As the so-called “crazy bag lady” by my closest fashion friends and my boyfriend (who admittedly carries the weight of my purse hunting obsession with the storage space I’ve slowly taken up), I know a thing or two about handbags. From $20 in finds saved to luxury shopping on the high streets for which it took me years to save, to call myself anything other than a handbag enthusiast would be an understatement. So when I say that next year’s biggest handbag trend will continue to be understated, elegant styles that blend seamlessly into any era of your wardrobe, you better tell me believe.
While handbag trends come and go, there will always be a dedicated section in my heart for the timeless, “buy now, wear forever” staples. bags that look incredibly expensive. For the most part, any neutral-colored bag with a simple design and no logo will do, although more and more designers are pushing the boundaries of minimalist handbags that are still fun without being too over-the-top.
Below, browse some minimalist handbags at every price point that look incredibly luxurious. If you buy several from this list, don’t say I didn’t warn you!
