If, like me, you like to keep the clothing in your wardrobe pretty simple (but of course, still stylish), an easy way to ensure your outfits don't look boring is through weaving in statement accessories. Whether it's with interesting earrings, standout shoes, or—the subject of today's post—a unique handbag, there's no better way to upgrade your usual all-black outfit, or jeans-and–T-shirt look than with a little accoutrement.
With that in mind, today I've rounded up 23 of my favorite eye-catching handbags for you to shop all in one place. After all, there's no time like the start of a new year (or the days leading into it) to give your wardrobe a little sartorial boost. And no matter what your budget or style may be, I have a feeling you'll have too many favorites to choose from. Just keep scrolling to see and shop what made my edit below!
