While we change our outfits every day, one thing stays pretty consistent when it comes to our wardrobe: our handbag. Sure, many of us have a collection of colors, styles, shapes, and sizes, but we typically settle on one and use it every day for an extended amount of time. I have my favorite brands and am not afraid to spend a little money on a handbag I love because I know I’ll carry it until the strap falls off. I’m always a sucker for a sale, which makes it a lot easier to splurge on a designer that I like. Because I carry the same purse every day for so long, I try to purchase one that’s not only trendy but also durable. My go-to type is a crossbody bag because it keeps my hands free for other things, and it’s really just more my style.
It’s always fun to see what styles and looks designers are coming up with this year, and because we’re feeling a little luxurious these days, we’ve put together a list of our favorite luxury crossbody bags. Not because we can afford to buy all of them or even want to, but because it’s just fun to look and dream (and sometimes wonder what they were thinking!).
