When it comes to handbag shopping, we tend to either go for an investment style (you know, those silhouettes that withstand the test of time) or a more trend-driven piece that feels of the moment. But it’s those special silhouettes that have both modern and classic qualities that feel like fashion gold. Well, if you’re in the market for something new to kick off 2019, this is your moment because there’s a handful of gorgeous new It bags that feel fresh for the New Year but will also hold their style value for seasons, thanks to their timeless designs.
To help you sort through it, we rounded up the only styles worth considering below. Need to replace your 9-to-5 carryall? Covered. Looking for an updated going-out satchel? We’ve got you. Yep, all the bags you need are right here, courtesy of some of our favorite fashion girls. And remember, we think these finds will be in style until at least 2025—so go wild.
From the brand known for dropping It bags on the regular, Staud's latest style is one for the books, with its modern trapezoid shape in always-in-style mock croc.
Yes, we've seen the rise of playful beaded numbers over the last season, but the trend isn't going away anytime soon. This colorful option from up-and-coming Copenhagen-based brand Résumé is a fun alternative to the standard going-out clutch you've used forever.
While nylon belt bags are still around, we have a feeling we'll be seeing more sporty messenger bags throughout the coming years—like this must-have Prada satchel.
If it's a fun party bag you're in the market for, don't pass up this Balenciaga stunner. While this specific shape is very right now, we have a feeling it may become a new classic in a few years. And hey, you can't go wrong with glitter, ever.

Slung across the shoulders of the top women in the industry, one of Loewe's latest options is elegant, forward, and practical. You could literally use it every day for the next five years, and it would never get old.
Made in Italy, this silhouette adds a polished yet cool twist to anything you're wearing. It's quite frankly shaping up to be the bag of choice for the modern woman.
