Far from fading into the background, bags were even bigger—quite literally–on the fall and winter runways. Which comes as a relief as we continue to be out and about, longing for more than just a canvas grocery tote. Whether you're looking for something shiny and new like a fabulous chain-link bag, or simply need a back-to-work accessory boost (maybe a very polished single strap shoulder bag?), we've broken down the biggest winter bag trends for you.
The Big Leagues
Is bigger actually better? These bags will argue yes. For winter, ditch your multiple carrying vessels for an extra-large tote that can handle your laptop, an extra pair of shoes, and so much more.
No Weak Links
More posh than punky, chunky chain-link bags are still trending. Choose the season's "it" bag with either a gold or silver metal to suit your style.
The Softer Side
Shearlings and faux furs won't just live on winter jackets this season- they're leaving their huggable mark on handbags too.
Lock It In
The Chloe Paddington bag was once the talk of the town. This winter, locks are having their moment yet again. There's no better way to secure your goods than with one of these padlock-adorned purses.
All the Single Straps
A bit retro and undeniably-sleek, these single strap shoulder bags can be handheld or conveniently cradled under your arm.
