When it comes to winter wardrobes, it’s all about combining style with function, to keep yourself warm and fashionable at the same time. While bag trends come and go, there are some handbag staples that are timeless and essential for any winter accessory wardrobe. With these five luxury women’s handbags, you’ll be sure to have the bag you need for any winter occasion from holiday parties to adding that extra energy on the grayest of days. Maybe you already have some of these bag styles in your collection, or, if not, it’s a good excuse to go shopping right now.
Get your bling on for holiday parties
When it’s time for the hottest parties of the season, not just any bag will do. A metallic bag is a definite party essential. Maison Valentino is known for its Valentino Garavani accessories with head-turning stud accents, which are perfect for special nights out. The Valentino Garavani Roman Stud shoulder bag in antique brass quilted metallic leather is a must-have gold evening bag. With a detachable handle and chain strap, you can hold it as a clutch, or wear it as a crossbody or shoulder bag.
Go for the top for extra cold days
When you have lots of layers to deal with, a shoulder or crossbody bag can be less than convenient. A bag that you can hang on your lower arm, or hold by hand can be an ideal style that you can just grab as you head out the door, especially when you are wearing gloves. A hobo bag, like Valentino Garavani Rockstud Hobo bag in grainy calfskin leather with a hook closure, is one style to add for this essential winter handbag staple.
Keep it neutral for day to night
You can’t go wrong with winter white and that goes for coats as well as handbags. A white handbag can also provide a nice contrast for dark coats in winter and it’s also a staple to take your look from day, to night, for after work dinner and drinks. La Medusa from Versace in white, with the fashion house’s iconic accents with a Medusa plaque and the option for a white chain or leather handle, is a neutral winter white, while giving you that extra style edge.
Color is a must in the winter, whether you go for a bag in red, or another pop color, and a colorful bag works for almost any occasion. In a classic red, Miu Miu’s Miu Coffer handbag in the fashion house’s iconic matelassé motif, is sure to become a wardrobe staple that you can also pull out for playful spring and summer looks.
Go bold on gray days
On those extra gray days, you want a bag that can add an extra dose of fun to your outfit. A bold coat can do the trick, but what’s great about a bold handbag is that it can change the entire look of an outfit, adding playfulness. Dolce & Gabbana doesn’t disappoint when it comes to creativity, and their bags are an instant mood boost. The bags in the Joy Therapy collection are just what you need for something extra bold. A multicolored bag with fusible rhinestone embellishments and a DG clasp was designed with the joy, positivity, and energy in mind that’s ideal for any winter day.
By adding these handbags to your winter rotation you’ll be sure that you have the right bag for every occasion. Winter is a great time for a handbag refresh and these are the bags you might even end up using all year long.
