As much as we’d all like to buy a boatload of new clothes and shoes every season, that’s just not realistic. Not only is it pretty bad for the environment, but it’s also financially impossible for most people.

If you’re watching your spending right now and can only afford to buy a select few new items for fall/winter, consider investing in a handbag. Unlike a sweater or jeans that you can only wear once or twice a week, a gorgeous handbag can be an everyday accessory you use to elevate your OOTD.

Not sure which purse to pick this season? Consider the five handbag trends below that are going to be really popular over the next few months. They’ll all look good with just about everything in your closet.

1. Minimalism

For a while, it was all about bold, attention-grabbing accents on handbags. Now the pendulum has swung in the other direction, and minimalism is in. If you're looking for a versatile style, choose one of these unadorned styles that put the focus on gorgeous leather and ccraftsmanship
