6 Refreshing Handbag Trends You’ll Love This Year
The days of conservative bags are behind us, ladies, so start transferring your essentials over to a purse with a big dose of character. This year it’s all about vivid colors and maximalist details—but in structured shapes. Here, six handbag trends for 2017 that pack a punch.
The Circle Crossbody Bag
A sturdy round bag takes the graphic trend you’ll see in prints and incorporates it into the shape itself. Consider it the only acceptable way to wear an all black bag for the next 12 months (at least).
The Colorful Carryall Shopper Bag
But if you can’t handle that kind of pressure, just dump everything you have into the biggest purse you can find—just not your conservative black leather tote of yore. We’re talking flowers, stripes, studs, anything that makes a (very loud) statement.
The Bag That Looks Like Anything But
Designers let their inner child run wild this year and have crafted their bags to look more like toys than actual purses. Consider it a nod to your very first pink fuzzy kitty cat purse, just a little more chic.
