We love shoes just as much as the next girl, but if there’s one accessory we can’t stop adding to our wardrobes, it’s handbags.

Crossover Bags

The top handle bag is a sartorial favorite, but it’s hard to find a style that looks somewhat unique. In comes the crossover, a slight but style-enhancing detail that brands are incorporating into their summer collections.

Abstract Bags

The more abstract and surprising your handbag is, the better. Case in point: these shapely-handled bucket bags.

Pencil Case Bags

We’ve graduated from using pencils and highlighters 8 hours a day, but that doesn’t mean that we’re over the cute-sy pencil cases we carried them in. Thankfully, our favorite designers are bringing pencil cases back with these long, skinny shoulder bags.

Orange Bags

First there was millennial pink, then Gen Z yellow. Now, the color au moment is orange. And if you’re looking to embrace this trend, the best place to start is in the bag department.

Baguette Bags

They might not actually fit a baguette (or much at all really), but who even cares when your bag is this cute?

Kleenex Bags

Get it? Because they look like a box of tissues. We’re betting big on this new box-y bag style.

Fringe Beach Bags

Since Jacquemus introduced this oversized tote in his SS19 collection, we’ve been seeing every fast-fashion brand, from Mango to Zara, jump on-board — and good thing they did, because at this rate, there won’t be a single Le Baci Bag left for us to get our hands on.

Barrel Bags

These mini duffles have a long history, with Louis Vuitton’s ubiquitous logo’d silhouette going down as one of the early noughties’ most iconic handbags. And just like most trends from that time, these are back and better than ever.
