The best designer handbags and essential styles to buy now
While even some of the best designer handbag trends can go in and out of style, there are a handful of silhouettes that stand the test of time.
Consider these styles the ultimate handbag essentials. Similar to a black blazer, white t-shirt or pair of jeans, a good handbag is just as important in the wardrobe – and there’s a version for every occasion, season and personal style.
From elevated totes to structured styles, from fun-sized to functional (pretty doesn’t mean impractical), here’s our guide to all the essential handbag silhouettes and styles.
Raised shopping bags
No more boring tote bags! It’s time to invest in something as spacious, practical and versatile, but much less expected.
When your schedule calls for something a little more casual, leave the leather behind and throw on something nylon or canvas.
The small but mighty
Despite their small appearance, miniature bags make a big impression. After coming back for several seasons, they’ve proven to be an enduring style rather than a fleeting trend.
The new evening bags
Take a break from those stiff, bulky clutches and opt for something softer and more comfortable to carry. Plus, these styles will suit all your evening needs.
Minimalist shoulder bags
Sleekly crafted, timeless in silhouette, yet no less impactful, the classic shoulder bag gets a chic update you’ll want to wear every day.
The summer touch
It’s always nice to have something seasonal to bring in the summer, whether it’s woven, canvas or colorful.
These refined day bags are for the modern woman and are sure to make a great first impression.
