With the winter season in full swing, it’s time to start thinking about what handbags you’ll be sporting in the cold weather. During the cozy months you’ll want to store your wicker and straw handbags in the back of your closet, and say a temporary goodbye until Spring officially returns in March. There are a few key details that make for a perfect winter handbag, which usually consist of buttery leather, sherpa or fur fabrics, and of course sparkles for the holiday season.
While we love scarves, hats, and gloves, a good quality handbag is what pulls a winter outfit together. Some of our favorite handbag styles will persist into the new year while some trends will be left behind. In 2023 we can’t wait to debut our favorite plush, pillowy, and fuzzy bags- serving all the comfy and cozy looks. If you’re someone that loves winter fashion equipped with layers, fluffy accessories, and warm knitted pieces then these five handbag trends are for you. Keep scrolling to see the winter handbags we’re loving right now.
1. Fuzzy, Furry, & Sherpa Bags
With freezing temperatures here in the North East, an added layer of fuzzy warmth is not a bad idea. Pair these cozy winter handbags with a layered outfit on those frigid winter days. You’ll need every accessory you can to keep you warm.
2. Pillow Bags
Use this plush backpack during the day on your way to work and a pillow for later on the train ride home.
3. Crescent Bags
These crescent shaped bags are the ideal winter handbag, fitting comfortably over the shoulder even with a big puffer coat. This bag shape is in right now, spotted on models such as Kendall Jenner, Dua Lipa, and Hailey Bieber.
4. Metallic Bags
These metallic bags will catch everyone’s eye. Start the new year off shining bright and carry this trend though the holiday season into the Spring. Gold and silver are the perfect neutral colors to match all your winter outfits with. And they instantly elevate any winter outfits that may need an added layer of glam.
5. Large Tote Bags
Say goodbye to the micro bag craze of 2022, and say hello to large totes for the new year. We love these extra roomy totes that will fit all your everyday essentials. While micro bags will always make a fashion statement, these practical totes are best for everyday use.
