Ever see something so good you can’t forget it? As a fashion editor, you can imagine that I see a lot of images of clothes and accessories each day, almost to the point that I’ve become a bit desensitized. Things really have to impress me to get to the point of memorability, and well, these bags have passed the test. I really don’t discriminate when it comes to purses; from teeny tiny like Jacquemus’s Le Chiquito to the XXL handbag trend dominating Milan right now, I’ll take them all.
Bursting with color and made in a plethora of whimsical shapes, the purses that have managed to grab my attention also happen to be some of the huge styles making waves within the fashion crowd: Take Prada’s Cleo bag or just about anything Bottega Veneta. A cute bag you’ll love to wear time and time again is one of the smartest wardrobe investments you can make. For one, you can wear it unashamedly every day, and the right one adds instant elevation–even to an over-worn lounge set.
Below, I’ve listed all of the gorgeous bags that have made such an impression, they’re practically seared into my brain. Whether you’re in need of a classic black bag to start your collection, or are in the market for a trendy purse to add some spice to your outfits, I’ve laid them all out here. Chances are you won’t be able to forget them either.
