Just because the weather is cold and gloomy doesn't mean that you have to sacrifice an ounce of style, and there's no reason why your winter fashion can't be as fun as your flirty spring and summer look. To take your cold-weather style to the next level, it's all about accessories, and the bolder the better. Think scarves, hats, gloves, and fun handbags. To upgrade your bag game this winter there are some trends that will make you stand out from the crowd.
A classic tote is a staple for any bag collection, and this winter, the graphic tote is in, in a big way. You can pick a tote that expresses your personality with quotes or a few words, or a design that fits your outfit or mood. What's great about a tote is that it combines function with style. If you want a tote that will really turn heads, check out the collection of Valentino Garavani bags for women
. The Maison Valentino has a style to complete every look, like the Valentino Garavani 08 San Gallo Edition Atelier tote bag in embroidered canvas, with leather handles and a detachable canvas shoulder strap to carry everything that you need throughout your day.
Chains for Days
If you want to add some edge to your winter look, you'll want to pick up a handbag with bold chain straps. You can take a cue from Valentino Garavani collection here too, with the Valentino Garavani Rockstud Alcove clutch in calfskin leather. A detachable chain strap with iconic studs in antique brass-finish metal hardware makes it easy to carry the bag on your shoulder, while to wear it crossbody you can use the detachable leather shoulder strap.
A handbag with a unique shape will wow people any time of year, and this winter, asymmetrical bags are hot. Ovals with unique cutouts, hearts, and unusual triangles are all game for this trend, and the more creative the style - the better. The Hourglass bag from The Hacker Project - a collaboration between Gucci and Balenciaga - infuses an iconic Balenciaga silhouette with Gucci design. The hourglass-shaped bag in green and red leather is perfect for the winter season.
When the temperature really dips, you want a coat that is warm and puffy, and puffers are the coat to keep you both warm and looking your best. This winter, puffers are moving into the realm of handbags too. This is the handbag to grab when you want your look to stand out with a soft touch. The padded cassette bag from Bottega Veneta, gives you a lot of options to try out the padded bag trend, with 15 colors to choose from in padded leather. Other ways to try this look are with bags made from the same material as your favourite puffer, like Moncler's Snow Shoulder bag.
Warm and Fuzzy
Other desirable winter coats are warm and fuzzy and there's no reason why your handbag can't be like that too. You can add some extra coziness to your look with a furry handbag, even a faux fur one. Prada's faux fur fabric tote bag will give you that winter texture that adds an extra element of warmth to any outfit, and you'll also be on point with the tote trend.
The more fun you have with your winter wardrobe the easier it will be to get motivated to go outside even on the coldest winter days. Adding one of these on-trend handbags to your wardrobe will do just that.
