No matter how many bags I cram into my cupboard-like closet, I constantly bring home more. (I’m like your friend who’s keen on taking in one stray kitten after another, except with bags.) Some people might claim this obsession is “unhealthy” (ahem, my SO), but I quickly dismiss his comments when that dream bag arrives at my door.

Speaking of those must-have accessories I’m eyeing, this season's abundantly stylish selections will end up on every fashion girl's wish list. You'll find yourself reveling with joy over that watermelon beaded tote or pastel-colored mini bag all the models are carrying. Before you decide on the one (or two) bags to buy, consider all your options, below. These are the best bags of 2018.
