, or picking up jewelry to use as gifts!

Dragon Diffusion is a handbag brand from Belgium which makes gorgeous woven leather handbags. Jeanne Damas is a fan of the brand and she has been spotted with several models which is why I’m including this bag in the list! They are an old-school brand and only sell through luxury e-commerce sites, so you have to see what models are available when shopping. This one is the Triple Jump.
