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 S.O.), but I quickly dismiss his judgements when that dream bag arrives at my door.

I'm not alone. This year's abundantly stylish selections are on every fashion girl's wish list. Are you not giddy about logo totes, or those pastel-colored mini bags 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.

Snakeskin booties are in abundance this season, if you haven't noticed. So why not go one step further and add a snakeskin purse to your wardrobe too. We love the geometric shape of this one from Mango.

Zara text print shopper, $46

SHOP IT

This clutch clearly draws its inspiration from Off-White, famous for their accessories featuring quirky quotes and phrases. The Zara version is, however, about 96 percent cheaper than its designer counterpart. Sold.

Delaroq tote in pitch black, $495

SHOP IT

Designer Jennifer Lyu launched her line of contemporary handbags called Delaroq after stints at fashion houses like Louis Vuitton, Prada, and 3.1 Phillip Lim. Her first drop consists of structured, sleek, environmentally-friendly totes and crossbody bags all made from excess or stocked materials. Since the accessories are made from upcycled fabrics, the bags come in limited quantities...get yours before they're gone.

4 The Royals-Inspired Bag

Topshop metal handle mini bag, $40

SHOP IT

This fancy little boxy-shaped bag looks rather regal (its similar to ones Meghan Markle has carried). The perfect accessory for showing off your ladylike side when meeting your S.O.'s parents for the first time. Style with black tights and a dress with a sweet peter pan collar.

5 The Logo Bag

Fendi Kan velvet shoulder bag, $6,500

SHOP IT

Fendi is having a moment thanks to major stars like the Kardashians and Hadids galavanting about town in the label. If you want a logo-splashed piece (and why wouldn't you? the look is oh-so in right now), this handbag features the iconic print on the flap and gold hardware for that luxe look. Add to your birthday or holiday wish list ASAP.

6 The Woven Bag

Faithfull the Brand, $26

SHOP IT

Peruse most retailer websites and you'll find a straw bag or picnic-inspired wicker tote. This whimsical accessory will brighten up your dreary all-black winter outfits. If you want to go matchy-matchy, style this particular handbag with a polka dot blouse.

7 The Micro Bag

Jacquemus, $795

SHOP IT

Both Emily Ratajkowski and Gigi Hadid love this Jacquemus "Le Chiquita" mini bag. The pint-size accessory only fits your phone, credit cards, and keys so you don't overpack for a night out. Keep your eyes on the item though—its small size makes it easy to lose once you've had a martini or two.

8 The Beaded Bag

Susan Alexandra, $185

SHOP IT

Remember the mini beaded bags you carried around as a child? This Susan Alexandra option is the adult version, but still with a playful element in the watermelon design. This fun weekend bag will let everyone know you don't take life too seriously.

9 The PVC Bag

Staud, $210

SHOP IT

See-through accessories, though trendy, aren't practical. Staud solved this problem by including an opaque pastel-colored pouch inside its clear plastic bag. Now you can carry around items like tampons or floss in peace.

10 The Trend-Driven Bag

Cult Gaia, $80

SHOP IT

This accessories label with a cult fashion following released a must-have design, called the "Dome" clutch. The cage-like piece features lightweight bamboo in a curved U shape and a collapsible handle. If you're looking for a bag to 'gram, this one is it.

11 The Belt Bag

Marc Jacobs, $350

SHOP IT

This belt bag can be worn as-is or turned into a crossbody bag by changing the straps. Depending on your outfit, this versatile function can completely change up your look. You may never need another bag.

12 The Embellished Strap Bag

Rebecca Minkoff, $195

SHOP IT

Ever since Fendi came out with interchangeable bag straps, other designers have followed suit. Rebecca Minkoff puts her own spin on the trend with this floral appliqué piece. You can go from daytime casual to nighttime fancy by removing the strap for a top handle–only look.

13 The Ring Bag

Simon Miller, $590

SHOP IT

Last season, you saw this bag all over Fashion Week, but now there's a new colorway to obsess over. The white leather paired with a marble-like ring handle is super sleek and perfect for your winter white outfits. Prepare to receive many compliments on it as soon as you walk into the office.

14 The Mesh Bag

Clare V., $99

SHOP IT

Forget rummaging through your large tote like a maniac just to dig for chapstick or loose change. This macramé clutch displays all your items for easy access (though you might want to contain your coins in a smaller pouch without holes).

15 The Updated Fanny Pack

Elizabeth and James, $195

SHOP IT

If you like your fanny pack plain and simple, grab this Elizabeth and James navy option. Take a tip from the models and wear it slung over one shoulder across your chest. No one said this accessory has to go around your waist. This item looks best with a graphic tee and frayed jeans.
