To some women, a handbag is more than an accessory or a way to carry their necessary belongings with them (whether it’s an iPhone and MAC lipstick or a Ziploc bag of crumbling animal crackers) – it’s a fashion statement. However, it goes beyond that; handbags are a fun way to let people know who you are without saying a word. With so many styles, colors, and materials, though, shopping for the handbag might be intimidating. So, we’ve compiled this list of the season’s hottest handbags straight from the runway.
Chain Purses are aptly named for the handles being made of metal chains and they add a hint of glitz and glamour to any outfit.

Plus, they’re incredibly versatile and not just for nights out… they’re great for trips to the grocery store and everyday use.
Slouchy Hobo Bags
The big draw of hobo bags is that they hold a lot, which is great if you’re like me and always end up carrying everything but the kitchen sink.

They’re stylish, yet practical and perfect for anyone from students to moms. Also, they come in cute patterns that will be sure to add some flair to your wardrobe.
Over-sized Clutches and Mini Bags
This season, size really does matter! We love over-sized clutches because they have more capacity than a typical clutch (double or triple). Also, these larger than life bags effortlessly transition from day to night and add a wow factor to your formal attire.

On the other hand, mini bags are great for minimalists or a night out… you grab your keys and cash and go! The pint sized handbags don’t take up space in your closet and they’re fuss-free. What more could you ask for?!
Fringe is a definite must this season! Fringe bags pair with suede like peanut butter to jelly, adds bohemian flair to any outfit, and is reminiscent of summer music festivals, love beads, and flower head wreaths. So groovy!

They’re simple, yet classic. The flat satchel is the large, practical accessory that goes well with any outfit.

They’re perfect for the no-nonsense woman that doesn’t want to change handbags throughout the week. The Swiss Army Knife of purses, it’s a must for any handbag collector.
