Looking for the ‘it’ bag? Join the ride! I rummaged through hundreds of handbag styles that hit the style shelf this year, and brought to you the bestest of the best. From drawstring beauties to metallic purses and graphic accessories, this year sure is a hoot! Hey guys it’s me Priya and today I bring you the trendiest handbags of 2017.

Patchwork backpacks

Prominently spotted in Tommy Hilfiger’s Spring 2017 Ready-to-Wear collection, denim patchwork handbags made their way to the street style with utmost ease. This quirky take on summer bags screams versatility; from picnics, shopping, and other daytime outings to weekend travels, the bags will be your go-to accessory for a long time.

Metallic satchels

Say it with shine! Metallic satchel bags – not just limited to silver and gold – are trending this year simply for the reason that this season is all about blending sheeny fabrics with statement motifs. Wish to make a statement without trying to hard? Metallic arm candies are the way to go!

Clinch – topped bags

My personal favourite, drawstring topped bags are the ultimate pick for this year! Go casual by teaming them up with a pair of denims and tee, or keep it simple and classy by pairing them up with a floral sundress.

Quote bags

Tees are passé, it’s all about saying what’s on your mind with bags! Quote bags with cool graphics are sassy, to say the least, and instantly grab the eye. Pick one in a neutral shade though – for versatility’s sake.

Handheld side strap bag

Are they a clutch? Are they a bag? Who knows. What we do know is that handheld bags put an end to our party accessory woes. Gotta hit the dance floor? Use the long strap! The thick handle over the bag can be left as is for a while.
