The Season’s Must-Have Handbags that Define Fabulous!

Casual Attire

I’m so excited to share the handbags that will steal the spotlight this Spring & Summer! And here’s the thing about bags—they are statement makers!

In fact, your handbag can make or break your level of chic—and unlike other elements of our wardrobe that we may buy, wear for a while, and discard, these are pieces we live with for ages. I can testify to this, having spent a copious amount of time in my clients’ closets over the years—as well as my own. It’s a rare thing to see bags let go. Why am I telling you this? Because bags are investment pieces, so, buy well and what you love!

This season’s handbags are no exception to the “show-stoppers” rule. From oversized totes and satchels to bags in raffia and those sporting the croc look, what I’m seeing is incredible! Some options are more suited to chic, dressier looks, while others will take you anywhere. Regardless of which you choose, each of these bags is stunning and fun!

It is my hope that you love these as much as I do. Have a wonderful time perusing what we’ve shopped and finding that perfect bag for you! You’ll find categories that include totes, shoulder bags, clutches, top-handle bags, and crossbody bags. How fabulous!


Though you will see a few smaller iterations of this category, most are oversized, following this season’s trend. Oversized totes are my personal favorite! There is tons of fun to be had with these new arrivals!

Shoulder Bags

These timeless treasures are always a hit and easy to wear, and they pack a seriously chic punch. They are so gorgeous, and I’m sure you’ll agree!

Clutch Bags

These adorable bags seem to be everywhere this season. Note that many come with a shoulder strap, making them very versatile. You will love these

Top-Handle Bags

I love the chic of top-handle bags. They make such a statement. I think as you shop these delicious bags, you will agree.

Crossbody Bags

These are my go-to, can’t-live-without bags! I am drawn to and own a large number of crossbody bags. I love them for their easy, hands-free nature and their chic.

These fun and fabulous finds will serve you endlessly and pop your look! Each is a timeless treasure!

Summing it All Up

If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know that handbags are the second “tell” of your level of chic, right after shoes. This is why I encourage you to invest in them. You spend more time with your bags than most things in your life, so be sure you’re possessed by whatever you purchase. If you buy well, you will have your bags forever!

And before I leave you to your shopping, I would like to share a short story from my youth.

When I was 16 years old, one of my aunts took me on my first shopping trip to Bergdorf Goodman, where she shared a life-altering principle with me. She said…

“It is better to have a few special (expensive) treasures than a whole lot of (cheap) stuff.”

This resonated so strongly with me that I have always remembered her counsel. If you were to look in my closet today, you would see that I live the wisdom she shared with me that day. I am passing this on to you as it meant so much to me. Though this concept most assuredly applies to every aspect of your wardrobe, it definitely applies to handbags.

Happy hunting!
