In terms of this trend, size does matter. The bigger the better when it comes to these slouchy totes.

Party season just might be coming to an end, but silver bags will last forever.

Edgy Elements

Surprisingly edgy detailing and hardware on handbags are what is currently getting me excited for the new year. Thanks to Diesel and Miu Miu, specifically, I feel like this will be the bag trend I'll be leaning into most.
