2016 Trending Handbags

Just like many women I have a thing for handbags. I like to buy quality, which means a little more, but I find the purses last a lot longer and have a more substantial and quality feel. I don’t buy a ton, but I do usually treat myself to one or two a year. Sadly, I feel so out of touch with fashion lately so I’ve been doing some browsing to see what’s trending and what I actually like.

I was surprised to find drawstring bucket bags are making a come back. I remember my mom having one in the early 90’s or maybe it was the late 80’s. Call me crazy, but I’m kind of liking them and also wandering if my mom still has hers. Here are some of my favorites.

The fringe too… I think it looks good, but then I also think about the reality. Will there be tangles? There will be, who are we kidding? I’m not one to be dainty with my purse. It will get chunked into the backseat, thrown on the floor, and tossed around. Fringe might be too high maintenance for me, but then again – it’s so cute.

Zac Posen also has these great bags – Eartha bags. The one on the right is actually quite a bit larger, so maybe for storage. It seems structured bags are also popular right now and I get why. I can’t put my finger on it, but I like it’s angles.

I’m thinking these are my top six contenders for my next handbag. What do you think? Or do you have better suggestions? I’m always open to suggestions.
