This Winter season the selection of handbags is fresh, fun, and diverse. Rima Kh, from fashionisers.com lists the top trends in handbags this season.
Rima mentions that although this season we’ve seen more small and medium sized bags, there are still big bags to choose from in certain designer collections like Ralph Lauren or Moschino. Messenger bags and shoulder bags were a hit on the runways of some of the top designers, including Marc Jacobs, Versace, and Christian Dior. These bags are great because their super comfortable and it’s so much more convenient to wear a purse over your shoulders.
If you prefer to hold your handbags by hand instead, your in luck because satchels made a statement this season in beautiful prints and fabrics. Whether you want snakeskin in a bold color, or an intricate printed design, there’s lots to choose from this season in satchels.
If you’re looking for more of a professional bag to suit your professional look, opt for one of the many briefcase bags we’ve seen this season. You can find these bags from designers like Roberto Cavalli, Hugo Boss, and Dolce & Gabbana.
Perhaps you want a handbag that is a bit crazier. Opt for a bag in a neon color. Like Rima points out, if the sun isn’t shining during the cold, winter days, these bags will give you a little bit of light in your life! Just be careful matching these bright bags with your outfit. Try pairing them with a neutral-colored outfit so that your outfit doesn’t become too distracting.
Next on the list for handbag trends this season are bags with a fringe. If you’re going for that slightly rugged, Western vibe these bags are the perfect fit.
Last but not least, handbags with chains are making quite a splash this season. My personal favorites are designed by Stella McCartney. With a myriad of styles, colors, and sizes to suit any taste, these handbags are the perfect choice this season.

Wearing fur can be intimidating. Whether it’s real fur or faux fur, here are some tips to get you saying, “Fur sure!” to wearing fur.
Think back: Perhaps you’ve forgotten about a fur item that you already own. Instead of going all out in a fur coat, opt for an item with a bit of a fur trim like the jacket featured below.
Keep it simple: This will be easy if you already own boots. Do you have any boots with an exterior fur lining? If not, go get yourself a pair! Your feet will thank you for the extra warmth, and it’s a super simple way to rock some fur in your outfit!
Fur on top: Don’t catch a cold this winter. Surely you’ll remember to bundle up in layers, but don’t forget about your head! Keep your ears warm and your bedhead covered with a fur hat.
Be bold: While the first three ideas play with fur subtly, you can kick it up a notch with a good fur vest. Be bold and confident! If you don’t think you can pull it off, no one else will believe it either!
Go for it:Do you want to be a modern-day Cruella? Go for it, girl! You’ll definitely be warm in a full fur coat.
