A handbag always has been, and always will be, a women’s ultimate fashion accessory. A great handbag is the essential building block of a complete, functional and stylish wardrobe. After this year’s international fashion month, the verdict for this season’s top picks is in. Think shearling, animal prints, and lovely fall colors all in soft leather. The hottest styles for 2012 / 2013 are the oversized clutch and the classic saddle bag.
The oversized Day Clutch
Some of us reserve our clutches for evenings, formal affairs, and night excursions. But ladies, this season let your clutch see the light of day!
Tip: Do NOT overfill your oversized clutch if you plan on carrying it in this trendy manner…you may end up with a broken arm or back pain! Ouchh!!
The saddle bag
A great complement to many of this season’s comfy-chic trends, the saddle bag puts a utilitarian-flavored twist on the classic handbag. Matched with a floaty, floral dress or boat-striped tee, this style creates an air of effortless ease.
