Style Guide: 5 Tote-Worthy Handbags

Style Guide: 5 Tote-Worthy Handbags

Let’s face it: Handbags are a girl’s home away from home, so having a bag that properly stores all of your necessities and looks extra stylish is ultra important. The ideal handbag is both practical and stylish, both trendy and comforting. And, like most things in your closet, a handbag comes with a shelf life. So don’t be afraid to try new styles and branch out from your go-to comfort colors.

The New Year is always a great excuse to breathe new life into your wardrobe. Remember, because a handbag really ties an entire outfit together, this accessory has the power to alter the fate of your ensemble. This year, bucket bags and backpacks were among the hottest trends. They made their mark down the fashion week runways, so expect these styles to be popping up everywhere. To help narrow the search for the best bags currently dominating the market, I’ve styled five outfit-elevating handbags that incorporate the season’s trendiest textures, colors and silhouettes…
